Full description
Join this popular 3-hour coach tour of Sarajevo to learn what Sarajevans lived through from 1992-1995 during the Balkan wars. Start the tour by visiting the Yellow fortress and the Maternity hospital. On your way to the war tunnel,  pass through the notorious sniper alley, the most dangerous street in the city. Visit the cemetery of the heroes who stood unarmed in defence of their city, and gave their lives for its freedom. Find out what life was like without food, water, electricity, and gas, how children kept up with their school work, and what the cultural and sports life was like in the middle of war. Many of the guides have personal experience of the war and will tell you about the collapse of Yugoslavia, the war’s aims, and the plans for the division of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Visit the Tunnel Museum via Sniper Alley, to learn about the tunnel’s role during the siege. Find out about the role of UN forces in Sarajevo, and the mistakes they committed during the conflict. To finish the tour, visit the famous Tunnel of Hope, a secret war passage that helped the citizens survive the four year long siege.

Eye Opener - our Guide Mr. Nermin should write a book!

Our guide Nermin was excellent. He survived the war and explained to us what happened during the siege with first hand information. He answered all our questions and we even had enough time to have some deeper introspection on the war. Sarajevo is a city where multi-faith could mingle peacefully.

Our guide, Nermin, had many interesting things to tell us obout the war in Sarajevo. He experience the war himself and it was very interesting to listen to him and joinong him on a tour of the City. The most exciting thing was that we got to walk some meters of the tunnel of hope.

In perfektem Deutsch hat Mohamed extrem viel Interessantes erzählt. Obschon ich über ein gutes geschichtliches Vorwissen verfüge, erfuhr ich viele neue Einzelheiten, welche man nirgends lesen kann, ging auf all meine Fragen ein, berichtete über persönliche Erfahrungen. Das Tempo der Tour war optimal, nicht zu schnell, nicht zu langsam. Danke seinem Fahrzeug gelangte ich an Orte, welche ich zu Fuss nicht erreicht hätte. Spannend! Absolut empfehlenswert. Der Preis der Tour hat sich wirklich gelohnt!
