“Walking and Wine Tour”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

My friend and I spent a lovely afternoon with John & Rachael walking through the Lumbarda countryside. They were so warm and friendly! It was clear that they were very knowledge about the people and area because they shared many interesting tidbits throughout the entire tour. The two wineries were wonderful as well. They were owned and operated by local families and produced wines exclusive to Korcula. I couldn't help but take 3 bottles home with me. The extra luggage weight was well worth it!

Beyond the wine tour, Rachael and John were very helpful as we planned our entire Croatia holiday (We also visited Zagreb, Split, Hvar and Dubrovnik). They gave us advice on anything from transportation to accommodations. They're both sincere people who genuinely want to help people enjoy their time in Korcula and beyond.

Thanks so much for the feedback Stephanie. It was lovely to meet you both. Well done for getting the wine back home & not drinking it on the way! It was a pleasure to help you plan your Croatian trip and we hope you had a fantastic vacation...come back and say "hi" over a glass of Grk anytime! All the best, Rachael & John (Korcula Explorer).

“Walking and winery tour”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We spent a very pleasant afternoon with Rachel & John strolling through the countryside of Korcula! It was great to get off the beaten path and explore outside of the historic town. Walking the back roads and finding the wineries that also make their own cheese, and prosciutto is not something we would have done on our own. Rachel & John pointed out wild herbs along the way making the experience even more unique. They are not only great hosts but fun company.

“Walking and Wine Tasting Tour -”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

A special experience wandering through the beautiful Lumbarda countryside with our lovely young local guides - through little hamlets, passed vineyards, well maintained vegetable plots, stone walls, fields of wild flowers, herbs and olive groves. So peaceful to be away from the crowds and tourist shops. A great way to enjoy good wine and locally produced food and to learn more about the area. Would highly recommend the tour.

“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 .
