Essential Free Tour Mostar
We had a wonderful tour through the old town of Mostar! Mirjana was a passionate tour guide, who not only showed us the historical and political background, but could also tell us about personal experiences and thus gave a very authentic insight into the city. Absolute recommendation!
Hi Sara! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience walking with Mirjana on tour. We appreciate it. So glad you enjoyed the blend of historical and current context as well as personal insight and experience shared during your tour. We hope the rest of your visit to Mostar was wonderful (and hopefully you caught some of the bridge diving competition!). Thanks again and happy travels, Sheva Walking Tours Team.
