i have been to sarajevo before... it is the first time i booked a walking tour. Emina T. gave a detailed and empathetic presentation, from a detailed description of how Franz Ferdinand was murdered, to her personal experiences during the Yugoslav war back in 91-92, to drinking bosnian coffee with us and explaining the tradition of how to drink a bosnian coffee

We had a good experience on this trip. Ken showed alot of sensitivity during and after the trip, which is a very difficult and emotional one, and made us feel comfortable throughout. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about it. One piece of advice to people on the tour is to bring lunch because by the time it got to 3pm we were very hungry.

This trip was really great if you have the right people guide with you such as Emina Koso. You are about to explore everything without missing the viewing of nature the history behind the place from its original people . This is a must tourist point to visit in Bosnia. I highly recommend it.

It was a great experience. Exciting visit to the tunnel museum. Our guide Enes was very well prepared, spoke perfect English and told us many things also experienced firsthand during the siege. Highly recommended !!! Elizabeth

It was a long day, nearly 13 hours in all but our guide wanted all of us to see the beauty of her country. It is beautiful!
