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.

What a fascinating day this was. Both our guides all day and one local to Mostar were so full of knowledge about the history of the towns and the war in the nineties which is still having a huge effect on the country.

The first town we went to, Medjugorje, was a little strange for us. Although we are christians, we are not catholic and a town put on the map by an alleged sighting of the Virgin Mary and COMPLETELY filled with nothing but Catholic and Virgin Mary souvenirs, etc., was unexpected to say the least.

Then we went to Mostar - WOW! The old town is really quite something and to watch a short film and learn the history of the bridge and what happened here during the war was very moving and an eye opener for sure. The people here are happy but still much effected by what happened and it's really not in the past at all for them which is understandable. Bosnia as a whole, comes across as a stricken country in danger from a terrible political system, the lack of investment and industry. It seemed to us that the two universities and tourism keep Mostar alive and so going and seeing this historic town helps to keep it going.

From there we went to Pocitelj which is a tiny little place with a big history and it's very beautiful. It's really worth a walk around and up the hill but it can be slippery so take good shoes.

Overall we loved the tour and recommend it. See and get some understanding of the real Bosnia for a day, it's worth it.

Great trip where we got to learn a bit more about the history and politics of the country although it is still so confusing. We had a great bus driver Ivan and tour guide Ivana who were both very knowledgable and made the day interesting and fun. I highly recommend the tour.

A TRULY UNFORGETTABLE DAY! One of the best day trips I've ever taken. It's so great seeing the country get back on its feet after such a tumultuous, recent past. I was glad to take the trip, learn about their rich culture and spend what money I could in their economy. It was a beautiful country and the people were very friendly. Mostar is beautiful as is the drive there. A must-see for anyone with an extra day to spare in Dubrovnik.

This was a really good trip. Pros: the local guide was awesome. He had a lot of knowledge and shared with us the history of Mostar. Great amount of free time as well to explore. The cons: the first stop in a town to view a church was very touristy and just a line of cheesy tourist stores... I'm not sure why we stopped there. All in all I thought it was a wonderful trip - Mostar was the definite highlight! Great job.

We really enjoyed our tour to Mostar, it was our favourite of all the tours we booked. Our driver and guide Vid shared a wealth of knowledge about the area and really knew his facts. He had a wonderful personality and sense of humour and you could tell he really loved his job. The places we stopped were very interesting and a little different to other tours we had taken in Croatia. Our guide in Mostar, who was alive during the recent conflicts shared her knowledge of the events that took place from her heart and how the people have survived since. Thanks to both of these young people for a very interesting and enjoyable day.

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip, especially Mostar. Our local guide there was excellent, very knowledgeable and able to put over her enthusiasm for Mostar. We had lunch at a restaurant, recommended by our guide, in view of the bridge so were able to see a couple of jumpers. Perhaps a little longer in Medjugorje would have been nice but it was a Sunday with Mass underway. Definitely a trip I would recommend.

This was a wonderful tour. The local company did a great job taking care of all the details and border crossings. It was well paced and very interesting. We had a local guide for those who wanted more history and plenty of free time.
