Great tour, with small groups and a very knowledgeable guide, Ibrahim(apologies if that's spelled incorrectly!). The tour provides transport, makes it much more accessible to visit the sights such as The Tunnel Museum and the abandoned hotel on the hills of Sarajevo, which was a personal highlight for me. Ibrahim was friendly, spoke good English and had a lot of information to give, as well as being happy to answer our questions. If you're in Sarajevo I strongly recommend doing this tour to get an insight into the cities' recent history.

Good tour! Agan was very knowledgeable, reflected and good at answering even complicated questions. It was obvious he was very experienced and sincerely interested in history. The stop at the Olympic bobsled facility was a bit out of focus and not very interesting. However, I would definitely recommend the tour.

Long day, left at 7 a.m. and not yet arrived at 7:30 p.m., but at least we have time at each stop, 45 mn in Pocitelj, 45 mn of guided tour + 2h30 of free time in Mostar and 1h45 in Kravica. Reasonable time spent at borders. Perfect guides.

The tour was excellent and Ibrahim was a great guide

An impressive trip and a very knowledgeable guide.
