I've been on a number of tours from Viator, but this was by far the best experience I've ever had. We made it to the border quickly and since we beat the other tour buses, we were over the border in about 10 minutes. Our driver Bonham (?) was absolutely fabulous! I sometimes get a little nervous when they drive erratically but I was completely comfortable with his driving the entire time. I can't remember the guides name, but she was quite lovely and very informative. The first stop was Pocitelj which was a little village perched on the side of a hill. There's not much to see, but taking photos here is a must, and the 20 minute stop was just right. Once we reached Mostar we had a new guide named Selmir who was beyond amazing. Having a guide who lived through the war in Mostar was very informative and incredibly moving. The movie we watched (very short, about 5 minutes) on Mostar before, during and after the war made me tear up a little, as I noticed it did with some of the others in our group. I generally prefer to spend time on my own so I have more opportunity to photograph the places I visit, but this would not have been the same experience without his background on the war and how it affected this beautiful little town. We had about 2 1/2 hours of free time which was great. I explored the town a bit and was heartbroken to see some of the buildings that show clear signs of destruction from the war, however, on the positive side the town has rebuilt itself in a way that is almost unimaginable in the 18 years since the war. Overall I would say that there were no negatives about this trip, and that it is an absolute MUST!
Fantastic, well organised tour. Our guide on the comfortable coach gave us loads of interesting information on the complicated history of the recent war. The guide in Mostar was very good too. Mostar is very picturesque and we have some amazing photo's. I thoroughly recommend this trip.
This day long trip was well worth both time and money. Our guide was very knowledgeable and Mostar provided the rest.
A great trip and the guides were excellent, especially the local guide in Mostar.
Excellent tour. Our local guide in Mostar was especially helpful as she explained the tangled history of this city.
Incredible experience! The city of Mostar is a "must" visit! Still so many remnants of the war, but beautiful city and such beautiful people! The tour guide was brilliant ... both on the bus and then the local tour guide. Definitely a place I will go back to visit and stay this time when I have more time
Excellent value, great tour guides. All up, an exceptional day trip!
fantastic trip. we all enjoyed it. the local guide was excellent and very knowledgable. we could have done with staying a little longer in Mostar as we did not get much time to eat lunch and have a look around the town.
Our guide Ida was excellent. She made sure all the tour members had their questions answered. We like her a lot. The local guide in Mostar was also very good but we do not remember her name.
We enjoyed the trip very much. It was well organised and the guides were prepared and very informative. The guide in Mostar gave us lots of insights about the city and its history, very emotional and worth it.
Mostar is truly a beautiful little town in Bosnia and Hercegovina, and the tour was perfectly organized in time.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wishing to discover a little bit of Bosnia but can't afford more than a day of holidays. We were picked up in front of the hotel early in the morning (call the agency the day before to know the exact time) and greeted by a lovely guide. She was really nice and gave a lot of information about the area and Bosnia during the 3 hour drive to Mostar. There are a couple of stops on the way so the journey does not seem too long. One of them was in a small hilly village in Bosnia definitely worth the 20 minutes there. In Mostar we had a local guide that gave us a tour of the old town in about 1.30 hour (very nice and friendly guide too). We then had about 2 hours of free time to do some shopping and have lunch which was just right (i would not have minded to stay another hour but we had three hours journey back awaiting for us so it was understandable). For lunch I would recommend Restoran Sadrvan very close to the bridge (nice meal and good service). Make sure you have your passports with you as you will be crossing many borders during the trip and take some sun cream + a hat as it gets super hot in Mostar (40° on the day we were there). Highly recommended tour at a good price.
I loved it!!!! Great guides, lots of info, well organised. Mostar is STUNNING!!!! The only thing I didnt like is that we drove for 1 hour to then stop for half an hour break so that the driver can have a cooked breakfast... I thought it was quite strange...
The whole day was very well organised with a perfect amount of time allowed for each activity - although if it had been cooler we could probably have coped with a longer tour around Mostar itself. The tour guide on the coach offered a constant stream of interesting facts about the surroundings and the area's historical background (both recent and ancient) during the journey. His command of both English and French was impressive. The Mostar tour leader was also very informative and battled bravely against the intense heat (39 degrees C on the day we visited). The visit to the old Turkish house was fascinating. A beautiful old town and we found the souvenir shops irresistible as well!
Fantastic trip, tour guides on the coach and in Mostar were both excellent!
Very interesting trip. The effects of the war are still evident. Excellent local guide. Th best trip of the three we took.
Mostar is an amazing city, highly recommend this trip. The only negatives were the overloaded tourist shops located near the bridge. But the local people have to survive..
Really good tour. The guide, Ida, was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of information along the journey. We had a brief stop for photos at Pocitelj to see a traditional Bosnian village, and this was interesting, especially the hammam. At Mostar, Ida handed over to a local guide for a walking tour round the old town. Highlights were the old Turkish House, two Mosques, and of course the Stari Most bridge - complete with divers. There was some free time, but I felt we could have done with maybe another half hour to explore the old market. I would strongly recommend this tour.
I didn't know there were so many borders to cross on one road! That said, in spite of the weather, we had an amazing trip. A long day, with knowledgeable guides (Petra) on the bus, didn't catch name of guide in Mostar). Sad history, which may be being capitalised uamazing countryside.
The local Bosniak tour guide, Armina, was very nice. Very beautiful city. One of the must see in the world.
Excellent day trip with a great combination of a professional and friendly guided tour of Mostar as well as with ample "free" time to wander the bazaar and streets of Mostar, or simply have lunch and soak up the atmosphere in this awesome medieval town.
From pickup to drop off, the transport, the guide and the border crossing, the tour and organisation was very professionally run - couldnt ask for more.
A fantastic highlight in our holiday - highly recommended.
