The tour was very very nice, I enjoyed every part of it. The tour guide Agan is very friendly and was very informative about the history of the country and told me many tales and stories about Bosnia and the Bosnian war. I would totally recommend the tour, either you know or don’t know much about the war because you get to see everything with your eyes plus the much information you get from Agan, since he grew up during the war time.

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.

Very informative tour, told by the perspective of a person who lived through the siege and a driver who fought during the war. The driver took us to the most important points of the siege and the guide explained each spot’s history and place during the war. Small hike to the park at the top of the city through the old trails of the Winter Olympics and we were given time to take pictures and engage with the tour guide. The tour finished with a lovely treat of some of the best baklava in Sarajevo! Highly recommend for anyone interested in knowing more about the history of the city.
