Whole day was brilliant. Our guide Eden was lovely and had a great sense of humour. Safe transportation, got through the borders very quickly. We stopped at Kravice falls first for 1hr 45mins and they were absolutely breath taking. Note there is a little break on the way for about 10 minutes at a cafe with great views so you can get out the mini van and stretch your legs. Then we went onto Mostar where we had roughly 3 hours to explore on our own, beautiful city it's like something out of a fairytale, very cheap too. Then we headed back to Dubrovnik where he drops you off at your hotel or as close as possible depending where you are staying. Overall I would definitely recommend this, we had a brilliant time! The only downside is I wish we could stay longer, as the time went by so fast, I felt like we were rushing. But that only means we need to go back and stay over one day. But it's a great way to get a little taste of Bosnia for a possible longer holiday there in the future.

Our tour guide Marko was awesome! He was raised in Mostar and was knowledgeable about the country, town and other information we asked. First off my bf and I went to the wrong bus stop to be picked up and he was very nice about our mistake. We went to mostar first bc he said most tours do kravice waterfall first and it will be less crowded. I am so glad he suggested that! Mostar was not that crowded until an hour before we left when all the tours started arriving. Mostar is a gorgeous town with a lot of cheap shopping! Most of the stuff being sold were things I have seen in Croatia and Greece and it was significantly cheaper there. The waterfall was also gorgeous. We arrived after Mostar and there wasn’t too many people there. We were able to swim in the water, lay out in the sun and drink some beers. My favorite part about this tour is he lets you wander off on your own & explore what you want to.

Stan was fantastic. He was very informative and what was really awesome is that he took back roads instead of the freeway so that we could see the beautiful countryside and see things along the way. He explained about history and landmarks that we passed as we went as well. We had plenty of time to visit and see the sights. He did a great job of explaining what we were going to be seeing and what to look out for. He also got us some fantastic baked goods from a friend at a local bakery. Very thoughtful! Finally, you can’t miss this tour. The history of Mostar as well as what the climate is now is so interesting. I would love to go back to Bosnia some day!! Highly recommend

It was an excellent trip although the wallet of my friends was stolen. Nice people at the police station. As she did not have money and more they took her back to meeting point.

Great tour and guide. Great tour operator. Very patient and accommodating prior and during the tour. Highly recommended.
