How hard is the cycle ride?

We recommend that you have a good level of fitness for the cycle ride. You will cycle around 10kms and this includes several hills and some off road terrain. Keep in mind as well it gets very hot on Korcula, especially from late June until the end of August and you will be cycling in the sun. We would class the ride as moderate but the hills and heat can be more of a challenge for some people. Although the ride is leisurely, we just want to ensure you will be comfortable to complete the ride.

What should I wear?

We advise that you wear clothes and shoes that you are comfortable cycling in.

What should I bring with me?

We suggest that you bring a minimum of 1 litre of water per person for the cycle ride.

Can I buy wine at the wineries?

Yes you can buy wine at both wineries. Please note they do not accept card payments so ensure you have cash (Kuna) with you it you plan to buy any wine.

Where does the tour start from & where do we meet?

We will meet you in a central meeting point in Korcula Town. We provide a map of where to meet on the Tour Confirmation.

Can you accommodate dietary requirements or food allergies?

Please let us know upon booking if you have any dietary requirements or food allergies. We can usually accommodate all. Please keep in mind the Croatian diet is fairly meat/dairy heavy so alternative options may be more limited.

What is the payment & refund policy?

Should you need to cancel we will offer a full refund for any cancellations received at least 48 hours before the tour date.

Nomadic Foodies: In the Spotlight: Wine and Cycle Tour on Korcula Island

September 2020 Via TripAdvisor – 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!

August 2020 Via TripAdvisor – Great cycle and wines to be had! Ride is about hour and a half but only hour of cycling – couple of hills but otherwise really pleasant. You visit two wineries and was lovely to try the local grapes and some lovely bread, meats and cheeses at the last one! If you’re in Korcula I would highly recommend

Sarah, August 2020
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!

Via TripAdvisor, July 2020 Great afternoon!!!
We had a lovely afternoon with John cycling around the beautiful island of Korcula and finishing with wine tasting at two adjacent vineyards. After the seven mile bike ride, which was largely traffic free, we arrived at the first family run winery where spent an hour tasting a selection of wines and liqueurs. We then moved to the next winery and repeated the process but this time with a delicious platter of meats, cheeses, bread and olive oil, all of which was produced locally. We stayed there for a few more hours before getting a taxi back to Korcula town. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon out with John who had an extensive knowledge of the island and the local wine industry. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour with the fabulous host John!
