What people are saying about Sarajevo

Agan was our guide for this tour from Sarajevo to herzegovina. We were 3 persons . He took us in his private car. I loved the explanations about the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Except his explantions, we asked him a lot of questions and got nice answers. Agan amazed us with his extensive knowledge. Agan wanted to go directly to Mostar. But i insisted to go first to destroyed Neretva Bridge . So, we went to the Bridge. Then to Mostar. Then to Balagi. Then to the waterfalls. On the way back to Sarajevo , we went to a middle ages village, but we were very tired. We came back to our hotel at 20:00. I want to mention Agan careful driving!!!! Thank you

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.

It was an incredibly beautiful trip. All destinations were beautiful, lots of nature! Very nice guide. Was really fun! If you would like to see what Bosnia has to offer in terms of nature, you should definitely book the tour.

Very nice trip with a good guide, it's a lot of fun, you learn a lot and can visit many sights comfortably and in one day. Recommended

Armina is amazing!! She’s so knowledgeable and helpful. 100% recommend this trip
