We did this tour with Dario. It was really interesting, we learned about jugoslavia and the war and visited places we wouldn’t find by ourself.
The Death of Yugoslavia is award-winning tour featuring the complete timeline of the nation's birth and death. By visiting three locations, we explore Yugoslavia during the Cold War, directly between the nuclear missiles of both Warsaw and the NATO pact. We explore Tito and how his actions led to the formation of a prosperous non-aligned country. We explore the rise of nationalism after the fall of Communism. And finally, we witness the Yugoslavian War. All of this will be seen among these locations, unwilling monuments to the existence of a country which died more than 20 years ago but is still alive in the minds of its former citizens.
During the tour we visit three fascinating locations, an abandoned Yugoslav secret base, the buildings in Mostar representative for that period and the Partisan monument. Each of them telling a story about Yugoslavia, a country that died more than 20 years ago. The locations are kept secret so as to not spoil the story and the quality of the whole experience. The tour is scheduled each day at 5pm, driven by local charismatic, experienced guides. The tour is fully narrated at the location of each sight and during the drive from one locale to the next. By tour's end, you will have a better understanding and appreciation of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 21st century.

What an amazing tour with incredible and important information about the city of Mostar and its roll in communist Bosnia and surrounding countries. Locations on tour were mind blowing. I'd even say life changing. Dario, my friend, you are a legend! Highly recommended.
All the other reviews about this tour up to now (May 2018) are spot on. I don't think I have much more to add. Apart from the fact that Miran is AWESOME! Knowledgeable, honest, friendly, accommodating and definitely a guy who takes his job seriously....More
We did this tour last week- it was honestly one of my only reasons for going to Mostar. As I was planning my trip to Croatia, I became super interested in the 20th century history of this side of the Balkans. The more I read,...More
This is a great tour, and we were lucky enough to have Miran as our guide. He is passionate about his country and its history. Very engaging and knowledgable. You can visit a city and get a feel for it, but with a tour like...More
