DUBROVNIK & THE DALMATIAN COAST
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Walking around the walls of Dubrovnik, after the guided tour- the views were great The views from Montokuc on Mljet – worth the effort Cocktails in the tower (Korcula)
What did you think of your group leader?
Very good. Always happy to answer any of our questions. Good at keeping us organised, but without making us feel hurried. Though he wanted to tell/shows us more around places like Split he couldn't due to guide regulations, but was always on hand for a suggestion of something interesting we should see.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
If you go for the walk up the Montokuc on Mljet buy some lunch in the shop on the island. Our climb took longer then expected and as a result we didn't get back in time to order food from the restaurant before the boat back – but there was time for a well deserved quick pint! If you are getting any Kuna before you depart it's handy to have some 10s, 20s, & 50 notes. One course meal and drink can vary between 80-150. If you have smaller denominations it just makes life easier (Instead of everyone trying to break 200 notes) Like others I wasn't initially sure about going to Mostar, but glad I went. Though the drive was 3+ hours it was good to see another country/culture. As many of the group reasoned -you're more likely to return to Dubrovnik for a long weekend, then to pop to Mostar.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Personally I would have liked it if we had a local guide for Split/Korcula town for an hour or two, to give us an overview of these two places (Like we had for Dubrovnik) . Though saying that, sometimes just walking around on your own is a good way to see a place Overall its a nice leisurely trip, ideal if you want a relaxing holiday with good food and culture
