  • On the way to Mostar we stopped off at Kravice waterfalls which were stunning and well worth the walk down to the bottom to see the full effect.

    From there we went to the ancient town of Mostar. You can still see some of the devastation caused by the wars. There is plenty of time to walk through the ancient town and over the Stari Most bridge. I imagine the cobbled stones can be a bit slippery in wet weather so be careful. There are a large number of touristy shops lining the paths which spoil the impact of the town.

    I enjoyed this 10 hour tour but without the visit to the waterfalls I would say there are better places to visit from Dubrovnik.

  • The guides were great ,very informative.It would have helped to have been told to wear sturdy shoes for walking around Mostar.The cobbles and the old bridge would be difficult for someone with limited mobility

  • 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 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.

  • There is nothing special for the waterfall. Don't pay for it and request more time on the old city.
    Food in the old city is really delicious, but they need a long time to prepare. That means you have no time to visit the old city! Be wise!

  • 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.
