We spent all our days but this one in the historic center of Dubrovnik, which is jam packed with tourists and a hustle and bustle place. The journey into the beautiful, quiet and serene countryside was a wonderful respite. Our driver, Zio, was a wealth of information. He was very solicitous and made sure we had a wonderful time. The trip was great! The food was the best we had in Croatia, and Zio was an absolute delight!

And excellent day out, visited the olive oil mill first, very interesting!!! Here you have a sample of food produced by the farmer. This was excellent, wine also included. The small town of Ston was also very interesting and the seafood platter at Mali Ston was also good. Well worth the money
