    We had a fantastic time during this easy going walking tour. It covered all the city highlights and gave us a much rounded perspective on the history of Bosnia. Special thanks to our guide Faruk for sharing his personal and family's history of the war and life in Bosnia. We were so grateful for his knowledge and warmth!

    Excellent two hour walking tour run privately with just me and the guide. Covered all of the main sights of the old town, but if you want to visit the museums and interiors of mosques and churches, you will need to return in your own time. Definitely recommended.

    This was a fantastic tour. Informative, friendly, enjoyable and touching. This tour opened our eyes to a greater understanding of the city and Bosnia. Our fantastic tour guide Jeny was fun, warm and welcoming. She covered all of the key historic attractions in Sarajevo. It was clear that she has a very in-depth understanding of the history of the city and takes great pride in her roots. We highly recommend this tour!
