Authentic, leaving a big impact!

We were the only couple on the tour so we had a ‘private’ tour. The tourguide picked us up in her car at our hotel. We drove to a number of places and throughout she explained what happened during the war and which buildings were destroyed, etc. As she had lived trough the war (she was 11 at the time), the stories she shared were very personal and left a big impact on us. This is not a tour where you should expect a lot of laughter on but a tour everyone should take to remind ourselves of the impact of a war and how innocent people are always the victim. From our entire vacation (we visited Vienna, Cavtat and Split also as part of our vacation) this is the one which made the biggest impression and the one which we will remember the longest.

Horrible from the start. Wasted my entire morning trying to coordinate excursion. Very unhelpful customer service. Paid for private tour. Agency said it was a public tour. Spent hours trying to understand what was going on. Wound up canceling. Very upset!!!!! I will take action regarding my bad experience!!!

Recomendable hacer este tour si visitas la ciudad. Te da una visión estremecedora de lo que fue la guerra en la población. Nosotros a hicimos con un gúia que hablaba español y fue muy amable y agradable así como el conductor que nos llevaba.
