This was an absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. From the time I first spoke with our agent via email, the options for this trip were well-presented and tailored to our requests (including changes to the initial proposal based on recommendations from friends). As the travel company is based in Croatia, I largely relied on the already overwhelmingly positive reviews others have posted here. Like another reviewer, I was somewhat skeptical at first of nearly every single review being 5 stars. However, given the excellent presentations, responsiveness, and reassuring communication from our agent, I had a great deal of trust that everything would work out before we arrived.
The trip was outstanding in every way. Our guides were knowledgeable and engaging, the drivers excellent, and everything ran incredibly well (while still being flexible during the day). It was the best planned vacation I have ever had, yet still felt like a relaxed, carefree Mediterranean vacation. I suppose it helps that Croatia and Bosnia i Hercegovina are absolutely gorgeous and the food was wonderful.
The trip to the Bibich winery was wonderful (we didn't realize until after the fact that it had been featured on Anthony Bourdain's show). The oyster tasting / mussels meal on the small island was also wonderful and a not-to-be-missed experience (my wife and sister-in-law generally dislike oysters, and even they enjoyed the experience and ate a few). We also loved Sarajevo generally (underrated city - truly enlightening re: the war and with a delightful old town) and the trip from there through Mostar was fantastic (we stopped at a few small towns to enjoy the scenery, and our driver provided good history re: the Neretva river).
Really just wish we could have had a few more days, as it would have been nice to enjoy Dubrovnik (and our amazing hotel on the beach) more. Also felt that the Hvar island day went on a bit too long, but that was likely due to ferry schedules (the two hour ride back to Split on the slower ferry was not enjoyable as it was packed and hot).
