Formerly a war zone, Bosnia & Herzegovina is now a safe country to visit and crime levels are generally low.
The currency used in Bosnia & Herzegovina is the convertible mark, which is divided into 100 pfenigs or fenings.
The best time to visit Bosnia & Herzegovina is May, June and early September, as the temperature is cooler, and the conditions are perfect for hiking. February and March are ideal for skiing and winter activities.
Many Bosniaks are Muslim, but there is almost no local culture for wearing Islamic dress. Tourists can wear casual attire but should choose conservative clothing when visiting mosques or religious sites.
The tap water is safe to drink, and you should keep a water bottle to fill up with free mineral water at several roadside springs.
My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
I was pleased and impressed with the experience in booking and obtain all necessary documents in a timely manner. I am looking forward to my tour and hope the ground experience it just as good. This trip is my dream/bucket list trip.
Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience
I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.

There is nothing quite like travelling solo. Exploring new places and experiencing new things by yourself can be an eye-opening and almost life-changing adventure. However, one thing that often puts people off travelling solo is the single supplement. We have put together a helpful guide with all you need to know about single supplements, so that you can book your solo trip with complete confidence.
