Fantastic day- Filip our driver was great. Medujore was a waste of time but all the other places were ace- really enjoyed the last unoffical stop off for some fresh fruit overlooking the Neruvatu valley- just stunning! Small group= more flexibility

My Small-Group tour to Bosnia and Herzegovina with Super Tours in Dubrovnik was very enjoyable indeed. Having only a small group made the experience all the more enjoyable and our driver Filip was very informative and helpful. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

The guide was nice and kind. Mostar is worth to visit. Good organized.

Great trip! Small group means flexibility, less delay at border crossings and faster loading of vehicle so you can be off. Mostar is stunning yet shelled buildings only 200 metres from historic bridge remind of a terrible European war in modern times. Minibus parks about 10 mins walk from main sights and the 2 hour visit was enough to see main sites and have a meal. Deserted town of Pocitelj is beautiful but sad. Medjugorje seemed artificial commercial to me but will be significant for some. Half hour break here seemed adequate. Short detour to Buna river source was spectacular.
Driver/guide did not speak great English but was helpful and passed around his notes for us to read. Air conditioning essential and very pleasant. Mostar is the hottest place in these parts - temp was 42C on our visit. Just looking at spectacular coastal/mountain scenery almost worth the fare alone!
Overall a great day out with lots of great scenery and interesting sites. Would not recommend trying this trip on your own with public transport due to border crossings.

Mostar is a very interesting city. Would have liked to have had more time there. There's not a lot to see in Medjgorje. We had good guides that provided a lot of interesting information.

We were happy with this tour. It was interesting to get a glimpse of the Bosnian countryside and to see some beautiful UNESCO sights.
on the advice of the driver and guide the group agreed to leave Medjugorje as soon as we arrived (which we were very pleased about as there's nothing to see but a huge traffic jam and shop after shop of souveneirs).
Even after skipping this though there was still not enough time in Mostar as we would have liked - it was all a bit rushed. But it was still enough to at least enjoy it.
The tour guide and driver were friendly and informative, though there's room for improvement in terms of communicating logistics, providing instructions, etc.
The small-group option for this tour was definately a good choice.

I am really glad to have done the tour to Mostar. The drive is not that pretty but given what the people of Bosnia and Mostar went through in the 1990's it was the least of my concerns. It was more out of respect and to support that community which motivated me to go. The local tour guide at Mostar was excellent as were our guides in the 14 seat air conditioned van. For me Medjugore was a rest stop so I got little out of this part of the tour but others may like hearing an open space church service. It is a long day (approx 10-11 hrs) but the 3+ hours in Mostar was worth it - there is no glitz or glamour in fact it looks quite tired but the community is making an effort and it also makes you realise how fortunate we in Australia are not to be subjected directly to war.

Excellent locations. One long day with a knowledgeable, friendly if slightly difficult to understand guide. Cool!

Good day trip, but a bit rushed. Could have done without the first comfort stop at Neum that took almost half an hour and used that time in Mostar instead. Pretty good overall though, thanks.

It was my first time on a small group tour and I was very happy with the guide, the quality of the mini-bus, my fellow travelers and the itinerary. The border crossings were not too lengthy. I would have preferred a bit longer in Medjugorje and to have had a guided tour of the buildings in Mostar. The journey, though long, was beautiful.

A good tour apart from ugly, money-swindling Medjugorje. It is a waste of time. People do a pilgrimage there - but sadly even the Vatican won't support the place. I hope that they take it off the itinerary because other than that the tour is very good. The driver was great but the tour guide was not very knowledgeable about the sights and had to read notes from a book. She was, however, very good at giving you an insight of what it was like to live through the most recent war so that balanced out my disappointment about her lack of knowledge about the sights.
