What people are saying about Sarajevo
What an EXTRAORDINARY and wonderful tour with many beautiful stops on the way! We got a lovely breakfast. History is explained simple, sweet and short. Really awesome that you have a couple of hours to yourself in Mostar. Management of time is to a T! Really excellent. Cannot stress that enough!! We would not have been able to experience all this in one day had we planned it on our own. If you wish to experience a lot in one day but at a nice and slow comfortable pace this tour is THE one for you! We booked this tour literally last minute and Info Bosnia Tour is easy to communicate with, prompt, very flexible and extremely friendly. We honestly enjoyed this way more than expected! Ahmed our guide was just brilliant! Great energy, genuine, incredibly knowledgeable, intelligent and super funny! He answered any questions we had and was very respectful. We had so much fun, learned a lot and felt safe throughout the entire trip! We had an AMAZING time! Book it you won't regret it! :)
Vidokrug's Private Tour of Sarajevo and Mostar includes a great itinerary and Besam, my tour guide, made it a wonderful experience. Despite my booking the tour the night before, Besam arrived promptly and cheerfully at 6 am, which made it pleasant from start. Besam, whose English is perfect, conveyed a great deal of fascinating information as part of a conversation rather than a lecture. He convinced me to climb to top of the mosque in Mostar by persuading me that the view was worth overcoming my fear of heights and reassuring me that he would help me do it. A local guide lead an amazing tour of Sarajevo, including the Tunnel of Hope, the 1984 Winter Olympics sites, and the bridge where the Archduke's assassination sparked WWI. After a delicious and authentic dinner, we had a pleasant discussion while Besam expertly drove the curvy route home. At the end, I felt like I was saying good-bye to a friend. I plan to take Vidokrug's private 2-day Albania tour guided by Besam.
This was an excellent and informative tour where one gets a very thorough presentation of the experiences of the war in Sarajevo, particularly from civilian perspectives. Our guide Edin was a wealth of information and he provided a very well-structured, easy-to-follow presentation. The Tunnel of Hope was extremely interesting, and combined with the other tour destinations provided an excellent overview of what was going on during the war. The bobsled/luge track was also very interesting, particularly when one thinks that this track was the height of such technology just prior to the 1984 Olympics and then subjected to the destructive forces of the war. Very worth while taking this tour.
My tour guide Adin, quite an intelligent and interesting person, walked me though all the landmark places and shared the stories behind them in a fascinating way. The trip helped me understand a lot about the place and made it even more exciting to explore it further. In a short amount of time you get to know more than you would definitely on your own, it is actually pushes you to dig in even deeper. For such a historically significant place, tour guide is a must!
Our guide, Edin, was born during the War. He told us personal stories of what his family had to do to survive. He drove us to important spots in and around the city that helped to explain the conflict. It was an unbelievably emotional experience. I feel such respect for these people and what they went through in those four years. I feel after visiting Sarajevo I will never be the same.
