Overview

While in Dubrovnik, head to another country for the day to see the best of Bosnia and Herzegovina on a guided day trip. Stop in Neum, Bosnia’s only coastal town, and then continue on to UNESCO-protected Počitelj, which boasts beautiful historical sites. Later, head to Medjugorje, the place where, in 1981, six children saw an apparition of the Virgin Mary and has been one of the most popular spots for Catholic pilgrimage in the world. Finally, continue on to Mostar with its stunning bridge.
  • Day trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina from Dubrovnik
  • Visit the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pocitelj city center
  • Enjoy a walking tour of Medjugorje, an important pilgrimage location for the Catholic world
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.

A very long and tiring day but totally worthwhile. Tanya (guide) and Mick (driver) were great. There is a lot of time spent on the road for this trip so be prepared. First stop was in Neum (only coastal town in Bosnia and Herzegovina) for a few minutes for a toilet and coffee break. We weren't there long but it's an interesting place to see and conveniently timed on the journey. Next stop was Medjugorje which is a sacred holy Catholic pilgrimage site. You're there for about 40 minutes. As an athiest I had no interest in the area but used it to get another coffee and take a bathroom break. I'm sure it's great if you're religious but if you're not, you're not there for too long so it didn't really bother me. Next was the stunning Mostar. Glorious weather on the day unfortunately meant a sudden case of heat sickness for my girlfriend and we had to drop out of the tour with the local guide Iwana but thankfully after a while in the shade and some water, we were good to go exploring again. You get about 3 hours in total in Mostar which is great but you could easily spend all day there. It's beautiful and everything is far cheaper than in Dubrovnik. Pocitelj is the final 40 minute stop which has a cool tower and mosque to look at it you're willing to hike up a hill. Otherwise there's a few cafes and souvenir shops at the bottom to spend your time in. Overall it's a great day and I would highly recommend for anyone with a spare day in Dubrovnik. However, in hindsight if I were to do it again I would go on a full day trip just to Mostar.

Mostar is great. I personally wish I had paired it with the waterfalls as the religious pilgrimage site was not my style but the trip was well organized and on time. Kudos to the tour guide for getting us through the relentless border stops!
Good trip

We enjoyed this trip guide was good however we were meant to be travelling in luxury air conditioned coach but we traveled in a small van that seemed to be an old one with holes in roof for air condition very limited space so very uncomfortable for a long journey
Excellent tour driver, shame about the thunderstorm.

Our tour driver Anna was excellent. She was a very competent driver and communicator. It was unfortunate that a storm arrived just after we started our walking tour with the local guide and the tour was cut short. We weren't able to wander as much as we would have liked to but we did spend extra time enjoying the local food.
Mostar is worth visiting!

The guide had so much knowledge about Croatian and Bosnian history and relationships and thanks to her story telling skills, we didn’t get bored in the long bus ride. We stopped at Medjugorje, which was a bit boring for non Catholic people, but luckily it was only a short visit. We continued our trip to Mostar and had 1 hour local guide and 2hours free time. The local guide also had so much knowledge about the area and was nicely energetic. We loved Bosnian food and people there (the restaurant name was Sadrvan) :) Finally we ended up in Počitelj, which is a little village with not so many people. We enjoyed the Bosnian coffee there <3 In total, the trip was great and we can recommend the tour :) P.S The bus driver was so funny since he knew almost everyone on the road and honking/ waving to people all the time! Nice guy!
Really long ride in a mini bus

Mostar is indeed beautiful and lovely. Just that the journey was really long, wouldn't mind a coach but instead we got a mini bus. All cramped up and couldn't stretch much during the whole journey. Check with the tour beforehand if is a coach or mini bus.
good day out

Tour was very good, got to see a lot of Bosnia and Herzegovina country on the way to the 3 stops. Our guide Lydia was also giving a good commentary on the way. Počitelj Old Town was small (30mins stop) and looks beautiful as does the surrounding country side. Mostar (3hr stop) was also a lovely town to visit and the walking tour gave good details on the history. There are a lot of shops selling souvenirs very cheap, and if you want somewhere to eat I would recommend Urban Grill for a great view and a little away from the other restaurants (cross bridge and continue up left for ~200m) Medjugorje (45mins stop) was good to see as have heard about it, stop was short enough for what we wanted, but would need another 45min to climb up the apparition hill. The day is long, ~12hr, but well worth it. This could increase based on border crossings, we got through some very quickly. On the way back you also get a distance view of Kravice waterfall as you drive by.
Great day in Bosnia

Day trip was great. Guide Lydia was very good. Local guide in Mostar excellent as well. Border crossings went fairly well considering what I heard from previous reviews. I would have liked a bit longer in Medjegorje to climb apparation hill but you can only get so much in. Well worth it!
Great trip, lovely tour guides, enjoyed all of the stops

I thought this was a great trip overall - the bus was comfortable, I enjoyed all of the stops, and the highlight was the tour guides. The first stop - Medjugorje - is perhaps less interesting if you aren't Catholic, but I am not religious and still found it a fascinating place in terms of faith tourism. Mostar was definitely the highlight. If I were to go again I might look at a different tour that stops at the waterfalls instead of Medjugorje, but regardless was a fantastic trip! Thanks to the amazing tour guides who taught me so much about Croatia, and Bosnia Herzegovina.
Top day

Our guide shared personal stories and detailed history which was well explained and described without bias. He made the trip comfortable providing water and taking good care of our belongings and making sure we had umbrellas etc.his instructions for drop off and meeting were clear. The guide in Mostar was excellent as she described the history without bias. It was a very moving story and she showed us where to visit, shop and eat plus walked extra with us like a good friend. Both Isla and Mateo made us feel welcome and relaxed and engaged us in their country’s story with compassion objectively. This excursion is a must see location which gave us a clearer view of the Balkans. We appreciated a private tour when a group tour was not available and will recommend Super Tours to our friends in Australia. Thanks for a tip day ... it was fascinating and enjoyable. Plus Mateos mothers backs a was delicious!
