    Your driver/guide will pick you up at the arranged address, make sure you have got a valid passport and briefly review the itinerary and suggest comfort stops and/or lunch breaks.
    A luxury sedan or minivan would be an ideal vehicle to comfortably, safely and swiftly take you across the Croatian border into Bosnia and Herzegovina, unlike buses, required to meet extensive border requirements.

    Your private local tour guide in Mostar will introduce you to Bosnia and Herzegovina and to their home town, one of the most picturesque places in Europe. The vibrant Bazaar, picturesque artisan shops, mosques and churches along the cobbled streets will lead you to the city’s landmark: the mesmerising Ottoman Old bridge.

    Accompanied by your guide, you will go down to the bank of the Neretva and take spectacular photos of the bridge and the rest of the UNESCO-protected city centre.

    After free time, the journey to Sarajevo continues alongside the Neretva and its stunningcanyon, meandering among some of the tallest Herzegovinian mountains. A little town of Jablanica, nestled by the river, is locally famous for its delicious lamb on the spit. If you agree, you can stop there and savour a delicious meal.

    The road will next take you through the north Herzegovinian mountains into Central Bosnia, a green, hilly Switzerland-like area.

    Upon arrival to Sarajevo, your local tour guide will take you through Baščaršija and the Sarajevo city centre.
    The 1.5-hour-long tour will introduce you to the famous Sebilj fountain, the Kazandžiluk street, the Imperial Mosque and the Gazi Husref Bey’s Mosque complex. An integral part of the tour includes account on the most recent history of the Bosnian capital and the dramatic years of the Bosnian War and the city’s endurance under the siege.
    And finally – food! Sarajevo is famous for its ćevapi, mini kebabs served in a flat bread with chopped onions and cream cheese. Expect your tour guide to passionately recommend the best ćevabdžinica in town.

    The free time will give you more opportunities to explore this fascinating city, buy authentic souvenirs and meet its friendly inhabitants.
    The journey back home will allow you to relax and share your impressions with your co-travellers or your driver/guide, and get more inspiration for the rest of your vacation in Croatia.


    Why book a private tour with Portal

    First of all, it is almost impossible to see so much of Bosnia and Herzegovina using public transportation. Renting a car might also be quite stressful, whereas our experienced driver/guides know well the potential pitfalls and speak the local language if any problem arises.

    We take care of organising the local guides, and make sure you have only the very best, licensed tour guides, fluent in English. Smaller vehicles, like sedans or passenger vans, have considerably less paperwork at the
    Bosnian border, unlike buses, who tend to form long lines at the customs. So, you’ll gain time.

    Next, our tour guide/driver might suggest visiting places that may not be listed at all, in order to make the best out of your visit. Finally, close to two thousand excellent reviews can assure you that you’re in good hands.
