What people are saying about Herzegovina

The tour to Počitelj, Mostar, and Kravice waterfalls was very informative and Peter was a great guide, along with our guide in Mostar itself, Anna Maria. The bus was pleasant and the historical information Peter gave was very interesting and informative. The people and the sites in the little town of Počitelj and Mostar were great and so friendly. The food and sites in Mostar were unreal, and the people were so welcoming. The waterfalls in Kravice were truly a site to behold, and the facilities they offered there were great. I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t been to these places to go! And when going use this company as the service they provide is second to none!

Our guide was very good, Miran. His English was very good and he gave good tips for what we could do in our free time. The tour was very well organized. There was indeed air conditioning in the van and we were with a small group, as indicated. He was one of the only guides who dropped us on top of the castle of politeij, so we only had to step down. He always did his best so that we were in the heat/sun as little as possible. I would really recommend this tour.

This was a really interesting day trip, which I'd definitely recommend to other travellers. Miran was very knowledgeable, friendly and made me feel very welcome. 10 out of 10!

Great experience, very nice guide who provided really nice context to the history of Bosnia & Herzegovina

Very well filled day and to fulfill exactly what it promised.
