I want send a big thank you to Gabriel and Amrel our guide in Bosnia Hercegovina. Both tremendous kind and warm hearted as my son fell and injured him self they looked after us as their own family. They took us to hospital and sorted my son out and ensured we got back on the bus. Few tips for you if you book this tour. Time at waterfalls is a bit tight so make choice if u need to bring ur swimming gear on not before you go. Next, take out enough cash before u depart as card is hardly accepted in Bosnia Hercegovina. Again for the tour itself, it was a great day out with loads to see and experience. Mostar is amazing and I am afraid I did not get to experience it in full. I am sure I a will be back and use the same tour.

The communication with info bosnia tours worked perfectly. Irfan was punctual, friendly and engaging. He picked us up at our airbnb in Dubrovnik and dropped us off at out exact location in sarajevo. He accommodated very well to what we wanted to do and adjusted the plan accordingly to maximise our experience during the day-trip. He explained the history very well and was a good conversationalist. The ride was smooth and the car was spacious, clean and quiet. Tip for the water fall stop: come already changed in swimming clothes if you do plan to get in the water to save time on the changing cabinets queue.

This was the most fantastic tour with Emina Koso! Emina tailored the tour, shared her personal experiences of growing up in the siege of Sarajevo and insights into Bosnia’s current political situation, was warm and friendly and so professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to everyone! Thank you Emina, I hope to come back to Bosnia & Herzegovina again soon!

It was amazing, but ensure to check the weather, wear comfy clothes, and be ready to walk for some distance. Kamal, the advisor, was amiable and provided comprehensive details and information about each site. I highly recommend it. Even the agency's customer service was very accommodating and delivered outstanding service.

We had a lovely time visiting all the beautiful towns on the way to Mostar from Sarajevo. Info Bosnia tours were very helpful and accommodating to our requests, our trip was upgraded to a private tour free of charge. Our tour guide Kerim was very knowledgeable and helpful. Would definitely recommend this superb tour!
