Great trip all the way around. Had an early pickup at our hotel (Sheraton Dubrovnik). Let on time in a very comfortable Mini bus with 24 seats. Our driver was an expect getting us to each location ahead of schedule. And, our guide, Hannah, was exceptional---well organized, very knowledgeable, interesting and quite proficient in English. the cruise to Korcula, old town orientation walk and wine tasting were highlights. we definitely recommend this excursion ..well worth the price!

Very enjoyable trip! We were a group of 7 people in a comfortable minivan and the trip lasted approximately 10.5 Hours - enough to make a short stop at Ston, and 3 hours at Korcula. Its a very beautiful island with historic old town and lovely coast (although not very appropriate for swimming for the lack of proper beaches). Our guide was excellent - polite, informative and made sure that we are comfortable. A great value for money this trip.

We have been with them all day! From 7 in the morning to 18, but they pass quickly. Very interesting if you want to know several places without being worried about schedules and transport since Mario has taken us and indicated ferry times to visit Korcula and return, in addition to telling us many curiosities about the area and Croatian society and history. Highly recommended!

Great experience. The island of Korcula is beautiful. We made the first stop in Ston and we had time to take a walk and have coffee, then they left us 3 hours free in Korcula, where we could enjoy their coves and food. Finally, we stop at a winery to do a wonderful tasting of regional wines and spirits. Highly recommended.

Andrew was really nice and friendly to us. He was able to put us at ease from the start. This experience is really cool. I recommend for people wishing to visit Korcula.
