Tour description provided by Viator

Immerse yourself in the history and beauty of Croatia on a day trip to Ston and Korcula Island from Dubrovnik. First visit the 14th-century town of Ston, where you’ll enjoy a guided walking tour and have free time to explore on your own. You’ll then board a boat in Orebić for a ride to beautiful Korcula Island, where you’ll have another guided walking tour and visit St Marco Cathedral and the supposed birthplace of Marco Polo. A wine tasting (included) at a Croatian winery is the perfect end to this small-group tour, which provides a more personal experience with your guide.

Journey to some of the most beautiful places in Croatia on a day trip from Dubrovnik. Enjoy pickup at your hotel, and then take in views of the city as you make your way out of it. Stop on the Dubrovnik bridge for a panoramic photo opportunity of Dubrovnik before continuing along Adriatic coast to the town of Ston.

When you arrive in Ston, learn interesting facts about the 14th-century town while enjoying a sightseeing tour from your minivan, after which you’ll have free time to explore more on your own. Wander around Ston's medieval walls that circle the whole town, and have a refreshment or sample the local delicacy -- oysters -- at a local bar (own expense).

Continue towards Orebić, taking in the beautiful panoramic scenery of the vineyards and old settlements of the Peljesac Peninsula as your guide tells you about the peninsula’s wineries and mussel-breeding.

In Orebić, board a boat and admire the striking blue color of the Adriatic as you make your way to Korcula Island. Wander around the streets of Korcula with your guide and see how nature, history and local culture merge together. Next, visit Marco Polo's supposed birthplace, St Marco Cathedral and other historical landmarks. Have free time to explore more on your own and have lunch at a local restaurant (own expense); then meet your guide and return to Orebić by boat.

Back on your comfortable minivan, admire the Croatian countryside on the drive to Potomje, where you will visit one of Croatia’s most famous wineries. After a guided tour of the winery, enjoy a wine tasting, as well as samples of brandy and liqueur , accompanied by a sommelier.

Finally, relax on your vehicle and admire more views of the landscape and Adriatic Coast on the drive back to Dubrovnik.
