Owner description: When we first started providing guiding services in Sarajevo in 2000, there were just a few of us. We were full of enthusiasm, creative ideas and ready to work hard, apply effort and learn. With the passage of time some of us went on different paths, finding different business spheres, but those who stayed, they stayed completely the same - creative, professional and dedicated to something they like. Actually, today we are 15 years older and during the time, we hope that we have gained more experience and become smarter which is not insignificant. All of these years brought us a lot of friendships, business contacts, meeting with many important people and delegations. We can proudly say that any important event in Sarajevo during the last decade wasn't without us. We just want it to be the same. We want our guests to become and remain our friends, to visit us again, and once they leave our city or country they should take away with themselves only positive memories. The mission of Insider is satisfied guest and visitor and in order to fulfill this we will give our best to meet the expectations and even more of any guest who decides to give us their time. We guarantee that with the Insiders you will always get more than you'd expect.

We thoroughly enjoyed the "Times of Misfortune" tour. Our guide had a huge depth and breadth of knowledge and the perspective of having lived through the Bosnian War. His English was excellent. The tunnel was a particular highlight as was the guide's insight into life in Sarajevo.

I would highly recommend this tour to any travellers to Sarajevo.

I visited Sarajevo two days ago. It was the best day trip where I was. For this is a very creditable Fuad our guide from Insider City Tours. With his vast knowledge and serenity we describe Sarajevo in the best possible way. Thanks a lot for Fuad and all people from Sarajevo to one of the best days of my life.

We have visited Sarajevo about one month ago, the tour was done by a guide named Fuad, he was probably one of the best tour guides I have ever had a pleasure to meet. His devotion to this profession is stunning. The tour of city of Sarajevo will always stay in our minds as one of the best tours we have ever been to! Thanks a lot!

Arriving in Sarajevo early in the morning off the overnight train, we felt disorientated until we stumbled upon the Insider office. Mohamed and Samra were incredibly friendly and helpful, greeting us like old friends, suggesting hostels for us and making us feel generally welcome to their city. When we mentioned we were interested in a tour of the city, they told us of Insider's free city tour, which Mohamed took later that evening and gave a fascinating insight into Sarajevo from the days of the Ottoman era, through the Austro-Hungarian empire and the more recent conflict. It was made particularly special by Mohamed's own stories, and his enthusiasm for his home of Sarajevo was inspiring, convincing us that one day in this astonishing city was not nearly enough!! The following day, Samra took the Times of Misfortune tour; she gave us a real insight into the war, including her own experiences and answering our many questions, leaving us with the feeling that we understood a lot more that when we started.

Thank you Mohamed and Samra for making our stay in Sarajevo so memorable!

My friend and I took the 'Times of Misfortune' tour. It was very informative and interesting, showing major sites involved in the Siege of Sarajevo. The tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable, open, honest. Recommend this tour for anyone who visits Sarajevo.
