Finally, stop at the medieval town of Počitelj, before going back to Dubrovnik.
We were picked up from the hotel. The ride was comfortable and the driver Luka was wonderful. It was like a mini tour along the way during the drive. In Mostar Irfaan, our local guide, explained us about the history of the place and showed us the beautiful city. On our way back we stopped at the Kravice waterfall. Very serene and beautiful. Not many tourists.Overall a very memorable trip and highly recommended to anyone travelling to Croatia.

Finally, enjoy lunch followed by free time that you can use for swimming or just a walk on this beautiful island. The tour returns to Dubrovnik in the afternoon.
Visit several smaller caves on the island of Koločep and the Blue Cave. Go inside and experience how the reflection of the sun rays gives the sea an extraordinary blue color. Your skipper will join you in the sea as he shares interesting stories about the Dubrovnik caves. Next, visit the three Green caves. You’ll notice right away how the hues of turquoise and green beautifully blend as the waves ripple on the surface. These are also excellent spots for swimming and snorkeling. As you sail back towards the Old Town, stop by the Betina Cave and tread on the beautiful pebble beach. Visit the biggest of the Dubrovnik caves, called the Pidgeon’s cave. Secluded, on the outer side of the island, its entrance is surrounded by steep rocks and Mediterranean greenery protruding from the rocks.

It was very informative and organised very well. Our guide Petra was exemplary. She knew how to conduct a crowd and keep the momentum going. While she gave some great anecdotes, she was very funny. The trip doesn't cover the extra fare to the Kravice waterfalls.
