Au départ de Dubrovnik, offrez-vous une excursion d'une journée dans l'un des sites les plus sacrés, paisibles et spirituels d'Europe : Medjugorje. Situé dans les montagnes vertes de la Bosnie Herzégovine, Medjugorje accueille de nombreux pèlerins qui s'y rendent pour trouver la foi et la paix dans cette ville unique. Vous profiterez d'une visite guidée de la ville et de la colline de l'apparition, où vous pourrez assister à une messe dans la superbe église St Jean. Profitez de votre temps libre pour explorer la ville à votre gré et vous restaurer dans un café local.
It is a long drive there, but the site is definitely worth it. One thing I wish I knew is that the climb to apparition hill is quite rocky, and there is no advice in the tour description to bring good hiking shoes. We showed up in sundresses and sandals, and looked a bit out of place trying to make the climb! Also our town guide was very friendly but I'm not sure how knowledgeable he was given that I knew a lot more information than he did at times.
I will not recommend this tour to friends and relatives. We went to Croatia mostly because we wanted to visit Medjugorje. We were so disappointed that we got there late and we almost didn't catch the 10am mass. That was the primary purpose of this trip. The organizers should have anticipated the border traffic. As it was, we had to wait for some people and we got delayed. Then the first stop was too long. The guide gave us 20 minutes for coffee and toilet stop which was unnecessary.
Our time in Mejuggorje itself was great. We loved the knowledgeable guide and the activities at Medjugorie. once we got there. Our problem was with the logistics of the tour and "Elite" ,the transportation provider. When you book a tour of this nature, you are paying for convenience and expertise. We were told that our fee included transfer to and from our hotel door. This did not happen. We were told that this tour did not include a pick up where we we're staying, so we walked 20 minutes to their office for pick up, as we were instructed. When the tour left for Medjugorje, they drove RIGHT PAST the "Botel Dalmatia" where we were staying! The same thing happened on the return trip. We went right past the place we we were staying, and dropped EVERY OTHER PASSENGER off directly to their hotels all over the Dubrovnik area. We watched as the bus criss-crossed in every direction, at times very close to where we needed to be, and yet we waited 45 MINUTES, until we were finally dropped off at the bus terminal. In addition, it was stressed that we needed to arrive 15 minutes before the tour left because the tour started on time, so we honoured these instructions. The tour did not leave on time as we waited 10 minutes for late arriving passengers. We also had to pick up other passengers en route off, the highway, which added more time to our journey. A stop for coffee and a bathroom break added another 20 minutes to the excursion( it could have easily been 10 minutes long).We ended up being late for mass as a result. Our tour guide stressed that the border crossing into Bosnia could cause delays and make our arrival time "unpredictable" ,but there was no problem with the crossing, and was not the reason why we were late. They were the reason. The reality is this: We could have organized this trip on our own, with greater efficiency, at half the cost. We thought were paying for their convenience and expertise, but "Elite" failed miserably at both.
My family of 4 (2 teenagers) very much enjoyed our tour of Medjugorje. Our guide, Nicolina, was great. She narrated on the bus while we drove between Dubrovnik and Medjugorje. She was experienced and real, not canned and boring. We not only learned a lot about Medjugorje, but also about Croatia ... the history and culture. We recommend this tour!
