Meet Bosnia is the best tour company you will ever find! I have traveled a lot and I have never before experienced a company that will go the extra mile to make sure that you have a pleasant time, but Meet Bosnia will do this on all tours! The Jajce and Travnik medieval tour is a great combination of interesting history and beautiful nature. You get to explore ancient fortresses and see the most beautiful waterfall, and you get a good explanation of the history by your guide. I went on the Jajce and Travnik tour with driver Admir and guide Agan. Agan is a very friendly guide and he is very knowledgeable. Agan speaks excellent English and has a great sense of humor and along with professional driver Admir, getting you safely to the destinations, they make the car ride between stops a very pleasant and fun experience. I had the best time with them and the other tourists on this tour. They were very patient. I highly recommend Meet Bosnia and this tour! Do not miss out on this day trip!

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!

With a very knowledgeable guide, we visited the historic castles and fortresses of Bosnia. He told us about its history and about the places Vranduk, Tešanj and Maglaj. The whole trip had a friendly atmosphere and was a great experience for us.

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

A very successful excursion through the beautiful landscapes of eastern Bosnia and western Serbia including a short nostalgia train ride. Our guide Amer was extremely friendly and well informed.
