Day : 2 Korcula and Brac Islands

Dubrovnik - Korcula. After breakfast this morning you can start the day with an optional walking tour of Dubrovnik, whether you are discovering Dubrovnik for the first or fiftieth time this enchanting city never fails to impress. In the early afternoon we depart for Korcula, a small town of immense beauty located on the northeastern part of the island of Korcula. On the way, we will stop for a break on one of the scenic Elafiti Islands, and lunch is served on board. We will arrive in Korcula late afternoon, and will be spending the night there. The medieval core of the town is built in a fishbone-like pattern on a small peninsula protruding into the sea, offering a great view of the sunsets it is known for.

We sail towards the island of Brac this morning, passing through the scenic Peljesac channel, around the tip of Peljesac peninsula and the southeastern tip of the island of Hvar. We then dock at Pucisca, a town nestled in a beautiful bay on Brac, surrounded by stone quarries that yield some of the whitest and best quality limestone in the world, famously used to decorate the façade of Washington's White House. You can join a short visit to a stonemasonry school nearby where you will learn of the Brac limestone, the centuries-old tradition of stonemasonry and the unconventional tools they use. Later in the day we sail to Omiš, where we will dock for the night.

Trogir, situated on a small island between the mainland and the island of Ciovo, is famed for its Romanesque-Gothic architecture, which landed it on the list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.

In the afternoon we continue sailing to Split, our port of call for the day. Upon arrival you are free to enjoy Split's Old Town and the monumental Diocletian Palace built over 1,700 years ago.

Afterwards continue sailing to Pomena on the island of Mljet where you will have the option to visit the Mljet National Park located on the western side of the island and known for its immense beauty and its two turquoise saltwater lakes surrounded by thick forest.

For the rest of the afternoon you will have plenty of free time to explore the park independently - consider renting bikes for a leisurely cycle or go for a walk along the numerous paths around the lakes or in the forests. You can also rent kayaks and cut the surface of the magnificent lakes to observe the scenery from a different perspective. For something more relaxing you can hop onto the small boat that will take you to a tiny island on one of the lakes, home to the monastery and church of St. Mary’s built in the 12th century.

Egypt is a fascinating country and its history was brought alive by Mo.

Myself and Ana enjoyed visiting the different sites and we were able to visit the tomb of Queen Nefartari, which was an added bonus. Abu Simbel blew my mind by its scale.

We both felt that there could've been more time given to those who wanted to explore sites. For example, our visit to Saqqara was limited and there was no opportunity to wander around. Perhaps give those who are more adventurous the chance to explore and rendezvous later?

A little more time in the markets would have been nice as opposed to just shopping at the co-ops. The tour that ended in Marrakesh got this opportunity but those finishing in Casablanca didn't. Our guide was fantastic. He went out of his way to accommodate the needs of the individuals in the group.

The highlights were the Valley of the Kings and scuba diving on the beautiful reefs of Hurghada in the Red Sea. I would highly recommend the King Ramses tour for anyone with a sense of adventure.
