The day trip from Split to Dubrovnik was a joy. Dubrovnik is a gorgeous place, which can easily get overcrowded, due to its small size (the Old Town). Even in mid September, it was hot. The Old Town can be enjoyed from the city walls, but this requires a good shape, since it is quite a hike. The cable car ride is very much worth it also. The view from the mountain is amazing. The road trip from Split is also beautiful, especially the second part, as the Dubrovnik area looks amazing. I found the guided tour part too long (1 hour), as a lot of information is available and can be read by those interested. After that I had to run from one place to another in the remaining 3 hours, and I had not enough time left to enjoy a proper lunch, all the more that most places were crowded. Overall, given the context, the trip with Gray Lines was excellent, well organized, in A/C minivans (participants were split in 2 smaller groups). Border crossing went smoothly.
The tour group was very small, just 5 passengers plus the driver, who also was the guide. The small number allowed us to get to know each other as well as gain insight into Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was a long day of touring, but it went by quickly. The driver actually gave us an option of seeing Kravice Falls or Medjugorje. He dropped me and one other passenger off at the falls, and took the other three to the pilgrimage site. Both our driver/guide and the tour guide in Mostar were very informative.
Our early morning working tour was fabulous! Our tour guide was called Marcela who was welcoming, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We learnt lots about Croatian History and the best places to visit in the Old Town - which was helpful as we were at the start of our holiday so we could plan ahead on the recommendations! Doing the tour in the morning was great as the temperate was cool and there was no crowds! 100% would recommend.
We took the early morning city walls tour hosted by Michaela, the tour was really interesting and Michaela was very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject which made it all the more enjoyable for us. We definately recommend this tour to other travellers as you get to see parts of the old town that as a tourist you may miss and the quieter city makes it a more enjoyable and intimate experience.
The trip was excellent. Kotor and our guides were wonderful. However I was disappointed that no one was required to wear Masks on the bus.
