I visited Bosnia in December and I took some tours with Invicta Travel and I really had wonderfull experience.
From the time I contacted Dzenana to talk about tour options she has been warm and helpful, giving me all sorts of good advice. Her kindness has gone above and beyond as she waited for me at the airport as I dealt with a damaged suitcase. She helped me with bus tickets and provided an extremely informative war tour and kindly took me to the bus station at the end of my stay. She also organized the following two private tours at highly competitive rates. I am most grateful to her for all her many kindnesses.
The tour to Srebrenica with Safet was sensational. His breadth of knowledge meant that I had an understanding of the political complexities that lead to the situation. As we traveled through the beautiful autumn countryside of Bosnia I felt free to ask all sorts of different questions about both the local political and the broader geo political situation of the war.
Srebrenica memorial is powerful in its simplicity. There is a large variety of photographic displays across the road which is well worth seeing.
Safet is an artist of considerable talent. I was privileged to see photos of some of his work and to discuss them with him.
For me the purpose of the day was to bear witness to genocide: our conversation both deepened that, including other atrocities and sufferings that were an integral part of the war, and also added breadth as we discussed history, art, psychology and sociology. Truly a magnificent tour. Thank you Safet.
My final tour was with Edin. It was to Travnik and Jajce. Edin was knowable about the medieval history of the places we visited as well as being willing to talk about Bosnia’s recent history. Both the countryside and the towns visited were beautiful. Edin was kind and patient as I slowly navigated some challenging cobblestones.
Bosnia is a beautiful country, with warm and friendly people. I am so pleased I used Invicta Travel.
I was traveling solo from Dubrovnik to Sarajevo. Invicta arranged a guide/driver for me together with sight seeing along the way. As I was traveling alone, I felt a little apprehensive but my guide Safet drove carefully and soon put me at ease. He was very informative about his country and strives to provide a good service for his tourists. I also did a walking our and tunnel tour with Safet and again learnt so much about his country and city.
I highly recommended both Safet and the company. Good luck to both the company and Safet.
I would say to anyone considering a trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina to contact Invicta Travel. Invicta Travel is a team of young and client-oriented people who can propose any rich trip programme in a short time. I stayed only four days in Bosnia in July 2017 but I wanted to discover all main wonders of Bosnia and Herzegovina including Sarajevo, Mostar, Blagaj, Medugorje, Kravice, Neum. Invicta Travel prepared the most acceptable trip route at a right price. The driver guide called Edin was a true professional both as a driver and travel guide.
The road that connects Neum, the only Bosnia and Herzegovina’s city that exits the Adriatic Sea, wasn’t an easy road as upon reasonable advice of Invicta Travel we didn’t enter the territory of Croatia but took the but took a detour so as to avoid traffic jams crossing borders and gain precious time. I would recommend excellent driver guide Edin to anybody who has little time but wants to cross the main wonders of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

- Sightseeing starts from the Sebilj. A famous wooden fountain located in the heart of Bascarija – Old town. Strolling down through the streets from XVI century, don’t be surprised if it remind you to Istanbul.

The old Stay In, Coppersmith street, Gazy Husrev- bey’s Mosque, Library, Clock tower, Old bazar Bezistan are just some of the highlights of this Ottoman area.
- Suddenly at some point you will realize scenery around you is completely different. You are standing at the point where East meet West. There is no other European city that has exact line of meetings of two cultures: Western and Orient. Make a step from Istanbul to Vienna. Let’s find out why Sarajevo is often called “Jerusalem of Europe”. At very small area there is at least half a dozen places of worship of four religious: Islam, Judaism, Catholicism and Eastern Orthodox Church. The sound of church bell mix with a call for prayer by muezzin.

- 1425 days – 3 years, 10 months and 24 days. That’s how long Sarajevo was under the siege in early ’90. It is pretty incredible that both first and last most important events of the 20th century happened in this very city.

Day 2 - Mostar, Konjic and Blagaj
- After the rich breakfast at the hotel, the guide will meet you and take you to the sunny and warm part of our country, Herzegovina.

- Tito's bunker, one of the top secrets of former Yugoslavia, is hidden under the mountain Zlatar, with the deepest of 280 meters underground. The bunker was built for 26 years in secret, with its main purpose to protect Josip Broz Tito, the president of former Yugoslavia, and 350 people from political and state leadership in case of nuclear attack.
- Note* Tito's bunker is included in this stop only upon request.
- After a short coffee break, with a nice view of the Old Ottoman style bridge, you will proceed to Mostar. Camera is a must have. The scenery is breathtaking.
- Mostar is the center of Herzegovina region. After introduction to the history of this region, you are going directly to the worldwide known Old Bridge – Stari Most.
- Stari Most is a 16th century, Ottoman style bridge and Mostar's most notable architectural landmark. Stretching 28 meters across Neretva river, it connect the two sides of the city. It proudly stood there for 427 years, until it was destroyed in 1993 during the Bosnian war. Thanks to postwar restoration efforts,a new bridge was built in 2004.
- Unless you visit Mostar during winter, you will definitely get a chance to watch brave yet talented local men dive off the bridge, plunging 20 meters into the cold river below. The practice of diving off the bridge started back 1664 and become the tradition for the young man of Mostar. In 1968, the city even held a formal diving competition, which still continues today.
- The walk continues to Koski Pasha Mehmed mosque, built in 1618. It is a simple but pretty mosque. For a small fee you can enter the mosque and even climb the very narrow staircase in the minaret for the most spectacular view of Mostar and the Old Bridge.
- Lunch time? It is your choice ! Lunch beside the Old Bridge or in Blagaj – our next stop? Any choice is just perfect.
- Blagaj , heaven of peace and harmony is just 15 min drive form Mostar. It is an ancient capital of Herzegovina. The Buna spring is simply breathtaking. It is also one of the largest sources of drink water in Europe.
- Next to the water source, is a 16th century Dervish house – Tekke. It is still one of the most mystical places in Bosnia & Herzegovina. The place is still used for dervish gathering but it is also a museum. While being there one can definitely feel the spiritual power of this place.
- Blagaj is a perfect place to end the third day of your Bosnia holiday. It is time to make your self comfortable and drive back to Sarajevo.
- You will be returned to Sarajevo and transferred to your hotel. Overnight in 4* hotel in Sarajevo.
Day 3 - Sarajevo Olympic Mountains

- During the summer the mountain offers a multitude of marked cycling trails, as well as places where both athlets and amateurs can play football, wollewball and basketball.
- After Igman, you are heading to Bjelasnica. Mount Bjelasnica with 2,067m hight was named after the white snow cover which remains on its tops until August.

The entire infrastructure of the ski center and hotel facilities were destroyed during the last war.
