Private Boat Excursion of Elaphite Islands from Dubrovnik

Select Date and Travellers
USD 441.33
per group (up to 10)
2 travellers
What to Expect
Explore the beautiful islands off the coast of Croatia by sailboat – a replica of a historical galleon – and experience breathtaking views of the Dubrovnik region. Discover three of the most beautiful of the islands, Koločep, Lopud and Šipan, and learn about the history of each place, as your boat makes its way from Dubrovnik through the azure blue Adriatic Sea. The Elafiti Islands, reportedly an ancient Greek word for ‘deer,’ was an old hunting grounds for the Greeks.

Today they are a bucolic archipelago, studding with old sleepy villages and a verdant countryside. Dock the boat at each island and explore the places on your own. Walk through citrus and olive groves, diminutive villages with centuries-old manor houses and churches right on the sea.

Abut midway through the adventure, sit down on the island of Šipan to a typical Croatian lunch. Indulge in grilled seafood and sip some locally made wine while a band performs traditional Dalmatian folk music for you.

Then head back to Dubrovnik and get dropped off at your hotel.

this was the worst trip in 35yrswe have ever had
we were to be picked up at 7.15am in a mini bus as booked they arrived at 7.45, it was a small bus with already 6 people in it, we told to sit in the front when asked what was going on the driver told us he was taking us to a bigger bus he collect another 2 passengers, we waited about another 15 mins for the most disgusting bus to arrive this was the worst possible trip the bus was old dirty air conditioner didn't work seats were broken the girl in front of us was like a rocking horse all day it laid back and couldn't stay up, the girl next to her seat was wet and she had to sit on a plastic bag the microphone only crackled couldn't understand the tour guide, by the time she tried to fix his whatever she was telling us about the site was gone to make matters worst we pulled down our tray table and there was leftover food on the both of them ham cheese we stayed in Mostar for 4 hours what a waste of time don't book this trip through the same people we did itinerary number 1102580398 2 adulys $177.10A

Trip with hit booker Dubrovnik to Mostar
Very disappointed with the trip to Mostar. Poor personal , driver and guide very incompetent people. The mini van use for the trip is small a tall men wouldn’t fit in the mini van also the music is to lound and the air conditioning is low and the driver refusing to put it up. Waste of time like taking detour to make it longer. Arrogant driver and guide won’t shut up. I give this trip a 2/10 very bad.

Amazing tour! First time to Croatia
Wow what an amazing day! We booked the private day tour thru viator and since it was our first trip to Croatia we wanted to have convenience of a driver and someone from the area. Mateo picked us up right on time and off we went. From the moment we met him he was kind, knowledgeable and fascinating to talk to. I would ask for him when booking as he really added to the history and background of Croatia. We traveled into Bosnia Herzegovina and Mostar and although the weather was not ideal the trip was all the better as Mateo really shared his culture and all the beauty of his home. It was such a relief not to worry about driving crossing the borders and pick ups times. He was always on time and a joy to see! Mateo thank you for making such memories you are the best! P.S. he loves NBA basketball and it was a joy to share our Milwaukee Bucks with him as he is a huge fan!

Amazing views and food
We came for the food but the views of the city walls and harbor may have upstaged our five course meal. The resturant, aptly named for the panoramic views, is set up above the city wall and the harbor. We had a 5 course meal and the staff worked hard to explain each course and the chefs intention behind each bite. The price was reasonable- half what we would spend in the US at a Michelin star resturant.

Not as interesting as we had hoped
We joined a minibus tour to Montenegro stopping at Our Lady of the Rocks and Kotor before returning to Dubrovnik. The trip took about 7 hours, 4 of which were in the minibus. I had been told that the north coast of Montenegro was very beautiful but it is no more so than the area around Dubrovnik. Our Lady of the Rocks was of some interest but very busy with groups on our arrival. Kotor is like a smaller version of Dubroovnik, charming and friendly, and the walk up the walls above the town was enjoyable (take reasonable walking shoes/trainers). However, we didn´t feel that we had gained much from the experience and it did not inspire me to explore Montenegro further based on this, very brief visit alone.

Unreliable! We book in advance a tour to Mostar, which had been confirmed date, time and place of meeting. At 11 PM the day before, we received a message cancelling it . They offered us another day. But we were leaving the day after the tour. They did not even try to arrange a tour in other agency..

Excursion Dubrovnik à Mostar
Pour avoir fait souvent des excursions, je peux vous dire que je suis extrêmement déçue. Monospace petit remplie à pleine capacité ce qui veut dire un touriste assis en avant entre le chauffeur et le guide ... les fenêtres très sale, alors oublié les photos de l'intérieur !!! Musique trop forte, air climatisé très faible. Donc transport très désagréable et vous avez quelques heures à faire donc à considérer!!! Le guide parle 3 langues dans le même trip donc très fatiguant voir agaçant. Chauffeur extrêmement peu courtois et guide laisse à désirer. 4 arrêts donc 2 très décevant et pièges à touriste, marché aux puces, jus fait par les habitants et ventes de fruits et noix. Finalement nous arrêtons que pour les faires vivre de notre tourisme honnêtement moi j'aime les excursions qui sont commentées sur l'histoire, l'architecture ou la beauté de la nature.

Paseo de día completo a Bosnia Herzegovina desde Dubrovnik
Hola soy Sandra mi esposo escogió este viaje para conocer algo sobre este país desde Dubrovnik y nos permitió darnos la idea de lo que se puede visitar. Él tour llega a las 12 a Medjugori justo a la hora de la misa. Después fuimos a Mostar donde disfrutamos mucho de la ciudad vieja y el puente viejo,las compras y la comida muy buenas gracias a las muy buenas recomendaciones de nuestro guía Tjezko. Solo tienes que tener paciencia para cruzar las fronteras 3 de ida y 3 de regreso, gracias a que no era temporada alta, no esperamos mucho. Un viaje muy recomendable.

Falta total de responsabilidad
El tour operator ha cancelado la visita a Montenegro, sin aviso previo y a nuestro llamado en un tono borde y desagradable respondió que se olvidó de avisar. Hemos perdido el día.Estamos a la espera del inmediato reembolso del tour. Lamentable servicio.

Lo mas lindo el puente
Viaje muy largo, se pierde mucho tiempo en las fronteras y al llegar solo se ve el puente y tiempo libre (no mucho) para ver las tiendas del lugar.Lo mejor es la vista desde la mezquita

Bonitas vistas
Pequeño restaurante con vistas increíbles a los tejados de la cuidad, pero con las mesas tan agolpadas que hacen difícil disfrutar de una cena romántica.. Ubicado en un edificio de 4 plantas y sin ascensor, demasiado para rematar un día despues de "patear" la ciudad
