This tour was a very good chance to see a bit of Bosnia and to learn about the history and culture of this country in a very comfortable way. The guide and the driver were excellent! They made my experience enjoyable. Despite of my late booking the night before, the Viator agent and the tour organizers made arrangements to pick me up at my hotel. The weather wasn’t the best (I took the tour on November 6th) but because it was out of the high season, we didn’t waste time due to traffic and border checks.”

Loved our trip to Plitvice Lakes. Our tour guide was friendly and full of information, and our driver was awesome too. Definitely recommend.”

A fabulous mix of nature and city life. The guide around Mostar was excellent. Be prepared for 3 border crossings there and back, but this doesn't detract from the day.”

My friends and I went on this day trip with Select Dubrovnik on 23 Oct. I was very happy with their prompt responses when arranging hotel pick up. The minibus (new, comfy and good airconditioning) arrived on time and we had no issues when crossing the three borders. Many thanks and kudos to our guide and driver for their good service. As I had a good experience with this day trip, i booked another day trip with Select Dubrovnik to Montenegro 2 days later. If you only have time for one day trip from Dubrovnik, I recommend Mostar over Montenegro as it's more interesting.”

This is a a quick tour of Mostar and Kravice falls. The guide is good in explaining the importance of the bridge, the little details about the Turkish House. A little background on Bosnian life. The ravages of the last war and so on. Kravice Falls was refreshing and very pretty. It would have been nice to take a swim, but the water is very cold. I want to also mention the tour operator, as they were gracious enough to allow us to reschedule our tour at the last minute. We had a wonderful time on this tour.”

We had a brilliant tour. Petra was very welcoming, friendly and funny. Petra and crunch were our tour operators. Crunch was the driver. He drove very safely and they made sure to wait on everyone so that no one was left behind.”

Mostar was a very interesting and different little town, although it was a lot more touristy than we expected. We enjoyed learning about all the history of this region, and we wished that the tour guide would speak more on the way back! This is a long day spent mostly in the bus, so that is something to consider. With the 3 border crossings, we didn't get home until 7:30pm or so.”

Our guide Tiana was excellent, professional and charming. The vehicle was comfortable, perfect size group.
The tour of Mostar was very good. The walk up to the bridge is reminiscent of a Turkish bazaar. An excellent experience. Our guide in the town was very good.”

We were transported in a mini van. Andrea was our tour guide, she was excellent! Mostar is nice, but not enough time. Kravice falls was ok.”

Great trip. Friendly and very informative guide. Good to have a local guide at Mostar. Comfortable minibus and the border crossings were straightforward. Plenty of free time. Booking the tour was easy using Viator and good communication on the pick up time and location.”

Be prepared for a long but amazing day! Andrea from Dubrovnik Select was a wonderful guide - very friendly and knowledgeable! Long day with border crossings (which can't control) but so worth it to see a glimpse of the beautiful Bosnian countryside and experience a tiny bit of Mostar!”

Tip - the guide said Mostar reaches 50° in July/August, so if you dont like heat, skip this tour in those months. We had 30°.
This day trip was great in a smaller bus with only 19 guests. The border crossings went smoothly. Bosnia and Herzegovina were lovely, visiting waterfalls and Mostar. The guide was very informative. We got back at 6pm - 11 hour day.”

I would do this trip again. Over and over to be honest. The driver and the lady on the tour bus were awesome and moved us through the borders quickly. We were given ample time both at Kravice and in Mostar. I wish that Kravice was after Mostar to be honest because it was SO hot that the dip after would have been really useful. Also, the local tour guide in Mostar was awesome I believe his name was Alica. He was funny and informative and got through the information quickly so we could all go venture independently. I would do this trip again!”

We were picked up next to our doorsteps before 8 o’clock and the vehicle was quite comfy and convenient. We we’re so lucky with all the border controls in the morning and in the afternoon since we didn’t spend so much time during inspections. We visited Kravice Falls and Old city of Mostar and I must say, it was all breathtaking and worth every penny you spend in the trip. Our tour guide (Doris) was excellent and very entertaining during our trip. This is a must do in case you have a day to spare while visiting Dubrovnik. We did the day tour to Montenegro too.. it was brilliant!”

Fantastic day out, picked up on time in the morning, guide was pleasant and knowledgeable, the waterfalls are beautiful but for me Mostar was the favourite, it can be a bit precarious walking on the cobblestones so you need to take care and the bridge is slippery but I felt this all added to the charm, it's just lovely walking past all the colourful little shops and stalls, we climbed the 100 or so steps to the top of a mosque for an amazing view of the bridges,
It's a great day out, Again vehicle a little cramped for the distance, but would still do this trip again.”

Went with my missus to Mostar and Kravice tour. Our guide, driver and local guide at Mostar were friendly and helpful. We were lucky with the border crossings as it did not take too long. But this can take many hours.
Shouldve had more time at both places, but we knew this wouldn't be possible based on reviews and program.
Booking was easy and they kept in touch. We will be using this again for another trip at another time.”

The whole tour from start to finish was excellent. We received communication prior to our tour date as to where we were staying to arrange pickup and drop off back at our apartment. Our tour guide Petra was fantastic, she had a great bubbly personality and her extensive knowledge on history of Croatia was excellent. With a good hour and a half spent at the Kravice Waterfall, which was a sight to behold, as it was just simply beautiful. It was enough time to get all those important photos. From there we went to Mostar who we then met our tour guide for the day, he too was fantastic with is knowledge, stories and great sense of humour. I would highly recommend anyone to book this tour as it was a fantastic experience from start to end, thank you Petra! Also a shout out to the driver, who go us there and back safely. He took us a short cut back to avoid the queues at the border.”

Couldn't fault this trip, extremely knowledgeable, informative and friendly tour guide (Doris?) At the borders it did take some time as expected but totally out of anyone's control although our guide was great and got us through as fast as she was able! This is a long day though so if sitting on a coach for a long time isn't your idea of fun then best to avoid! I'm glad I booked the small minibus for this tour. It really is very interesting, the waterfalls are not to be missed and an hour spent there was enough time, the driver and guide went to pay for our tickets to enable us all to go straight down. Mostar was extremely interesting where we also had a tour guide show us around the town, and the remenants from the war are very evident which this relatively poor country has been unable to fully rebuild.
All in all an extremely interesting trip, with a great tour guide, highly recommended, although just be aware of the borders 😊”

We had a great day on this trip. Our guide was very informative and funny, and made the long ride really enjoyable. They expertly navigated all the numerous border crossings in very little time, and got us back on the van just before a rainstorm descended. Mostar and Kravice were both stunning, and the food and shopping in Mostar nice and cheap.”

Great tour! The falls were beautiful and I didn't know you could swim there, but you can. There are several restaurants at the bottom, but we just dipped our feet for a spell.
The tour of Mostar was great too. Our guide in Mostar, Armina, was easily helpful and walked slowly, watched out for us, shared historical knowledge, answered questions, and recommended restaurants. Really great.
Our ride there and back was made better by 'Sir John', the driver who really worried hard to make our day flow smoothly, and Tiana, who was full of fascinating information. She shared food names, leaders, cultural history and more. It was a great tour and we enjoyed it so much we booked again with this same company.”

Very well run tour. Great hosts, tour guide full of interesting information. Mostar itself is a very interesting place and definitely worth a visit!”

Stunning! This was my favourite part of our holiday in Croatia. We also did a Montenegro day trip which was great, but this was on another level! Cannot recommend it enough.
When booking, we saw only hotel pick up points in Dubrovnik itself, so selected one of these, however, the tour operator messaged us to confirm that we could actually be picked up directly outside our accommodation in Mlini which was fantastic. The minibus was comfortable and aircon worked well - there were about 16 of us and did not feel too cramped at all!
Our tour guide Maria was really knowledgable about all the history of the Balkans and made the journey enjoyable with her humour and non-textbook knowledge.
The first stop of the day was Neum - a town with the country's only access to the Adriatic sea - there were stunning views and chance to take photos while having a drink.
After, we spent about 1hr20 at the waterfalls which were beautiful - we arrived at a good time before all the coach loads of tourists which meant we could easily swim or sit at the cafe.
Finally, we headed Mostar where we had a guided tour which lasted about 40 minutes and then were taken by the guide to the Turkish House. This was interesting if you've not seen the traditional oriental style before.
We then had about 1hr 30 to explore the little old town by ourselves. The guides recommended traditional food to try in any of the many cafes and restaurants. Very tasty and the locals were so friendly. We paid only 13 euros for 2 people to have a large lunch. In fact, everything is very cheap here so save space for shopping here instead of Dubrovnik! They accepted Bosnian Convertible Marks, Croatian Kuna or Euros.
Wish we had more time here, but means we will have to return! Thank you for the experience.”
