This was an enjoyable tour. GetYourGuide outsources to MEET BOSNIAN TOURS. The tour administrator, Hidaya was very helpful and accommodating. The guide Vildan was very informative and continuously engaged with the group. The driver Farq was also very engaged with the group even with his broken English. This tour is quite different than the Mostar tour, more forts, the waterfalls were a great background but really cannot beat the Kravic falls you see on Mostar tour. If you want waterfalls and only have one tour go on Mostar, where you can also swim. I highly recommend tours from this tour company, I went on the Mostar tour with them which was also well planned.

Ibrahim was amazing, made the tour very enjoyable with his knowledge and friendliness. He made sure that we got the most out of each stop and our entire day, the watermills were more beautiful than expected, and the sandwich was very nice!

Waterfall, watermill village, fortress ruins in Travnik and Jajce, the forests along the way, the friendliness of the guide who always paid attention to every guest.

Really great day, knowledgable and kind guide, Adis, that went the extra mile to accommodate our lovely group. Highly recommend!

What I liked most was the attention that our guide Samir Masnopita gave us
