I echo the many justified positive comments here. The tour of Sarajevo is breathtakingly good, not least because it is possible to see and truly feel the recent history of the siege and the city’s rebirth. It isn’t dusty history, but nor was this a pessimistic experience either.

This tour is conceptualized in a way to help you better understand what happened to this city and what is the better way than to hear it from a local survivor first handed. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and we would love to see the pictures you took.
