What people are saying about Bosnia and Herzegovina

This was an amazing day trip! Ivanna was great and gave lots of history while traveling to Bosnia. Traveling with two kids (6&11 years old) and they had plenty of stops along the way so we could let them off. The waterfall and old town were amazing views. So glad we booked this day trip. They play Med us up and dropped us off which was great so we didn’t have to find where to go. Highly recommend this day trip. Would have loved more time at the waterfall but given the time frame can see why that’s not possible.

My guide was a man that actually lived thru the war. He spoke English fluently and was a wealth of knowledge. I enjoyed his presentation and his openness. He was an ex police officer and knew the city well. His van was clean and comfortable and he doesn’t smoke! If I’d had more time I’d of hired him for the Tito bunker tour. You can’t go wrong with this man. He loves Sarajevo and it shows!

Good: Nives, our tour guider was very informative and knowledgeable for the area. Bad: Bear in mind, there will be three border crossings each way, and it took a long time to complete all

Disco was a great tour guide, sharing interesting stories and history during our drive. Mostar was very interesting and the falls were beautiful. Would definitely recommend!

Very beautiful city Mostar and the waterfalls are breathtaking! Thank you Ivana, the driver and the guide in Mostar, you were at the TOP!
