What people are saying about Herzegovina

Overall the trip was great, our skipper was telling about the history on our way to Bosnia, its specialty, nice places to visit and interesting facts. The guided tour in Mostar was nice, and the audio visual played in the small museum was very interesting. Since I also make videos, 1.5hr at Kravice Waterfalls was not sufficient. It took us 4-5 hours to reach Kravice Waterfalls. Dont forget to carry your passport which is checked and stamped at border control (this was a bit of time taking) I still loved the trip.

A must-do excursion when passing through Dubrovnik. We don't always have the opportunity to go to Bosnia, and the 3 sites visited have an undeniable charm and complement each other very well. The guide in Mostar told us with great passion the history of his city. Mario, our driver, also shared his experience with us which helps us to understand the history of the region.

The guide and bus driver were excellent. What could be better was the information before the trip. We didn't get a good message where we were going to be picked up. First they said that they couldn't pick us up at the Hotel, and the day before they suddenly could pick us up in front of the Hotel. That was a bit confusing and stressed us out

Great tour and lovely guide! The waterfalls are beautiful and a must-see and Mostar is equally intriguing and insightful to experience.

Very nice day trip to Bosnia. The waterfall was very nice but the highlight was Mostar.
