What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Sarajevo Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Private Tour: Sarajevo Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Start with a pickup from your central Dubrovnik hotel, and set out by luxury minivan to discover Bosnia and Herzegovina with your private guide. Just outside Dubrovnik, stop near Franjo Tugjman Bridge to enjoy its acclaimed views, and then continue your journey west to Neum -- Bosnia’s only coastal town – for a stroll around.

Pass through the UNESCO-listed town of Počitelj, admiring its oriental-style architecture, and then head into city of Mostar, looking out for its Ottoman-style Old Bridge. After roughly 1.5 hours, arrive at Jablanica and enjoy time at leisure here -- perhaps enjoying lunch (own expense).

In the early afternoon, arrive in beautiful Sarajevo – Bosnia’s capital city that boasts village-like charm and a rich history. Mosques built by the Ottoman Turks sit alongside buildings created by the Austro Hungarians, and the city is often referred to as a living history museum. Despite the relatively recent 1990s conflict, the city bears surprisingly few physical reminders of its war-torn past – a sign perhaps, of the city’s desire to move on and welcome visitors with open arms!

On a tour of this vibrant little city by minivan, your guide will explain some of Sarajevo’s complex yet fascinating past, while showing off its best sites. See Bascarsija Bazaar – an ancient trading place with artisan workshops – and various examples of Ottoman architecture around the city center. Look out for the famous Latin Bridge where the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, and see the Sarajevo Roses (flower-shaped craters in the pavements, filled with red cement) that serve as one of the few reminders of war in the city.

After your sightseeing tour, enjoy time at leisure in the town to see all its gems independently. Your guide will point you in the right direction for the best coffee shops, restaurants or bars. Return to Dubrovnik in the early evening, and finish right back at your hotel.

Our driver was Ivan, and he was awesome. The vehicle was very nice, his driving was safe and efficient, but most importantly, he had a detailed knowledge of the region's geography and history.

Our tour was amazing! It began with a great driver and a very knowledgeable guide in Dubrovnik. She was full of information/history of the entire area. When we got to Sarajevo we had a different guide show us around the city, he too was amazing. I would highly recommend this tour. He selected the perfect place for lunch which we saw later on the Travel Channel, amazing. Bosnia is beautiful and still recovering. I would love to go back and explore more, visit Mostar and tour more areas of Sarajevo.

This was the best tour I've been on! Our guide, Vlado, was fantastic! He was so funny and open. He helped to put the history of the area into perspective, and he gave us a good background on where we were. It was interesting to see Sarajevo and the drive was beautiful. I would strongly recommend this tour.

One of the best tours I have ever gone on. Marija our guide was great - very informative, superb sense of humor. I definitely recommend going up to Sarajevo - a unique and very interesting place. We easily did it in one day - although it is a very busy day. The driver was also fantastic - very good and the car was great too. I give it an A+!

This was a long! day. Tour should have started very early in the morning considering on how far we had to travel. We unfortunately got stuck in line at the border. This further delayed things by an hour. It was great to stop in Mostar for a quick tour and look. We drove directly to Sarajevo and met with the local tour. The tour was very good but it was fast as we wanted to get through things in order to hit the road to get home. Sarejevo really just gave us the downtown highlights. I think doing an overnight in Sarajevo would be better. Great to see, but the tour was just too rushed!

My tour to Sarejevo was wonderful. The two guides - one from Dubrovnik and the other in Sarejevo were very knowledgeable and had interesting stories to tell,. In particular my guide in Sarejevo was well versed in the history and restoration of Sarejevo. He was also very considerate of my need to rest occasionally and to walk a slower pace.
