Despite the guise Robert and us being unable to initially find each other ( directions could be updated ) we had a fabulous tour . Robert was amazing , very attentive and incredibly knowledgable and wanted to make sure we had the best trip we could. He lengthened the trip duration to enable us to view the most incredible sunset above Dubrovnik and even dropped us off at our hotel instead of the original pick up place to save my weary feet . This trip was made by Robert because of his level of information and interest . Such good value for money when the cable car on its own almost costs as much as this full trip and all you do is go up and down Mount Srd - we saw more than we would have done with the cable car and learned all the history too . Fantastic

It was a lovely experience indeed.Deena,our tour guide was very knowledgeable explaining everything about the tour. A liitle bit strict on the timebut it’s okey.Just bring some cash like kuna,euro,pounds or dollars because most of the shops esp for souvenirs don’t accept cards. We really enjoyed this tour. Highly recommendable to explore Mostar,Pocitelj & Medugorje. You can bring your own food & drinks if you want to save but their foods are cheaper than in Dubronik.

The guide Pero was incredible. His knowledge of every aspect amazed us. We were 4 (2 couples from same family). He attended to all our needs including making my hubby feel reassured due to his fear of heights. So professional. I would recommend this tour to anyone and you will be very lucky if you have Pero to escort you. Anna

Marco was great. Very friendly, he answered all our questions and told us a lot about the history of the country. Recommend.

Nice excursion. The super friendly guide and the extraordinary sites we met Super recommended
