Join us for this fantastic, UNESCO-based trip and get to see Herzegovina attractions with our local guides. Mostar Tour is a must-do tour in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Mostar tour starts from our agency but can be arranged elsewhere if requested.
The first stop of the day tour is a short visit to the old part of Konjic. The symbol of Konjic is The Old Stone Bridge, which was connecting the banks of Neretva river for centuries.
It was since 1682. until WW2, when the German occupiers destroyed it, during the withdrawal of their troops. It was reconstructed as the original bridge in 2009, and has been on the list of national monuments of BiH since 2003.
Then we continue through some really amazing parts of Neretva river canyon, telling the unique stories of Herzegovina.
After Konjic we arrive at our next stop – Kravice waterfalls. Kravice waterfall, located on the Trebižat River is s a mini version of Niagara Falls, hidden in the Balkans.
Kravice waterfalls form a natural amphitheater 40 km southwest of the city of Mostar. For its amazing beauty and untouched nature, the state has protected it as a natural rarity. Its height is 25 meters. Moreover, Kravice waterfall is a popular swimming and picnic area.
Later on, we arrive at Pocitelj – the stepped Ottoman-era fortress village. It is a medieval and Ottoman-Mediterranean wonder of nature and architecture, a place like no other. Cupped in a steep rocky amphitheater, it’s a warren of stairways climbing between ramshackle stone-roofed houses and pomegranate bushes.
Towering over this dreamlike scene is the Kula (Fort of Počitelj), at 45m above sea level, it offers breathtaking views. In only one photo you will have Neretva River, impressive Hajji Alija’s mosque, the mekteb (Muslim primary school), the imaret (charitable kitchen), the medresa (Muslim high school), the hamam (public baths), the han (public inn) and sahat-kula (clock-tower).
On the other hand, the most dominant residential structure in the village is Gavrakanpetanović House. In that house there were thousands of artists and cultural actors from all over the world for the International Art Colony. Počitelj has a magical air that transcends time. It is a place just to wander, get lost in thoughts, and feel a profound sense of wonder and serenity.
Our next destination is Blagaj – a haven of peace and natural harmony. In Blagaj you will see a Tekke – the Dervish Monastery, built around 1520. The monastery is an important monument of the early Ottoman period in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
The dervishes have been using the monastery in order to perform their special rituals – Dhikr (praise to God). Blagaj Tekke is situated by the Spring of the river Buna, surrounded by beautiful mountains. In the silence of the Dervish house’s garden, cooled by the freshness of the wonderful river with the most spectacular view.
Therefore, you will understand why Blagaj was the focus of interest of historical personalities, Roman nobility, Ottoman viziers and kadis, Austro-Hungarian officers and many travelers searching for the freshness of the water, the warmth of the sun and blue sky.
So in the end, it’s time for Mostar tour from Sarajevo – the lovely experience in one of the most important pearls of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar is a city of stone on stone, historical, political, scientific and cultural center of Herzegovina. It lies at the foot of the slopes of Velez Mountain, in the Neretva River valley.
Mostar was one of the most destroyed cities during the war in Bosnia. But even today it has enough preserved architecture speaks to the rich cultural past of this city.
The most famous attraction in Mostar is the Old Bridge, built in 1566 according to plans of Hayruddin, the great Turkish builder of the 16th c. From 2005 it is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Above all, it’s the beating heart of the city, a strong iconic symbol of its history and one of the country’s most recognizable landmarks.
The bridge is 24m high, but in spite of that, you will frequently see members of the Mostar Diving Club dive off the bridge. The practice dates back to the time the bridge was built. We will also see the Crooked Bridge – the oldest arch bridge in Mostar.
In Mostar you will find Hamam – a Turkish bath. It is the only Turkish bath still existing in Mostar and one of the few remaining examples in the whole of Herzegovina. By visiting this location you will have the unique opportunity to take an immersive step “back in time,” engaging in an element of Mostar lifestyle that has been prevalent for centuries.
In addition, Mostar tour from Sarajevo will cover Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque, the second biggest mosque in Mostar. Its original color and wall decorations have been preserved until today. You can climb the mosque’s minaret, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the city and The Old Bridge.
Kujundžiluk – Old Bazzar, winds along a small, pretty, cobbled street, dating back to the middle of the 16th century. Therefore, you can find characteristic crafts shops and traditional restaurants in this area.
“When you spend a night in Mostar, it is not the sound that wakes you up in the morning, but- the light. I know this from my own experience. It was the light that welcomed me when I arrived, it followed me from the morning to the evening, and when I left, that light forever stayed in me as the main characteristic of my memories of Mostar…”
Ivo Andric, Nobel Prize winner
In conclusion, we will ride and walk through fascinating landscapes, interesting villages and cities, historical museums, we will go back to history and learn about Ottoman Empire, WW2, Tito’s Yugoslavia and taste delicious Bosnian food and enjoy the tradition. The day you will certainly never forget!
A really great tour that gave us a taste of what Bosnia is like. Well organized we visited all the stops, finishing at Kravice falls just before sunset and it looked beautiful. Hamsa our tour guide was informative and everything ran to time. So glad we booked this.
The brand Meet Bosnia tour are exceptional! We attended the free City tour then the paid Herzegovina tour which included seeing mostar alongside other beautiful cities/sites… no regrets! We highly recommend this tour. And a big shot out to our tour guide Amir, who went over and beyond to make our experience a memorable one😊🙏
Me and my friend went on the Herzegovina Tour on 9th Feb, our tour guide was Edin (and the driver Tiny)
The tour was fantastic, Edin was so knowledgeable and had an engaging and enthusiastic demeanour when conducting the tour.
The Kravice Waterfall was the highlight for me, it was unbelievably beautiful. We were the only tour group there which was a group of 6 of us so it felt very special.
The water was so clear, pictures can’t do it justice.
We stopped at a restaurant for lunch which was delicious and such a picturesque lunch spot.
Mostar old Town was a lovely end point for the tour.
The quiz on the way back to Sarajevo was a lovely bonus at the end, very light hearted but made you realise just how much you had learnt throughout the day.
We had discovered this agency just by walking around the city. The lady at the reception was super kind and ready for many questions we had. We opted for free walking tour (tip is welcome which we did:) the first day, cca 2 hrs, our guide Ahmed was very knowledgeable, he was ready to answer any question. The fact that helps is that he is a history student, he was able to translate all this facts to us in very interesting manner. Super informative.
The next day we opted to book a tour of Konjic, Kravica, Mostar, Blagaj and few more:) This is a full day trip. Nature was beautiful and considering it is winter time, we were lucky to have a beautifully sunny day.
Our guide was Kenan, we consider ourselves very lucky to have had him as our guide. He had a role of a driver, a tour guide and a friend. He took his time to give us a fantastic tour, again, very personalized, ready to answer any question.
Kravice falls was beautiful, Mostar a real jewel.
All in all, we plan to return to this beautiful city and for sure will take more tours with them. We can really recomend them.:)
We loved the entire experience. We are thankful that we passed by your office while it was still open so we could buy this tour. Yasmin, our tour guide, was fantastic. The cherry on top of the cake. We liked his good vibe and positive energy very much. He is very knowledgeable and combines the info with some fun comments here and there, being very respectful all the time. Such a nice guy. The tour was the perfect combination of the different atractions out of Sarajevo which gave us a general view of that part of the country. Our main goal was Mostar, but we ended up loving every stop we made along the route. My favorite ones: Mostar and Pocitelj, but Kravice Fall and Konjic took our breath away. Nice, clean, comfortable mini van. A delicious sandwich was handed out for breakfast. Perfect weather and, due to low season, no massive tourists around!. We joined a diverse group of tourists [Turkey, Italy, and us from Costa Rica],that ended up chatting and singing songs on the way back to Sarajevo as the sun was going down in the horizon. This was a glorious day. Thank you guys¡!!😍
