Sarajevo is a city where great empires ruled and left marks all over the country.

    Fantastic Jenny

    This was a fantastic tour. Informative, friendly, enjoyable and touching. This tour opened our eyes to a greater understanding of the city and Bosnia. Our fantastic tour guide Jeny was fun, warm and welcoming. She covered all of the key historic attractions in Sarajevo. It was clear that she has a very in-depth understanding of the history of the city and takes great pride in her roots. We highly recommend this tour!

    Low prices and lots of variety

    I give a rare 5 star rating to a walking tour of downtown Sarajevo. This section of the city is a mix of Ottoman and European culture, food, and architecture. You can see the bridge where WWI started with a gun shot. The smell of fresh coffee permeates the air. You can good cevapi on fresh bread. The streets are stone and you can walk the streets free of vehicular traffic. There are lots of small gift shops and the exchange rate is very favorable if you are from the US, so your buck goes much farther than other countries using the Euro. You can use either US dollars, Euros, or Bosnian currency for purchases at most places.

    Excellent

    Excellent two hour walking tour run privately with just me and the guide. Covered all of the main
    sights of the old town, but if you want to visit the museums and interiors of mosques and churches, you
    will need to return in your own time. Definitely recommended.

  • Emilee - US
    Great experience - definitely a tour worth taking!

    Our tour guide Edin was absolutely amazing. He had a great knowledge of city and was able bring incredible perspective. He was shared both personal stories as well as history. It was just three of us on the tour so we were able to ask a ton of questions which was very nice. We would highly recommend him as your tour guide. We were able to cover almost all of the major land marks in Sarajevo. We went when the weather was less than ideal but Edin was super accommodating and made sure to make the most of the tour. On a side note: Edin’s English was perfect that was also very convenient!!

    Bellissima passeggiata

    Abbiamo passeggiato in 2 con Faruk un ragazzo gentilissimo e molto preparato che ci ha fatto conoscere la città e la sua storia in una rilassante passeggiata a piedi. Vale la pena. Scoprirete la storia ma anche la quotidianità di questa splendida città e questo bellissimo stato. Da fare!!!

  • George - Russia
    Fantastic city - high professional guide

    That was my first experience with booked via Internet walking city tours. I am totally satisfied! Many thanks to my guide, a young, but high professional person. He deeply knows history of Sarajevo and what is very important to a guide he can share his interest, visions, feelings etc. etc. with guests. He made Sarajevo, its diversity, its picturesqueness, its charm and spirit much much closer to me. After today lecture I do want to return here in future to make my knowledge of the Bosnian land deeper.

    Terrific way to spend time in Sarajevo!

    Our guide Dzenana was fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable, funny and passionate about her city and its history. Our group of 5 (we were the only ones on the two-hour walking tour that morning) had a wonderful time with a perfect introduction to the city with a great historical overview, as well as introduction to shopping and commercial highlights. This was a great bargain compared to other walking tours we have taken, and cannot recommend it enough!

    Great value

    We’re so glad we booked this tour of Sarajevo. Although brief it gave us a clearer understanding of this city and its history that can only be expressed by someone who grew up there. Our guide did a wonderful job. A terrific value!
