Departure Time

2:30 PM
Say 'dovidjenja,' or 'goodbye,' to Dubrovnik as the comfortable coach snakes its way down the southern Dalmatian coast with the priceless Adriatic views to your right, to the rustic Konavle Valley, about 20 miles (30 km) south of the city. 

Located at the southernmost tip of Croatia, near the border of Montenegro, Konavle Valley is flanked by the Adriatic Sea and the foothills of Sniježnica Mountain. The valley boasts ample amounts of vineyards, as the climactic and geological conditions are ripe for winemaking. 

Stop in the village of Brajkovici to visit a family-run wine cellar. Learn about grape cultivation in the area, as well as, about the age-old knowledge that local winemaking experts use to produce excellent vino. 

Listen to your guide tell the history of the area, as you voyage from charming village to village, passing by olive orchards and citrus groves as your vehicle winds its way through the rural landscape. 

Visit a few different wineries and meet the local winemakers, hearing about how the produce wine and learning about the chief characteristics of southern Dalmatian wine. Sample the best reds and whites on offer and don’t skip on the sweet dessert wines. At one vineyard, indulge in a typical ‘peasant’s lunch,’ that will be certain to soak up some of that wine in your stomach. Feast on eggs, cheese, bacon and bread and be sure to save some room for a slice of traditional cake served at the last stop. 

Get back on the wine ‘train’ for the final stop: the coastal village of Ljuta, where you’ll stop by an ancient flour mill and watch a wool-making demonstration, performed by locals in historical garb. 

After, hop back on the coach for the short ride back to Dubrovnik, returning to the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ in the early evening.

Croatia Excursions
Experience the traditional and original village ambience on this marvellous excursion to Konavle. After paying a visit to the first winery, absorb the region by riding on a tourist train through its rich vineyards. Traditional customs are presented in the village of Ljuta in the water-powered mill where you get to see how flour was once produced.

You may also find it particularly interesting to pick at the traditional ploughman’s lunch of bacon, onions and hard-boiled eggs served in a customary manner of the old folks from Konavle who laboured in the fields.

Great wee affordable tour
nickstriplights
, May 2019
This is a great wee tour to go on - its not too expensive, most of the wines are affordable if you wish to grab a bottle, and there are some stunning views, and quaint vineyards to visit. When we went there were roughly 26 or so people, which i think is probably the limit. If the bus had of been full then i'm not entirely sure everyone would have fit in for the tastings etc at each winery. The wines themself are nice enough, and most bottles can be picked up for no more than 10 euros. If you are collected early then be prepared for a bit of a wait if there is any hold ups or delays for people being picked up.

The tour delivered on both the wine and cultural front. While we were with a rather large group, you didn't really notice. The pickup and drop offs were optimised, touring bus was big enough, the train was comfortable and people could board and offboard quickly and the wineries were always ready, having setup everything in time. So there was hardly any waiting times, wine was lovely and we saw an old mill and heard about the history of the region from the winemakers. It was so much more than just a winetour, there was a whole cultural aspect we didn't expect, but which was lovely. It was well organised and comfortable. Great way to see another part of Croatia and enjoy nice wine and food. Highly recommended!

Very commercialized tour. Little to no information provided about wines, it was like Here is merlo, drink and you can buy it over there. Red wine tasting outdoors when it is 30-32 degrees celcium is a torture. Wines were very average. The only good ones were the whites at Karaman, but 30 euros for a white dry and 75 euros for a dessert white, even for exclusive local grape, is too much. Some sweet delightes were also offered and I bought orange zest in sugar only to find out that its best-before date was a half a year ago and it was cheaper to buy it in supermarket or in duty free. Waste of time.

overall, a fun trip into the countryside and meeting local wine makers. we reconfirmed our trip and our pickup time the day prior yet when we arrived, the transfer vehicle had to double check that we were on the tour. a little hiccup that was quickly fixed but it took me by surprise since we had just reconfirmed... the bus to Konavle Valley was entertaining. we learned some local history and i found our guide to be very engaging. the white wines were excellent at every stop. the reds left me a little underwhelmed but i come from California so i have high expectations. some of the liqueurs and dessert wines really surprised me. they were quite good! do not expect to have a meal out of this trip. uncooked bacon, raw green onions and hard boiled eggs do not constitute a lunch to me but i get the concept of the peasants lunch. and i was quite surprised that i liked the bacon so much! would i do it again? probably not but it was entertaining and a decent value for the money.

poorly organized. bad guides. tour in both German and English took lots of time. Too many people, not everyone got a seat at the stops. stop at mill was irrelevant. lunch turned out to be bread and boiled egg. should have had water on the bus, old people were suffering. no cellars. very little wine.

Tour was great fun. Enjoyed the experience, the owners of the vineyards were not at all pushy in trying to sell produce. It has been a long time since I rode a kiddy train ride - great fun
