This tour was everything we could have possibly wanted and the highlight of our two week Balkan trip. Safet is an amazing person and I am so thankful to have had the pleasure of meeting him and learning about Sarajevo/Bosnia through his eyes. He truly cares about people and making the tour a special experience. I recommend this tour and Safet 100%. Throughout the entire day, Safet made sure we were comfortable and getting the experience that we wanted. We learned so much about Sarajevo/Bosnia and will always cherish this special day.

A great tour! I really enjoyed every minute. Since nobody but me seemed to have the courage to face the seven-hour tour in midsummer, I had a private tour. Elvis, the tour guide, was great: competent, friendly and attentive. I can really recommend him unreservedly. And the tour itself is awesome if you want to see more than just Bascarsija. Culture meets nature meets sport meets the city's recent history. For those who don't have much time but want to see more!

We have travelled to many places over the world and this "Best of Sarajevo" tour is one the best tours we have ever experienced. We got an excellent information on this exceptional history and we recommend this tour for everyone visiting Sarajevo. What a day :-)

A very nice outing led by a particularly competent and professional guide to discover Sarajevo's historical past and discover the various sites of the 1984 Olympic Games. An outing that I particularly recommend.

Did the tour earlier today and it was brilliant. Guide really informative and a really nice chap. Well worth doing
