Our guide was a soldier who’d served under the siege and it was great to hear first hand testimony. It was a moving tour but one that I think all should experience.

Our tour guide Damir picked us up in the morning. We were taken to several locations in Sarajevo that were key during the war in the 1990's. Damir was well informed and interesting to listen to. He told us about family and friends that lived through the war in Sarajevo. It was an interesting and educational morning. Would definitely recommend the tour and our tour guide if you're visiting Sarajevo.

Essential for all

I knew I needed to take this tour and a colleague, who left at the start of the Siege and husband escaped via the tunnel 2 years later, agreed. For logistics alone, if you want to see the Olympics bobsled venue, the Yellow Fortress, drive along Snipers Alley, see different places where snipers accrued, understand where the Tunnel was...this tour is a no brainer. That said, our guide (never knew his name) was a youngster when the Siege started and sort of remembers it (I wish our guide was at least 10+ at the time), his history is necessary for any human who cares to understand why WAR is beyond stupid. Yes, war is stupid. Let's remember that we are ALL humans, regardless of religion, ethnicity, and beliefs. I now better understand nationalism and the difference between the Federation and Republic. Thank you so much!

Excellent tour run by Sarajevo Funky Tours includes a full hour plus at the Tunnel of Hope near the airport including a film presentation. This is followed by a visit to the Trebevic olympic mountain and the Jewish cemetery - an important location in the recent turbulence. Also a visit to the White Fortress for nice views of the city. Highly recommended.

Excellent tour! Arne and our driver were super fantastic! Arne, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, passionate, engaging, caring, and very friendly. Her knowledge of Sarajevo's history and her experience living through the siege of Sarajevo made this tour extremely informative. I would do another tour with them in a heartbeat. Very highly recommended for those interested in getting a solid understanding of Sarajevo's participation in the 1990s war in the Balkans.

Hearing first hand tales of the siege of Sarajevo and seeing some key areas, the tunnel, the snipers nests and the abandoned olympic bobsleigh used by snipers. Can't remember the ladies name but she did a great job and I'd reccomend this tour.
