Remy – Summer 2023 “The Taste of Korcula tour definitely made our stay on Korcula even more memorable!
Our tour was by taxi bus which was nice. The cycling tour also sounded good, but because of the heat, my partner and I preferred a bit of comfort. We booked our tour a few days ahead and shared the tour with four other lovely people 🙂 People from the US, Sicily and the Netherlands so plenty of interesting stories to share. Rachael was our tour guide and boy was she good! She is extremely knowledgeable about the island itself and all the fantastic products you will taste. But any subject surely will end up in a nice conversation.
I was worried that during such a tour, you’d rush through all the places and be done with it. But that’s certainly not the case! First we visited a honey and gin producer who was also really nice. There you can taste all sorts of amazing things. A fun surprise there for any Dutch person 😏
We then went to the Cipre winery (Others were closed because of a local celebration, so you might visit a different winery). We tasted several wines made from the finest and rare Lumbarda grapes! Paired with delicious cheeses, figs, meats and bread. You will not want to leave without a few bottles 😉 Here we also had plenty of time to enjoy the great views, strike up conversations and taste all the wonderful products.
We finished the tour at a local home of Ivan & Ana. Upon entry you’re greeted by Ruby who loves a good pat on the head. Then you move to the nice seating area where you’ll be spoiled with all sorts of goodness. Ivan was a fantastic host and made sure we’ve got to taste every single product he makes before we took our leave again. Make sure to taste the figs and the olive oils, those were godlike! Perhaps snatch a bottle of oil and a few jars of jam!
Rachael, you we’re wonderful! Thank you. This island is one we will surely recommend”
Susanne – Summer 2023 “Really fun walking/wine/local food tasting tour. John is fun and made our experience feel like we were with a group of friends. Short drive to a couple of tasting places, then short walk to a winery. Gin, honey, sweets, wine, cheese! This was a fun time and we highly recommend booking a tour with Korcula Explorer.”
Brian – Summer 2022 “We did the Taste of Korcula tour and had a great time! Rachel brought us to 3 different spots but she let the food/wine/brandy/honey/gin makers tell their story about how they produce and make their products and she added on some extra Info.
It was all delicious, fun and informative. I would for sure recommend Korcula Explorer for any of their tours. we even did their self guided bike ride through Lumbarda and it was another highlight of our trip, just taking our time biking around the island enjoying the route they set out for you.”
Ruth – Summer 2022 “We did the food and wine tour with Rachael as our guide. She was a fountain of knowledge on all things in Korcula and extremely pleasant and helpful in all communications. I found the Korcula guide extremely helpful when planning our trip to Korcula.”
