What You Can Expect

Peljesac Peninsula Day Trip from Dubrovnik: Wine Tasting and Ston Village Tour

Discover the peninsula's winemaking heritage on this day trip

After getting picked up at your hotel in Dubrovnik, begin the hour-long journey to the Pelješac peninsula, passing over the contemporary Franjo Tudman Bridge and then cruising past ancient fishing villages along the beautiful Dalmatian Coast. On the way, learn about the history and culture of the area from your knowledgeable guide.


The first top is the town of Ston and its diminutive sibling, Mali Ston (Little Ston), home to some of the longest medieval walls in Europe at 4.3 miles (7 kilometers) and also some of the most delicious oysters this side of the Atlantic. Visit and old salt factory, which produced enough valuable salt that it made the area wealthy and well known in southern Europe.


Take a break for lunch in town (at own expense) and perhaps sample some of the famous oysters – even Roman emperors would have them shipped to Rome – and then continue the journey down the Pelješac peninsula, cruising along the coast. This area is known for its wine production, so stop at three different family-run wineries to sample their goods.


After visiting your final winery, continue on to the tiny village of Trstenik, where you’ll enjoy a scenic stroll. Gain insight into local life and traditions from your guide, and make several stops during the 1-hour route to capture postcard-perfect vacation snaps.


When the time comes, hop back inside your minivan and relax on the journey back to Dubrovnik, where your day trip concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This ended up being a private tour and the biggest highlight of our honeymoon for us! We had an amazing driver and guide, Alex, who gave us not just the history of the Peljesac region but many insights into the lives of Croatians in general. We were impressed by his driving and his knowledge of all the off the beaten path roads that I doubt any tour bus would have been able to fit. The wines were all fantastic and reasonably priced as well. The Plavac Mali is a regional grape, and the varietals that come from it are so different and diverse. Definitely off the beaten path if you're looking for an experience like it.

What a great tour. You get to see the countryside while visiting three wineries. We tasted about 15 wines in total. Our guide was great, very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. There are some other wine tours available for considerably more, we thought this was great value for money.

Its turns out no one else booked this tour on the day we chose to go so it was pretty much a private tour - Lucky us!.
We had a friendly tour guide and driver.
I don't think this tour included the part in the write-up which says After visiting your final winery, continue on to the tiny village of Trstenik, where youll enjoy a scenic stroll. Gain insight into local life and traditions from your guide, and make several stops during the 1-hour route to capture postcard-perfect vacation snaps but we did stupidly leave our camera bag at the first winery and the owner kindly called our guide so on route back we had to call there to collect very kind Perhaps that's why we missed the above.
Not to worry, what we saw of the wineries, vineyards and Ston was just beautiful. A really nice relaxing day trip. I would definitely recommend it!. I'm not even a wine drinker, but my other half is - he slept all the journey back
