The guide was really great, his English was very easy to understand. The tour group was just the three of us. He took us up the mountain toward the ruins and around a cemetary. Allowed us to get fresh pomegranate juice and drink a coffee with a beautiful view. Highly recommend this as a familiarisation tour when you first arrive! We even got the full story and to see the site where Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. Thank you to the your guide who made this a great tour!

My guide in Sarajevo was Kiki who is an unbelievable and very passionate local expert. She has so much knowledge of the history, the culture and all of the changes that Sarajevo has been through over the centuries. She showed me so many fascinating places that I would have never found by myself. Kiki has good tips on places to eat, drink, and visit. This is a must do tour!

Ahmed was a great tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and made it very easy to understand the history and culture of Sarajevo and Bosnia Herzegovina as a whole. I would highly recommend this tour to learn about the culture, structure, and historic sites of Sarajevo.
