Island hopping on a cruise with lunch and free wine
We visited the islands of Lopud, Sipan & Kolocep on a tour with Viator travel. A Great trip this again booked with Vitor Travel. It started in the Harbour in Dubrovnik and we boarded the boat and made our way out towards the islands that surround Dubrovnik . The boat was a bit cramped but there was enough room to move and have a good look at sights along the way. We had a good meal onboard and I had a nice bit of Fish and there was free wine to wash it down with, would defiantly recommend this trip you have plenty of free time and there are loads of bars to nip in for a drink.
