A nice glimpse of Mostar and overall a good introduction day trip to Herzegovina. We had Ivana as lead tour guide and another local guide at Mostar. They both were very knowledgeable and accommodating even with a big group. Since we had two destinations, my recommendation to everyone who are looking to join in the future is to manage your expectations (shopping and eating) especially when in Mostar. We spent 3 hours in Mostar (including 1 hour with the local guide), leaving us 2 more hours to explore around. Personally, we would prefer an additional 1 hour. After Mostar, off we go to the beautiful Kravica waterfall. It’s nice if you bring your swimming gears and take a deep in the waters after the hot afternoon. Overall, a nice little experience, thank you.

This was an amazing experience! A very full day with lots to do and lots to see! Petar, our guide, was excellent. He told a lots of facts with humour. The local guide in Mostar was equally great. The beauty of the places visited with the addition of the history details made it a very moving experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and do not hesitate to highly recommend it.

We had a great day traveling to Mostar and Medjugorje. Our host did an amazing job telling us about the area and the people of Bosnia. We were given plenty of time to see the sites.

It takes about 1hour free time at Kravice waterfall, 2hrs free time at Mostar town. Overall trip is good!

Beautiful country, so interesting and steeped in history. Highly recommend this tour
