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 such as Haji-Ali Mosque and Sahat-kula. 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
  • Discover Mostar's Old Bridge as well as its multicultural heritage monuments, like the Mosque of Mostar and the Turkish House
  • 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.

We enjoyed the tour completely. It was an educational trip in that we learned a lot about there area and the people. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about Mostar and surrounding areas.

We had an amazing time on the trip which lasted approximately 10 hours. Our driver was very prompt in picking us up from our hotel. He was also very friendly and easy to talk to. This tour incorporates a local tour guide when you get to the city/town of Mostar. Watch out, he tests you at the end to see if you’ve been listening to what he’s been saying. The people in general were very welcoming and friendly in all the three cities/town we visited as part of this tour. All in all, we would highly recommend it. It’s a must do if you come to Dubrovnik.

My guide Lina and driver Mike was the best. I got to know everything about the place and Lina suggested us a very good restaurant for lunch. This is indeed one of the best trip ever!!!

Mostar was extremely cool and very beautiful. Bosnia is an interesting country and definitely contrasts from Croatia, so it's worth visiting for a day if you have the time. Počitelj was really beautiful, too. Medjugorje was cool to see but I think it wasn't very interesting given how far out of the way it was from Mostar. Nonetheless, it's always nice to see something new. The van you travel in is not at all air-conditioned very well, and is quite small, so keep that in mind if you are heat-sensitive, easily get dehydrated, or don't travel well in tight spaces. Especially keep that in mind if you book this tour in the heat of August.

We really enjoyed our trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina. There was a long drive to get there and we had to pass through three borders which could be a bit tedious, but of course the delays aren't the fault of the tour company. We also got on well with our driver, who we shared a strange link with!

Medjurgorje's main appeal is its religious aspect which isn't something I was particularly looking for. There are a lot of shops and stalls that put me in mind of Turkish markets, with cheap 'name brand' items and of course a lot of Catholic themed trinkets. We found it quite difficult to find food there, but Mostar is a much shorter drive than we anticipated so it's not necessary to get lunch there!

Mostar was lovely. As soon as we got off the bus, we were greeted by a tour guide who evidently had strong ties to Mostar. She took us on a trip through the old town and showed us a video of the bridge before, during and after the war in the early 1990s. We then had two free hours to wander through the city. We went into a restaurant that was recommended by the guide, and we enjoyed the baklava and coffee we got there. We also decided to climb the tower attached to the as yet unfinished church. It was approximately 3 to climb the tower and it's worth it. Be prepared for the bells though, I got a shock the first time they went off! You get a lovely panoramic view of Mostar from the tower, as it's higher than most buildings in that part of the city.

On our way back, the driver took us to Pocitelj which is a series of ruins, but which was the start of the Republic of Ragusa the precursor of Dubrovnik, back when it was a city-state. It was a beautiful little spot, with some interesting stalls selling trinkets and fruit.

It was a long day, but a very enjoyable and interesting day.
