What people are saying about Korčula Island

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 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!

Fantastic experience. Boris is an excellent tour guide (and kayak coach). The tour is perfectly timed for catching the sunset with visits to three islands. Finished off perfectly with a delicious picnic of Canapés and local wine from Boris himself. Definitely recommend!

We had a very good time with Boris. He’s very professional and kayak are very good ones. It was fun and very interesting about Croatia. I highly recommend this activity
