We had a pleasant drive from Split to Dubrovnik with a quick stop in Ston. Stipe was very courteous and graciously answered our questions about Croatia and the region. He was not only a great driver, but an awesome guide. His car is comfortable and he provided us with bottles of water. At the end of our journey, he unexpectedly gave us a gift bag that included some delicious brandy made by his mother in law! Can’t recommend Stipe’s transfer service enough!

An excursion to do. The journey lasts 3.5 hours but the road is so beautiful that you don't see the time passing! The guide takes the opportunity to give us interesting comments on the places we pass through and on the history of Croatia. Dubrovnik, breathtaking! 1h30 guided tour and 3h30 free time, great! Plenty of time to do what you need to do, the city, the castle and much more... Magnificent day, very good guide, I recommend!

This was the best wine tour I have ever been on. The boat out to the oyster farm and the oyster tasting was a pleasant surprise. Both wineries had delicious wine and the lunch at the second winery was fantastic and so far my favourite meal in Dubrovnik. Everyone we met was so friendly and our guide Oliver was the best. It was truly a great day!

My wife and I spent an excellent day trip with other two couples. Everyone was kind and the atmosphere was relaxed. Oliver is a great guide and nice driver, we chatted a lot about the local cultures, enjoyed delicious traditional food and wine. It’s really a happy day!

Ivan was amazing. The entire trip was nothing but fun. Elle, the tour guide, was also very knowledgeable and sweet. Overall a great experience
