Our trip to Bosnia was excellent. Pick up and drop off was organized within a 5 min walk of our Airbnb. We went in a small shuttle bus and appreciated the small size of our tour group. Our driver and guide was awesome - he kept us on track and provided wonderful knowledge throughout the drive. This tour is really long with all the border crossings and time is limited in each place, but it’s a great way to be introduced to the diverse culture of Bosnia. Our guide in Mostar was just ok - he could have given more history instead of promoting local businesses. But we enjoyed our free time in the different locations and had an awesome day. Definitely bring enough cash in Euro or Kuna before leaving - everyone in our group seemed short by the end. Bosnia is cheaper than Dubrovnik though and worth experiencing if you want something different and to learn about a culturally rich destination.

if you are planning a short vacation, you should definitely plan a day in Montenegro! The bus ride, boat tour and the visit to the old town in Perast and Kotor show a lot of Montenegro. The boat trip should definitely be planned. The stops were enough to explore everything. Don't forget your euros, as they are the only means of payment. All in all a successful trip and absolutely recommendable!

Easy process to book and clear communication from beginning to end. Comfortable air conditioned bus. Organised tour leader and nice coffee stop. Perast, Lady of the Rock island and Kotor all great places but needed extra time on the island, only had 20 mins which was not enough time to visit the church properly. Cruise boat excellent and fantastic views, a must do.

Very good support, doing this excursion outside the high season is a good idea, it's pleasant. Ana and the driver were very friendly. It is a very well organized excursion. We had taken the boat tour and it is well worth it, I highly recommend it. We even had the chance to have a guide who spoke French for the visit of Kotor. I recommend this excursion.

Great trip. Quads were great, comfortable, easy to ride. Route was through a variety of terrains and great fun. Pick up and drop off seamless. Team were very helpful following an issue with my booking. Thank you all
