A great tour! I really enjoyed every minute. Since nobody but me seemed to have the courage to face the seven-hour tour in midsummer, I had a private tour. Elvis, the tour guide, was great: competent, friendly and attentive. I can really recommend him unreservedly. And the tour itself is awesome if you want to see more than just Bascarsija. Culture meets nature meets sport meets the city's recent history. For those who don't have much time but want to see more!

We have travelled to many places over the world and this "Best of Sarajevo" tour is one the best tours we have ever experienced. We got an excellent information on this exceptional history and we recommend this tour for everyone visiting Sarajevo. What a day :-)
