Daily at 8 AM from Split and Dubrovnik
Morning drive will take us through interesting areas of West Herzegovina before we hit the first stop at stunning waterfalls of Kravica.
Situated near Ljubuški, Trebižat river with its travertine sedimentations is today offering us unique and breathtaking attraction – Kravica waterfalls.
Height range from 26-28 meters and water amphitheater of 120 meters below, plus surrounding nature of Kravica waterfalls altogether fall into unique geological monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
After departing from Kravice waterfalls we will very soon arrive to Počitelj (“Počivati” – Bos.”to rest in peace”).
Nested above Neretva river, this unique, medieval, Ottoman era glorified, present day Ottoman-Mediterranean style “architectured” fortress – town Počitelj, is one of the very few urban ensembles in Bosnia and Herzegovina preserved in their integrity to the present times.
We will take an easy uphill, one hour long walk, accompanied with a stories of town’s development and strategic importance during its 600+ year long written history and visit to most important sites such as Hajji Alija Mosque, Clock Tower and Gavrankapetanovic tower, IS A MUST, for anyone passing through or near Herzegovina region.
Then, we continue through some really amazing parts of Neretva river canyon, telling the unique stories of Herzegovina, before we arrive to our next stop at Blagaj.
Blagaj town is home to Buna river spring – Europe’s most beautiful, most powerful, clean and drinkable karst river spring, settled beneath few hundred meters high rock. Water comes out of quite large but stunningly deep cave, which springs amazing 43 cubic meters of water per second. Can you imagine this?
Just next to the spring, under the rock, is home to Blagaj Tekke – Dervish house, dating most likely pre or early Ottoman era from late 15th century, as unique sacral-residential example of Islamic architecture in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Visiting this complex and learning more about Dervish life in Herzegovina as important part of our history is, MUST DO.
For Muslim travellers “Tekija” is place where prayers are hosted 5 times a day and can be attended if wanted.
After visit to “Blagajska Tekija” and “Izvor rijeke Bune” we stay there for bit longer. It is time for lunch. Due to famousness and cleanliness of Buna river the most important thing to taste in Blagaj today is local trout.
That is why we don’t leave the place before we offer our guests to try locally prepared trout on “Blagaj Way”, enjoying amazing scenery of Buna river spring and Dervish house next to it. Vegetarians don’t worry, we have solutions for you as well 🙂
Once we finish with a visit to amazingly beautiful Blagaj, we will head towards Mostar.
Upon arrival, we’ll start our 2 hour walking tour which will cover most important sites and locations in this, truly unique, small town.
During the walking tour we will focus at Mostar Old Bridge, Old Bazaar and Old Town, but offer stories of Mostar uniqueness, in regard to historical and cultural diversity.
Tour will cover facts about the Old Bridge, it’s rise and fall, and how it had risen again. We learn about Siege of Mostar, its pre and post siege period. You get to know, about why it is called Mostar, about Mostarians. We recreate Mostar for you and with you.
After an two hour of interesting drive through central Herzegovina regions and canyon of Neretva we will arrive to Sarajevo where we will drop you of at your amazing, centrally located hotel to relax and have a free evening so you could gather impressions over dinner and get ready for the next day.
Today you are lucky to wake up in one of the most historically interesting and varied cosmopolitan European capital. Sarajevo is a place where the people of the Roman Catholic west, Eastern Orthodox east and the Ottoman south coexist for centuries, and no matter on historical turbulence this city is a flare of hope for peace and tolerance through multi-cultural integration.
After you finish your tasty homemade breakfast in hotel, we will pick you up and take you to our walking tour of Sarajevo which offers a great introduction to the city. It is a perfect opportunity to get the basic knowledge about our city, history, people, architecture, religion, culture, food etc.
We will start the tour on Baščaršija square and our first stop will be famous Sebilj Fountain, after we learn the story about Sebilj, we will continue along and go for a visit to Vijećnica (City Hall); Inat Kuća (Spite House);
White and Yellow Bastions; Šeher- ćehaja, Imperial and Latin Bridge; Imperial mosque, Gazi Husref Beys mosque complex (Mosque, Khanikah, Ezantash, Fountain, Clock Tower, Gazi Husrev beys bezistan, Madrassa, public bathroom, public kitchen etc); Jewish Museum; Old Temple; Cathedral; Orthodox Church; Morića Han etc.
Hopefully, at the end of the part 1 for this day, you will already be convinced Sarajevo truly is a delight to visit.
After we are finished with first part of the day, we shall have a break, ideal for tasty Bosnian lunch where you can try variety of local dishes and try Bosnian coffee and some sweets.
Second part of the day is reserved for the Sarajevo Total Siege tour and story related to Siege of Sarajevo from 92 until 95.
We believe that the learning about the Siege of Sarajevo is one of the most important things to do if you decide to visit Sarajevo, and this is the tour which will really help you to understand the recent history of Sarajevo.
On the tour, you are going to have the opportunity to see many sites directly connected to the Siege of Sarajevo, like the War Tunnel Museum, Trebević Mountain, Sarajevo Bobsleigh and many other.
Sarajevo Total Siege Tour is guided by the people who actually survived siege of Sarajevo so, among visiting all the most important locations you will also be able to hear some interesting stories and personal experiences that will explain closer the survival of citizens of Sarajevo.
For a perfect closure of this exciting day we will make sure to make a dinner reservations in one of the best local restaurants where you will have a chance to try various types of the most “appetizing” Bosnian meals. Later evening is reserved for free time on your own.
Another morning in Sarajevo, and one more yummy breakfast followed by packing and promises you will come back very soon again.
Our first stop for this day, will be Konjic. This particular, prehistorically inhabited, charming town is famous for 17th century 6-arch Old Bridge, looming over turquoise Neretva river.
Here, at the best preserved Ottoman bridge in Bosnia and Herzegovina, we will witness the exquisiteness of the Upper Neretva river and learn the story of famousness of white water rafting.
However, perhaps the most famous site in Konjic, is Tito`s nuclear bunker.
In the early 1950s, Josip Broz Tito, the late leader of the former Yugoslavia, ordered the building of a secret bunker that would safeguard the country’s ruling class in case of a nuclear attack. Located 900 feet (270 m) underground, town of Konjic, the 26-year project was only completed in 1979, the year before Tito died, and it was built at a cost equivalent to just under £3 billion ($4.6 billion).
If restocked with supplies it would still serve its purpose – allowing 350 people to live and work for six months without ever coming outside. More about this place you see here.
As soon as we leave big secret behind, ride continues by passing large, dammed but very beautiful Jablanicko lake, with short stop at Jablanica where we learn WW2 story of “Neretva Battle” and “sniff” into the way how famous roasted lamb on the spit is made.
After Jablanica we will continue with a drive through some really amazing parts of Neretva river canyon, telling the unique stories of Herzegovina.
Later we will continue along Herzegovina and visit one of the most treasured and most important monuments in our country which, from 2017 belongs to UNESCO heritage – Radmilja Necropolis.
Radmilja Necropolis is stećak necropolis located just next to the small town called Stolac. First examples of stećak tombstones in this area date from the late 14th century making this unique necropolis definitely worth visiting.
Our last stop of the day will be amazing Vjetrenica Cave. Vjetrenica (eng.”wind cave”) is the largest and most important cave in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and one of the most interesting caves in the Dinaric Alps mountain range.
The cave has been explored to a total of about 7 km in length but is assumed to be around 20 km and as it is known, is the richest cave in the world in terms of subterranean biodiversity.
Proteus anguinus (human fish), amazing stalactite and stalagmite decorations are simply too amazing to miss out, so that is why Vjetrenica is also one of Herzegovina must sees and also our last stop before we arrive to Dubrovnik.
In case you would rather not take similar returning route via Herzegovina (see a map) even though in this original itinerary there are many interesting stops which are all worth seeing, you can consider to replace part of the trip between Sarajevo and Split with itinerary which goes via Jajce and Travnik. See more information about that trip on our Jajce and Travnik Day Tour.
With extra day, making this itinerary 4D3N with one night in Mostar, you can enjoy evening beauty of this amazing city. Ask about this option via our Enquiry Form.
Excellent Service and knowledgeable guides
I booked a three day tour from Dubrovnik to Split via Sarajevo. I was the only one booked so I had a driver and guide all to myself. The guides are all very knowledgeable. There is so much history to try and get your head around and I have to say, the team were very impartial to try and provide a idea of both sides of the story. I had 2 full days days of transfers and one full day in Sarajevo with fantastic tours along the way across all three days.
I would recommend this group and would travel with them again if I go to this part of the world. Good value for money.
Dubrovnik to Sarajevo including Mostar & Srebrenica | 4 days
We toured Croatia on our own and joined SFT in Dubrovnik where they fetched us. Highly recommend this tour company. From initial interactions with Ema to our reception with Taib and Faris, we received professionalism, warmth, and consistent consideration despite numerous stops. We met Haris, then Adnan and Armina on subsequent days and while the standard of some of the tour venues in Sarajevo may have upgrading potential, the tour guides more than made up. Our accommodation in Mostar at Fortuna and Colors Inn in Sarajevo was also to an international standard. Taib carefully and measuredly answered a variety/levels of questions as the educated historian he is about the past, present and future of Bosnia-Herzegovina and the Serb Republic. Ema even checked on us each morning and evening & arranged birthday treats for one of our party members. Our days were full and educational. Keep up the good work. You’ve made our stay unforgettable. With love from South Africa ❤️✊
If you’re planning to come to Bosnia-Herzegovina (I hope you do), contact Funky Tours.
I booked my 3-day trip on a whim. Finding a tour agency was a bit tricky (wanted to see Mostar and a few other sites); however, I came across Funky Tours. The agency was EXTREMELY responsive and friendly. The actual tour guide was great. She did everything in her power to make sure we had a good time and saw what the group wanted to see. Very professional and kind hearted. I even saw my guide on a day on my own. She was happy to answer any questions I had and point me in the right direction.
Thanks very much, Funky Tours. I will be sure to recommend you and your beautiful country to others!
Incredible Bosnia-Herzegovina experience thanks to Sarajevo Funky Tours
After reading the numerous positive reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to contact Sarajevo Funky Tours to help us with our travel plans for Bosnia-Herzegovina. From the very outset, all our emails were promptly replied to by Skender, and then later, Ema. Both were full of great ideas and suggestions.
We decided to use this company comprehensively and booked a two day Zagreb to Sarajevo tour and a three day Sarajevo to Dubrovnik tour. Whilst in Sarajevo we undertook the Walking Tour, the Siege Tour, the Srebrenica Tour and the East Bosnia-West Serbia Tour. All of these tours were amazing.
The same could also be said for our guides (Damir, Armina, Skender and Adnan) and our drivers (Haris, Faris, Adnir and Alam). All of these people were very friendly and displayed incredible passion and knowledge about their country. Our understanding of the complex history of this beautiful country was certainly enhanced by these wonderful people.
For anyone considering visiting this region, we highly recommend that you contact Sarajevo Funky Tours – you will not be disappointed.
Thank you everyone at Sarajevo Funky Tours for making our time in Bosnia-Herzegovina one of the most memorable trips we have ever undertaken.
Excellent private day trip through Bosnia and Herzegovina
Our group (4 people) thoroughly enjoyed our trip from Plitvice Lakes Croatia to Sarajevo with Sarajevo Funky Tours. We did a private trip due to our interests and time available.Our driver and guide were fun, flexible and full of knowledge. They told us many stories during our bus trips and while touring sights. I cannot praise them enough.
Skender the owner was great to deal with. He organised the trip based on our interests and was very patient when I emailed him a couple of weeks before trip asking to change pick up point and dates. He was also very understanding when two of our group had to pull out at last minute. The hotels he booked for us were in excellent locations. We loved B& H, particularly the people of B&H and Sarajevo. It was our favourite country during our 3 weeks travel.
Our itinerary was:
Plitvice Lakes – BBihac
Bihac – jace-Jablancia-Mostar. Overnight in Mostar. Highly recommend to stay an evening in Mostar without the crowds.
Mostar – Sarajevo via Konijc , Blagaj
Sarajevo old town tour and Total Siege Tour
Bjelasnica Olympic Mountain Hike
Highly recommend a visit to B&H and Sarajevo Funky Tours
