“lukomir”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

i visited lukomir with Samer in the end of november. i was very happy, that green visions still organized the tour. our day was great, Samer took really good care of me and my little daughter inari (1 year). he had even bought special food for her. we had a private tour. Samer has a really good knowledge about nature, history and he has a good contact with local people. the company seems to really take care of nature, ecology and the reputation of the whole country. good value for money!

“Excellent guides, fantastic activities”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Just spent two days hiking and another two days cycling in the mountains near to Sarajevo organised by Green Visions and I can't praise them highly enough. All the staff were incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic with an obvious passion for the outdoors. The areas we visited had absolutely spectacular scenery and everything was organised to make the most of enjoyable and pleasant routes. I know Sarajevo reasonably well and had no idea it was possible to cycle from their office in an ordinary suburb straight to forested mountains where the Olympic bobsled run is! As a young (ish!) woman travelling alone I felt in very safe hands and would definitely get in touch with these guys again.

Hi Steph,

Every time you went out with the guys it looked like it would rain cats and dogs. Every time you came back you had a big smile on your face. I know Samer and Faruk were really impressed with how well you stood the cold weather. Actually, they were more than impressed and attributed your hardiness too the fact that you're an outdoor enthusiast and Scottish :)

Thank you for your great feedback and have a wonderful holiday season.

Cheers from all of us at Green Visions,

Thierry

“A holiday-changing experience”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Green Visions are the type of agency that you should always look for when organising a holiday: they are specialised, knowledgeable, kind, flexible, and take you to places which you would not normally get to on your own. In particular we organised a trip to Lukomir (and Umoljani the night before) with them; our guide was Samer: we had an amazing time (we were also lucky with the weather though): Samer shares our own passion for travel as a way to see things and meet real people, he introduced us to the locals, we had a walk around the mountains of Lukomir, he is authoritative and knows what he is talking about but also fun to spend time with, he is respected by the local communities because they know him and know what he is doing for them. We have had an excellent experience overall, obviously it comes at "european" and not at "bosnian" prices, but it's absolutely worth it, we are always willing to pay for real skill

“Lukomir mountain village walk”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This was a brilliant excursion from Sarajevo! The 45 minute drive through troubled suburbs, ski resort and dramatic mountain passes was made even better by a residents' perspective commentary on recent history - something all visitors to Sarajevo should hear. Our Guide Darmil was very knowledgeable and happy to share his thoughts! The ancient village - about the only one left in tact after the war - was fascinating. Still a working village with 40 families. The mountain walk was moderately challenging on a hot day but views over the mountains and canyon were amazing and Darmil's lunch hit the spot. Only drawback was that a couple of the group weren't really prepared for the tough walk and it meant we had to slow right down and keep stopping. It would help perhaps if it was made clear that the terrain might be a bit tough.

“Green Visions - Great Experience!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We did a day trip from BiH to Lukomir Village. It was incredibly interesting to see the village life and we really enjoyed ourselves hiking. Our guide, Lawrence, encouraged us to take advantage of being with a 'local' all day and patiently answered all our questions about BiH. It was very intersting and a great way to learn about the place. This is a must if you are in Sarajevo!

Hi Erin,

I Know It's been awhile since you visited Bosnia and posted your review. You were one of the first to ever rate our services here on TripAdvisor. Since then many travelers have joined us on our Lukomir trip. In fact it has become or most popular one.

Thank you for setting the example and for sharing your experience with the rest of the world.

It really maters to us.

Best,

Thierry
