This trip was actually in 3 parts. The first was a stop at the town of Ston, where there are medieval fortifications in the form of small castle and an extensive wall system. The wall go up an over a nearby hill and can be walked. Then there was a boat trip to the Island and town of Korcula. The town is very small but very pleasant. It has several very old churches and town walls and towers. It is also reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. Lastly there was a stop at a local winery for a tasting.

The trip to the island was very good and we stopped at another town with walls (Ston) on the way to the island. The wine tasting was fine, but rather short and at the end of the trop.

Nice day trip with beautiful scenery. Would like to return back to Korcula and stay there for a few days. Nice island for bike ride.

We wanted to get to Korcula for a day. This was the perfect solution as opposed to a 14 hour day using the ferry. We got picked up from our hotel at 8, had an informative guide and good bus driver, over 3 hours in Korcula and some wine tasting on the way back. Very relaxing and back in Dubrovnik before 6. Highly recommended if you are short of time.

Comfortable, clean tour bus. The tour bus and the Korcula guides were both extremely knowledgeable of their respective sites. There was ample time between stops and on Korcula for solo exploring. The wine tasting stop was fantastic. Highly recommend the tour. Thank you for a memorable experience. Robert B. USA

We had an extra day in Dubrovnik and wanted to get out and about without renting a car and etc. Viator's Korcula day trip was perfect for us. Reasonably priced and well-regarded, we were picked up at our hotel on-time and driven - via a comfortable bus - through the beautiful Croatian countryside. We stopped at the small but interesting village of Ston for a coffee stop and then proceeded on our way to take the ferry to the island. Our guide was knowledgable and attentave, but gave us plenty of time to wander around on our own and have personal time. The stop at the winery on the way back to Dubrovnik was a nice end to the trip.

This was a great trip from start to finish. We got picked up outside the hotel as agreed on time and were met at the new port by our tour guide. Ivana was great fun and spoke great English and German. We had a lovely drive up the coast in an air conditioned bus which was a god send on such a hot day. We then got the ferry across to Korcula where we had three hours to explore. Ivana did a walking tour but we were unable to go on this due to my friend being on crutches. Ivana and the bus driver made things as easy as possible for her. The Island of Korcula is beautiful and well worth the tripup the coast. On the way back we stopped off at a winery for a couple of samples which was great as it meant we could all have a sleep on the way back to Dubrovnik. I would highly recommend this trip.

Very good trip. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and gave a very informative tour of Korcula old town. The coach was very clean, comfortable and air conditioned. The drive up the coast was spectacular. The visit to the winery gave an interesting insight into Croatian wine production and it tasted good too.

What a lovely day out!! And even with it being a long day it did not feel that way at all. The coach was comfortable and clean. The driver and guide well spoken and friendly. The guide was very knowledgable about the whole area we travelled through and even shared a few quirky stories. She spoke English and French fluently as well as her native laguage. I thought this to be really well done and she made the whole group feel included. The views on the drive was amazing even with the high drops to the cliffs below and the narrow road We stopped in Ston and had enough time to walk around the town and explore a bit before driving onwards. The ferry was clean, comfortable and well kept and manned. The timing of when and where to meet was well communicated and we did not have to wait at all. I did not expect such a good introduction to Korcula and the short walking tour of the old city part but was pleasantly surprised and very pleased. Again our guide knew the area well and shared her information with us in a really nice way. It was very unfortunate that being so early in the season not all the shops and restaurants were open yet. But the few that was had great service and good quality products. I had a lovely pasta lunch with an amazing view. I would love to return again and maybe see more of the whole island especially a bit later in the season when all the shops and restaurants are open. On the return trip we stopped at a small winery and the owner gave us some history about the farm and his family together with the lovely wine we tasted and some local cheese. I thought this really concluded the day well and put everyone in a nice mood to go home and have some dinner when we get back. The small size of the group really made it appealing to me as I do not like big groups so the whole experience was positive and enjoyable. I will happily recommend this tour.

Beautiful weather meant the trip along the coast was spectacular. Korcula a small, but interesting island. The guides were all terrific. They spoke excellent English - and German!

Korcula is a beautiful place and being relatively small, easy to get around in. There was plenty of time for lunch and wandering the town as well as a good guided tour to start. The local guide was excellent with a great repertoire of funny stories and comedy lines. She could have done a stint on stage! An added bonus to the tour was a stop off at Ston (with the spectacular walls!) on the way but sadly not enough time to explore the walls. The vineyard stop on the way back is also interesting. The only downside was that this was a mixed English/German tour and the repetition in 2 languages becomes tedious. Fortunately on Korcula itself the two language groups split up for local guiding.

You cannot miss this trip. From the stop in Ston, to the village of Korcula, everything is amazing. I loved our guide in Korcula. She was funny and witty and gave us some excellent info. I had the best lunch there of my whole trip and I love that it was sitting sea side! Well organized and plenty of on your own time. It was perfect!!

A very enjoyable day. Andrea our guide was lovely as was our guide (also called Andrea) in Korcula, who was very informative and highly amusing. Korcula town is a lovely little spot. I am surprised no mention is made in the tour literature of the stop-off at Ston when just over into the Peljesac peninsla. It is an amazing place with the longest complete fortress walls around a town in Europe going right up the hillside - you get very good views with reflections if you pay a small amount to go into the salt pan area. I would rate this bit of the tour more highly than the wine cellar.

This day trip was first class. Excellent guide both on the coach and on Korcula. Korcula is a beautiful town and island well worth the trip. The wine tasting on the way back was very good as was the stop at Stom. It is a long day of travelling and sightseeing (11 hours in total) but very informative, interesting and good fun.
