Day Tours to Korčula Island – the Home of Marco Polo

Day Tours to Korčula Island – the Home of Marco Polo
Staying in a small, but beautiful town of Cavtat situated right next crystal clear sea can relax and heal all your senses brining you peace that has been taken from you being stuck in your own little stressing routine. While relaxing, why not explore a little and learn about the place you are staying?

Relatively near Cavtat there lays rather interesting place to visit – we are talking about the island of Korčula, the second most populous Adriatic island, right after Krk and the sixth largest one. It is situated in the central Dalmatian archipelago, separated from the Pelješac peninsula by a narrow strait. Korčula is covered with Mediterranean flora, including extensive pine forests by which it got its name from the Greeks – Melaina Korkyra or “Black Corfu”. During history, the island was populated by Illyrians (from whom we have remains of buildings and fortresses – gradine), Greeks (from whom we find artefacts and marble tombstones), Romans (remains of old villas), Byzantines, Venetians and Austrians creating, thus, a marvellous and intriguing historical mixture on such a fairly small surface.

On the island there is the town bearing the same name. This historic fortified town on the east coast of the island includes many historic sites such as the birth house of Marco Polo, Cathedral of St Mark (built from 1301 to 1806), the Franciscan monastery, the civic council chambers, the palace of the former Venetian governors, grand 15th- and 16th- century palaces of the local nobles as well as the massive city fortifications.

On your way to the island you should also stop by Ston, only an hour away from Cavtat. Ston is famous for its old salt flats and the second longest city walls in the world (after the Chinese walls). On your way from Ston to port in Orebić (from where you will go on a 15 minutes ferry ride to Korčula) you will undoubtedly enjoy the scenery of the famous vineyards of Pelješac peninsula, beautiful countryside and old settlements.

If you are willing to hear a story of this marvellous island, take a day of your time to taste some good wine enjoying the sounds of klape singing and feel like a real relaxed Dalmatian.

I booked this trip from the UK before our holiday. I had never used this company and they were one of the least advertised so I was a little apprehensive. Worry over ! As this trip was amazing! We were collected at the time stated by a very polite and knowledgeable driver Drajan and because only a small group were going on the trip we were picked up in a eight seater Mercedes van which was air-conditioned and very very comfortable.We were the first pick up so along the route we had to pick up the other six passengers then once everyone was in the car our little tour began with Drajan giving us lots of information along the way.First stop was for an hour at ston walls which gave you enough time to climb part of the wall and grab a coffee.We then drove down the peninsular where we had to get on the ferry across to Korcula Island. This island is a must visit with a very beautiful old town and lovely bays with crystal blue water plenty of places to eat and drink. We climbed to the top of the belltower in the centre of the old town the views from the top were amazing. The only downside to this trip was that we only had 2 1/2 hours roughly by the time we arrived on the ferry over to Korcula, personally I think 3 to 4 hours minimum would have been better. After leaving Korcula we then went back down the Peninsula to a lovely winery where we had wine tastings and then we could purchase some beautiful wine. All in all we had a fantastic day our driver was fabulous and we were lucky to share the car with some very nice people too.I would highly recommend happy to visit, very good value for money, confirmation was instant and a reminder of trip was emailed the day before.

Firstly I cannot thank Happt to Visit enough, from my first contact with them they have provided outstanding customer service. I made a mistake on the date of our tour and their patience and service was fantastic in helping sort things out. Now for the tour, 7 of us went some elderly, the bus was very comfortable, you are on the bus for quite a while so that is important. We stopped for about 30 minutes in Ston, very impressive walls and time for a coffee. Back on the bus, fantastic scenery as you drive through the wineries. The short boat trip was excellent as was our guide Danielle on the bus,.... Korcula is absolutely beautiful we had an English speaking guide who was with us about 40 minutes and then we were left for a couple of hours, we ate in a lovey restaurant on the front, bought wonderful Jewelry and wandered round the beautiful little streets. Winery on the way back ws very short but informative the wines were pleasant and the short stop added to the overall day. Overall a long day but definitely worth it as just beautiful and opportunity to see more of this wonderful country.

We booked the evening befote online and had a couple of queries which we were given responses to that evening. The driver turned up promptly at a hotel near us. He was smart and courteous and the mini bus was clean and new. He drove well and carefully although the roads were sometimes high and bendy.We picked up two other couples from hotels in Dubrovnik who turned out to be charming and interesting. We stopped off for photos along the way and for coffee and a brief stop in the fascinating village of Ston. A little longer spent here would have been even better. An hour later having driven along the peninsula and seen stunning views on either side, we joined and crossed with the ferry to Korcula. Our female guide there told us briefly and in uncertain English about Marco Polo and where to go. We wandered up and down the old town, had lunch at LD Terrace, one of the restaurants on the edge of the old town, overlooking the peninsula. We then descended the steps below where I swam off the rocks in the crystal blue water. We set off back mid afternoon and stopped to taste and buy wine at the Matusko Winery. The wine was better than expected and the winery was quite extensive and photogenic. We were delivered back to our accommodation at half six, feeling we had accrued some great photos and made some wonderful memories. Thank you Kris and everyone at the team.

From our initial enquiry, promptly followed up by Martina we were very satified. the tour was proffesional,relaxed and the guide shared her knowledge with us. She pointed different facts all along the way to Ston, Korcula and a lovely stop at a winecellar with superb wines. We can definitely recommend this tour to anyone staying in Dubrovnik.
