The tour was worth coming to Sarajevo. Tarik made it a special experience at the end of our trip. We immediately felt at home and were able to explore the city in a friendly manner. Thanks to his wealth of historical and cultural information, we got to know the city in a completely different way than if we had explored it alone. The special highlight was the bakery that Tarik showed us. We have never eaten anything as delicious as here! It is an absolute must when you come to Sarajevo.

Azur was a very communicative guide. His knowledge of geopolitical issues and also of Bosnia was impressive - he had an answer for everything and enriched the tour with personal anecdotes and he was authentic. I can recommend this tour to everyone - it's absolutely worth the money. From the bakery to the delicious Bosnian coffee - it was wonderful.

Tarik was absolutely amazing! Every penny I spent on this tour was absolutely worth it. He picked me up right at my Airbnb and we went on a 5-hour journey through beautiful and historical Sarajevo. As a solo female traveller, I felt safe the entire time having Tarik by my side. It was as if I was spending the day with a friend. Hvala Tarik!

The knowledge and friendliness of our guide Azur was outstanding. He had a vast historical and political knowledge of Sarajevo and gave some insight into modern day living in Bosnia. Everything was amazing and we throughly enjoyed the food stops we made. We couldn’t have asked for a better host during our stay.

Tarik was a great tour guide. Very informative. And he was helpful even after the tour. Thank you! Highly recommend.
