The tour group was very small, just 5 passengers plus the driver, who also was the guide. The small number allowed us to get to know each other as well as gain insight into Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was a long day of touring, but it went by quickly. The driver actually gave us an option of seeing Kravice Falls or Medjugorje. He dropped me and one other passenger off at the falls, and took the other three to the pilgrimage site. Both our driver/guide and the tour guide in Mostar were very informative.

The trip was so good! The organisers were super accommodating with pick ups and on time. We didn’t have any trouble getting through the borders. You go first to the waterfalls which a beautiful I think entry to that was 80kunas then we drove to Mostar. The walking tour there was ok. You go to another small town on your way back. Throughout the drive the driver is telling you all about the areas you are driving through which was great as we learnt so much

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.

We took the early morning city walls tour hosted by Michaela, the tour was really interesting and Michaela was very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject which made it all the more enjoyable for us. We definately recommend this tour to other travellers as you get to see parts of the old town that as a tourist you may miss and the quieter city makes it a more enjoyable and intimate experience.

We enjoyed the trip and Peter was so nice answering all our questions. He is highly recommended for this kind of Tour
