Tour Highlights & Overview

  • Meet 3 local Korcula Island producers to learn more about island life
  • Try a range of honey all produced on the island using local bees!
  • Taste the refreshing Grk wine which is grown only in the village of Lumbarda
  • Learn how locally grown produce is turned into delicious preserves and brandies
  • Enjoy a short scenic walk in Lumbarda

Departing from Korcula Town towards Lumbarda by vehicle our first stop comes after no more than 5 minutes at one of the region’s top honey producers. Here we will learn how honey gets from the beehives to jars, followed by honey tasting.

After the honey tasting we transfer to Lumbarda to taste one of Korcula’s most famous products, it’s wine. The winery we visit produces the acclaimed and little known (outside of Croatia) white wine, Grk, as well as Plavac Mali (a red wine produced through-out Dalmatia with ties to American Zinfandel). All wines are paired with tasty Dalmatian snacks.

Leaving the winery, we take a short 10-minute walk arriving the scenic views of the village before arriving at our final destination to sweeten up our taste-buds. At the home of the jovial Ivan & Ana, we will taste an array of delicious homemade products including olive oil, preserves, sweet treats, Croatian rakija (brandy), domestic wine and to top the tour off, pancakes (crepe-style) with jam. We will also take a wonderful walk up through the olive & fruit trees for an amazing panoramic view. After we bid our new friends farewell, we’ll return back to Korcula.

Via Google July 2020 – 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.

Via TripAdvisor July 2020 – 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!

Note: We amended this tour for 2020 so the reviews below are related to a slightly different tour.

Diana August 2019 – I just wanted to let Rachael know that my husband and I felt she did an amazing job yesterday!.

Via TripAdvisor, August 2019Clearly in love with the island and the country John was informative but also allowed us to find our own conversational level (politics wine food and the arts) and provided just the right amount of knowledge about regional viticulture but with no pressure to buy additional products which all went to make this possibly the best holiday liquid lunch we’ve ever had.

Great company, wonderful insights and a very splendid day! Read more

Trine, August 2019We had the best time, it was a really great experience! You guys have really done a great job putting this tour together 🙂

Jane May 2019 – A belated thank you to you for such an enjoyable tour on Saturday. We so enjoyed sampling the local produce and meeting some of the locals, who were all so delightful and hospitable. It was a privilege especially to meet Ivan and his wife. The walk up through his olive grove and the view from the top will be a lasting memory of our trip.

Danielle, September 2018Thanks Rachael! We had such a nice time. It’s been a highlight of the trip so far 🙂 thanks for everything!!!

Via Tripadvisor, September 2018 – We had the good fortune to spend a delightful afternoon in the company of the wonderful Rachael from Korcula Explorer. My wife and I have not experienced a wine and food tasting tour before so did not really know what to expect. Read more

Kyle, August 2018We had a lovely time. Thanks again!
