We (Rachael and John) moved to the beautiful Island of Korcula in Southern Croatia in 2010. We love to share the best bits of the island with as many people as we can and created a range of wine and food centric tours to do so.
Korcula was a three night stop during a backpacking tour of Europe, which seems like many years ago, but this time was not enough. So after several trips to see what else the amazing country of Croatia had to offer and re-visiting Korcula many times, our mind was made up. We decided that we had found the perfect place to live and work in a field we could truly be passionate about. Leaving behind our 9 to 5s (more like 7 to 7s) in England, we started a new life in our favourite place to offer a service we wish we had as travelers.
We are often asked why we moved to Croatia. Of course for the sun, but we wanted to live a much more relaxed and enjoyable lifestyle.
Korcula boasts so much outstanding natural beauty and is home to fantastic people - many who produce some of the Island's most delicious delicacies and some of the country's best wines. So we created a business that allows us to enjoy days out showing travellers a fantastic time: meeting locals, enjoying the best of the island's produce, and absorbing the culture in magnificent surroundings. We like to create a relaxed and fun environment and are not shy when it comes to indulging in the tour's highlights (a'hem wine) with our guests!

Thank you for two wonderful tours. Our aim was to see the countryside and enjoy some good wine. You accomplished all of those aims.
We absolutely loved our day with you. I will add a great review on Google and TripAdvisor when we get home.
Thanks for a wonderful evening. We appreciate John’s time and knowledge of the local wines as well as the Croatian culture.
Today was incredible. You are delightful. I feel like we truly connected and we have already shared your info w/our ships activities coordinator. Thank you for a very special day
A must do! We thoroughly enjoyed this bike tour, through places we would never have discovered otherwise. John was extremely welcoming and informative in a very relaxed way. Wonderful food and wine with stunning views. It was great to meet more local food and wine producers. The final sunset cycle was definitely a highlight. This is one of the best things we have done in Korčula. Hvala!
Rachael a super knowledgable, fun, and insightful host. I’ve been coming to Korcula since I was born without having experienced the amazing winery, beekeeper, and homestead she took us to. We bought lots of unique, thoughtfully made products and cant wait to do the tour next year. Highly recommend!
The BEST tour we did in Croatia! We travelled along the entire coast and did so many tours but were blown away by this one. Rachel was an incredible guide – who was very informative, easy to talk to & fun! We got to visit two local wineries & a honey farm which all had delicious food, wines & desserts and were all so welcoming & warm. If we ever go back to Korcula we will be repeating this Tour.
Great afternoon of walking through olive and fig groves + vineyards with Rachael. I was the only person on the tour that day to travel slowdowns and so I received a personal tour from Rachael. Great tasting at two wineries and as you can see, I bought a bottle at each. (Although there was no pressure at all to do so.). Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed ourselves! Thank you so much for the great tour, John. Hope to see you again in Korcula, or maybe even London. We’ll recommend your tours to all our friends and family who visit Croatia. Best of luck to you both!
My fiance and I did a fully day cycling tour with John and loved every second of it. We had so much fun riding through the island learning about its history and culture and sampling wines throughout. John is very knowledgeable and easy going and biking was a great way to see the island. We also checked out a locals beach that was absolutely gorgeous and fun too. Highly recommend as a great way to see Korcula!
After receiving five consecutive Certificate of Excellence awards from TripAdvisor, we became Korcula's first tour operator Hall of Fame winners in 2019.
