Very nice excursion, they pick you up and deopnyou near your accomodations. Our guide Carmen was really nice, very fluent in english, french and of course croatian. Magnificient views of the countryside of croatia and some of the nicest vineyards of the konavle region. Would recommend to anyone who likes good wines. Just a tip bring a lot of cash if you wish to purchase some stuff. Most of the wines/olive oil are not to expensive, but the best product is the Prošek from the last vineyard that we visited, it cost 600kn and we were a bit disappointed that we didn’t bring enough kunas to bring back a bottle of this delicious product.

George was the best guide ever. Easy to understand, very Accommodating we felt like he had our best interest at heart. And we felt very safe.

Beautiful picture locations near a small river/creek. Excellent wine tasting experience at a small winery.
