Дуже сподобалася гід, чудова водійка. Гід у Мостарі був також дуже класним, все зрозуміло та чітко розповідав, навіть з невисоким рівнем англійської зрозуміло. Дуже емпатичний, порівняв підступний напад росії на Україну, з нападом Сербії на Боснію. У країні дуже смачна їжа, краєвиди - неймовірні

Very knowledgeable guide, very informative and helpful. My partner and I now have better understanding into the history of Dubrovnik upon visiting museums etc...
