Split to Dubrovnik via Mostar: Private Day Trip

6. Split to Dubrovnik via Mostar: Private Day Trip

Drive for 2 hours to reach Mostar. The world-famous Stari Most (Old Bridge) is Mostar's indisputable visual focus. Its pale stone arch magnificently throws back the golden glow of the sunset or the tasteful night-time floodlighting. The bridge's swooping stone arch was originally built between 1557 and 1566 on the orders of Suleyman the Magnificent. Situated on the Neretva River and the fifth-largest city in the country, Mostar was named after the bridge keepers (mostari) who guarded the Stari Most (Old Bridge) over the Neretva in medieval times. The Old Bridge, built by the Ottomans in the 16th century, is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's most visited landmarks, and is considered an exemplary piece of Islamic architecture in the Balkans. Wonder at the sites and take in the rich cultural history of this city.  Visit a family home in the village of Hardomilje and experience a way of life which has changed very little over the generations and is based on organically grown food and homemade specialties. The Trebižat river is the perfect setting for a relaxing boat ride in a traditional wooden boat. You’ll see nature’s best from the banks, and hear about the old customs and traditions while having a drink. The pristine waters of the Trebizat River are home to brown trout and crabs and during the summer months, you’re more than welcome to go for a swim.

Our early morning working tour was fabulous! Our tour guide was called Marcela who was welcoming, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We learnt lots about Croatian History and the best places to visit in the Old Town - which was helpful as we were at the start of our holiday so we could plan ahead on the recommendations! Doing the tour in the morning was great as the temperate was cool and there was no crowds! 100% would recommend.

Marko was the most exceptional guide we have ever had on our countless tours of dozens of European cities...he is simply the "best of the best". And the tour was phenomenal ... well organized, informative and a great introduction to Dubrovnik. It exceeded our very high expectations especially for the valued added low cost aspects.

Desa our guide was knowledgeable, informative and interesting in the history of Dubrovnik. The walls at sunset were beautiful and more manageable in the dissipating heat of the evening. Strongly recommended.

If you want a brief history of Dubrovnik and Croatia then this is the one for you. Informative but certainly not boring and very interesting and educational.

Desa was so knowledgeable and personable she made the tour so engaging and informative! I highly recommend
