A full day with adult sons. The driver Cerry, again enjoys visitors to his country is knowledgeable and sincere. Mostar a few hours here. The local guidelines in the city and again willing to share hers and the town's history. Wonderful old town full of colour. Shame we went on a Sunday the Catholic side of the town was closed. Visit to Medjugorgie a Catholic holy site Cerry was the guide. Full of reverence and respect. He gave people plenty of time to pay respects and guide them through the local customs. Overall another worthwhile day trip.

The guide who was with the transport and the guide in Mostar itself were both good at telling about things in an exciting way. We had both time with the guide and could walk around ourselves, which was really nice.

Like any excursion organized by get your guide, this one was also excellent. Extremely professional and kind guides, very interesting tour, absolutely enjoyable day!

Very nice guides. I just think it should be available in other languages like Spanish or Portuguese.

Great day out , well organised tour , the highlight was the walking tour in Mostar.
