Q: Why does the tour start in Croatia and not in Bosnia itself?
A: Most of our travellers (90%) join this tour straight after a Croatia Sailing tour with one of those providers such as Busabout, Sail Croatia, Top Deck, Katarina Line and Contiki. As most of these 7-day boat tours finish on a Saturday in Split or Dubrovnik, then it makes sense for the tour to start at a convenient location for our travellers. However, you can certainly join the tour in Mostar if that is more convenient with you.
Q: What time does the tour depart from Split and Dubrovnik?
A: The bus to Bosnia (start point over the border) departs at 9.30am every Saturday.
Q: Is the tour fully led all the way through?
A: You will have a Bosnian/English-speaking tour leader who will meet you off the bus in Capljina and then the rest of the tour is in the private tour vehicle with him. He will have a day off on the Tuesday in Sarajevo, but you can book a separate tour guide for that day. By law, he can orientate you around every destination, but is not allowed to give you an in-depth guided walk around Mostar either, but there is also the option of a walking tour of the old city there.
Q: I am a solo traveller or in a couple - if I don't want to share a dorm, can I pay a double/single supplement?
A: Yes, you can pay a double or single supplement - please email us for prices. You must also book your single cabin and rooms in advance.
Q: What food is included?
A: Breakfasts are included every morning.
Q: What if I am vegetarian or have other special dietary requirements, how can you help me?
A: You should tell us about your special dietary requirements before your tour starts and we can ensure that the breakfasts are more suited to your requirements.
Q:Can I leave the tour in Sarajevo?
A: Yes, you can. The price would then be £399 GBP.
Q:Can I join the tour in Mostar?
A: Yes, you can. The price would remain the same and you can meet the group at the accommodation in Mostar in the late afternoon. However, you would miss the Kravica Waterfalls part of the tour.
Q: Do I have to have any insurance?
A: We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance before you go.
Q: Are there towels provided?
A: You will not be provided with bathroom towels at the accommodation. However, you should definitely bring your own beach towel for swim stops at places such as Kravica Waterfalls.
