Overview

Can You imagine 4 years of siege? Four long years without elementary supplies, four years under the bombs, four years with no sun in the sky? Visiting the main war points will tell You the story by themselves words will not be needed. Sarajevo was under the occupation for very long time, and marks are still visible all around the town. We try to keep it as a monument and great reminder of what shell never happen again!
Sarajevo was occupied by each side of the city during the siege and the area was completely blocked. Since there was no way to reach free territory and in order to provide elementary existence supplies, some kind of solution had to be provided. That is exactly what happened! The story about the Tunnel, short movie made during the war period and the Tunnel construction, all those Museum items, collected during the war, and the whole surrounding area will give You a clear image how did Sarajevo survive the greatest siege in human history!

    The tour was insightful and interesting. Our guide, Jenna, collected us on time at our hotel and brought us around the city, pointing out various sights before reaching the tunnel itself. It's difficult to believe that the siege happened such a short time ago. Jenna is from Sarajevo, her personal stories and those of her family made it all the more moving and emotional. Cannot recommend this tour enough. Afterwards, Jenna took us to a viewing point for coffee , a chat and to overlook the stunning city of Sarajevo. We will remember this forever.

    We signed up for a private tour and found that there were two other people in the group to make a total of four. Otherwise this tour is five stars all the way. Amina was extremely passionate about the topic sharing her wartime experiences. We saw more than expected from the tunnel to the cemetery to a panorama of the city. Amina was great answering questions of everyone in the group and individuals at the various sites. She permitted us much time to walk the bobsled track from the 1984 Olympics and took pictures of us coming down. What a thoroughly enjoyable day.

    Highlight of the trip, our guide took us to a number of important sights around the city, something you wouldn’t get from one of the ‘free tours’. Can’t recommend enough.

    Dzenana is a bubbly and chippy guide who made us feel very welcomed. The tour was informative and interactive as we get to ask questions that gave us answers from real life experiences.We've learnt so many things about Sarajevo's rich culture and history through her sharing. The stories from the past have touched our hearts so deeply, and we wouldn't have understand it better if not for Dzenana. She has her unique way in making us feel comfortable throughout the trip and it felt like she was more of a friend than a guide to us. Thank you, Dzenana and Invictatravel for making our trip to BiH a very memorable one!

    This tour was one of the highlights on my recent trip to Sarajevo. Our tour guide, Edin, was so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly throughout the whole tour. We saw many different interesting things and heard lots of stories that only a local could know. Edin added a personal touch by talking about his family, his upbringing and their experiences during the war. Highly recommended!
