5-hour trip from Dubrovnik to the traditional village of Čilipi
Head to the village of Čilipi on a Sunday morning to take in some rural Croatian folk traditions. Upon arrival, sip some locally made dry fig and herb brandy and then stroll through the charming village, marveling at the rural architecture. Walk through the Sunday fair and perhaps buy a traditional handmade souvenir or perhaps some elegant embroideries. There’s also an option to attend mass in St Nicholas Church along with many of the locals, dressed in their traditional folk outfits. Visit the Konavle Ethnographic Museum and, in front of the church, watch a performance of typical folk dance and music. It will undoubtedly be an unforgettable travel experience.

We attended the mass but it was not...

We attended the mass but it was not English so we observed but couldn't really participate. We did enjoy the music and dancing. It would be nice if authentic food could be added to the tour.
Lovely to see the local dancing and crafts. Nice way to spend a Sunday morning although not much to see in the village. You get a free entry to the museum which is worth a bit of time and the welcome drink was nice. We arrived quite early and although the town is very nice, it is small and the 'wait' time for the performance was a little long. Overall though, a very nice excursion.
I was disappointed with this tour. Our guide left us to our own devices and unless you wanted to go to the Mass it was a wasted half day. I was not very excited with the dancing and the crafts, although beautiful were very expensive. It would have helped if the guide had explained things in the museum. J and H
