What You Can Expect

Bosnia and Herzegovina Day Trip Including Medjugorje and Mostar

Small-Group Bosnia and Herzegovina Day Trip: Medjugorje

Get the most out of your time on the southern Dalmatian Coast by booking this full-day trip to see the highlights of neighboring country, Bosnia and Herzegovina. After getting picked up at your hotel and meeting your guide, enjoy the trip north of the city, passing through rustic seaside villages until you get to the border (don’t forget your passport!). Stop in the town of Neum, Bosnia’s only seaside town and take a moment to stretch your legs and browse in the shops of this border town. 

Then carry on inland, stopping in Počitelj, a UNESCO-protected town. Take a stroll around town, and learn about its history as you stop to admire the historical structures of Haji-Ali Mosque and Sahat-kula, a silo-shaped fort on top of the hill above the town.

Drink in the views of the Bosnian countryside as the air-conditioned coach snakes its way toward Medjugorje. Once in the town, hop off the bus for a closer look at this spiritually important town. It all started in 1981 when six children claimed they’d been visited by the Virgin Mary. And ever since then, Medjugorje has been an important stop on the Catholic pilgrimage trail. Take some free time here to explore the town and even attend a church service, if you wish.

Then journey on to Mostar, a historical and culturally significant Balkan town, most known for its jaw-dropping beautiful bridge, connecting the Muslim to the Catholic sides of town. Stroll the streets of the town and take some time to witnesses the daredevils diving off of the bridge. 
Head back to Dubrovnik and continue enjoying the views of the countryside until you’re dropped back off at your hotel.

this trip was excellent, our driver was very friendly and our tour guide Anna kept us informed all the way. When we arrived in Mostar we had a walking guide round the town pointing out all the things that had happened to Mostar and all the hard work to to build it all up again. We would highly recomend this tour.

This was a brilliant trip our tour guide on Ana and our guide in Mostar were both brilliant. Mostar is a really beautiful, lots of lovely little stalls to buy things from in a gorgeous setting with fantastic buildings. The drive through the countryside as we travelled between places was also really lovely. It was a great country to visit, everyone there was really friendly.

We were collected from our Hotel on time by a very good driver / guide. As there were only 8 on the mini bus it made it a much more enjoyable trip.
The Medjugorge part of the day was very commercialised and a little tacky to be honest.
Mostar, the reason for our booking was excellent, our guide a young lady who had grown up in Mostar at the time of the war gave an excellent insight into what had happened only a few years ago, and how it has been rebuilt and transformed.
The only downside was the rain that fell made further exploring difficult and so we shall return one day. Highly recommended.

The car was very comfortable and air conditioned and the driver and guide were very pleasant and friendly throughout the day. We were given lots of information about the places we visited and their history that was really interesting and not something that I previously knew much about. Mostar is a beautiful place, however the streets in the town are quite bumpy and slippery so I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unsteady on their feet. The local guide was very informative and directed us to a viewing of a short film showing the area before, during and after the war in the early 1990's, which makes the restoration and current city even more amazing. There is local currency but shops and restaurants will take euros and Croatian kuna and convert prices for you. The local people are extremely polite and pleasant. It would have been nice to spend a longer time there. The other places we visited had a focal point. One place had fantastic views but you had to climb quite slippery steps to see them. There is a good viewpoint part of the way up if you don't want to go the up the full 700 steps. Medjugorje has a wonderfully peaceful church which looks fairly simple until you go around the side and back to see the huge area set up for outdoor services. The loudspeaker system used means that the services can be heard throughout the surrounding area as well as the church. The focus of the majority of shops in the area is the religious aspect. All in all this was a really enjoyable and worthwhile trip.
