What You Can Expect

Dubrovnik Countryside Bike Tour Including Wine Tasting

Enjoy a bike tour and take in Dubrovnik's beautiful surroundings!

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.

I could not have asked for a better way to spend my day! My guide for the day was Karlo, and he was professional, attentive, and informative from the very beginning. Karlo went above and beyond to ensure the group of riders all got the best experience out of our bike ride. The sights were beautiful, and lunch by the river was a big plus in my book. The wine tasting portion of the tour was a tad rushed, in my opinion, but it was overall good.

A great chance to ride around the Croatian countryside and see some different sights, small villages and a fresh water spring. Our guides Mario and Dario were great, full of lots of stories, organised our lunch and helped some of us over the little stream with our bikes. I would thoroughly recommend.

My friend and I were apparently the only ones to sign up that day, so we had a personal tour guide. He was really good about adjusting the pace and path we took to our needs. I can't remember his name because it was a few months ago but he was funny and fun to spend the day with. The countryside was so beautiful and I highly recommend this tour.

The tour was fabulous. Good bikes, plenty of water and lunch provided. Dubrovnik country side was really pretty, the river was beautiful and refreshing to swim in and our guide Ivan was very friendly and provided a v interesting account of Croatian history. Would highly recommend.

A good day, knowledgeable and friendly guide. The wine tasting wasn't very exciting, would have been better if there had been some more interaction. Worthwhile, though

The bike and wine tour was a great succes! We were lucky enough to have our guide Karlo all to ourselves, which made the trip extra fun. The route was breathtakingly beautiful, especially the offroad parts that Karlo took us on. The wine tasting, however, was quite meager. The manager seemed eager to see us leave because his shift was done, and he didn't tell much about the 3 wines we got to taste. Thanks to Karlo, we has a great day! A piece of advice for Viator would be to adjust the directions to the departure point: this is no longer located below the Pile gate, but a 10 minute walk outside of the old town.

This tour is very enjoyable in a lovely area at the far reaches of Croatia. This tour does however attract sporty people so make sure you have some level of fitness before going as I was quite embarassed at the back the entire way and missed a lot of the talking about things. But its well run.
