A must do if you visit Sarajevo. Best tour I have ever been on. This tour was an amazing experience. The guide, Eddie, was very knowledgeable, and super nice. He answered all of my questions. Unlike the other tours that I have been to in Europe, the entirety of this tour was jam packed with information regarding the Bosnia war with Serbia. The guide transported you to different areas of Sarajevo so you could experience key points in the history. It was very moving. In addition to really opening my eyes as to the full scale atrocities suffered by the Bosnian people and the heroism of the population of Sarajevo during the seige, this tour was also a great way to see the city. You even get to visit the old Olympic bobsled track with amazing views of Sarajevo (this is one area where the Serb army was encamped and had strategic positions) In addition to Eddie, the other gentleman in the office was also super nice. I highly recommend and have not one complaint.
The tour was excellent, well organized and complete. Edin (the guide) was very passionate and knowledgeable about the Sarajevo siege and made a very comprehensive introduction of the causes leading to the conflict. The visit of the tunnel museum was very interesting, as well as the visit to the bobsleight track, Jewish cemetery and yellow fortress, where impressive views of the city were observed. A truly recomendable experience that you must not miss if you go to Sarajevo.
Such a fascinating insight into the war in the 1990s. The Tunnel of Hope was such a fascinating feat by many who miraculously built this tunnel to assist the people of Sarajevo. Ingenious! We were also taken to the site of the Winter Olympics and the bobsledding and luge tracks. The old Jewish Cemetery made us realise the diversity of religions that make Sarajevo. To top the afternoon was the late afternoon/night view of Sarajevo from the Yellow fort.
Our tour guide Edin gave us a unforgettable afternoon, he was friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable. He was born in the war and with his help, we learned more about the war, how people suffered, and most importantly, the fact that nothing can take over love and dignity from our lives. I would recommend this tour to all visitors who come to Sarajevo!
The Under Siege tour far exceeded expectations and we highly recommend it! Eddin is an exceptional tour guide. He is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate and was able to teach us about a very difficult and complex topic. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. We were so happy with our experience we even signed up for another tour!
