Whole day was brilliant. Our guide Eden was lovely and had a great sense of humour. Safe transportation, got through the borders very quickly. We stopped at Kravice falls first for 1hr 45mins and they were absolutely breath taking. Note there is a little break on the way for about 10 minutes at a cafe with great views so you can get out the mini van and stretch your legs. Then we went onto Mostar where we had roughly 3 hours to explore on our own, beautiful city it's like something out of a fairytale, very cheap too. Then we headed back to Dubrovnik where he drops you off at your hotel or as close as possible depending where you are staying. Overall I would definitely recommend this, we had a brilliant time! The only downside is I wish we could stay longer, as the time went by so fast, I felt like we were rushing. But that only means we need to go back and stay over one day. But it's a great way to get a little taste of Bosnia for a possible longer holiday there in the future.

This was an excellent tour! Luka was the perfect guide, coming from Mostar himself. I was overcome with emotion as we traveled through the country and learned about past and recent history. Luka answered all my questions and more. Highly highly recommend. Bosnia & Herzegovina is a must visit to anyone traveling in the Balkans.

Totally worth every penny! Amazing views throughout the whole drive to the sights.

Excellent guide - a lot of knowledge and would highly recommend

Comfortable bus and good guide. Enjoyed the trip very much.
