My husband and I arranged the walking and wine tour along with an apartment for our short 1 night stay in Korcula. We arrived pretty early on our day so there was some confusion arriving to the apartment with the owner, but everything worked out fine with the help of our Croatian driver interpreting things for us. Our tour was... More

What a fantastic day! Full of all of the good things in life- amazing wine, with a great bike ride through beautiful scenery. John was a very knowledgable host who taught us lots about grapes and the Croatian way of life.

We had an excellent time with John cycling to the vineyards and wine tasting! We had booked the tour online and both John & Rachel were very prompt and clear in their communication.

Rachel organized a horseback ride for my sister and me in Peljesac, the peninsula just across from Korcula. We took the short ferry ride and were met by Toni, then driven into the interior where he kept his horses. The horses were well groomed and well trained. Riding is English saddle, which was new for me, and quite challenging. I'm... More

Had a great few hours with our guide John on the cycling and wine tasting trip. He showed us around the island. He is very easy to get along with, discussed everything from the local insects to Arsenal football club and everything in between. John is very knowledgeable about his local wines. Picked up a lovely bottle of rose in... More

AAhh Roundy, What a great tour that was! So good to have a group that got along so incredibly well - made my job (which is very tough haha) so much easier. Incidently I have since changed the structure of our cycling tours so that the bikes and group get picked up from the wineries. Not that it was a... More

This was by far our favorite part of our trip to Croatia! We met up with our group, there were 8 of us (I think a perfect number for this trip) and our guide, John- who was awesome!

We went on a walking wine tour with Rachael. The walking portion was scenic, but not too long, with Rachael providing some insights into Korcula along the way. Both wine tasting stops, the winery Grk and a local waterfront restaurant for a tasting and dinner, were excellent. Rachael was an excellent guide and made the entire tour fun. We highly... More

Our group of four enjoyed a full day (6+ hours) of biking and wine-tasting with John. He led us along quiet roads (just a couple short segments on busier roads) from Korcula to the Lumbarda region of the island where we stopped at two vineyards, the second of which included a light lunch. A van then picked up our bikes... More
