What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Medjugorje and Mostar Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Private Tour: Medjugorje and Mostar Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Get picked up from your hotel in Dubrovnik and then settle in for the cozy ride in the vehicle. Take in the jaw-dropping views of the Adriatic and the seaside villages as the van goes north of the city. After crossing the border into Bosnia and Herzegovina, stop in Neum, the only coastal town in Bosnia, to stretch your legs and to have a look inside the shops. 
As the journey continues along the attractive Neretva River, stop for a short while in the village of Počitelj for a walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed historical center. Halt in front of the Haji-Ali Mosque and take in its beauty. And don’t pass up Sahat-kula, a clock tower and fort towering above the town. 
Back in the van, relax and take in the views of rural Bosnia. The next stop: Medjurgorje. Ever since six children claimed they saw a vision of the Virgin Mary in 1981, the town has been an important pilgrimage site for Catholics around the world. Walk around the town with your private guide who will regale you with intriguing historical anecdotes about the town and its connection to spirituality. Take some free time to explore the town on your own and even attend a mass. 
Meet up with your private guide again and ride to Mostar, a town dominated by its 16th-century bridge. Mostar is actually a manipulation of ‘Stari Most,’ which means ‘Old Bridge.’ Walk the streets of the city, which is separated on one side of the bridge by Bosnian Muslims and the other side by Catholic Croatians. And don’t forget to watch the divers jump from the high bridge, which was destroyed in the wars of the 1990s and rebuilt in 2004, a symbol of the unity between the Muslims and Catholics. 
Stroll freely in the town on your own, checking out the mosques and churches and even sit down to eat a hearty lunch (at your own expense). 
The last stop on the exciting day trip is Tekija to take in the Turkish-style architecture and the natural springs of the Buna River. After that, sit back and enjoy the ride back to Dubrovnik.

This was a great trip, partly because our driver/guide was from Mostar, and partly because he was an awesome fun person! He took us to places not on the tour and had lots of tidbits of personal history. Make sure to climb Apparition Hill on your Medjugorje tour way worth the climb.

Absolutelu great day. We were able to accomplish far more than we could have in a bus tour. Our guide Dan showed us Mostar and Maedjugorje, as well as other towns and spectacular waterfalls. I would highly recommend this trip.

This tour was amazing! Viator uses local company Super Tours, and our tour guide Olga and our driver were both wonderful. Olga spoke fluent english, and was outgoing and informative. She knew a ton about the history of the region, and gave us a detailed explanation of the region and both the ancient and recent history. We skipped Medjugorge for more time in Pocitelj and Mostar and were glad we did. Pocitelj was very quaint and interesting. Mostar itself was stunningly beautiful. The bridge is amazing, and the old town market was colorful and fun. Lots of fun (and cheap, but well made) trinkets and souvenirs to buy. The borders between Bosnia and Croatia were no problem at all. We got traditional Turkish teas at lunch at a restaurant Labirint. We went for the traditional Bosnian grill and the local wine and it was absolutely delicious. With great views of the bridge and the mosque. I would highly recommend this tour (or any tour with this company) to anyone.
