Get picked up at your hotel in Dubrovnik and then make the hour-long drive to the Pelješac peninsula, the second largest peninsula in Croatia and a land mass crammed with history, culture and plenty of wine and food. Stop in the bay-side town of Ston, famous for its oysters, to see an old salt factory and to gawk at the town's miles of medieval walls that once formed the border of the Republic of Ragusa (i.e. Dubrovnik). Visit some family-run wineries. Stroll along the sea. This private tour of Pelješac is flexible and can be tailored to your interests.

Departure Time

8:00 AM
After getting picked up at your hotel in Dubrovnik, begin the hour-long journey to the Pelješac peninsula, passing over the contemporary Franjo Tudman Bridge and then cruising past ancient fishing villages along the beautiful Dalmatian Coast. On the way, learn about the history and culture of the area from your knowledgeable guide and perhaps chat about some of the sights you want to see so that your trip can be tailored to your own interests. 

The first top is the town of Ston and its diminutive sibling, Mali Ston (Little Ston), home to some of the longest medieval walls in Europe at 4.3 miles (7 kilometers) and also some of the most delicious oysters this side of the Atlantic. Visit and old salt factory, which produced enough valuable salt that it made the area wealthy and well known in southern Europe. 

Take a break for lunch in town (at own expense) and perhaps sample some of the famous oysters – even Roman emperors would have them shipped to Rome – and then continue the journey down the Pelješac peninsula, cruising along the coast. This area is known for its wine production, so stop at three different family-run wineries to sample their goods and perhaps also at a coastal fish farm to taste some freshly caught seafood. 

After further exploring the area, head back to Dubrovnik where the tour will conclude by dropping you off at your hotel.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Dubrovnik
Start your day with a pickup from your centrally located Dubrovnik hotel, and then travel with your private guide to the small town of Ston on the Peljesac Peninsula. As you travel, chat with your guide about the scenic south Dalmatia region and the sights that you particularly want to see. Your itinerary is flexible so if there’s something you want to see more of, simply let your guide know.
Stop At:  
Ston
After roughly an hour on the road, arrive in Ston and stretch your legs on a walking tour of the pretty coastal town. Pose for pictures by the so-called Great Wall of Croatia – Ston’s major claim to fame – and hear how it is said to be one of the world’s largest fortified city walls. The Peljesac area is rich in natural resources, with salt and wine lauded as the peninsula’s biggest exports, so visit the town’s old salt factory and hear tales about the pure salt harvest. Enjoy a break for lunch in town (own expense) and then return to your minivan to continue your tour.
Duration: 45 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Peljesac Peninsula
Travel along the undulating coastline of Peljesac Peninsula and, in between gazing at the turquoise Adriatic Sea, stop at three family-run wineries to sample their wares. Plavic mali is the region’s principle grape and, while your wine samples vary on each occasion, chances are that you will taste several made from the ubiquitous grape. Snacks such as artisan cheese and bread are often served alongside the wine. If you want to learn more about southern Dalmatia’s cuisine, then perhaps swap one of your winery visits with a seafood-tasting session at a coastal fish farm. Sample fresh local oysters or mussels while learning about the region’s renowned fishing heritage. After exploring the region and sampling its fine produce, return to your minivan and travel back to Dubrovnik. Your tour finishes with a drop-off at your Dubrovnik hotel.

We had the pleasure of meeting Drazen when we arrived at the airport. We enjoyed our drive into Dubrovnik and were able to request him later in the week for the tour to Ston and the wine tasting. We had a rainy start but he made the experience fun nonetheless. He even suprised me with a birthday dessert at the restaurant at which we had lunch. We had a different driver (also awesome) for our transfer back to the airport. In the early hour of our departure, my husband forgot to return the hotel key. He walked outside of the airport to phone the hotel and who did he run into? Drazen himself, he had just dropped someone else to the airport. He told him what happened and Drazen gladly said he would help. He took the key and said he would return it to the hotel later in the day. He wouldn't take a top for his trouble either. A very friendly guy who went above and beyond at every turn. We can't say enough good things about Drazen. The tour was also fantastic and the wineries were lovely. We wished we could have seen more of Ston but with the rain it just wasn't possible.

About the tour and the guide

, Sep 2019
Tour guide was professional and was able to speak fluent English, his plans for those 3 wineries, oyster and salt farms with a walk to the little city walls were good. His pick of restaurant for lunch was also a highlight! The tour will be perfect if we could visit one of the vineyards there!

Customized private tour

Our private Croatian tour guide Robert provided us with very attentive service in a very comfortable SUV. We picked the hotel pickup time in Lapad and customized our drop-off in Orebic. First, we visited the walled town of Ston for a 1.5 hour visit. Next were wine tastings at the excellent Milos winery and then unique Edivo Vina. Lunch was outstanding at seaside Vitaceae restaurant in Trstenik. One final wine tasting was at Matusko where tour buses caught up to us.

My wife and I had an absolutely delightful time with Drezen on our day to Ston and the Peljesac Peninsula! He was so pleasant and shared so much about the culture of Croatia during our journey. We first got picked up in Dubrovnik, and then were driven to Ston where we had an hour to explore the city and we ended up buying a ticket to walk on the walls there (definitely recommend). Then we drove a bit further to the 3 wineries that Drezen had selected. All awesome and unique in their own way. We purchased a lot of wine to bring home, and even had some shipped back to our house in the States. After the 3 wineries, he took us to Mali Ston where we enjoyed a really nice lunch on the water with some super fresh fish, oysters, and other shellfish. My wife and I both agree it was our favorite day during our trip. Would recommend to anyone.

Drazen was our private guide. After a few misunderstandings where we were meeting him, the office finally got us in touch with Drazen and we had a glorious day. A comfortable ride in a Mercedes through the beautiful countryside to wine country. Visited 3 vineyards, one being Grgich Hills. While the wine there was no where near as delicious as the one from Napa, the scenery and views in Napa were no near as beautiful as this small unpretentious vineyard. Filling the vineyards, we went to Ston, known for their shellfish. Devoured oyster after ouster and drank wine, again while looking at a beautiful vista. Drazen had a bunch of great surprises included for us that I won’t spoil for future travelers. I highly recommend the local tours through Viator and would highly Drazen as your guide ahould you find yourself in Dubrovnik, Croatia

My husband and I booked this tour as part of our honeymoon and were really excited to drink wine and eat oysters. The tour provider emailed me the day before to set the pick-up time and location. The tour lists 10am as the start time, however via email I was told we needed to start between 7 am and 8 am to avoid potentially long lines at the border...weird but ok, maybe it is further away than I thought. NO - you do not cross a border and it took approximately 45 minutes - 1 hour to reach Ston. Do you know what there is to do there at 8:30 in the morning? Nothing. Needless to say we did not have oysters in Ston. Our driver questioned why we started so early and was shocked to hear it was the agency. We wandered the town of Ston until it was an acceptable time and the wineries opened! to visit the wineries. The wineries were great and the wine very good. Our driver was very nice and personable. He took us to a small eatery for oysters and mussels which was a definite highlight. They were so fresh! Overall the trip was good but the early start threw the entire day off and resulted in us feeling this tour is definitely not worth the cost.
