We really enjoyed the experience as a whole. Having a tour guide that had actually lived through what was being told to us really made a difference. You absolutely must go on this tour and with Amina. It will be an experience you will never forget and one that will change your life.

Excellent tour

The tour was fantastic due to our excellent guide, who provided us with a lot of information in an easy to understand fashion. Driving around Sarajevo she was able to point out significant places and the reason for their significance. The visit to the tunnel was a highlight, we liked the simple way it was presented. Her and her families experiences of the Siege were interwoven throughout the tour and this greatly enhanced our experience. We appreciated her honesty and the personal insights she gave us. Well done.

He treated it with a lot of respect and gave us his own personal story and opinions as well which made it more personal and was much appreciated. Would 100% recommend, especially with Edin and we would definitely consider doing another tour with him in the future x
