Guest Reviews About Korcula Explorer

Alison joined us on a Cycling & Wine Tasting Tour in September 2016

Thanks again for a fantastic day today. We absolutely loved it - the weather, countryside and wine was amazing but Johns info and relaxed manner made the group really bond and so making it all the more enjoyable. We were so impressed by what you have both set out to do here and have achieved. Best of luck with your future dreams, you will definitely make it. You've got what it takes, for definite. We'll definitely recommend you and keep you in mind for future tours and visits here.

 

Megan joined us on a Cycling & Wine Tasting Tour in August 2016

Thank you so much for these tips and for a lovely evening last night. We really enjoyed the wine tasting and will be happy to leave a review. Thanks again!!

 

Sheila joined us on a Cycling & Wine Tasting in August 2016

Yes we had such a great time that day! In fact, it was our favourite day in Croatia. Thank you so much for some amazing memories. Hope all is good with both of you and your little one. We'd love to come back to Korcula someday! Thank you again for an amazing experience.#

 

Alan & Christine joined us on a Walking & Wine Tasting in August 2016

We had a fantastic time on the walking tour. Now that we are home and people ask what the highlight of our trip was, we tell them without hesitation it was Korula and the walking wine tour! We thoroughly enjoyed listening to John tell us about wine in production in the area (we thoroughly enjoyed his wit and sense of humour!! A lot like our own.)  and although it was freaking hot, it was fun. We loved the game two truths and a lie at dinner (morphing in to 2 lies and a truth!) and it was great to get to know the other couples in the group. It was also a nice ending having drinks with John and 2 of the other couples at the Korula Hotel upon conclusion of this fun tour!!

The two of you have a dream job in the midst of a  beautiful location. We wish you all the best and we will strongly encourage our friends to visit Korula and take part in your fantastic tours!

 

Rachel booked the Zrnovo Tour in August 2016

I'd like to thank you again for all your help and responsiveness in the planning - it was a pleasure to work with you. I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about working with you to plan these excursions though - you were so easy to work with! Again, I really appreciate all your help! We really fell in love with Croatia and Korcula in particular, and having these experiences definitely helped bring the place to life.

 

Jake visited Korcula in August 2016

Yes we did thank you, we followed your map to perfection and had some lovely wine at Bire, and a great lunch and bottle at Popic before heading to the beach for some cocktails. We even went back to Bire the next day! Thanks again for all your help, we really appreciated it and it made our honeymoon even more fun :)

 

Natalie booked Accommodation K6-A2, joined us on a Walking & Wine Tasting Tour, booked a Cooking Class & Transfers in July 2016

I'd like to begin by thanking you both for making the arrangements. It was awesome to have somebody waiting for us at the airport who just grabbed our bags and drove us to Korcula. Great apartment! Loved, loved, LOVED the wine tour. And now the cooking class. I'll admit that my husband was dubious at first, but we can honestly say that it was the highlight of our trip. Korcula is a beautiful place. The island is charming and there are many places to visit.

 

Andrea & Michael joined us on a Cycling & Wine Tasting Tour July 2016

Thanks very much for all the information, it's very useful! We are just about to pick up our car for the day and explore the island.

Thank you also very much again for the tour on Saturday, we enjoyed it so much!

 

Daniel booked a Private Evening Sunset Cruise to prpose to his girlfriend in July 2016

Hiro & Shiho booked Accommodation K34-A4 & went Horse-Trekking in July 2016 (3rd time back to Korcula)

We had come back to Japan. Vacation like the dream had ended. We could enjoy very much in your favor. Thank you very much. Jimmy's room was very good, of course. It was very cozy and nice. In particular, HIRO really enjoyed horse riding.

 

James joined us on Walking & Wine Tasting Tour and booked the Zrnovo Tour in July 2016

Thank you so much for a wonderful time yesterday and the day before. We loved getting to see parts of the island that we would not have otherwise. Everything was so relaxing, you do a great job of making the process so easy for your guests.

 

Lacey booked a Mini Island & Wine Taster Tour in May 2016

Thank you guys so much for making our quick visit WELL worth it :)

 

John enjoyed the article we wrote for Total Croatia March 2016

I really enjoyed the Korcula article. I was there in 2004 and going again this summer.  Magical spot, and your article gave me some new inspiration for new exploration there such as to the caves and Blato.

I would just like to express our thanks to you for making our stay on Korcula so pleasant and enjoyable. If we ever have the opportunity to travel to Croatia again we would definitely make use of your service. I will also pass on your details to anyone that I hear of that would be interested in visiting Korcula.

Also, just to mention that Cedo, our host, was most helpful and pleasant."

I was however really impressed and grateful for the time you took to respond to my query and the detail you gave us. I have put a little review on trip advisor just confirming this as a show of my appreciation. I hope that is okay.

efficient and helpful service during our recent stay in Korcula."

 

Priyanka went on the Peljesac Wine Tasting & Bike Trip in October 2014

I will definitely be recommending your company to all my friends and colleagues who consider coming to Korcula."

Kathy stayed at Korcula Apartment K2-A2 in September 2014

"It was wonderful to stay in Kochula at Nicholas's apartment. He was wonderful and very helpful. He picked us up at the ferry and even saw us off. The apartment was very clean and spacious and the views were amazing. We also did the bike tour with Mario which was a once in a lifetime experience which we will treasure always. Mario is a very lovely man and we cannot even begin to explain what an amazing day we had touring the vineyards by bike and to experience a great lunch prepared by his sister. These are memories we will treasure always. Thank you very much for a great trip!!!!"

 

Stuart stayed at Korcula Apartment K33-A1 in August 2014

"Excellent to see you waiting for us when we arrived... Very happy with the quickness of your replies when booking . We tend to also use public transport to travel to and from resorts and on islands. More information on buses, issues surrounding buses and ferries would have helped us. "

 

Jake stayed at Racisce Apartment R2-A2 in August 2014

"The apartments balcony and location were absolutely stunning. Thanks to Korcula Explorer for making our stay possible.

Thanks for your help the other day. We managed to get to Raiše just fine and had a perfect couple of nights there- definitely one of our favourite places on our trip and we totally fell in love with Vaja beach. Thanks for your tips and for sorting out our accommodation, hopefully we'll be back in Korula one day."

Rowena stayed at Korcula Apartment K33-A1 in June 2014

Janis stayed at Apartment K2-A1 in September 2013

Janis said "We did the Wine Tour with Korcula Explorer and it was excellent. We really enjoyed the wine, the snacks and dinner, the drink at the beach at the end, and the company. It was a beautiful area. We also had Korcula Explorer arrange our transfer from Korcula to Dubrovnik, and that went very smoothly as well. Door-to-door service cannot be beat!"

 

Paul & Diane stayed at Apartment K6-A1 in September 2013

They said "It was really easy booking through Korcula Explorer and we loved the Island.”

 

Blanca stayed at Apartment K35-A1 in August 2013

Blanca said "Firstly, we just wanted to reiterate what a fantastic service it is that you provide. The website, quick responses, and your helpful hints were all very well received! Thank you. You will notice in the survey that we rated payment process as ‘good’ rather than ‘excellent’. This is because we found the second step in the process a little bit ad hoc. The first part of the payment process was great. We are people who like to be organised, so would perhaps have preferred a process that was a little bit clearer in terms of the second payment in relation to timing and final amount.

We will definitely spread the word about Korcula Explorer!"

 

Paul stayed at Apartment K5-A1 in August 2013

Paul said "I must also thank you both for your help in booking. Your website and link through Trip advisor was great and the easiest way to book. I have commented in Trip Advisor about both the apartment and Korcula Explorer.

We did like your Pinterest pages and they gave us the motivation to go and see some of what Korcula has offer. I did use both your website, email and Pinterest pages to work out the best places to go and having a car allowed us to visit Vela Luka (lovely town and harbour) Prizba and Pupnatska Luka beaches (we were blown over by these beatiful spots and the clarity of the water, our 3 year old loved swimming in the sea) as well as Lumbarda.

Overall we had a great time and would easily recommend both the island and yourselves to anyone wanting to see some of the true Croatia.

Thanks again for your help and informative sites."

 

Anon comment from August 2013

Wanted to thank you so much for your efforts at getting us resettled -- we really appreciate it!

We really love it here! This view is so stunning. Feel like I could spend the whole time just sitting on this terrace. Very memorable.

 

Email from Maxine & Scott who visited Korcula in August 2013

We had an amazing time in Korcula, which was very much thanks to your brilliant advice.

We found your guide so useful, it was great to have some genuine local knowledge. We used it everyday and tried lots of places that you suggested, which were always good. The Peka at Mirakul was really special, very romantic next to the water and exceptional food (and wine).

Thanks again for helping to make our holiday so lovely.

Sean stayed at Apartment K25-A2 in June/July 2013

Sean said "We most certainly did have an absolutely wonderful trip that we can't stop talking about!

John and Rachael @ Korcula Explorer were fantastic to deal with! They set up accommodations and transportation for us, all of which were seamless! They definitely took the hassle out of traveling abroad (from the U.S.) I would recommend their wine tour, it was lots of fun and it gives you a chance to meet your fine hosts! I will be returning to Korcula and when I do I will be booking through Korcula Explorer!

Once again, many thanks for all that you have done for us, we would highly recommend your services to anyone in need of them!"

 

Diane visited Korcula in June 2013 and we arranged a boat trip of the area for a her and her friends

Diane said "You have been most helpful. We appreciate your finding the boat for us. We bought snorkeling stuff and were able to do that. Thanks again. We absolutely loved Korcula...what a wonderful, magical place!."

Chrissie said "Just wanted to write and thank you for all your excellent recommendations for our holiday in Korcula last week. The accommodation was lovely with lots of space and I will make sure that I write a review on your website.  

Thank you again and we hope to be back again - miss the sunshine and relaxed pace of life already!"

John M stayed at Apartment K6-A4 in August 2012

John said "It would be useful to provide a map and full name and address for the accommodation - we struggled to find the apartment when we first arrived. And a description of how to walk there from the bus station / ferry along the waterfront."

 

Korcula Explorer comment:- Thank you for the feedback John. Usually we request that the owner of the apartment and guest liase to make check-in arrangements, including any directions required. Our Apartment Booking Confirmation also contains details about the accommodation location. We now have all apartments pinpointed on a Google Map and are happy to provide any additional directions as required. As a future improvement, we will also work with the apartment owners to provide directions on the Apartment Booking Confirmation.  

 

Liz D stayed at Apartment K16-A1 in August 2012

Liz said "Very helpful service from you guys."

 

Kaitlin and Mat married in Dubrovnik in August 2012 and then spent time travelling to Mljet and Korcula. We provided their transport to each location and arranged a wine tasting and lunch tour for the wedding party.

Kaitlin said "You guys were absolutely great to work with - the best tour company I used on Korcula by far - and I know that my family members were passing along your contact info to people they met on Korcula who had heard about the wine tasting and wanted to try something similar (hopefully they got in touch with you!).

 

The boat transfers that you planned went totally smoothly (although for future reference the Moreska was really pretty full with 35 people and luggage, even though it says it seats 50 plus luggage - it was fine for us, but I wouldn't put more than 35 on it in the future if there are suitcases as well). And the wine tasting was a huge hit - I kept getting compliments from my guests all day about how fun it was, and particularly about what an awesome place I had chosen for lunch (I had to keep correcting everyone to the fact that I had nothing to do with choosing the lunch spot, it was all you guys!). But all in all, it was really a fabulous day, and you both clearly had put in a lot of work to make it fun and to make it run smoothly, and we really really appreciate it!

 

Please feel free to use this email as testimony on your website. I would be happy to help spread the word about Korcula Explorer since we had such a great experience with you guys! Hope you're both well - and I'm jealous thinking about how you're on that beautiful island right now and I'm not!

Celia L stayed at Room K24 in June 2012

Celia said "Liked your guide on restaurants etc. (tried More in Lumbarda - great location, good food) - all very helpful. Would have been good to have information about bike trips and hiking trails -we got lost! where to get detailed maps etc. Also info on good places to swim. Great service."

 

Korcula Explorer comment:- Thank you Celia for your feedback and sorry to hear you got lost. We enjoy exploring the island walking and hiking and finding new places to swim so will make sure we start including this information on the website and blog.

 

Anon comment from June 2012

Diane said "We are really thankful for all of your fabulous services. Most of all your friendly help and honesty. Not to mention all your tips and recomendations. We are really glad we found your website as it could not be run by nicer more down to earth people. Korcula is definitely a fantastic and beautiful place to visit and has so much to offer. And we feel like we got the most out of our time there with much thanks to Korcula Explorer. We would have no hesitations in recommending either of you to other travellers."

 

Danielle L satyed at Apartment K1-A4 in June 2011

Explorer was very helpful with the booking answering questions very truthfully and detailed about the apartment and it was very easy to book through them. We have stayed in private apartmani before, but it is always a bit of hassle to book since there is no major booking-site for these places, so book with Explorer was really very easy. And the apartment was very nice with a fabulous location and view. But we looked for one of the restaurants you had recommended but we never found it, maybe you should explain the location a little more detailed than "behind the harbour" :)

 

Korcula Explorer comment:- Thank you Danielle for you feedback and glad you found it easy to book with us. We have now marked all the restaurants we recommend or mention on a Google Map to make it easier for people to find them.
