The guide Mustafa is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking the three (3) of us through the area. The scenery was beautiful and I enjoyed very much. Overall the guide and a day tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that he deserves a special thanks and he does a great job.

I’m like a boss while this tour. The guy was so kind, comforting… anyway he was super nice guy. Blagaj, Počitelj, and Kravica Waterfall are worth to visit. I highly recommend them. The only thing you should do is to download WhatsApp and contact them. Thank you for your kindness.

Adnan was a very good, knowledgeable and experienced guide. We had a very enjoyable and full day with him; we are glad we reached you; we were able to see such long distances comfortably; thank you very much for everything...

Adnan was a WONDERFUL guide around 5 of the main sites (Mostar, Konjic, Blagaj Tekke, Pocitelj, Kravica Waterfalls) and I had such a splendid time! Incredible way to spend my short stay in Sarajevo, 10/10 🩷🩷

It was amazing, Mustafa is a great guide. Moreover, during the off-season, one could enjoy the places better. Thank you and I recommend.
