What a day full of beautiful sights and humbling history! Our tour guide was fantastic. Highly recommended! I did this in June 2015 so I'm sorry I forgot his name as it is now Nov 2016. In any case, he showed us so much and even stopped at a place I requested that he was not familiar with it had a waterfall. Medjugorje is not much, but you are only there briefly. It would be particularly special for people with religious leanings. Mostar was great and it was interesting to see the Turkish influences. Make sure to go up to the tower. Everything else was just wonderful views. Thank you so much!
I loved Mostar- I wish the tour could be designed to stay at least an hour longer than just 3 hours. I bit dissapointed of Medjugorje - we just stopped at the commercial church area - too far from the revelation place. In general Im happy that I decided to go with Viator and discover Bosnia and other parts of Croatia. highly recommend it !
It was really interesting... and you learn a lot about their history
Great trip. Really well organised and enjoyable. Short stop of 40 minutes in Medjugorje, so pick a different trip if you want to see the place more. Mostar was a real highlight especially the guided tour which gave more insight into the conflict there. Loved every minute.
Excellent tour with really good guide Facundo. The group was small 20 and the tour was comprehensive. Free time to explore on our own was also great.
Amazing tour Mostar was amazing and Počitelj was an unexpected highlight, definitely recommend buying some fruit there.
This trip was excellent. The local guide at Mostar was very knowledgeable and informative. It was a very interesting and moving experience.
Day trip to Medjugorje and Mostar 26/08/2016.
Medjugorje and Mostar were interesting places to visit, rich in history and culture to explore.
Our driver, Mika was very courteous and friendly. He made sure everyone in the group felt comfortable and happy throughout the journey. He had very good knowledge, informative and helpful whenever there were questions about Croatia and the places we were about to visit.
I was also impressed with Ivana, the local tour guide in Mostar. Not only she gave us very detailed insight into the history and culture of the country, but also sharing the information with us in an engaging way and good sense of humor.
A happy customer and highly recommend this day trip!

Excellent trip. The guides, both on the bus and in the city, gave very good clear information without overloading us with facts. Pick up was on time and all arrangements were efficient.Very good coach driver.
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.
Five Star - Great trip in the rain. My 95th country visited - going for 100 in 2017.
Wonderful tour from Dubrovnik! Our coach was great- picked us up on time, gave interesting information during the trip. The minivans are the best- comfortable, small group only and the drive is extremely pleasant with many highlights! When in Dubrovnik- why not visit another country?! They take you to some of the most important Bosnian places, including Mostar- where time has literally stopped. If you are interested in Balkan history- definitely book this tour!
Would highly recommend this tour. Guide was very informative and her english was very good. Pickup from hotel was on time .
At this time of the year Weather is very hot so be prepared
Ivana was our guide when we got to Bosnia and she was very entertaining and gave a lot of background information. Our driver for the whole trip, Antonio was the same and great to talk to on the journey home in the car. Learnt a lot about the history of Bosnia and everyday life from Antonio. A must do!!!
