Departure Time

8:00 AM
Get picked up at your hotel in the morning and hop in the air-conditioned vehicle to start the island excursion. On your way to the port of Gruž, learn from your guide about the history and culture of the places you'll be visiting that day. Once at the port, climb aboard a catamaran and get ready to sail the Adriatic with your guide and group. Drink in the incredible views and the natural beauty of the area.

Hop off the boat at Polace, located on the northern end of Mljet, and take a scenic ride to Pristanište. Drive through Mljet National Park and stroll along the hiking trails, flanked by verdant shrubbery and trees. Learn about the history of the islands -- that the name comes from the Greek word for 'honey,' or that it was first mentioned in records as far back at the 6th century BC. Hop in another boat to cruise around two inland salt-water lakes, Malo Jezero and Veliko Jezero and enjoy more pristine natural scenery.

After the boat ride around the lakes, transfer to a second boat for a trip to the diminutive island of St. Mary. Explore the small isle with your guide and discover the incredible 800-year-old Benedictine monastery. Spend some free time on the island, indulging in a delicious Dalmatian lunch (at own expense), take a dip in the refreshing Adriatic waters or go on a leisurely stroll around the island before heading back to Dubrovnik and getting dropped off at your hotel in the late afternoon.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Dubrovnik
After pickup from your hotel in the morning by comfortable vehicle, leave Dubrovnik with your professional guide to the port of Gruz. Here, board on a catamaran to start your exciting small-group trip to the beautiful Mljet island -- one of the most stunning islands in the Mediterranean Sea and the biggest island of the South Dalmatian archipelago. Take in the natural beauty and watch sailors cruising in the bay. Disembark at Polace on the northern coast of the island and enjoy the scenic drive to Pristanište.
Stop At:  
Mljet Island
Your friendly guide will take you to the Mljet National Park, which covers the entire northwest part of Mljet. Walk along the pleasant, shaded paths and hike up the hills to enjoy the stunning scenery from hills above the Mljet coastline. Take a boat ride out onto two saltwater lakes, Veliko and Malo Jezero, which stretch for 2.5 miles (4 km), and listen as your guide gives you more insights about the national park while you sit back and enjoy floating on the lakes. From here, take a second boat ride to the small isle of St Mary. Discover with your guide the magnificent Benedictine monastery, erected in 12th century. Then, enjoy leisure time to have lunch (on your own expense), swim in the turquoise water or take a relaxing walk on the beautiful island before returning to your Dubrovnik hotel in the late afternoon.

I went on three tours with Super Tours and I felt this one was a little disorganized long waiting time for bus and boat, meaning less time to explore the national park. If you have the time, I highly recommend going to Mljet NP for two days because one day isn't enough! It's a beautiful island and I wish we would have had time to do some hiking.

Faye

Mljet is a lovely island but aspects of the trip were not great. Our guide was wonderful, knowledgeable and knew how to navigate the crowds. However, the catamaran we took over offered no outdoor space and so all were inside where it was hot, stuffy and stale while the beautiful outdoors was going by. We wished we had gone on a ferry on our own, rented bikes that are at the pier and done the trails. There was not time to do the trails with the tour.

There were only three participants in this tour. The young guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. All organizational aspects worked well, with a fast catamaran ride to and from Dubrovnik, motor van to the lakes, motor boat to the Island of St Mary with a break to look around, another boat to the meeting place of the two lakes, three hours to do one's own thing and then van and ferry back to Dubrovnik. It is an excursion well worth doing.

Although Mljet and St. Mary's were quite beautiful, our tour guide seemed to lack the enthusiasm for his role as guide. Mainly he seemed to just send us off on our own without clear instructions of where to meet back up later and whenever we looked for he, we found him sitting in a cafe smoking a cigarette and having a beer. Very disappointing- we have come to expect much more from Viator tours!

You would do better to simply arrange your own transport to Mljet. - First of all, the catamaran that takes you to Mljet is, essentially, a public ferry shared with dozens of people. It takes two hours to get to Mljet, partly because the ferry makes several stops. - Our tour guide a middle-aged blonde woman lacked clarity and did little beyond take us from one point to another. Entirely devoid of the minimum degree of charm usually associated with tour guides, she had no interest in telling us anything about Mljet. - There was no consideration made to when we were supposed to have lunch. - Planning was minimal and haphazard. Transport was generally less than ideal. We had to wait for a boat, stand in a van and walk for 1.5 km to reach a bus. - The itinerary wasn't well-planned. I would have preferred to spend more time in the stop after St Mary's Islands, where we could have swum and relaxed. Instead that was cut short to allow time for the final stop near the pier, where there was less to do. In short, this trip was simply not worth its cost. Go to Mljet on your own! You'd enjoy it much better that way. If you've already been spending some time in Croatia, the scenery in Mljet may not be as mind-blowing, but it's quieter and more serene, so I think you are better off going there on your own schedule, rather than joining this overpriced, poorly planned, rushed and uncomfortable tour.

Terry B
, Jun 2017
This was a beautiful area to visit and worth the trip. However our guide did not do any of the narrative or explaining of the trip as was advertised in the description of the tour. Basically he got us from one mode of transportation to the next and then vanished in between times. We were left to explore and learn about the area by either reading the posted material or tagging along with another tour group. We were late from the ferry and missed our first transportation connection and had to hang around for 40 minutes until the next one arrived. During that time other tour groups came and got on transportation before us. Obviously they had a tour guide that was organized. We had to wait for him to show up for the return ferry and we were boarded last. The tour guide fell asleep on the ferry and we had to find our own driver to return us to the hotel. Basically a lovey trip but a lousy tour guide.

Our tour guide, Anna from Spain was wonderful. She was friendly and energetic. Mljet is a beautiful island. We enjoyed the escape from Dubrovnik. The monastery was nice but not fantastic. Our favorite part was the swim. If you're not planning to swim, you'll find the day long and perhaps boring unless you're an avid hiker. I'd recommend this tour only if you have an extra day in Dubrovnik with time to spare. It's a long day, over 11 hours from pickup to drop off. The pacing of the tour could be improved. We waited on the dock for about an hour in the morning because of a too early pickup. On the island with the monastery we also had an hour when half would suffice. Our guide didn't know the boat timings well enough we discovered we had an extra 30 minutes on the island but by that time it was too late to eat lunch. Then we had 2 hours to walk about 1 mile to the swimming hole, swim and get back for transportation back to the port. At the port we had another 75 minutes to kill. This was our opportunity for lunch at 3pm. Perhaps the tour is constrained by the ferry service, but it would be nice to clump the free time together or give individuals choices about how to use all of the free time. For example, we would have opted to spend more time swimming and then eating lunch nearby and returning to the port later. There's little imparting of information here by the tour guide, merely shepherding you from point A to point B to point C, etc... Also as others have said, the two hour ferry ride each way is unimpressive. You can't go out on the deck to snap photos, nor is any narrative provided as to what islands or points of interest you may be passing.

I was hoping for more information/history of Mljet. It was really just a ferry ride and entry into national park. I would've also liked more information about activities to do on Mljet in the free time allotted.
