We really liked our stop in Ston. Hana did a great job translating everything into 2 languages. We enjoyed the tour of the peninsula, the boat ride to Korcula and having 3 hours to explore Korcula Town. Our only complaint was we had asked for an English tour and we were added into a mainly Spanish tour so we had to wait and be patient as everything was explained in 2 languages! On the bus, this was no problem. But for the walking tour of Korcula my husband was getting bored and restless as everything took twice as long.
Start your journey to the island of Korčula exploring a small town called Ston, one of the best fortified towns in Europe, town famous for its production of mussels and oysters. After a pleasant journey the peninsula Pelješac will surprise you with its vineyards, breathtaking views on the small bays and islands. Discover narrow streets, the unique St. Mark's Cathedral built in Venetian style, numerous well-preserved palaces and the birthplace of famous traveler Marco Polo. Finish your journey visiting a winery and tasting local wines and brandies.

Marco Polo has a vast historical heritage traveling more than 15'000 miles and inspiring generations pioneers to discover unknown lands. Other explorers before him had changed the geography of the world – Marco Polo changed its history. Interestingly, many sources suggest that Korčula is the town, where he was born around 1254!

Depart Dubrovnik on this full-day sightseeing tour of the island of Korčula and Ston, and discover one of the most prominent islands of the Adriatic and the second longest city wall in the world. En route, take in the panoramic scenery of the vineyards of the Pelješac peninsula, as well as some beautiful old country settlements. Stop at Ston to see the old salt flats.

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.
We liked the tour alot! The serenity, the sense of duty, the competence and the specialist knowledge of Boris were 1A. There was a lot of laughter and, in addition to the many impressions, we also made new friends! Great thing for open people who want to experience something new. Have fun :) Thank you Boris!
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.
Very nice experience. We had a good time with our guide.
A well organized trip, beautiful landscapes, good wine
