This was the most fantastic tour with Emina Koso! Emina tailored the tour, shared her personal experiences of growing up in the siege of Sarajevo and insights into Bosnia’s current political situation, was warm and friendly and so professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to everyone! Thank you Emina, I hope to come back to Bosnia & Herzegovina again soon!

It was amazing, but ensure to check the weather, wear comfy clothes, and be ready to walk for some distance. Kamal, the advisor, was amiable and provided comprehensive details and information about each site. I highly recommend it. Even the agency's customer service was very accommodating and delivered outstanding service.
