Vedad, our tour guide, was lovely, and we learned so much from him - about traditional Bosnian foods and history. We then had a special session with the owner of Balkantina about local products, wine, liquors and more.I highly recommend this tour for anyone new to Sarajevo - it was a great in-depth introduction to the city and its culture.

My girlfriend and I were trying to find my old high school when we stumbled upon Balkantina. What caught my eye was were the four letters B E E R. We went inside to do what we thought would be window shopping and left booking a tour with Lana. The next day when we arrived, Lana was waiting for us and we began our walk. We were given a tour that gave us a sense of what it means to buy and eat food in Sarajevo — we went to an outdoor food market housed in an old Austria-Hungarian building, ate fresh made pita, and then finished it off at an restaurant where all the food was pre made, but tasted like a home cooked meal. Lana was a delight, as she gave us deep backgrounds of the foods, and what it means to live in Sarajevo today.

Do yourself a favor and book a tour!

I had a fantastic time on this tour! We walked to several different markets, restaurants and historical points in Sarajevo to learn more about the food culture and history. Our guide was very knowledgeable and welcoming; it felt like hanging out with a friend for the afternoon! We got to sample different types of Bosnian pie, stuffed vegetables and other delicious items. The portions were meal-sized so come hungry and you will leave full of food and knowledge!

Lana was an excellent guide who gave us a good blend of food knowledge and history. The food was very flavoursome (and substantial) and it allowed us to get an accurate insight into what and how the locals eat. I would highly recommend this tour.

I’ve done many food tours across Europe, and this was one of my favorites. Sarajevo is an unexpectedly wonderful city with a rich and complex history. My guide Lana was knowledgeable about both food and Sarajevo/Bosnia history, and spoke wonderful English. She was able to clearly articulate thoughtful answers to all of my questions, food related and otherwise. The food was also great…be sure to go hungry. I highly recommend!

This is just the food tour we were looking for! We've done the old town walking tour. We've tried the touristy burek and cevapi places, and we wanted to know a bit more about how the majority of the locals eat. We got that along with a little more local history and walking into parts of the city not covered by old town tours.

What I want to do is come back and have a hands-on session making burek so that I have a lasting souvenir to take back to the USA. Tell me when!

This is a gastro tour operator and delicatessen shop, promoting local products from little producers of BiH. You don't want to miss it.
We booked a very interesting 3 hours food and city tour and our lovely guide Emina, so professional and passionate, told us lots of stories about the city, its history and of course the food, essential element in every culture.
We finished in the shop where we could taste some amazing local products that you can buy (make great presents and souvenirs). All the guys working there are passionate and will tell everything they know about their products.
Absolutely recommended!

My guide Emina was an absolute delight and we had a great tour eating our way around Sarajevo and me getting history, stories, and background to the city. We started at the dairy market and I tasted lots of Bosnian cheeses and cured meats, all delicious. We had 3 types of burek, interestingly drunk with yoghurt in Bosnia. We also had a chicken soup with great Bosnian bread, and lots of fab meat filled vegetables. I don’t know the names of them all, but it was all delicious. I was stuffed full by the end and could not even eat much of the cheese and bread and wine that you get at the tour company's office at the end. That bit was really interesting too, because they have a wine and cheese shop at the agency, where you can buy produce. I loved this tour.

First of all, I want to thank Dalidi and her guides, because I met them from Sarajevo at a new angle. I learned more about the rich history of this city, but also ate really delicious food. The guides were there for all our questions. I highly recommend this tour to everyone.

I ended up solo on this tour with my guide, Emina, and had a terrific experience learning about both the culture of Sarajevo as well as the culinary traditions. Emina was very friendly and knowledgeable about all of the aspects covered on the tour. The food and drinks were all very good and I was able to eat more than my fill. In fact, I was even able to bring home some leftovers. When I wasn't eating tasty Bosnian food I was learning about the fascinating history of Sarajevo and the cultural diversity that gives the city its unique character. Overall, I really enjoyed all aspects of the tour and the time just flew by. I highly recommend it. Thanks again to Emina, who was a great guide!
