What to expect


Our private day trip to Mostar & Pocitelj starts with a beautiful ride along the Adriatic coastal road. During the journey, you will witness an interesting sequence of borders between Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Once we enter Bosnia & Herzegovina, as we follow the river Neretva, we will arrive in Pocitelj.
Pocitelj is a settlement on a hillside above the river. Although it is like a town museum today, it played an important defensive role in the past.  
Different cultures have left their mark in Pocitelj, but the most noticeable legacy is from the Ottoman period.

An even greater Ottoman influence is visible in Mostar, which is half an hour's drive from Pocitelj.
Mostar is the capital of Herzegovina and a very popular day trip from Dubrovnik.  The symbol of Mostar is the Old Bridge which, together with other Mostar sights, will be the focus of your private walking tour*.

"We booked a day trip to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina and were so pleased to be able to book our guide, Julija, who had collected us at the airport. Julija speaks fantastic English, she’s so happy and helpful and attentive to our requirements to ensure we had the best day possible.
The journey was filled with really interesting local facts and history, the scenery was stunning too. Mostar was so interesting to walk around with the mixture of East meeting West, the Ottoman history and the rebuilt Old Bridge.
On the way home Julija said that we’d be passing Ston, a small town with an ancient wall, likened but much smaller than the Great Wall. Ston is also home to mussel and oyster beds and Julija said she may be able to arrange a trip to gather fresh oysters and drink local wine. We jumped at the chance and were so pleased to have this extra excursion. The captain of the boat, Mario, was so friendly and accommodating, he brought lemons from his garden and white wine made by his family. The oysters were incredible and I’m sure we’ll never have the like again! 
Julija made our day and made our holiday."
