Day 1-Saturday 

Check into your hotel anytime before 2:30pm. If you arrive early, bags may be stored. We meet in the hotel lobby at 2.30pm for our first activity. We will walk through a bit of the old town to the trail head where we begin our hike up to Mt Srd.  If you choose not to hike, you can take the cable car or a taxi.  We are treated to  amazing vistas on our hike and will enjoy a complimentary, refreshing beverage at the top!  It’s a cable car ride back down. Our welcome dinner with wine tonight is at a wonderful restaurant in the old city.

Day 2-Sunday

After a hearty breakfast, we are met at the hotel by our very knowledgeable guide, for a private walking tour of Dubrovnik, highlighting important historical events. For any  GOT fans, this is right up your cobbled alley!  After the walking tour, we pick up our luggage and meet our boat for a private transfer to the island of Sipan. This island is not a usual pick on most organized tours. It is my “hidden secret” and very far removed from the glitz and glamor  of the other islands. Sipan moves to the beat of its own drum.
