Where do I even begin? We're so thankful that Sarajevo Funky Tours exists. We experienced so much thanks to them. All of it was so incredible. It was informative, eye-opening, and more than I can put into words. In fact, it makes me feel completely inept at writing to try to put words to the experiences we had. We laughed, we cried, and we laughed some more. We learned about politics, history, geography, division, unity, languages, cruelty, kindness and most of all, the resilience of the human heart.
We went on 3 tours with Sarajevo Funky Tours (Free Walking Tour and Local Food Tasting, Sarajevo Total Seige Tour, and Understanding Srebenica Genocide), and can't wait to come back and do more tours with them. While 10 and 11 hour tours might sound long, the time flies by, and you're left wanting more. We would gladly spend 40+ more hours with Funky Tours. Guides were all terrific. We felt like we were spending time with good friends. Special mention to Saudin and Almir, who added so much to our Srebenica experience with both humor and poetry - they are fantastic together. We will be back!
We did the Srebenica tour on the busiest day of the year, the July 11th anniversary, and thanks to Armina, we had an incredible experience meeting museum curator and genocide survivor, Hasan Hasanović. The work he is doing is so important.
Everyone we met at Funky Tours (Ema, Adnan, Damir, and those whose names we didn't get...) was friendly, warm, and helpful. They truly want you to know Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina as it is, and it is a wonderful place.
Besides their amazing staff, another thing that sets them apart is their commitment to a personal experience, evidenced by the fact that they keep their groups small. We are usually not tour people and prefer to discover things on our own, but this company was a huge exception, and we'd highly recommend them.
Sarajevo itself is now one of our favorite cities, and Bosnia is a beautiful country with so much to see and do.
Thank you so much to everyone at Funky Tours!
