Meet Bosnia is the best tour company you will ever find! I have traveled a lot and I have never before experienced a company that will go the extra mile to make sure that you have a pleasant time, but Meet Bosnia will do this on all tours! The Jajce and Travnik medieval tour is a great combination of interesting history and beautiful nature. You get to explore ancient fortresses and see the most beautiful waterfall, and you get a good explanation of the history by your guide. I went on the Jajce and Travnik tour with driver Admir and guide Agan. Agan is a very friendly guide and he is very knowledgeable. Agan speaks excellent English and has a great sense of humor and along with professional driver Admir, getting you safely to the destinations, they make the car ride between stops a very pleasant and fun experience. I had the best time with them and the other tourists on this tour. They were very patient. I highly recommend Meet Bosnia and this tour! Do not miss out on this day trip!

Everything about this trip is perfection, the place, the view, the history and i think there is no right words to describe this place. Our guide, Amer did a wonderful job. He’s full of knowledge, listen to him make you feel like everything just happened right before your eyes. Bosnia and Herzegovina definately has a special place in my heart

Go for the guide! The waterfalls and mills were beautiful, but hearing stories from our guide made this an amazing trip. Anam (I’m not sure if I spelled it correctly) worked for a peace building NGO for the region. We ended up getting back a little past 2100, but our group was okay staying out later and taking our time

It was a lovely tour, we saw very beautiful scenery, especially the waterfalls. Definitely worth the visit! Our tour guide was Emina Koso, she was helpful, very patient with us and knowledgeable of the history and culture of all different spots we visited.

The tour was amazing! It’s great to be close to the nature. Aid our tour guide is so nice, he shared us his umbrella coz it was raining during our trip. We really had a pleasant and very informative tour with Aid.
