What people are saying about Herzegovina

Our guide Dena was really helpful and an interesting teller, we enjoyed the time with her and received a lot of information. Medugorje does have some spirit, but you do have to mind the pickpocketing - we had an unpleasant small incident. Mostar is really beautiful - the old bridge, stone small streets, Mostar Ikari - people, who professionally jump in the 6-7 degrees Celsius water in Neretva river from the high bridge - became one of the attractions and definitely can not be missed. The tour itself is quite long - up to 10 hours even though we were a bit tired and decided not to stop in Pociteji. In general, the Tour is good and worth recommending.

First time I have booked a private trip, it was very much my trip I could choose where I went in the booked locations and how long I stayed there. My guide was fabulous I learnt so much more about the history of the places/countries I visited. It is a much more personal experience than any trip I’ve been on . Thank you for a very good day.

The tour is very good, Although I think it should be done better in summer or spring to find everything open, in winter While it is true there are not many people, most businesses (shops and restaurants) are closed as are the confessionals and I think there are only one mass a day.

We had an amazing tour with Adin and Sanin. The coffee workshop was amazing. The day was really well spent and at your own pace. Could't have asked for anything better.

The driver was very kind and the trip was amazing.
