Start with pickup from your hotel in Sarajevo. Begin the journey towards the eastern region of Bosnia, taking in views of beautiful mountains and small villages throughout the journey.

What people are saying about Višegrad, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The fact that this tour isn't as popular as the others is what intrigued me to begin with. The scenery is outstanding. Andricgrad and Kurstendorf are fascinating projects and definitely worth visiting. The train ride is also a must-see, kind of like time traveling in the past to experience how people used to travel. Visegrad is a beautiful city and the bridge is sureal. The tour guide was as good as can be, friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and just an overall pleasant down to earth individual. I'm glad I booked and wish to bring some friends along next time!

Adi was my guide - he is excellent in all respects. The Bosnia Herzegovina history he narrated while en route to the railroad was superb. At all stops on he tour he always made the place interesting. The Sarkan Eight Railway is an engineering marvel. Well worth the tour. A great day.

Not anyone's fault, but the Mokra Gora train broke down half way. The train was full, however, so the (amazing, Kulin) driver could only get us standing seats. I believe it would have been the agency's duty to purchase for us seating tickets in advance

Our guide Ibrahim was very friendly and engaging. Visegrad was nice but the Sargan Railway was a little disappointing as most of the scenic views were obstructed by passing trees although the train do stop for you to take pictures.

We had a nice and interesting trip with a small group and a very dedicated tour guide!
