What a fun and informative way to learn about Sarajevo. Merima was brilliant at explaining the very varied history of the city but it was her funny personal insights that made this such an amazing tour. If you're ever in the area, this tour is a must!

Our favourite tour of our 2 week tour of the area. Informative, interesting and as our guide had experienced living in Sarajevo during the siege it was very personal. It was the perfect introduction to the city and its people.
