* A traveler said: "My husband and I visited Rovinj for the first time this past week and were eager to see the Istrian countryside and wineries. We have had many wonderful tours in the past through Viator so we researched again and were so lucky to find the Wine Tour the Best of istria hosted by Agnieszka. It was an incredible day, Agnieszka or Agi for short, picked us up near our hotel and we were off to explore the beautiful wine region. Throughout the entire day she showed us so many beautiful sights in Istria, explained the history and was very knowledgeable about the wines and cultures in this region. We visited 3 incredible wineries, toured their cellars and tasted many of their wines including delicious local foods along the way. In the late afternoon she brought us to a beautiful restaurant specializing in local dishes with truffles for an incredible early evening meal. We ended the day at a gorgeous winery with views to the sea, it was an incredible day with a very engaging, lovely tour guide. We fell in love with Agi and her beautiful Istrian home. We plan to return next summer and plan to tour again with her again learning about truffles, olive oil and more wine. We highly recommend this tour, it was a full 10 hours and fabulous!"

* A traveler said: "Loved this trip! Sailed for around an hour until we reached the charming town of Rovinj which is definitely worth a visit. The crew on the boat were extremely friendly, we were all given a free shot of grappa which is pretty rough but as it was a group experience we all loved hating it together. When we returned to the boat after an hour and a half on Rovinj lunch was served to us, mackerel or sausage and chicken with bread and sauerkraut, wine, juice and water. The food wasn’t fantastic (I’d go with the fish) but it wasn’t terrible either and everyone on the boat enjoyed hand feeding seagulls with any leftovers. Second stop was Vrsar which wasn’t as nice as Rovinj but gave the opportunity to swim, although the beach was pretty packed. On the way back to port we were given more grappa and treated to one of the crew playing the accordion. This trip offers real value for money!"

The idea of half-day tour is to present wines from two different wineries for those who are limited with time. You will have opportunity to try fresh and aged wines made from indigenous grape varieties but also blends with international grape varieties. One winery is young, second one has long tradition but both wineries are among the best in Croatia with international recognition and international awards. During half day program you would have two professional wine tastings with an expert guide from each winery with rich, local snacks, you would visit wine cellars and experience the beauty of Istria. Transportation and guiding are included in price. I include only the best wineries and restaurants in my programs. Wine tastings in wineries are scheduled by special arrangement and you are not obligated to buy wines in wineries, only if you wish to.
