It was a lovely experience indeed.Deena,our tour guide was very knowledgeable explaining everything about the tour. A liitle bit strict on the timebut it’s okey.Just bring some cash like kuna,euro,pounds or dollars because most of the shops esp for souvenirs don’t accept cards. We really enjoyed this tour. Highly recommendable to explore Mostar,Pocitelj & Medugorje. You can bring your own food & drinks if you want to save but their foods are cheaper than in Dubronik.

a whole day to discover Bosnia and Herzegovina. first stop an hour at the Kravice waterfalls, then a 3 hour stop in the beautiful Mostar where we were free to shop and eat. finally our guide Gabriel gave us an extraordinary stop at the ruins of Pocitelj. outstanding tour

We had the best time with our guide kenan, really nice to get to know a big part of Bosnia and Herzegovina with a friendly guide that showed really interesting places. Also very handy if you want to enjoy the entire day and at the same time get a transfer to Dubrovnik.

Our collection was spot on...the guide itself Ivan knew alot of stuff about the places we were about to visit. Very educational experience and also beautiful places.

Everything was well organized. It was a lot of fun. Crossing the border crossings was also quick and uncomplicated.
