About Balkantina
Balkantina is the unique gastro-cultural agency and tour operator launched in 2016 in Sarajevo by the small team of foodies that wanted to reveal and share the hidden culinary and cultural treasures in the off-the-beaten-path areas of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the whole Balkan region. There is one thing we are the most passionate about, and which every person needs on holiday: food! Besides learning about the history, culture, architecture during our events, city tours, day trips and multi-country trips we at Balkantina designed the offerings to let our guests taste local gastronomy and learn how to cook local dishes. Balkantina also operates the Food Concept Store, the first place of this kind in Sarajevo, which offers a unique selection of local delicacies - superB wine, brandy, fine cheese, truffle products and fresh truffles, prosciutto, eco jams and much more. At the Shop you will also find perfect gift bundles so you can bring a taste of the Balkans back home!

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.

This is a lovely way to get closer to Sarajevo and its people. I really enjoyed strolling around the city's less touristy places, taking in the culture through traditional food. A perfect activity!

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! Amanda and Denis

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!
