1. Mostar & Kravica Waterfall: Small Group Tour from Dubrovnik
Depart Dubrovnik and journey in a small group to the border of Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Continue to the small coastal town of Neum, admiring the pretty scenery of the Adriatic coast along the way. Make your way to the Kravica Waterfalls complex to see the amazing tufa cascades of the River Trebižat drop 25 meters through the lush green forest. In the springtime the force of the water can be truly dramatic, whilst in the summer and fall the pools become shallow enough for a refreshing swim. Next, drive to the historic city of Mostar to explore the old town and see the famous Old Bridge over the Neretva River. Take a short walking tour with a local guide and learn more about the town and its monuments. Benefit from some free time to explore on your own and enjoy a local meal. Travel back to Dubrovnik and get dropped off at your pick-up point.
This is a long tour = 12 hour day. Mostar can be hot in summer. Maria the tour guide does a great job with Dubrovnik Select Tours. Bus tends to be small, not so comfortable for long rides, but good value overall.

The trip was so good! The organisers were super accommodating with pick ups and on time. We didn’t have any trouble getting through the borders. You go first to the waterfalls which a beautiful I think entry to that was 80kunas then we drove to Mostar. The walking tour there was ok. You go to another small town on your way back. Throughout the drive the driver is telling you all about the areas you are driving through which was great as we learnt so much
3. Dubrovnik: Kravica Waterfalls and Mostar Day Trip
Start your journey in Dubrovnik and enjoy a less than 2-hour drive with your English-speaking driver. Discover the scenic routes of Croatia and across the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina. First, stop at the Kravica falls, one of the best-kept secrets of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The falls created by the river Trebizat provide a relaxing background for swimming and picnics in summer. Then, continue to your next stop, the city of Mostar. Join your local guide for a tour of the narrow cobblestone streets of the old town. Then marvel at the Old Bridge that crosses the river Neretva. Finally, stop at the medieval town of Počitelj, before going back to Dubrovnik.
We were picked up from the hotel. The ride was comfortable and the driver Luka was wonderful. It was like a mini tour along the way during the drive. In Mostar Irfaan, our local guide, explained us about the history of the place and showed us the beautiful city. On our way back we stopped at the Kravice waterfall. Very serene and beautiful. Not many tourists.Overall a very memorable trip and highly recommended to anyone travelling to Croatia.
4. From Split: Mostar Tour with Kravica Waterfall
A scenic route takes you through picturesque villages of Bosnia and Herzegovina as you approach Počitelj. This small medieval town was built on a rocky cliff on the Neretva River and gives a great overview of the Ottoman Empire. Take a short ride to Mostar – a city from the past. Explore the city with a local guide, find yourself bedazzled at the sight of the famous Stari Most (Old Bridge), connecting two medieval towers, giving the city a widely recognizable visual identity. See young locals showing off their daredevil stunts. Cross the bridge to check out the Ottoman quarter, attractively restored after the War in the nineties. Check out the old Bazar, the Mosque and, after the walking tour, explore the city on your own. This city will inspire you with its oriental structured streets and buildings, friendly people, tasty food, and very distinctive coffee culture, which might remind yo...
The trip to Mostar was a delight, as the historic city is beautiful, photogenic and provides a colorful change of landscape and culture, compared to Croatia, from the mosques, to the burek pastry and the Turkish coffee, served in cute little cups. In the morning a first stop was mode in Pocitelj, the first opportunity for a short hike, beautiful photos, and an enjoyable coffee break. The next stop was Mostar, where the temperature was really hot compared to Split. The local guide, Ana Maria, was really good at providing interesting and concise information about the history (old and new) of the place, as well as practical tips, and thus covering the introduction that should have been done by the Croatian guide (otherwise a funny guy), presumably. Border crossing was rather time consuming. On the way back to Split, a refreshing stop is made at Kravica waterfall. While the water is too cold for swimming, the scenery is lush and makes one forget about the hike back :-).
5. Mostar Day Tour From Split
Your tour starts at 7:00 AM in Split and you will head out to experience the ambiance of Bosnia and Herzegovina when visiting the incredible city of Mostar. Mostar is a small picturesque town, famous for its Old Bridge from the 16th century and professional jumpers who jump from the bridge into the cold Neretva River to impress visitors. The architecture here presents a symbol of tolerance: a shared life between Muslims, Christians, and Jews. A local guide will great you there and you will have a guided tour followed by 2 hours of free time for you to explore the rich culture of the city. The last stop on the tour depends on what the majority of the group wants to see. You can either visit the wonderful Kravica waterfalls where you can go swimming during the summer months or you can visit the Medjugorje Sanctuary where the Virgin Mary appeared in front of six witnesses. After the last s...
Super interessante und abwechslungsreiche Tour nach Bosnien Herzegowina. Gute Organisation und sicherer Transport. Zunächst wurde ein kleiner Ort besucht, danach ging es nach Mostar mit Stadtführung und Zeit zur freien Verfügung. Der Abschluss bildete ein Aufenthalt an wunderschönen Wasserfällen. Guide Josipa war sehr engagiert, ging immer auf die Wünsche der Teilnehmenden ein und begleitete den Tag sehr kompetent und sympathisch.

This day tour exceeded our expectations, thanks to our guide Mile, the time on the road was as interesting as the tour itself. Mile shared a lot of interesting facts regarding Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and in Mostar, we had an excellent guide sharing the city's history while guiding us through the old town. We had the opportunity to dine at an amazing restaurant called Tima-Irma an enjoyed a local mixed meat platter feast for two at very reasonable price. The Apparition Hill (a religious site) visit in Medjugorge was nice too, however this involves a bit of hiking on a rocky hill, which means proper footwear is recommended. The hike itself was worth it even for normal tourists. The tour lasted exactly 12 hours, border crossings were smooth and I thank the organisers for a well managed trip!

My guide RD was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, thoughtful and kind. He spoke very good English and was fun and interesting to be with. He was a great person, he showed me good sites that I would not have found on my own, and I really enjoyed spending the day with him

Stroll across the spectacular white-stone bridge and explore the blend of Moorish, Christian, and Muslim monuments that make up the town’s unique way of life.
We booked this trip while staying at a hotel in Cavtat. The next day we had it confirmed by an agent online that we would be picked up from our hotel and didn’t need to make our way to Dubrovnik and it’s was confirmed this was going to happen. The day before the trip we received a mobile call to say we need to get to Dubrovnik and they wouldn’t be picking us up at our Cavtat hotel. This we did via a taxi. Lucky our driver for the trip did drop us off at our hotel. So our advice is if your not staying in Dubrovnik and don’t want the cost of having to book a taxi think before you book this trip. As for the trip it’s self it was fantastic and we both enjoyed it!
9. From Dubrovnik: Mostar and Kravice Waterfalls Day Tour
From the meeting point in Dubrovnik, you'll make your way to Mostar, a culturally and ethnically diverse city, famous for its historic UNESCO-protected Old Bridge (Stari Most) over the Neretva River. During your 3-hour visit to Mostar, you will enjoy a walking tour of the old city and have free time to relax and explore on your own. After taking the time to discover Mostar and sip some traditional Turkish coffee, you will head to Kravice Waterfalls on the Trebižat River. Enjoy a refreshing swim in its waters before heading back to Dubrovnik.
It was a wonderful day but we had to pick up several people along the route. I did not like the fact that it was a large bus. The day before we went in a van to Bosnia and was better to get around and less hassle at the border because of more people to process. I would not take a large bus again. Mosel was beautiful

The starting point is usually in front of Info Bosnia Tourist Information Center located on main pedestrian street Ferhadija, just next to "Sarajevo Meeting of Cultures", but can be arranged from elsewhere, if requested.

What people are saying about Herzegovina-Neretva Canton
The tour group was very small, just 5 passengers plus the driver, who also was the guide. The small number allowed us to get to know each other as well as gain insight into Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was a long day of touring, but it went by quickly. The driver actually gave us an option of seeing Kravice Falls or Medjugorje. He dropped me and one other passenger off at the falls, and took the other three to the pilgrimage site. Both our driver/guide and the tour guide in Mostar were very informative.
Especial thanks to the tour guide Dino,, he was amazing The other are the wonderful travelers I have met on the tour My only problem was that the amount of money I paid for the tour through get your guide was much more expensive than the agency
We had an amazing tour with Adin and Sanin. The coffee workshop was amazing. The day was really well spent and at your own pace. Could't have asked for anything better.
