Recommended for Travel Services in BiH
I was a solo female traveler in BiH. During my time there, I engaged Invicta for four day-tours around the country. Edin was my guide and driver.I was initially apprehensive about travelling alone with a male guide but was quickly put at ease by Edin after meeting him the very first morning. I understand that Invicta is a new start-up and Edin is also relatively new to the trade. Edin, however, appeared ... more to be a knowledgeable guide and was able to answer my questions (in fluent English) at ease. He was also a very safe driver, which should be requirement for all travellers looking to engage a driver, given the mostly narrow and winding roads and lanes in the country.I usually take quite some time to warm up to new people but with Edin, I found it effortless to maintain a conversation with him. Apart from the usual guide-traveller conversations, Edin and I also had many discussions during our meals together and drive trips about our personal lives and experiences. I am truly thankful that I engaged Invicta (which responded promptly to all my queries) for their services and appreciate the time I had with Edin, which gave me the opportunities to learn about the beautiful country and her hospitable people, and to know Edin, as a person.My best wishes to Invicta and Edin.Joyce (Singapore)

Great Tours, helpful workers
My boyfriend and I took a 3-hour private city tour (25€ each), which included the Tunnel of Hope, the Old Jewish Cemetery, other important war sites, and panoramas of the city. Our guide, Edin, was very knowledgable and kind. He and his manager also helped us with questions we had just about every day. I just wish we'd taken their Mostar/Herzegovina tour, because I think we'd have gotten more out ... more of the experience than travelling their ourselves. Thanks, guys.
