I enjoyed this tour. I met a few Swedish Diplomates at the table. We enjoyed wine, smoked ham, fresh veggies and olive oil. I don't eat oysters, so my only criticism is that they should have an option for non oyster eaters. Half our table didn't care for mussels/oysters.
Our day in Dalmatia was brilliant. We caused a problem over pick up but they kindly waited for us. The places they took us were lovely and everywhere we went the locals wanted to feed us. We have used Viator several times before and would have no hesitation in using them in the future.
Beautiful day trip in the Dubrovnik region. Started the trip at Gruž harbour where we met our guide. The best part of this trip was in Orašac - visited a farm for olive oil production yum!!!, smoked ham, cheese and vino. Family run, it was like they welcomed us into their home. Next stop was the impressive Great Wall Of Ston stop for food drinks, check out the salt mines or hike along the wall. Ended in Mali Ston. I was so excited about Mali Ston and found this portion of the trip disappointing. The restaurant they took us to, Bota Šare, rushed us in and out for the next group and the food seafood platter was a small serving and sadly just okay, it was all abrupt felt like they wanted us in and out. Mali Ston itself looked charming and I'd love to go back on my own. Overall this region was beautiful with the oyster capital of Croatia / mussel farms, purest salt in the Mediterranean and second largest city walls. Euro Adria Tours.
This trip was a nice break for us - we got to check out the towns, try yummy home-made Mediterranean food and wine, and meet nice fellow travelers. Only problem is that you sit in the bus for a little too long. Also the two guides, though really nice, didn't really connect with the guests - so it wasn't all that memorable. Would recommend if you have a lot of days and don't feel like driving into the countryside yourself!
A great day out! The guide was very informative and knowledgeable, the lunch was delicious, yes the best smoked ham we had in Croatia as was the red wine that went with it. Ston is a quiet, picturesque town and if you are a seafood fan, you'll love the mussels, oysters and calamari. Timing was perfect, not too long or short and we took in some great views. Good value for money!
Great day out, a chance to see some authentic Croatia. Whatever you do, don't have breakfast - there is plenty of very good, locally-produced food on offer throughout the day. Absolutely do it - and be prepared to drink wine at 9am.
The tour was okay but nothing much to see in this trip. The stop at the olive oil production got to be boring but the food that they served was quite good.
Our tour leader was very good and we really enjoyed the visit to the olive grove. The trip to Ston and the seafood meal was a waste of time as far as we were concerned. The food was served without any comments from locals as to its origins etc and the local wine was terrible and from my observations was not enjoyed by other members of the party either.This part of the tour would be rated 0 by Diane and myself. Sorry if these comments seem harsh but we would not recommend this tour to our friends and family while the Ston section remains within the days activities. It is a pity as the visit to the olive grove was so enjoyable.
