Should you book the Discover Herzegovina Day Tour from Mostar: Kravice Waterfalls, Blagaj, Počitelj? Yes!

If you have followed us for a while, you know that we recently fell in love with tours to save time, money, and effort.

Hence it should not come as a surprise that we recommend the Discover Herzegovina Day Tour from Mostar: Kravice Waterfalls, Blagaj, Pocitelj by Mostar Travel & Tours.

What might surprise you is to learn that in all honesty, that was the best tour we did on our whole Balkans trip. Normally, we are more than happy to use day trips for convenience. On this tour, our tour guide Esmer made the experience so much better than that!

Discover Herzegovina Tour – Our Personal Review

We absolutely loved this tour! We went in expecting to get easy access to the three highlights of the area:

  • Kravice Waterfalls
  • Blagaj
  • Počitelj

What we got was so much more.

Firstly, we loved the three stops that weren’t the reason for our booking:

  • Mostar Skywalk
  • Buna Channel
  • Mostar War Museum

Secondly, we absolutely loved our guide. Esmer was super professional and friendly. He explained so much about everything – from his personal story to the history of the country, from the best picture spots to the best places to eat. Additionally, he was super hospitable. It was super windy at the skywalk so Esmer invited us for a coffee to give his explanations in the warmth.

All of Esmer’s explanations made the drives (which were not very long to begin with) super interesting. In between his commentary, we listened to different styles of Bosnian music.

We had enough time at each and every stop – be it to take photos, have a snack, or even swim at the Kravice Waterfalls.

We think this tour was a full 5/5 – and if you know us, you know that we are:

A) A bit picky.

B) Honest if we didn’t like something.

We just liked everything about this tour…

Is the Discover Herzegovina Tour Worth it?

Absolutely! The value for money is amazing, even if you don’t take into account the amazing guide and just treat it as a shuttle.

You cannot reach the Kraivce waterfalls by public transport. The best you can do is take a bus to Ljubuski and a taxi from there.

Blagaj and Pocitelj are serviced by public transport from Mostar but it is not super straightforward and will definitely take time and research (which we weren’t willing to put in, to be honest – the Discover Herzegovina Tour was just too time-efficient and convenient).

What Other Travellers Say About the Discover Herzegovina Tour

⭐ Rating: 5.0 / 5 (384 reviews)

This tour was incredible from start to finish. Esmer, our guide, was absolutely brilliant. His passion was genuine and I learned so much about the history, geography and all aspects of life in Bosnia-Herzegovina. All the sites visited were stunning, and I felt we had enough time at all of them. I enjoyed the fact this tour is with a small group (we were 8), as it allows great interactions between the group and with the guide. Many people asked Esmer questions that allowed him to share great insights on life in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The visit of Mostar war museum at the end was very special, and I love Esmer's perspective and fairness in describing such a difficult period. I can't recommend this tour enough! Well worth the money!

What to Expect on the Discover Herzegovina Tour?

  1. Get a panoramic view of Mostar from the Mostar Skywalk
  2. Blagaj – visit the Buna Spring and the Dervish House. It’s a great picture spot! You can enjoy a scenic coffee or visit the Dervish House (you have to pay to get inside).
  3. Buna Channel. We didn’t know what to expect. Firstly, there is this cool channel with rushing water. Secondly, there is water on two levels producing a line of small waterfalls. All in all a super picturesque place.
  4. Pocitelj – a Medieval town often referred to as Bosnia and Herzegovina’s open-air museum. Cute cobblestone alleys with an Ottoman feel – complete with a mosque and a clock tower. The highlight is the fortress. Your guide can point out the best vantage point. From this point of the fortress, you can see the whole town of Pocitelj which is shaped like a natural amphitheatre as well as the Neretva River.

You have enough time to explore on your own.

Bucketlist2life travel tip: The bakery at the parking spot is your most cost-efficient option to buy food on this tour!
  1. Kravice waterfalls where you can have a swim, a drink or a proper meal – prices are rather high though…
  2. Mostar War Museum where your guide will give a short explanation of the latest war.
