What people are saying about Sarajevo

When you are in Sarajevo, you must book and experience this guided tour. I recommend it with my whole heart to everyone. Medrin, our guide, shared precious and invaluable insights. Visiting the museum without a guide does not give you any context nor enlightenment (pls do not do it). He is sincere, natural, does his utmost best and stays objective, by giving stats and facts but also human and sensitive and understanding all parties involved. He is a great man and proud of his beautiful city with all its ethnicities and religions living in harmony together. Medrin brings you to the museum and back (to Oldtown) and while you are in his van he continues by guiding and informing you while passing by the numerous highlights and giving it its background. If it were possible, I would give him 100 stars!

This tour was everything we could have possibly wanted and the highlight of our two week Balkan trip. Safet is an amazing person and I am so thankful to have had the pleasure of meeting him and learning about Sarajevo/Bosnia through his eyes. He truly cares about people and making the tour a special experience. I recommend this tour and Safet 100%. Throughout the entire day, Safet made sure we were comfortable and getting the experience that we wanted. We learned so much about Sarajevo/Bosnia and will always cherish this special day.
