Interesting tour - out of season so just 2 tourists a guide and a driver in a Mercedes which was great, just a shame about the weather. Driver and guide very knowledgable, giving much information on the region.
Wonderful to return since our visit in 1990 - the hostess on the bus was excellent. Only down side which wasn't Viator's fault - Mostar's building still suffer from the war - children sleeping/begging on the street - church in excellent shape though!!!!
Mostar was worth going to, especially the guide who was full of historical information about its past and present. I would recommend this full day tour.
We enjoyed the day, The main drawback was the wait of over an hour at the Bosnian border. The guide did not make any announcements as to what was going on.
Very pleasant three hours in a beautiful old town with a very knowledgeable guide, took a while to get there and back, but probably worth it rather than staying nearer to Mostar
Great value trip with excellent guide and driver. Real experience going through the borders. Mostar was very interesting and the information given by the local guide gave us an insight to the area. Ample free time to have lunch and soak up the atmosphere. Altogether a well worth while trip.
Very interesting trip and worth the long trip (we were out for around 11.5 hours in the end). Mostar itself can get very hot, so remember to take hat/suncream/water etc if you go in the summer!
The bus tour was way better than trying to do the same thing in a rent car, especially with border hassles. The commentary was good--would have liked some more engagement with the muslim community, since this is the only access to it from Dobrovnik
Overall, an excellent trip and, in particular, a superb guide in Mostar - Asim. He was so balanced about the events of 1991-95 and his talk was very informative and intelligent. The downside for us was the unnecessary stops in Neum on the way there and back - together with the time it took to cross the border, these stops added about 40-50 minutes each way. We would rather have had more time in the little village on the way to Mostar and come straight back to Dubrovnik. That said, if you travel to Dubrovnik, take the time to do this trip as it is a must!
Really enjoyed this trip. Very interesting and different. Loved the visit to the turkish house. Really nice guide.
Good trip, with an interesting road journey. Having said that, the numerous border crossings were tedious, although unavoidable. Worth doing to see Mostar - much more to it than the bridge.
I am glad to have joined this tour during my visit to Dubrovnik as i will probably not go to Bosnia Hercegovina on my own. The tour brings you to both Mostar and Pocitelj with a stopover at Neum (both ways), the town in the 13 km stretch of adriatic coast that Bosnia has. Pocitelj is a very small turkish village which is totally difficult from what you see in Croatia and it is more like a souvenir stopover. In Mostar, there is a 1 hour guided tour of the old town and a turkish home before having 2 hours of free time. Overall, it is a good tour which i recommend for those who will like to have a different sight of the Balkans. The free time in Mostar can be a bit longer since we do arrive back in Dubrovnik in the early evening.
Mostar itself beautiful especially bridge. Bus okay but seats not very comfy. Found the border procedures we had to go through painful and unnecessary.
We loved our trip to Mostar! Definately somewhere different to visit! The history of the place is very interesting and it was useful to have the walking tour. The only fault we would have with this trip is the long stops (30ish minutes) at the cafe on the way and way back. We felt we didn't need to stop for so long. But this didn't spoil the enjoyment and did give a chance for a stretch of legs!
A good trip, it was also good to have the special local guide in Mostar. A very helpful and friendly guide from Dubrovnik also.
Beautiful journey and informative guides. Worth a visit and I will return to Bosnia, a fascinating place. I was surprised just how many day trippers there were in Mostar.
A long day but worthwhile to experience a town with such recent history. Guided tour was somewhat chaotic with many tours vieing for same positions. Left tour early to get extra free time
Good tour. Mostar lovely village and very historic. Transport comfortable and on time. Tour Guide very pleasant and informative. Arrived in Mostar nearly 1 hour late due to hassle at Bosnian border check. Tour of Mostar hurried due to time loss which left little time for lunch or more sightseeing before we had to travel back to Dubrovnik. I recommend tour as border check out of Tour company's control.
An interesting day trip with very informative guides.Well worth doing.
Temperature was in the low 40's so walking around Mostar was hard work but a well organised trip.
We loved this beautiful city and learned a great deal. Everyone was really nice and we had a fun day!
Both the tour and local guides were very professional. They gave a good summary of the history and main sights of Bosnia and Herzegovina. There was enough time to explore Mostar on our own and savor the good local food.
Brilliant tour, great to be shown around by a local guide and learn more about a fascinating city.
Picked up from hotel about on time and taken by mini bus to consolidate with other trippers on coach outside Dubrovnik. Comfortable coach and guide gave running commentary. Arrived in Mostar by about 11.30 a.m. and it was hot and sunny which is usual. A local guide took us around the town and gave good information. Visited a Turkish house and a mosque and walked through the small local streets to the famous Old Bridge over the Neretva river. The bridge was destryed in the war in the 1990's but has been rebuilt as before. Passports are needed as you pass from Croatia to Bosnia but no visa. You can spend the local currency the marka and also Croatian kuna and Euros everywhere so no need to change money before hand. The shops give decent rates of exchange. It was a good trip and well worth the time and money.
An excellent outing to a very interesting place. A fantastically informed courier and a very good, unflappable driver whose skill avoided potential accidents on two occasions when encountering cars on the wrong side of the road! The local guide was also very interesting and the visits to the mosque and turkish house were something we would not have done unescorted.
