I'm a Genetics and Bioengineering student with great knowledge about my hometown and country. I'm very communicative and I love talking to tourists in order to teach them the things I know but also to learn about their culture. I worked as an intern at a local tourist agency in Sarajevo and learned a lot about my home but I often do my own research to find out new things. My English is fluent so language isn't an obstacle for me. I'm also learning some German and Italian in order to provide a better experience for non-English speakers. I decided to start touring by myself with the acquired knowledge hoping to bring Sarajevo and all of Bosnia and Herzegovina closer to our foreign guests so they'd have the best memories of it

Tour description

Come with me to explore the wonders of Sarajevo and its 500+ years of history.
The Jerusalem of Europe is much more than the capital of an unknown Balkanic country. It is the place where East meets West, where Christianity meets Islam, and where capitalism meets socialism.
Our tour starts in the bustling streets of the Old town with the beautiful Sebilj fountain, from where we walk through the main street on which the stunning places of worship reside. We visit the spot of the infamous 1914 assassination that sparked I World War and walk alongside the old bridges over Miljacka to the breathtaking City Hall and House of Spite. The last stop is the Yellow Fortress, the most beautiful viewpoint of Sarajevo where you see an astonishing panorama of the whole city.

Timam is an excellent tour guide who knows his city very well. His ability to deliver the historical facts of the city in a vivid manner makes the tour very enjoyable. Timam is also willing to adapt the tour to personal needs. Thanks a lot.

Timam was a great guide! We were a small group so he could personalise the tour to us and answer all our questions. The layout of the tour was thought through and ended with a spectacular view of the city.
