What people are saying about Sarajevo

Enes really knows his stuff. A credit to Bosnia which he is so passionate about. Please keep doing what you love Enes and educating people on what you and your people have endured.

So give this a go to enrichen your knowledge on the best and worst of humanity. One things for sure, your tour guide represents the best.

Excellent tour and my guide (Arna) is so considerate. We stopped at 6 viewpoints including one stop for toilet break. All the viewpoints are breathtaking and definitely is a must do if you ever visit to Sarajevo. Despite we have 14 pax that booked the same tour on the same day, we were split into two groups (7 in a group) and the small size tour means we were well taken care by Arna and the driver drives carefully.

Been to so many tours before but have never seen such passionate tour guide (Ahmed). He is so informative and told us many history stories of Bosnia. It was well told by him since he majored in history and is still studying at the University of Sarajevo. Best history experience ever.

Tour was easy to book and the communication with local agency was super pleasant. We had two guide, one driving and one talking. The tour was extra spicy because both of them were directly involved in war.

This was a great tour. I learned a lot that helped put my visit to Sarajevo in perspective. Haris knows a ton and can speak from his unique first-hand perspective.
