What people are saying about Herzegovina-Neretva Canton

This trip is not be missed when you are in Bosnia and Hercegovina. When I booked this tour, I got the confirmation immediately and got very helpful and friendly advice with all the information about the tour, thanks to Asim! Our guide Mirza picked us up from the hotel and our adventure has started on time. We visited all these beautiful places, had great lunch in Mostar and heard all these stories which was very educational. Mirza is a great guide, very friendly and funny and he made sure that we see these places, climbing on the top with us in Pocitejl and waiting patiently for us while we were taking so many pictures:-) The tour is amazing and we would like to thank Mirza for this great day, without him the tour wouldn’t be the same.

On the tour to Mostar we had to cross some border crossings. Since it was low season when we were there, we only had to wait a few minutes each time. In the high season this is certainly completely different. The waterfalls were super beautiful. We were almost the only ones there too! The Stari Most and the old town are stunning. Our guide explained everything to us in English and also in German. There was a lot going on in Mostar, which was probably also due to the perfect weather. So great trip. Absolutely recommended for the budget. A tip: climb the minaret of the mosque in Moster. From there you have a magnificent view of the old town and the bridge!

2 adults and 1 child. Nice bus, good driver and interesting and nice guide Maria. Waterfalls and Mostar are amazing. Great recommendations from both guides for food and tours. Guided tour of Mostar with visit to Turkish house was exciting but we were very hungry so it felt a bit far.

We had the best time with our guide kenan, really nice to get to know a big part of Bosnia and Herzegovina with a friendly guide that showed really interesting places. Also very handy if you want to enjoy the entire day and at the same time get a transfer to Dubrovnik.

Ivan explains the most difficult historical contexts in a very interesting and entertaining way. Nicolas is a great bus driver who always makes you feel safe. Together the perfect team. Great. Thanks for the great day
