Good tour! Agan was very knowledgeable, reflected and good at answering even complicated questions. It was obvious he was very experienced and sincerely interested in history. The stop at the Olympic bobsled facility was a bit out of focus and not very interesting. However, I would definitely recommend the tour.

Booked this last minute as it seemed like a good way to see some of the main sites of Sarajevo in a single day. And that's exactly what it was. It's well worth seeing the Tunnel museum and I enjoyed the bobsleigh track. The view from the Yellow Bastion is amazing. It was so convenient having the bus to get around on and the tour is probably much better value for money than trying to hop in taxis to these sites and do it independently since they are dotted around different parts of the city. The guides are very knowledgeable and have lived through the experience of the war so they can provide their own stories of this terrible time in history. Recommended!

Meet Bosnia is the best tour company you will ever find! I have traveled a lot and I have never before experienced a company that will go the extra mile to make sure that you have a pleasant time, but Meet Bosnia will do this on all tours! This tour is a must do when in Sarajevo. The tour provides you with great historic insight and gives a better understanding of the fall of Yugoslavia and the siege of Sarajevo. I went on the Fall of Yugoslavia tour and free walking tour with guide Ahmed, who is a professional and very knowledgeable guide. He speaks excellent English and explains the history in a very easy-to-follow way – I learned so much! He also explains typical Bosnian culture with great humor and is such a friendly guide. He included personal stories about growing up in the aftermath of the war, which was an interesting perspective to get on the topic. He has great knowledge of history and society and you get a good overview of the situation today. Do not miss out on this tour!
