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.

The fact that this tour isn't as popular as the others is what intrigued me to begin with. The scenery is outstanding. Andricgrad and Kurstendorf are fascinating projects and definitely worth visiting. The train ride is also a must-see, kind of like time traveling in the past to experience how people used to travel. Visegrad is a beautiful city and the bridge is sureal. The tour guide was as good as can be, friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and just an overall pleasant down to earth individual. I'm glad I booked and wish to bring some friends along next time!

Definitely a Must do!!!! Really interesting and important to understand the context of the war. Although is really sad to witness the places of atrocities committed, is definitely important to reflect and learn from our mistakes as society. Our guide and driver were living here at the war, and listening to their stories was really touching and insightful.

Amer is an excellent guide. We really liked the journey and we think others should try it. Everything was great and there was no errors. We thank Amer for such a great journey!☺️ -Fausta & Raimonda

very interesting trip to understand the circumstances of the war
