Tour overview

Just 8 years after Sarajevo Winter Olympic Games have finished up, this city in between the mountains again has been in the spotlight of the world again. In a very different tone from those in 1984, messages from Sarajevo were not having the positive background anymore.

Siege of Sarajevo lasted for 1425 day and it will become the longest siege of a city in modern history. With us, you will be listening to the whole story of how the war started and you will be visiting locations like the Eternal flame, National Theatre & Post Office, Children’s Memorial, Presidential House, Skenderija, Parliament, Suada and Olga Bridge / Romeo and Juliet Bridge and Historical Museum. 

You will not understand everything that happened here but you will be one step closer to understand through what people have passed during the period of war. But more importantly, you will listen to our stories that will bring positivity and which eventually will bring the peace that will last forever.

Let us rebuild burned bridges for the better future

Meme is the best walking tour guide I ever had! Very informative and at the same time very interesting. Would highly recommend this tour. Also, he heroically blocked the pigeons during the walking tour. (;read more

Really enjoyed the walking tour this morning. I've done quite a few in different cities but this one stands out really. Really interesting stories and facts on the city's history are being mixed with some personal stories and experiences. Also enjoyed doing this in a small group, we went and had a little coffee and lovely conversations; all felt really personal. Thank you. I'd definitely recommend! Keep up the good work more

Absolutely great tour. The tallest tourguide is not just tall but also extremely knowledgable about the history of Bosnia. When the tour ended, I felt overloaded with information in a good way, and Almedin took the time to sit and talk with me and help me digest the experience, not just of the tunnel tour - but also of being in Bosnia in general. He has my warmest recommendations!read more

Highly recommend the free Alternative Sarajevo tour if you're looking to see a different side of Sarajevo and find out about the Street Art. It's really hard to understand the street art as lots is in Bosnian or Bosnian slang or has references which aren't easy to get so it's great to have a local guide explain more
