We really enjoyed the experience as a whole. Having a tour guide that had actually lived through what was being told to us really made a difference. You absolutely must go on this tour and with Amina. It will be an experience you will never forget and one that will change your life.

Interesting experience

We were picked up by Amina at the hotel for the Dark history & war tour. Amina herself was 10.5 when the war started. So she had plenty to say. Beautiful impressive stories. During the various stops we had plenty of time to look around and ask questions. At the end of the tour she asked us where to drop us off, if there was anything else she could do for us. She also wanted to provide her number in case we had any questions or problems during our stay. A very good guide and nice tour. Definitely gives depth to a visit to Sarajevo.

almost obliged to book this tour.

I can highly recommend any person who visits Sarajevo to enjoy and be amazed by this fantastic tour with Jenny. She's a wandering encyclopedy. In addition to her knowledge of the last war there, she also knew how to answer every question asked with a lot of passion and dedication. Thank you for this 3 hour long very interesting experience !!!
