This tour was fantastic. Very knowledgeable guides and funny driver. So much to see and do and learn. Some sad, some miraculous. The views from the tour bus on the way to our 3 destinations were spectacular.”

A very long but interesting day and a great opportunity to explore a hidden gem of a country.
Mostar is particularly quirky and beautiful and the bridge and old town is stunning.
Our guide was Nina and she was very good - organised and friendly - and the mini bus was comfortable.
I would definitely recommend this tour.”

Our guide met me at the hotel with the minibus and we set off for Bosnia. Our guide was really excellent and negotiated the three border crossings with aplomb. She provided just the right amount of commentary, giving insightful information about the history and culture of Croatia and Bosnia.
The first stop, the Falls of Kravice, exceeded my expectations. There are a small post office, shops and plentiful loos. For those who do not want to walk down to the falls, there is a tourist train which will carry you down.
At the falls, you can swim in the pool beneath the falls. The water was cold, but not unpleasant. Swimming is the best way to see the falls. It allows you to go up close to them, with an unobscured view.
The next stop on the trip is Mostar. This town deserves its UNESCO listing and I was fascinated to learn more about its history, ably assisted by the guide. Whilst there is a lot of driving on this trip, I think that it is worth the time in the minibus. I cannot praise the guide enough, she was very caring and knowledgeable, and dealt with members of the group who were consistently late to meeting points fairly and politely.
My only criticism would be the quality of the minibus and the microphone. The seats were not very comfortable and the microphone made it difficult to hear the guide, who had to resort to speaking from the middle of the bus.”

Suzana with Super Tours was phenomenal! She was composed and very organized and knowledgeable of the local culture and customs, which I really appreciated! She kept up with the group’s passports in an organized fashion, for all border crossings. She had over 35+ people to stay accountable for and she did it effortlessly. I hope to tour with her in the future.”

A very long and tiring day but totally worthwhile. Tanya (guide) and Mick (driver) were great.
There is a lot of time spent on the road for this trip so be prepared.
First stop was in Neum (only coastal town in Bosnia and Herzegovina) for a few minutes for a toilet and coffee break. We weren't there long but it's an interesting place to see and conveniently timed on the journey.
Next stop was Medjugorje which is a sacred holy Catholic pilgrimage site. You're there for about 40 minutes. As an athiest I had no interest in the area but used it to get another coffee and take a bathroom break. I'm sure it's great if you're religious but if you're not, you're not there for too long so it didn't really bother me.
Next was the stunning Mostar. Glorious weather on the day unfortunately meant a sudden case of heat sickness for my girlfriend and we had to drop out of the tour with the local guide Iwana but thankfully after a while in the shade and some water, we were good to go exploring again. You get about 3 hours in total in Mostar which is great but you could easily spend all day there. It's beautiful and everything is far cheaper than in Dubrovnik.
Pocitelj is the final 40 minute stop which has a cool tower and mosque to look at it you're willing to hike up a hill. Otherwise there's a few cafes and souvenir shops at the bottom to spend your time in.
Overall it's a great day and I would highly recommend for anyone with a spare day in Dubrovnik. However, in hindsight if I were to do it again I would go on a full day trip just to Mostar.”

Our guide shared personal stories and detailed history which was well explained and described without bias. He made the trip comfortable providing water and taking good care of our belongings and making sure we had umbrellas etc.his instructions for drop off and meeting were clear.
The guide in Mostar was excellent as she described the history without bias. It was a very moving story and she showed us where to visit, shop and eat plus walked extra with us like a good friend. Both Isla and Mateo made us feel welcome and relaxed and engaged us in their country’s story with compassion objectively.
This excursion is a must see location which gave us a clearer view of the Balkans.
We appreciated a private tour when a group tour was not available and will recommend Super Tours to our friends in Australia. Thanks for a tip day ... it was fascinating and enjoyable. Plus Mateos mothers backs a was delicious!”

I thought this was a great trip overall - the bus was comfortable, I enjoyed all of the stops, and the highlight was the tour guides. The first stop - Medjugorje - is perhaps less interesting if you aren't Catholic, but I am not religious and still found it a fascinating place in terms of faith tourism. Mostar was definitely the highlight. If I were to go again I might look at a different tour that stops at the waterfalls instead of Medjugorje, but regardless was a fantastic trip! Thanks to the amazing tour guides who taught me so much about Croatia, and Bosnia Herzegovina.”

Day trip was great. Guide Lydia was very good. Local guide in Mostar excellent as well. Border crossings went fairly well considering what I heard from previous reviews. I would have liked a bit longer in Medjegorje to climb apparation hill but you can only get so much in. Well worth it!”

We had an amazing time on the trip which lasted approximately 10 hours. Our driver was very prompt in picking us up from our hotel. He was also very friendly and easy to talk to. This tour incorporates a local tour guide when you get to the city/town of Mostar. Watch out, he tests you at the end to see if you’ve been listening to what he’s been saying. The people in general were very welcoming and friendly in all the three cities/town we visited as part of this tour. All in all, we would highly recommend it. It’s a must do if you come to Dubrovnik.”

We really enjoyed our trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina. There was a long drive to get there and we had to pass through three borders which could be a bit tedious, but of course the delays aren't the fault of the tour company. We also got on well with our driver, who we shared a strange link with!
Medjurgorje's main appeal is its religious aspect which isn't something I was particularly looking for. There are a lot of shops and stalls that put me in mind of Turkish markets, with cheap 'name brand' items and of course a lot of Catholic themed trinkets. We found it quite difficult to find food there, but Mostar is a much shorter drive than we anticipated so it's not necessary to get lunch there!
Mostar was lovely. As soon as we got off the bus, we were greeted by a tour guide who evidently had strong ties to Mostar. She took us on a trip through the old town and showed us a video of the bridge before, during and after the war in the early 1990s. We then had two free hours to wander through the city. We went into a restaurant that was recommended by the guide, and we enjoyed the baklava and coffee we got there. We also decided to climb the tower attached to the as yet unfinished church. It was approximately 3 to climb the tower and it's worth it. Be prepared for the bells though, I got a shock the first time they went off! You get a lovely panoramic view of Mostar from the tower, as it's higher than most buildings in that part of the city.
On our way back, the driver took us to Pocitelj which is a series of ruins, but which was the start of the Republic of Ragusa the precursor of Dubrovnik, back when it was a city-state. It was a beautiful little spot, with some interesting stalls selling trinkets and fruit.
It was a long day, but a very enjoyable and interesting day.”

One of our most memorable trips on our vacation to Dubrovnik. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a very beautiful country and the people are very friendly. The guide, who was entering college for a masters degree in engineering the following week, was extremely helpful and friendly. He was himself from Bosnia and was very knowledgeable about the society and life there. In Mostar, we had a local guide who was also excellent. It seemed unbelievable that this country had recently seen so much bloodshed and horror. It all was so peaceful and lovely. Amazing that the people can have so much hatred for others. But the country at present is lovely. The checkpoints took very little time and, with only 6 people, we had a very pleasant and personal tour. Highly recommended.”

Our driver and guide Vladamir was excellent
So knowledgeable, informative and free person
He went way out of his way to make the trip exactly what everyone wanted.
Disappointed in the local guide in Mostar, lovely young girl, learning her trade, but so much yet to learn.
I didn’t hear the information she sharded because she began to talk before everyone had gathered.
No where near the depth of knowledge Vlanamir shared
This however didn’t spoil our day and I’m sure she’ll improve with experience.”

We had a great day out. It's a very long day but we got so much crammed in and we saw and experienced lots. Our driver/guide Luka unsure on spelling was lovely. He was talkative and wanted to engage us in the areas we were going to and told us little bits of info on the drives between locations which was interesting. We spent our day travelling in a mini bus with a few other people, it was nice travelling in a smaller group but we also caught up with some other groups when we got to Mostar in Bosnia and had a walking tour of the city with a local guide. It was interesting to experience such different cultures in each place we went to, which was really interesting to compare to Dubrovnik too. Great day out, and we had lots of free time to do what we wanted to. Lots of walking and we got the most free time 3 hours in Mostar, and got between 30 mins - 1 hour at the other locations.”
