    It was a nice way to spend a day. The guide Roza was very nice. Korčula was very beautiful. The wine and liqueur tasting was fun. But I have a couple of criticisms. It was not stated that the tour would be both in English and Spanish and it got a bit tiring to listen to the guide in both languages. Then in the itinerary it said it was a guided tour of Korčula, but the guide just told us a few words in the bus and then showed us the meeting point in Korčula and that was it. Lastly, I think the stop in Ston is not needed because there is not enough time to really do any activities there in the short time. I think it would be better to lenghten the stay in Korčula. In the end it was a pleasant trip, but I expected a little bit more

    Our group of 6 set off in a comfortable minibus, having been picked up from our hotel by our pleasant, patient and knowledgeable guide and driver, Ivan. An amazing, full day was in store for us! Through stunning scenery we were driven to the beautiful, old, little town of Ston where we had free time to wander the narrow streets and alleyways, view the amazing city walls and sit in the sun at one of the pavement cafés. Continuing on our wonderfully scenic, coastal journey along the Peljesac peninsula, with Ivan giving us lots of interesting information and answering our many questions en route, we arrived at Orebic where a small craft awaited to carry us on the short boat ride across the channel to the picturesque town and island of Korcula. We were met there by a local guide who led us on an informative and entertaining city tour within the walls of the town she obviously loved! There was then free time to further explore and to choose a restaurant for a leisurely lunch break. Having then returned by boat to Orebic, we rejoined Ivan and our minibus and journeyed back towards Dubrovnik with a pleasant stop at one of the many local wineries for a tour of the cellars and a complimentary wine tasting. I highly recommend this tour, the company Adriatic Explore, and our excellent guide Ivan. On this holiday we only managed to fit in one of the many tours that Adriatic Explore offer, but they'll be our first choice to book with if/when hopefully we return to this beautiful area!

    I took a private boat tour with this company, and they did a fabulous job. They were very nice, were very knowledgeable about the islands, the bays & inlets, and most importantly, knew the secret places to go which were not crowded. I went swimming and snorkeling in beautiful places, and it was peaceful, tranquil and lovely. The crew on the ship had quality refreshments and beverages, and we stopped at some islands along the way which were cool and not just touristy. I strongly recommend you use this company if you want to go for a great boat experience in the Adriatic Sea along the Croatian coast. Their boats are clearly well-maintained, they let me know immediately about all the safety measures upon getting on the boat, and everything was handled professionally. I give this company 10 stars

    The forecast was not good but we decided to go anyway. When Jure met us at our hotel he told us we would have a nice time and we did. OK, we did get a bit wet when we visited the city of Ston but the scenery en route to Korcula Island is lovely. The weather soon cleared and we had an enjoyable 3 hours on the island. The visit to the Winery was excellent too. Overall it was a great trip. Jure and the guide are very pleasant and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with others in our group.

    If you are staying in Dubrovnik and love the city, then you will also love to experience the scenery en route to the beautiful island of Korcula, and spend time in the old town of Korcula itself. The tour also includes a stop for a wine tasting, which is good fun too. Our guides were really knowledgeable and fun, and our driver, Jure, helped to develop a friendly atmosphere in our small group (of 8) throughout the tour.

    Although the tour description says a "small group tour", we had more than 50 people on the big tour bus (all seats were taken), which does not qualify as a small group. The day was very long and my suggestion would be to eliminate the stop at the winery. Their wine (both whites and reds) was undrinkable, tasted like vinegar. Many people in our group were dumping it after one sip. If I knew the tour size would be so big, we would have taken a trip to Korcula on our own. It's a beautiful island with lovely beaches around it.

    It was not really a wine tour since it included only one winery stop at the end so it should be named appropriately to avoid the confusion. Overall, very relaxing tour with a lot of free time given. It was a great way to escape a crazy crowd in overheated Dubrovnik and see what a countryside looks like.

    An hour at Ston early in the morning, salt mines, city walls, coffee break. Short, easy ferry to Corcula and brief city tour introduction before 2 1/2 hours of free time there to eat, swim or explore. Great little place to explore, you can’t get lost. Amazing blue water all around. Davor was an excellent tour guide, the perfect balance between explaining and leaving us to our own devices. Perfect amount and quality of information, excellent English - and Spanish. Everything went exactly as planned. Wine tour in cellar was brief but fun, we tasted 5 wines and learned about the special regional traditions. We were able to explore the cellar which had many interesting old and new items. Several hours total in bus on many windy roads, with lovely views, air conditioning should have been higher. Back to Dubrovnik by 5:30, easy drop-off appreciated as they divided bus up into groups and had bans take us more directly back instead of to each hotel. Very relaxing and fun day overall. Corcula is for good reason recommended, a highlight of our trip for sure!

    Soy una viajera que siempre va por libre. No me gustan los viajes organizados pero al no tener coche durante mis 3 dias en Dubrovnik escogí Adriatic Explore para visitar Korčula y Ston en un dia Escogí la agencia por los comentarios de algunos viajeros en blogs. Acerté!!!!! ... por libre solo me hubiera dado tiempo a visitar o Korčula o Ston pero EN ABSOLUTO las dos cosas a la vez. Así que mi experiencia con ADRIATIC EXPLORE fue MUY satisfactoria y creo MUY bien aprovechada! (SOLO 55€) El guia además hablaba español super correcto y yo sé inglés pero mi amigo nada ... así que a él le fue de maravilla!!!! Merece la pena sobretodo SI NO SE PRETENDE ALQUILAR COCHE!!!! Recomiendo ADRIATIC EXPLORE para excursiones de un dia! Además Korčula es del todo imprescindible y preciosa!

    Great tour Ivan our driver got us there and back safely and a head of time. ANTE OR large croatian guide was great his passion for Croatia and its history was obvious and his own stories of his childhood growing up in the county were both touching and informative he has a good grasp of English and a good sense of humour. He and Ivan made us feel welcome and gave us plenty information it was good in Ston and Kocula yes more time would have been great but that's because there great places to visit. The wine visit part of the tour was very good delivered well and great wine. Thank you so much Ante great tour and great to have shared the journey with you.
