This trip was the highlight of our holiday, we were in a small mini bust with 6 others. Marco was our driver and guide, his hometown was Mostar. We not only saw some wonderful scenery but we also learned so much of the history and way of life in Bosnia. The border crossings were seamless. High recommend taking the time to visit the Genocide museum. Would have liked less time at the waterfalls as they were OK, and more time in Mostar, the town is beautiful and steeped in history. Felt like we still had lots more to explore there

Excellent tour! Made even better by the small group that went with me. That makes a huge difference to me. We all meshed so well. Our driver Luka was also very good. Couldnt have asked for more.

We had a great day traveling to Mostar and Medjugorje. Our host did an amazing job telling us about the area and the people of Bosnia. We were given plenty of time to see the sites.
