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.
I thought it was very good we didn't have to worry about anything everything was in order and kept with the schedule as planned, unless we wanted to deviated from it to do somethingelse. The trip really a trip of a life time.
There was a time many years ago that I wanted to travel to Egypt and didn't because of the cost. This trip was, to me, very affordable. I think everyone should experience this trip. The tour guide was alos excellent, Sherif Mohammad.
Ant provided excellent service. He always responded as quickly as he could, attending to the questions I had for him. He was also very patient and pleasant. I depended on his knowledge and service to make the trip.
I liked the service and the tour guide & driver on the tour. They were professional and provided very good service. I thought 1-2 hotels on the trip were not quite 4-star. It also happened that this group of people was always late for schedule and our walk pace was too slow. It really needs the guide to make people on schedule and be punctual for the activity. Overall I think the time management of this tour needs improvement.
I purchased my rid tour as part of a group coupon. Is obituary hesitant but my tour was great. The staff at Encounters were professional and helpful. I had a lot of questions but no one made me feel like a pest. Good experience.
I always wanted to go to Morocco and I finally got to go last September. I'm glad I chose this tour group. They were professional and attentive. Good times!
This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.
Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
