We run a small travel & tour company on the beautiful Island of Korcula in Croatia specialising in wine and food tours. We have also recently set up a winter venture in Sarajevo, Bosnia i Hercegovina's fascinating capital city offering skiing, snowboarding & winter holidays.
For us travel should always be relaxed and allow the traveller to appreciate and learn about different cultures. We ensure any guests who join us on a tour or book a holiday through us are able to do this.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"We specialise in travel to Korcula Island, which is located in South Dalmatia. We arrange rental of self catering apartments, rooms & villas; run our own wine tasting tours including walking, cycling & driven options; we work with local people who offer other activities such as boat trips, day trips to nearby islands, detox days, yoga lessons and culinary classes; and we also arrange transport to/from Korcula Island by land or sea. We are always looking for new and interesting things to do so that we have a wide range of fun excursions to offer visitors. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"We are passionate travellers and during our back-packing tour around Europe several years ago, we fell in love with Croatia and especially Korcula. So upon re-locating here from the UK, we knew we wanted to promote the island and encourage people to not only visit, but to enjoy intimate experiences away from the typical tourist sights. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"We visited the stunning National Park Island of Mljet in May 2005 when it was low season and at a time when Croatia was still being "re-discovered" by travellers. We walked out to the edge of the lakes with oars in hand where a couple of kayaks were lying out for us. We paddled out across the lake, around the monastery with the sun shining on us and were amazed by just how clear the water was. There were a few tourists about but we were the only people kayaking and it felt like the lake was ours. It was just one of those dream days. "

Korcula is known for its white wine. Grk wine is a white wine grape variety found in the village of Lumbarda. To take in the Korcula scenery and drink some wine at the same time, join John (who moved to Korcula with his wife Rachael 6 years ago from the UK) on a 4-5 hour tour cycling through Lumbarda. Taste the different wines while getting the local intimate experience which you will not find anywhere else.

Wine Tasting and Cycling Day Tour in Korcula · Croatia - Jun 29 - Jun 29, 2019
An enjoyable experience despite the heat. We cycled through some lovely countryside and John made sure that the pace suited everyone. He also coped magnificently with two punctures en route. The wine tastings lived up to expectations.
Wine Tasting and Cycling Day Tour in Korcula · Croatia - Aug 21 - Aug 24, 2018
My wife and I joined two tours in Korcula, Croatia with Rachael and John. One a guided walk through an old town called Znovo followed by an amazing dinner with Frank and his family. The second was a cycling and wine tasting tour which involved cycling from Korcula through the
Lumbarda countryside and stopping at two venues for wine tasting and snacks.
Both were well organised and most enjoyable. Sue and I can highly recommend both tours.

Michelle was an absolute dream to work with, I tend to be very indecisive and she really helped me and my husband plan a wonderful trip. She gave great recommendations of places to eat, things not to miss and was even able to schedule a wine and cycling tour for us when it wasn't originally available. A few minor things could have been different but really did not impact our trip at all.
Our cycling tour with John was one of our favorite parts of the trip, he was an absolute joy to spend... read more
