Overview

Get picked up at your hotel in Dubrovnik and then make the hour-long drive to the Pelješac peninsula, the second largest peninsula in Croatia and a land mass crammed with history, culture and plenty of wine and food. Stop in the bay-side town of Ston, famous for its oysters, to see an old salt factory and to gawk at the town's miles of medieval walls that once formed the border of the Republic of Ragusa (i.e. Dubrovnik). Visit some family-run wineries. Stroll along the sea. This private tour of Pelješac is flexible and can be tailored to your interests.
  • Private day trip to Peljesac Peninsula from Dubrovnik
  • Visit the fishing town of Ston to see the Great Wall of Croatia
  • Head inside Ston’s old salt factory to learn about the pure salt harvested in the area
  • Travel along scenic coastal roads and stop at family-run wineries to sample Peljesac wine
  • Learn about the region’s incredible fresh seafood and sample mussels or oysters, if you wish
  • Enjoy personalized attention from a private guide
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 and perhaps chat about some of the sights you want to see so that your trip can be tailored to your own interests. 
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 and perhaps also at a coastal fish farm to taste some freshly caught seafood. 
After further exploring the area, head back to Dubrovnik where the tour will conclude by dropping you off at your hotel.

Drazen was our private guide. After a few misunderstandings where we were meeting him, the office finally got us in touch with Drazen and we had a glorious day. A comfortable ride in a Mercedes through the beautiful countryside to wine country. Visited 3 vineyards, one being Grgich Hills. While the wine there was no where near as delicious as the one from Napa, the scenery and views in Napa were no near as beautiful as this small unpretentious vineyard. Filling the vineyards, we went to Ston, known for their shellfish. Devoured oyster after ouster and drank wine, again while looking at a beautiful vista. Drazen had a bunch of great surprises included for us that I won’t spoil for future travelers. I highly recommend the local tours through Viator and would highly Drazen as your guide ahould you find yourself in Dubrovnik, Croatia

My husband and I booked this tour as part of our honeymoon and were really excited to drink wine and eat oysters. The tour provider emailed me the day before to set the pick-up time and location. The tour lists 10am as the start time, however via email I was told we needed to start between 7 am and 8 am to avoid potentially long lines at the border...weird but ok, maybe it is further away than I thought. NO - you do not cross a border and it took approximately 45 minutes - 1 hour to reach Ston. Do you know what there is to do there at 8:30 in the morning? Nothing. Needless to say we did not have oysters in Ston. Our driver questioned why we started so early and was shocked to hear it was the agency. We wandered the town of Ston until it was an acceptable time and the wineries opened! to visit the wineries. The wineries were great and the wine very good. Our driver was very nice and personable. He took us to a small eatery for oysters and mussels which was a definite highlight. They were so fresh! Overall the trip was good but the early start threw the entire day off and resulted in us feeling this tour is definitely not worth the cost.

Excellent tour and highly recommend. There were three wineries, but the best was a family owned one named Milos. Also, the visit to Ston was interesting as was our lunch at this location.

Great day, lovely to see a bit more of this beautiful country. Only 4 stars as tour guide not quite as informative as perhaps she could have been. But definitely recommend going private.

Our tour guide Ana and driver were fantastic. They provided us with interesting factoids as we drove from one vineyard to another. Recommended a fabulous place of lunch...the BEST oysters I have ever had, bar none.

Wonderful way to spend a day.

My wife, Evelyn, arranged this tour for my birthday, which happened to be a day when our Croatia tour had a free day. Our driver, Vlado, was experienced, capable, fluent in English and a delightful guy. It was a beautiful day and beautiful scenery. We bought a few bottles of wine which we put to good use hosting a group party for the other 12 adult members of our tour group. The wine was delicious, but our lunch was even better. We also enjoyed slurping oysters fresh from the sea at a little place Vlado took us to in mid-morning.
