Fantastic Tour - This was an amazing tour from start to finish. Ago was an incredibly knowledgable guide and was able to answer all of our questions as we learned about the horrors of the fall of Yugoslavia in Bosnia. The tour is very sobering and can feel heavy at times, but definitely worth it.

Sarajevo and Fall of Yugoslavia tours - Both the Sarajevo city tour (Arna) and Fall of Yugoslavia tour (Adnan) were superb. Both guides are hugely knowledgeable and cover an immense amount of subject matter with great skill and energy.

Informative and hearthbreaking tour - The tour almost take 4 hours and briefly we saw tons of things about the war, its cruelty and hard times from 1991. The tour is very informative, our guide is directly born during the war. The stories are sad and heartbreaking but I believe that everyone needs to witness the recent history

Amazing tour - Incredible tour guided by Emin whose knowledge is extremely comprehensive and based on experience of growing up in turbulent times. He’s a young man born in 92 and passionate about the history of Bosnia and Sarajevo in particular. There is no question he can’t answer. A great ambassador for the country. The tour took in some incredible sights and we learned so much. We would encourage anyone visiting this extraordinary city to take the tour. You see and learn so much. Emin and the driver are wonderful as is

Never forget! - Emmen, our tour guide was fantastic. We were amazed by his deep knowledge of every single aspect about the Sarajevo war and all other details regarding the fall of Yugoslavia and the Tunnel of Hope . We loved his impecable and proper English. The respectful way he explains/narrates the history took us back in time in such a vivid way. Emmen was capable to answer every single question asked during the tour. This experience is the right /perfect way to teach us, tourists, not to forget and allow us to spread the word. Every tourist visiting Bosnia & Herzegovina, should take this memorable tour.

Fall of Yugoslavia Tour January 2024 - Almedina was a brilliant tour guide and very helpful and informative. It was great to hear about the history of Bosnia and Sarajevo, especially given the recent past. I learned alot from Almedina about the war/food/.culture/ olympics. Loved visiting the Tunnel of hope as would been too far to travel on my own
