Private Tour: Medjugorje and Mostar Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Private Tour: Medjugorje and Mostar Day Trip from Dubrovnik

After pickup from your hotel, relax in a comfortable minivan and enjoy a comprehensive panoramic sightseeing tour of Dubrovnik before heading north out of the city. Admire views of the Adriatic Sea as you drive along the Croatia coast, and after crossing the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina, enjoy a break in Neum – Bosnia’s only coastal town. As you sightsee at leisure, browse the shops or grab a coffee at a local café.

Continue your journey along the picturesque Neretva River to the town of Počitelj. Enjoy a leisurely paced walking tour around its UNESCO World Heritage-listed center, and stop to look at historical landmarks like the Haji-Ali Mosque and Sahat-kula -- a clock tower fort on top of the hill above the town.

Hop back into your minivan and relax with views of the Bosnian countryside on the way to Medjugorje, an important Catholic pilgrimage site since 1981, when apparitions of the Virgin Mary were reported. Stroll around with your private guide, who will talk to you about history of this spiritual town, and then enjoy free time to explore independently, or perhaps attend a mass if you wish.

Your private day trip heads on to Mostar, another hugely important cultural and religious town in Bosnia. Admire Mostar's Old Bridge– the 16th-century bridge that was destroyed in the 1990s Bosnian war, but rebuilt to in 2004 – symbolizing unity between the town’s Muslims and Croats. Visit the Mosque of Mostar and the town’s famous Turkish House that shows a fascinating insight into Ottoman life. Enjoy free time for lunch at a local restaurant (own expense), before heading to Tekija – the last stop of your day.

On arrival in Tekija, see beautiful Turkish-style buildings and naturally formed springs in the Buna River. Then, sit back and relax, enjoying views of the Bosnian countryside on the way back to Dubrovnik.

Had a great private tour! Ivan was a super tour guide and driver! Would highly recommend taking a private tour. We were able to adjust the itinerary to our needs.

Absolutelu great day. We were able to accomplish far more than we could have in a bus tour. Our guide Dan showed us Mostar and Maedjugorje, as well as other towns and spectacular waterfalls. I would highly recommend this trip.

What a wonderful experience. Our Guide Vlado was tremendous. He went out of his way to share info and give us more than we expected. It was a highlight of our trip. Thanks very much for a fabulous day!

This tour was amazing! Viator uses local company Super Tours, and our tour guide Olga and our driver were both wonderful. Olga spoke fluent english, and was outgoing and informative. She knew a ton about the history of the region, and gave us a detailed explanation of the region and both the ancient and recent history. We skipped Medjugorge for more time in Pocitelj and Mostar and were glad we did. Pocitelj was very quaint and interesting. Mostar itself was stunningly beautiful. The bridge is amazing, and the old town market was colorful and fun. Lots of fun (and cheap, but well made) trinkets and souvenirs to buy. The borders between Bosnia and Croatia were no problem at all. We got traditional Turkish teas at lunch at a restaurant Labirint. We went for the traditional Bosnian grill and the local wine and it was absolutely delicious. With great views of the bridge and the mosque. I would highly recommend this tour (or any tour with this company) to anyone.

We had a great Spanish speaking guide Olga and a driver that I dont remember his name, but both very professionals in their work, it was a private tour for the four of us and since our main interest was going to Medugorje and had visited Mostar earlier she took us to other interesting places.

My wife and I had a greaet day trip to Mostar with our guide, Phillip. He was a Croatian native (Zagreb), engaging, and willing to share stories and insight into the many things to see and do in the area. The tour itself was fantastic. Pickup was right on time and we made a couple of interesting stops on the way to Mostar, including a quick stop after crossing into Bosnia the first time (Neum), and a stop in Počitelj (had about an hour to check it out). We were also provided with a different guide in Mostar who gave us about an hour long walking tour - his family is from Mostar and he grew up in the area. We enjoyed hearing his perspective on Mostar and Bosnia and would not hesitate to do the tour again. All in all, we had a great time and will book with Viator again in a heartbeat when the time comes.

Excellent Tour , Dont leave at the suggested time early in the morning . Delay by an hour and a half or so . We had less traffic and by the time we got to Medjugorje all the tour busses had left so there were only about 2 doz people there . So we totally avoided the crowds . Fantastic Tour Guide Great tour

4 star rating: Recommended June 2013

Pick up on the morning of the tour was prompt and hassle free. Great communication with tour company and excellent guide (Phillip). We did not want to tour Medjugorje and tour guide was flexible enough to take us to another destination (Pocitelj) instead. Guide provided a quick tour of Mostar before leaving us to have some personal time for a few hours. Great tour overall.
