Thank you very much :)

Nemo has this incredible ability to take all the complicated history and make it so digestible and easy to understand. By far the best explanation out of the more than 5 tours I have done in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The amount of information you learn is jaw-dropping and even after the tour you keep thinking and reflecting about the situation. Highly recommend this tour on your first days in Sarajevo. He also keeps it entertaining and deals with tough subject matters with tact and diplomacy. His rawness is so refreshing and he is a great ambassador for not only his city but his country.

Response from Neno and Friends Sarajevo
Thank you very much for such nice words :)
