Once everyone has been picked up, drive by bus or van to the Croatian/Montenegrin border crossing.

Branko was an excellent guide providing us with a tremendous amount of information on the history of Dubrovnik. We really enjoyed the tour and the 3 hours was a perfect amount of time. He also gave us recommendations for other sights to visit and a great restaurant to eat at. Would highly recommend.

We had a great experience on this day trip. Both the waterfalls and Mostar are worth a visit. Our tour guide Joško was excellent, he shared knowledge throughout the trip on Dubrovnik, Croatia, Yugoslavia, Bosnia and more. The drive was very comfortable with a couple of nice breaks.

Extremely nice, motivated guide who worked on the production himself and passed on great information. We recommend! You see Dubrovnik from a different perspective.

This was an amazing day trip. Perast is stunning and we loved the boat ride to Kotor. Definitely recommend if you have a little extra time in Croatia.
