My guide Ibrahim was a very nice guy. He new a lot about all the places we visited and was excited to share the stories. He also helped me with some practical issues regarding my visit to Sarajevo.

Recommendation!
Aug 2021
The Siege Tour was great, it was definitely worth it.
It was really interesting to see the different scenes with a contemporary witness of the war. Danijela explained everything to me, answered my questions very openly and showed me around great. I am very grateful for this encounter!
I can really recommend the tours with "Info Bosnia Tours" to everyone. I always had an unforgettable time with very special, friendly and warm guides. The office is also very accommodating and questions are answered quickly - just great.

A must do in Sarajevo!

We loved this tour! Wow. It was a great way to experience the breath of devastation. It would not have been possible for us to see as much without our knowledgable driver and guide. We learned so much. I highly recommend this for anyone visiting the wonderful city of Sarajevo. Thank you.

Wonderful morning - educational and entertaining
Jul 2021 • Couples
We had a great tour with Asim. He knew the history of the country and war inside out and dealt with all our questions very well and with a sense of humour. He balanced being a guide and being a nice guy appropriately and stopped for us to get food when we were hungry, taking our photos and even helping us with the itinerary for our whole trip. He also dropped us off at a shoe shop at the end as we had to buy some walking boots. Would thoroughly recommend. Ian & Liv, UK.

Magnificient Siege War Tour Experience
Jul 2021 • Couples
I recommend this tour to everyone! The tour guide had a lot of information about the history of the war. Rather than a one sided lecture it was an interactive conversation where the tour guide kept the audience alive. Supporting materials like maps and mini clips were extremly helpful and made it so easy for the audience to follow the events.

Trebevic and the yellow fortress provide a great city view, it was a joy to behold. The walk down from Trebevic is an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful nature of Sarajevo. Jewish cemetry and sniper valley were also great.

If you visit Sarajevo, you should take this tour!

This tour is a must! Thanks to the best guide!
Jul 2021
This tour is a must! We visited many sites such as the Tunnel of Hope, the Jewish Cemetery, the Olympic bobsleigh track, and the Yellow Fortress which has an amazing panoramic view of the city. Our tour guide, Asim from Info Bosnia, couldn't have been any better! He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Bosnia Herzegovina. The tour was very interactive as we were able to ask questions at any time. Asim was also very generous with his time, after the tour ended he invited us to his office and suggested other places to visit and answered further questions from us.
