Kind of a long drive out (about 3 hours each way including border crossing), but with an expert driver and a guide who provided just enough information on the way. Pickup was a bit chaotic at the Pile Gate. Lots of tours picking up at the same time so you need to be aware - the destination is in the windshield and the name of the tour operator is on the door to the van. Mostar was worth the visit (imho) and the tour operator there was very entertaining and forthright about the troubles. It was quite “touristy” but the people were overall friendly.

This was an excellent tour and would definitely recommend. Guide was very informative and friendly. We stopped at Neum for a short break before heading to the border. We stopped at Kravice Waterfalls which were fabulous. Spent about an hour there before heading to Mostar. What a delightful place. The Stari Most Bridge was impressive and divers were waiting for tourists to pay up enough money before jumping into the river below. We also visited a Turkish House which was very interesting. A really great day.

When in Dubrovnik I would highly recommend taking this tour. The pickup and drop off was punctual, we were on a nice Mercedes mini-bus with good AC. The journey was long but comfortable and the time taken to cross the borders is dependent on the volume of traffic. We arrived in Mostar and had a tour of the small town which lasted about 45 minutes and was very informative which lots of interesting facts about the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina. We then had some spare time to get some food food here is much cheaper than Croatia or explore the town. Mostar is very beautiful with lots of character and the people are very friendly and welcoming. We then travelled to the waterfalls late in the afternoon, it is a long walk down some stairs so not great for people who struggle with mobility, but it is pretty once you get down there. They are nice to swim in and there is a small snack van by the water. Overall my partner and I age 23 and 22 had a great day and would highly recommend this tour!

Highly recommended. Thank you to Igor who was a wonderful guide and went out of his way to make our trip special. He told us about the history of Dubrovnik and Croatia as we travelled to the border. He was very knowledgeable and made our trip memorable. We really enjoyed visiting Mostar and the stop off at Kravice waterfall took our breath away. It is beautiful and does not have any large tourist crowds likes Piltvice Lakes does. We enjoyed a guided tour of Mostar before having around two hours free time to explore. Book this tour and you will not be disappointed. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

This tour was well organized and interesting. If you're interested in taking a quick swim at Kravice falls, you will have time if you head straight down. Many in my group did. Also, euros is the preferred currency when shopping in old town mostar, I didn't know this beforehand.

The waterfall on the way to Mostar was very nice. Our tour guide Nicoletta was very kind and experienced.

What can I say. Like going back in time. Great ancient looking town. Pity it saw so much destruction. Love to see this town grow as it deserves to. People seemed genuine enough and didn't bother the tourists too much.

Picked up at our hotel. There's a lot of driving 2.5 hours each way, but there are rest stops in between. The waterfalls are beautiful. The walking tour of Mostar is absolutely gorgeous. The arch bridge over the river is a money shot. The streets are full of vendors. The atmosphere was fun. You get a hour to eat lunch, if you want, and then another hour to walk around after lunch. If you been there done that in Dubrovnik, this is a great day trip.

Nice tour as we were a small group and it was so easy going. We went to spectacular locations including the waterfalls, a charming old town and a busy street full of culture and traditions.

The tour was great. Ivanna (our tour guide, Wed 17th Aug) was very friendly and helpful. When we missed our boat to Sipan, because of traffic, she helped to arrange a private speedboat to take us to the island. Nino collected us. He was very friendly and kind - he came to the rescue!! Thank you!

The tour was very well organised and incredibly interesting. Bosnia and Herzegovina has just a complex history and the tour guide explained it very clearly. It is also a beautiful place to visit especially to see the old bridge.

I really like this tour. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a most to see is you visit Dubrovnik. Mostar and its Old Bridge are amazing!!!

This tour was excellent and our guide Maria, the driver and our local guide in Mostar were brilliant. Maria was by far the most knowledgable guide we had on the 4 trips we did from Dubrovnik. Mostar is a great place to visit and take some good walking shoes!
• Submitted 18 Jul 2016
Maria the guide was a wealth of information. The local guide at Mostar was good but he got too touchy when a tourist asked him which was the Christian and the Muslim side. As tourists we were just curious, he got pissed off. Otherwise, Mostar is an amazing city. The trip was organized well.

We had a great time visiting Bosnia from Dubrovnik! It was definitely a highlight of our trip! Mostar was incredible, and very inexpensive. I would note that the ice cream was pretty spectacular too! We had a quick stop in Neum, but we couldn't do anything except go to the bathroom and take a quick pic overlooking the lake. Medjugorje was nice but also a short trip- stop in the church and peruse the countless shops selling Catholic items. Not enough time to make the hike up the mountain to the pilgrimage site. Great tour- very informative and very friendly. I would recommend to all!

The tour has been well organised and Mostar is a beautiful and interesting place to visit. The tour led by a local tour guide based in Mostar has been too short and finished in 25 minutes. We travelled all day on the bus from Dubrovnik and a little bit more information and history about Mostar may help.

I'd booked a few trips through viator and contacted each to confirm pick up times, this was the only one to not respond to me. The staff at my hotel called the tour group for me the day before the trip and I was given a pick up time however on the day they were about 10 mins late. Once all pick-ups were made, we travelled along the Croatian coast, admiring the beautiful views. Our tour guide talked about Croatian history throughout the trip and I found this very interesting. Note that there are 3 border controls to go through but these were quite quick. We stopped at Neum for about 15-20mins. Essentially this is just a service station so there's not much to do here. There is a hotel, for anyone that needs a coffee or toilet break, and a supermarket. I picked up some drinks and snacks from the supermarket and, as well as being very cheap, I was pleased that they accepted Croatian Kunas. We then travelled on to Kravice waterfalls and spent about an hour here which, unless you choose to swim in the lakes, was probably too long. Kravice had a couple of cafes but not much else. The lakes and waterfalls were very pretty but very crowded. Note that there is a cost 25 Croatian Kunas to enter the park. Then on to Mostar where sadly our tour seemed a bit disorganised. We were met in the new part of town by a local guide who started giving us a tour but after about 5 minutes we were met by a second guide who then took over from her without any explanation. The local guide led us to the old town and gave us a tour which lasted about 30 minutes but this felt quite rushed. After the guided tour we only had about 90 minutes free time in Mostar, not the 2.5 hours suggested in the tour description. Mostar itself was lovely, the old town was full of bustling markets, beautiful architecture and the famous bridge was stunning. The paths in the old town are all made from cobbles which are very slippy underfoot so take care! The items sold at the markets were very reasonably priced and accept Croatian Kunas - lots of designer knock-offs though. In the new town there is a church with a bell tower which you can go up and admire some stunning views of the city. There is an elevator which will take you almost to the top and for 24 Croatian Kunas I would recommend this. After our free time in Mostar we returned to Dubrovnik, without any stops along the way, and arrived back at our hotel at 7pm. Overall this was an enjoyable day out and I really enjoyed Mostar but I think the tour could do with some improvements.

We really enjoyed this trip to Mostar. This trip is a must do experience and one that you will remember. The pick up was on time and our tour guide on the coach Elena was extremely knowlegeable and passed on lots of information. Equally the guide in Mostar was excellent as well. The only let down was that the itinerary said that we would stop at Medjugorje where apparitions of the Virgin Mary had been witnessed. Unfortunately we only stopped to let off 4 passengers. It is a long day to only spend 2 and a half hours in Mostar, just enough time to see the old town and the famous bridge. A little more time in Mostar to enjoy the experience would be better. However, all in all it was a trip that was worth doing.

A very informative trip led by a historian tour guide. Although a bit saddened by the past history and recent political issue of Mostar, it is still a memorable trip. Could have been a better tour, if we could spend one more old touring the old city.
• Submitted 16 Oct 2016
The tour guide was brilliant, but due to unforeseen passport issues of another couple on the tour it turned into a rather long day. I would highly recommend this tour but be aware that compared to Dubrovnik, Mostar is quite a rough town to visit and does not feel as modern or as secure. However it is beautiful and I would recommend this tour as our driver and guide were brilliant.

A tranquil and beautiful place. Lovely bridges and cobblestone streets. The guide was helpful, and the local guide was very passionate, touching us with his thoughts about the war and his country.
