We had a car and a map of the location of the tunnels but after reading other reviews we decided to take an organised tour. We are pleased we did. It would be possible to visit the museum in 20 minutes and be totally underwhelmed by the whole experience. We took the Tunnel Tour offered by Insider information centre (easy... More

I visited on Insider's tour, Misfortunes of War (see my separate review of Insider Tours) and found it very worthwhile. I still ask myself how I could not have known more about the siege of Sarajevo at the time it happened. This tunnel is a grim reminder of how harsh life was and how strong was the determination of the... More

5 stars awarded to the war tunnel are also due to the insider city tours with whom we booked this experience. We never usually go for organized tours but this time it is a must - you will be guided through the tunnel by someone from Sarajevo who lived through the siege and the information you will receive is priceless....

A very long "escape" underground tunnel used during the 1990s war. You cannot go in the tunnel but can go in a small replica.

It is worth it to visit the war tunnel. The young people may be will pass through without feeling anything but the older generation will surely remember the news and the pictures of the civil war in former Yugoslavia at that time and a cold blood will run through them

I wasn't sure about visiting the war tunnel but was really glad that I did. Do get a guide. Ours was terrific and was able to explain the strategic importance of the tunnel at a time when the city and it's people were experiencing severe hardship. The section of tunnel that you can walk through is small but enough to... More

We have heard and read a lot about the tunnel, so we expected something more. The actual tunnel you can walk in, is just 15m long and we felt like we were misled. There is a very interesting but small collection of items and photos inside the house, but if more than 8-10 people are inside at the same moment,... More

Did a guided tour organised by our hostel. A must see if in Sarajevo. The house and history is very interesting. You also get to walk through a small section of the tunnel.

not sure what we were expecting, but felt a bit underwhelmed. there was very little information there--you really needed a guided tour, but it's not a place you need to spend more than 15 minutes visiting.
