SMALL GROUP Mostar, Pocitelj & Blagaj Tekija Tour

4. SMALL GROUP Mostar, Pocitelj & Blagaj Tekija Tour

In 1996, Počitelj was added to the list of the world’s 100 most endangered cultural heritage sites, by the World Monuments Watch – so definitely worth a visit. Your tour includes a 45 minute walk of this fortified town which contains a few scattered homes and cafes, a beautiful mosque, a tower and a citadel, surrounded by the remains of a city wall. Then you're off to the Blagaj Tekija which was built around 1520, with elements of Ottoman and Mediterranean style architecture. It is a national monument. Blagaj Tekke is a monastery that was built for the Dervish cults and lets you make it come alive for you - a fascinating stop! Mostar is famous for the impressive Ottoman–style bridge spanning the Neretva river which was destroyed during the war in Bosnia and Hertzegovina but subsequently rebuilt. There are still poignant reminders of the legacy of that war in the street art and damaged buildings to be found around the city, but you will also be impressed by the wonderful spirit of local people and its dramatic beauty. The buzz of the local bazaar offers a great shopping opportunity and you might be lucky enough to witness daredevil diving from the bridge during the season. There are shopping and eating opportunities throughout!!

Our trip to Bosnia was excellent. Pick up and drop off was organized within a 5 min walk of our Airbnb. We went in a small shuttle bus and appreciated the small size of our tour group. Our driver and guide was awesome - he kept us on track and provided wonderful knowledge throughout the drive. This tour is really long with all the border crossings and time is limited in each place, but it’s a great way to be introduced to the diverse culture of Bosnia. Our guide in Mostar was just ok - he could have given more history instead of promoting local businesses. But we enjoyed our free time in the different locations and had an awesome day. Definitely bring enough cash in Euro or Kuna before leaving - everyone in our group seemed short by the end. Bosnia is cheaper than Dubrovnik though and worth experiencing if you want something different and to learn about a culturally rich destination.

The driver and guide did a very good job. The guide provided interesting information regarding the region and it's history. He was very good at managing the groups time. I'm not sure if it would be posible but I think it would be better to reverse the schedule and visit Mostar first then do the swim after (when you're hot and tired).

This tour is very well run. Tour guide Ivan is amazing at his job and very knowledgable. I stays with you all day to answer any questions. The driver Nikola is an excellent driver and made me feel safe on the roads. 5 stars to them. It was a very memorable day. I will never forget it so thank you!

Wonderful trip well organised. Our guide Ivan told us about history of Dubrovnik and other places while we were driven to the borders and then Kravice Waterfalls and Mostar. There was a local guide awaiting to take us on the tour in Mostar and talk about history of the town.

Excellent experience! The Guide Ivan was extremely kind with the group and he has a good knowledge about the history of the region. Comfortable vehicle and well organized tour.
