Ismet was an excellent guide — knowledgeable, personable, and professional. This felt like a relaxed day, and yet we saw so many things, with my favourite being the extraordinary painted Ottoman mosque at the end (in Travnik). We also saw a great deal of beautiful scenery, and the stops were well timed. If you’re going to be in Sarajevo for a few days, I would definitely recommend taking this tour to see a bit more of what makes Bosnia a beautiful place.

Rosa was knowledgeable and friendly, and was a fantastic guide. She shared many interesting facts about Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the city of Mostar. I am so glad I booked this day trip and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you Rosa!
