Meet your guide at the Old Town, or Stari Grad, in Dubrovnik and then hop in a comfortable mini-van for the 30-minute ride south to the village of Gruda. Enjoy the trip, taking in the eye-popping views of the shimmering Adriatic Sea and the Dubrovnik Riviera, while passing through small, sleepy seaside villages. Pause at a lookout point for a great photo opportunity. Once in Gruda, listen to a safety briefing from your guide and receive a helmet and other safety equipment. Then hop on your bike and start pedaling. Follow your guide, as you pass through ancient villages and a bucolic countryside of olive groves and citrus orchards, waterfalls and vineyards. Stop frequently to take photos and to listen to your guide regale you with stories of the local history and culture. The route goes by 17th-century windmills and 15th-century monasteries. See evidence of the Croatian War for Independence in buildings still pockmarked by bullet holes or partially ruined by bombs. After riding for a while, take a much-deserved break for a swim in a mountain stream, and then relax and eat a sandwich. For the final stop of the tour, take another break at a local winery to sample some award-winning southern Dalmatian wine. Learn about the characteristics of wine in the area as you sip a glass or two. And then travel back to Dubrovnik via comfortable minivan.
