Absolutely amazing from start to finish. Arna was a very kind and interesting guide and made sure everyone was comfortable and happy. We stopped in many different places where she shared her knowledge and experiences with us which really added to the experience. The tour was organised in a fantastic way to avoid peak tourist times and we were able to see everything while it was quiet. Highly recommend this tour and thanks to Arna and the team.

We had a good experience on this trip. Ken showed alot of sensitivity during and after the trip, which is a very difficult and emotional one, and made us feel comfortable throughout. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about it. One piece of advice to people on the tour is to bring lunch because by the time it got to 3pm we were very hungry.

This trip was really great if you have the right people guide with you such as Emina Koso. You are about to explore everything without missing the viewing of nature the history behind the place from its original people . This is a must tourist point to visit in Bosnia. I highly recommend it.

It was a very pleasant experience. I traveled with a client who has a physical disability and we were literally helped with everything and everything and everyone was taken into account. A really great experience and a perfectly good-hearted helpful guide.

It was a long day, nearly 13 hours in all but our guide wanted all of us to see the beauty of her country. It is beautiful!
