“Best Tour Company In Korcula”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

I wrote a review of this company (and John and Rachel) on their website after I used them in August 2012, but never thought to write a TripAdvisor review until right now!

My husband and I were married in Dubrovnik, and then traveled with about 40 of our family and friends to Korcula afterwards. John and Rachel planned transport from Mljet to Korcula, and then planned a fabulous day trip with visits to wineries and lunch at an amazing restaurant for all of us. I got compliments all day long from my guests about how much fun the wine tastings and lunch were - I had to tell everyone that I hadn't planned it, it was all John and Rachel!

I would recommend these guys to anyone - they were really really well organized and really put thought into where they took us. A super job that made my group honeymoon really memorable and wonderful. Give them a call!

“Lumbarda wine tour”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Do not miss this experience! A great way to see the topography of Korcula and understand more of this important industry and the rural Agro-culture. In addition you get to wander through some beautiful countryside, sample great and rare wines, and eat some truly authentic local food. John and Rachel are keen and attentive hosts! and Rachel has a growing knowledge of all the flora and fauna you are likely to see on the way between vineyards .

“Walking and wine excursion”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Wow, what a day! A group of 7 of us started our afternoon by talking a lovely stroll down narrow stone roads through olive groves and vineyards. Around every corner was another glorious view of Lombarda's bays. We then were treated to a wine tasting of exquisite wines at at an agrotourism winery and had delicious appetizers made and grown on site. We then walked to a second winery and tasted again followed by a delicious dinner. All along the trip John and Rachael answered questions about the area. They both were extremely knowledgeable and very helpful in making suggestions for the rest of our stay in Korcula. The end of the evening came with cocktails at a beach bar with a lot of laughs. This young couple did a wonderful job in keeping things running smoothly and made everyone feel comfortable and joined in the fun with us. Thank you John and Rachael for this special adventure.

Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so pleased you had such a fun time and it was a real delight to meet you. The "improptu" music at the cocktail bar and during the taxi ride back to town was a real hit - thanks to the DJ!!
