This has been an incredibly meaningful and enjoyable journey. Our guide, Samir, is extremely passionate and knowledgeable (he graduated from the History Department of the University of Sarajevo). Along the way, he introduced us to the history, politics, and religion of Bosnia and Herzegovina, while also sharing many of his intriguing thoughts with us. As for the journey itself, we admired the 500-year-old bridge and visited the timber town near the Serbian border, and even rode on a distinctive sightseeing train. If you ever have the chance to visit Sarajevo, be sure to set aside a day to join Samir's tour. You'll learn many stories about this mysterious Balkan country that aren't mentioned on Wikipedia or any tour guide book.

We had an amazing time on this tour. We were glad to have a day off driving and appreciate ld not having to drive over the Serbia border. Our guide was very friendly with a vast historical and cultural knowledge of Bosnia and Serbia and the tension that has existed. We enjoyed the movie sets but the train ride was the best part and having a rest day from driving. We were especially moved by the stories of his life and the tho gs he had to do during the war times. Thank you for sharing that. Bosnia is a beautiful place to go.

A thoroughly enjoyable & interesting trip with a knowledgeable & accommodating guide. Amer was extremely friendly & professional & made the trip wonderful.

The tour was packed with wonderful experiences and impressions. Adnan, the guide, made sure we wouldn't miss anything without hovering.

thanks to Amer for the wonderful trip in the north of Bosnia and Serbia
