During a six hour private guided tour today you will get to tour of the Dubrovnik Hinterland – the region of Konavle.
Meet your private driver and guide in the hotel lobby and relax on the drive to the ancient Mediterranean town of Cavtat. After a 7th century invasion destroyed the town, refugees from the Cavtat formed another settlement, Dubrovnik. Your guide will take you for a stroll through this picturesque little town and up to the top of the hill where you will discover the extraordinary Mausoleum of the Račić Family.
After the walk, continue your exploration of the traditional countryside of Konavle. In the village of Čilipi, a local family will welcome you at their humble estate that has a small ethno-museum presenting Konavle's history, a tavern with a wine cellar, and a variety of agricultural buildings. While you enjoy their hospitality, they will serve a traditional lunch.
After lunch, you will be brought back to Dubrovnik. Entrance fees and lunch are included.
This morning meet your private driver in the hotel lobby for 2 hour transfer to the small town of Orebic at Peljecas peninsula where you will board the public ferry to Korcula. Upon arrival in Korcula, meet your local guide for a 2 hour private tour of the Old Town of Korčula. This secluded part of the world is known as the home town of Marco Polo – the first world traveler. With more than 2,000 years of history, the former Greek colony of the “Black Korčula” resisted the sieges of centuries and remained a living monument that is now yours to discover. Through the narrow cobblestone streets you will come to the Cathedral of St. Marko, an architectural masterpiece in Gothic and Renaissance style. Its construction is an admirable testimony of the artistry of the local stone masons and the excellent adamant stone of the island. The Cathedral’s abbatial collection abounds with exhibits from Greek and Roman period, as well as with peculiar artifacts of the recent history. You will visit also the Town Museum of Korčula, with its interesting exhibits illustrating the island’s glorious naval history. Your stroll will finally take you to Marko Polo’s childhood home – a modest mediaeval house from which originates this great Venetian merchant, writer and traveler. In the early afternoon, you will embark for the ferry back to Orebić where you will meet your driver for a private transfer back to Dubrovnik. On your way, you may stop in Ston – a small town known as the paradise for sea food lovers. Ston was also an important military fort of the Ragusan Republic, which was well protected by massive city walls over 5 km in length. These medieval walls from the 14th century are the longest city walls in Europe. The wall was meant to protect the precious salt pans that contributed to Dubrovnik's wealth, which are still in use today.
This morning meet your driver in the hotel lobby for a private transfer to Montenegro – a mystical land of wild beauty. Your local guide will welcome you at the border of Croatia and Montenegro. In Boka Bay, the only fjord in the Mediterranean, mountains sink in the crystal-clear sea in front of your eyes in the unique harmony of intact nature and cultural heritage. Your first destination is the old town of Perast, a sleepy baroque town on the seashore. The strong merchant navy tradition represents the best preserved baroque entity in the Adriatic. The most beautiful buildings of this small town were built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Perast also abounds in sacred monuments, such as the Church Sveti Nikola and Our Lady of the Rocks, built on the artificial island just opposite Perast. Following your visit to Perast, your guide and driver will take you to Kotor, hometown of the famous sailors and traders of Boka Bay. Kotor’s architecture, a post-modern mix of the various epochs and its position at the bottom of the sharp cliffs of the Lovcen Mountain, makes it different from any other Mediterranean town. Your guide will take you to the Cathedral of St. Trifun, a monument of Roman culture and one of the most recognizable symbols of the town. You will also visit the Maritime Museum, the custodian of Boka navy fame. Continue onwards to Budva, considered to be one of the oldest settlements in the Balkans. This ancient town lies on a little island that was linked to land by a sandbar and in time became a peninsula. Your guide will take you for a walk around the 15th century ramparts and medieval fortifications. Inside the walls, you will find the town to be a combination of narrow streets and little squares, with superb monuments of the different Mediterranean cultures. From here, you will be transferred to your hotel in the area.
Enjoy a private welcome dinner at the hotel - what a nice start to your stay. Dinner includes a three course menu.
Come back from dinner to a romantic setting of flower petals on your bed and candles lighting up the room - romance is in the air!

Today you will meet your guide and driver in the hotel lobby for a private tour of Skadar Lake. The peacefulness of the lake, with its jagged coastline of many bays, islands, and peninsulas would enchant even the most experienced traveler. In the small fishing village of Virpazar you will be welcomed by a local family Uksanovic that will prepare a private wine tasting for you. Among others, you will taste the famous red vine Vranac, a product that Montenegrins are extremely proud of. From here, you will be taken on a private traditional boat that will reveal the lake’s opulent beauty in the most distinctive way. You will first come to the small island of Grmozur that used to house a prison for the political captives. Continue to the mouth of the Moraca River and the picturesque sandbar that is home to numerous shell species. Back on board, your host will prepare a light snack of homemade prosciutto, cheese, bread, and olive oil. Later you will pass by the Vranjina peninsula that hides the Monastery of St. Nicholas and the Lesendro fortress that represents the eternal torch of Montenegrin freedom. Many other fortifications can be found upon the islands, built by the Turks and later by the Montenegrins, bearing witness to the frequent battles fought here between these sworn enemies. At the end of your tour your guide and driver will take you back to your hotel where you can enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.
Enjoy a farewell dinner this evening - try the exquisite cuisine of Aman’s upscale restaurant Queen’s Chair, that serves Pan-Adriatic fare with a distinctive Italian flavour.
