About Our Bosnia Tour

The Bosnia tour was the first trip we ever hosted at Halal Travel Guide almost 5 years ago, and it continues to be one of our most popular trips.  Here's what you say when you travel with us:

"Best travel guide in town (Perioddt),very considerate of everyone’s travel preferences, you get to interact with the locals and learn about their history. The amazing part is a percentage of the proceeds go towards to help those less fortunate and the planet. In the words of Mohammed Ali- “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”
Travel experience and Sadaqah in one, can’t get better than that. Looking forward to our many more adventures together. Next trip Imma bring the siblings iA."

Airport Transfer Window

ARRIVAL TRANSFER: On Saturday from 10 am - 12 pm (2-hour window)

Many airlines including British Airways, EasyJet and Jet2 all fly direct to Dubrovnik Airport, where our driver will pick you up and take you across the border into Bosnia.

DEPARTURE TRANSFER: On Thursday, your plane should not depart before 12 pm, to give you time to get to the airport from Bosnia, which takes around 2.5 hours to drive from Mostar-Dubrovnik Airport. You can choose an even later flight and spend the afternoon exploring Dubrovnik at your leisure (it's entirely up to you).

These transfer windows have been planned to align with most international flights to Dubrovnik. We welcome guests from all nationalities and countries to join the trip and can arrange separate airport transfers where necessary, for an additional fee of £160.
