How long does the tour take?

You will need a minimum of 2-2.5 hours to complete the tour. However, we recommend that you take your time and make a day out of it. For example, you could take your swimming gear and head to the beach, stop for an extra glass of wine at one of the wineries or enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

How long and how hard is the cycle ride?

The total length of the ride is just under 16kms (excludes any additional riding to
Optional Points of Interest). This includes some hills and off-road terrain. We recommend that you have a good level of fitness for the cycle ride. 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.

Patty, July 2019 (Via TripAdvisor) –
Nice way to explore the island
We opted for the self-guided tour because I wanted to take our time. It was an easy ride and received the discount when we rented the bikes and told them we were doing the tour. We also stopped at the winery and mentioned their name and they were so nice and hospitable.

Sophia, September 2018 – We had a wonderful day and trip overall. Lumbarda was so beautiful. We tried the pizza place for lunch and it was indeed phenomenal. The wine tastings were also a great experience.

Amanda & Ryan, September 2018 – We enjoyed the Korcula biking tour a lot! Thanks for putting together such a nice self-guided tour, we also enjoyed running up the steps at the old church 🙂

Matt & Janine, August 2018 – Well we had a fantastic day yesterday and probably totally overdid it with the food and drinks for a bike tour, but worth it.

Emma & Nick, August 2018 – I have posted a review on trip advisor – the tour was fantastic! Thank you very much for all the little details and personal stories – we had a lovely time finding all the little places on the map and thoroughly enjoyed the winery!

Sam, July 2018 – We LOVED the bike tour. We ended up spending time at beach in Lumbarda.

Katie, May 2018 – We enjoyed the tour! We didn’t take any pictures for Instagram because we were too lazy to get our phones out of our bag 🙂 The map was great and very clear, and the info you all included was super helpful. Great job!

Sara May 2018 – We really enjoyed the tour! We had a nice break at the winery and they were very helpful. We’re not much for instagram but the scenery really was beautiful and it was a great way to spend the morning. Thanks for everything!

Helena May 2018 – We had a great time on the tour, and indeed in Korula generally – what a glorious place! The downpour held us up a little at the start of the day, but certainly did not dampen our spirits, and the wine-tasting definitely made up for it. What was really nice was meeting up with others (at various points along the route) who were doing the same tour.

Karen May 2018 – We really enjoyed the cycle ride to Lambarda today despite the huge thunderstorm. Mira was charming and we enjoyed the Grk. We bought a bottle so I hope it travels well!
We did go down to the lighthouse at the end of the island and have good photos there. It was worth it despite the rough track and hill.
