Ston and Korcula Island Day Trip from Dubrovnik with Wine Tasting
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.

We chose this day trip from Dubrovnik over Montenegro or Bosnia so we wouldn’t have to deal with a border crossing, however at this time of year don’t think that would have been much of a problem. There is a lot of time driving with one hour in Ston and about three hours in Korcula. We were picked up at 07:20 and back at 17:30. The roads are very winding so could be a problem for some. The island of Korcula is quiet and lovely and we were fortunate to have a beautiful sunny day. Our driver gave lots of information on the drive but you are on your own outside. I meant to take my guidebook pages which would have been helpful. Wine tasting on the drive back was very nice.
Ston is amazing but very small so not as lot to do but well worth visiting for an hour or so. But Korcula is brilliant and we wish we had had more time to explore as it felt like by the time you had lunch, you were having to head back to the ferry.
Enjoyable day outside of Dubrovnik. Ston was interesting but only 45 minutes so not much time to get far across the walls and see the town and it would be great to extend the time spent here a little. 3 hours in Korcula was sufficient with opportunity to take a nice lunch and enjoy the sea views. Wine tasting was brief but the folks there are well organised and you get 6 wines to taste before a walk around and departure. It's worth stating that this is not a guided tour although our driver was very friendly and provided observations and tips on what to visit at the locations.
This was a lovely tour filled with history and culture. There was free time to explore Ston and Korcula. Our guide gave us excellent suggestions of activities, shops, and restaurants to try. The winery is lovely with all local wines unique to the area. This tour was a great way to introduce yourself to Ston and Korcula, and we found many reasons to come back and explore more!
This tour was amazing!
