The driver and guide did a very good job. The guide provided interesting information regarding the region and it's history. He was very good at managing the groups time. I'm not sure if it would be posible but I think it would be better to reverse the schedule and visit Mostar first then do the swim after (when you're hot and tired).

Дуже сподобалася гід, чудова водійка. Гід у Мостарі був також дуже класним, все зрозуміло та чітко розповідав, навіть з невисоким рівнем англійської зрозуміло. Дуже емпатичний, порівняв підступний напад росії на Україну, з нападом Сербії на Боснію. У країні дуже смачна їжа, краєвиди - неймовірні

Amazing views. Great, funny, and kind guide. A small group allowed us to explore the city without delay. I recommend it to everyone it is something breathtaking!!! Great city guide of Mostar. He tells the fate of his country with great passion and pride. A big bravo to him for that!!
