It was a great display and a must-see. Other reviews can provide you with details but... If you're planning to take transit, you'll have to walk about 4 kms through some back country roads that aren't on google maps; however, seeing those farm-houses littered with bullet-holes really helped provide me with context for what I was about to see.

Interesting to visit the tunnel - but a chat with Abid in the book shop next door made the visit a highlight. A wonderfully modest hero who was one those heroes keeping Sarajevo supplied through the tunnel

I visited on my own and didn't ask for a guide. Nonetheless very clear and interesting explanations of the lead up to war and the lives and hardships of locals in relatively recent times. Great to walk though a short passage of tunnel. Airport just alongside the museum fence so reality of situation in the 90s very obvious. Small souvenir... More

Very interesting to see this and learn about the war and siege. Be sure to ask questions and have someone explain the history and politics behind the events.

I have been there couple of times. At first it was kept by the Kolar family which owns the house where the digging took place. Then it was taken by the authorities and lately I saw that they added maps and screening films in halls with chairs - That is the right way to treat such an important site

BiH Spirit, the tour guide office based just behind the cathedral in Sarajevo, organised this tour to the 'Tunnel of Hope'. The Tunnel was dug during the siege of Sarajevo (1992-1995) to bring food and medicine to the city. The tour offers a real and very poignant glimpse of life in the city at this time, and the resilience and... More

There are many tourist agencies in the old town offering the tour to this tunnel around 15€. Only one place charge 50€ but includes Nato Camp and other areas. I made the reservation for the private tour guide but somehow I couldn't see the woman on time. I tried to find another and the tour is not always held by... More

Amazing, our tour guide was a survivor and his story was inspiring. Seeing this made everything so real and really hit home how devastating and hard it must have been.

What a great story of human achievement and strength. This tunnel helped to save many thousands(millions?) of Bosnian lives. Only 10 marks to get in, that's £3.50. You must pay in marks as it is government run, that's the same for all museums. Tucked away north of the airport part of this tunnel is still open and a guided tour... More

We are 2 couples who did a 4 hour tour with Enes from Spirit BiH. It wasn't our first tour in Sarajevo but it was by far the best one. Enes was really knowledgeable, dynamic, spoke very well in English and was a lot of fun. We went to the Tunnel of Love near the Airport first and then to... More
