    Booking is very easy. A confirmation email is sent directly with the very precise meeting point. The departure was made on time, by mini-bus with our guide. Explanatory, sympathetic, enthusiastic and communicative, Haris speaks TB French. He brought documentation and photos to prepare us for the visit during the trip. We recommend the visit to the Tunnel of Hope with all the explanations necessary to fully understand this period in the history of Sarajevo. Thank you Haris for this visit that we will not forget... Annie and Marie

    My guide was a man that actually lived thru the war. He spoke English fluently and was a wealth of knowledge. I enjoyed his presentation and his openness. He was an ex police officer and knew the city well. His van was clean and comfortable and he doesn’t smoke! If I’d had more time I’d of hired him for the Tito bunker tour. You can’t go wrong with this man. He loves Sarajevo and it shows!

    The tour to the Tunnel of Hope / Tunek spasa is very worthwhile and Adi is a great guide. Adi is very nice and helpful, open minded, has incredible knowledge and is open to many different questions. You can tell that he is personally very interested. He always brings in personal information, which makes the whole thing very authentic and helps to understand many things better. Big thanks also for the tour taking place even though I was the only person. By the way, Adi also speaks perfect German. Hvala puno and vidimo se uskoro
