Absolutely fantastic. Our guide and driver (I didn't get his name, the one with blonde/fair hair) was the best we've ever had on a day trip before! He was very friendly and talkative, and his knowledge about Bosnia and Herzegovina is immense, because he is from the country himself. He answered all of our questions, about the places we visited and more questions about the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The trip itself was amazing, the Kravica Waterfalls are beautiful, Mostar is a nice walk around. Pocitelj is a lovely stop too. We were also fortunate that we had time to go to Međugorje too. Lots of the reviews for tours like this complain about the amount of time in each location. I think we had the perfect amount everywhere - Pocitelj 20 mins, Medugorje 20-30 mins, Kravica 1hr, Mostar 3hrs. Also some people complain about the walk from the car park at Kravica to the falls, it's not a bad walk at all, just some steps. Wear proper footwear! We had a nice group of people.

This was such a fun day and very well organized! Our tour guide Luca was wonderful and funny. Pocitelj and Kravica Waterfalls were beautiful stops to incorporate along the way, and Mostar made for a spectacular highlight. The short tour when you arrive was very informative. My cousin and I ate at Restoran Kaldrma. We each got the Bosnian coffee which was to die for! We then shared the traditional platter which was filling and delicious. Finally, we walked around the shops and grabbed some to-go desserts from Caffe Lasta. From the outside it looks like a gelato stand, but if you go inside they sell homemade baklava, kadaif, and Turkish delight that you can't leave without trying! Though I wish we had maybe one extra hour to explore Mostar, the day was absolutely perfect.

We had such a fun day exploring more of Bosnia with our amazing guide Anel! He was very flexible with the day, making sure we spent the right amount of time at each place. He was clearly very proud of his country and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to his story’s and knowledge of the area. The lunch spot he recommended us was a wonderful spot with delicious food, a great view and friendly staff. This was the perfect way to see more of this beautiful country and I would highly recommend this tour.

Anel was very helpful and knowledgeable. I am very impressed with his knowledge of the history. Thank you Anel!

The trip was great. Very informative. Enjoyable. Relaxing. Well organised. 5 stars!
