A small well organized tour that delivered what it stated in the advertised schedule. The free time we had was enough to fully appreciate both the waterfalls and Mostar. Time also for coffee and comfort break in both directions. Border control at peak times could be a problem.Would definitely recommend this trip.
Mostar is beautiful -we're happy we took one of our days in Dubrovnik for this day trip! We were disappointed that the tour did not follow the itinerary in the description - we specifically chose this itinerary so that we would go to the waterfalls at the end of the day, as we wanted to swim after our full day of sightseeing - instead it was our first stop after the coffee break. We also did not stop in Neum for the coffee break on the way, but rather at a road-side hotel with no ambience. The Neum stop was at the end of the day and again, just at a road-side hotel - not picturesque for a seaside town. Pocitelj was interesting with wonderful stalls selling souvenirs, fruit and juices. Mostar was definitely the highlight!
This tour was perfect from the start. I was picked up in front of my Hotel. Our guide Ivana made the ride in the mini bus very interesting. Ivana told us about the history of Dubrovnik and Croatia as we travelled to the border. All the way during the ride she asked all the passangers is everything all right, do we need something, is the temperature in the mini bus OK. She and the driver Teddy really made our tour interesting and memorable. First place that we visited were Kravice waterfalls. They are just gorgeous. The falls here are amazing and the water very clear. You can swim in the crystal clean and beautiful green water. Our next stop was Počitelj. For such a small place, there are so many interesting and unique buildings to explore. The climb up to the fort was well worth it. After 20 minutes we arrived in Mostar.I really loved Mostar, oriental,different, great food and people. The best to see in one day out from Dubrovnik. Learned a lot about this region.
On the way back Teddy and Ivana told us that we will go on the little border near village Ravno where there is no traffic so we will not have to wait on the border. This was just perfect beacuse we stoped on the way in the old train station which is now family owned restaurant and vinery. They even gave me a glass of wine which was just perfect because I really like wine. Where ever I go I like to try domestic wines. This wine was just perfect and at the end I bought a bottle of wine for very reasonable price.
I can just say this excursions was perfect from the start to the end. Thank you Ivana and Teddy for a perfect day!
We really enjoyed this excursion. We were picked up from our accommodation by a very polite and friendly driver.
The Kravice waterfalls were spectacular. The walk down involved many steps but there are handrails. There was just enough free time to appreciate the falls, but we could have stayed a lot longer!
Then on to Mostar. We were dropped off a short stroll away and made our way to the bridge. The stop was around 2 and a half hours, which was plenty of time to have some lunch and refreshments.
A very enjoyable day trip!
