Tour overview

Complete 4 hours War tour is created in order to educate people about the war and conflicts of 90’s in the West Balkans. The purpose of this tour will be to evaluate all of the major things that took place, to understand them as much as possible and to create a summary that will lead to a positive outcome. 

Fall of Yugoslavia will be explained using the maps and stories provided by our tour guide.This will be one of the first stories that will follow. War in Bosnia, the creation of 3 different armies, Siege of Sarajevo, Srebrenica genocide and war outcome will be amongst the topics that the tour guide will be explaining during the 4 hours of the tour.

You will be visiting all of the important locations for this tour such as: Tunnel of Hope, Bobsleigh Track, Hotel ‘’Osmice’’, Jewish Cemetery, etc. All of the locations mentioned are essential for this topic and they will be explained in a comfortable AC car or van (depending on number of people).

Listen to the story told by the locals, a generation that believes the war was an ultimate mistake and that this kind of suffering should never happen to anyone ever again. We promise to deliver facts and unbiased opinions (as much as it is possible) in order for you to understand the conflict without having to choose sides.

During the ride towards the tunnel museum, which will be our first stop, the guide will start the tour by explaining the fall of Yugoslavia. The tour guide will then explain the sites and buildings, which you’ll be able to see through your window, all of which were important during the siege of Sarajevo.

After we arrive to the tunnel museum tour guide will buy the tickets and you will enter an area where we have maps, video and other tools that will help us explain the conflict to you. Find out how the war started, why the National Library of BH was destroyed, how many people were involved in the conflict and which events were the most important for this war. You will then  watch a movie and also get an explanation about the movie itself. 

You’ll have the opportunity to hear the stories about the life during the darkest times in Sarajevo, and yet the stories will be full of life and full of hope.

While passing through 25 meters of the original tunnel, the guide will explain its importance and role during the siege.

After the visit to the Tunnel museum, you will be going to Trebevic mountain to see the first line of defense. You will also be able to see Sarajevo from a greater distance and the positions from which Sarajevo was bombarded.

Our trip back to the starting location will be interrupted with two stops. First one will be hotel ‘’Osmice’’ and second- the Jewish Cemetery. Hotel ‘’Osmice’’ was the headquarter of Serbian Forces and Jewish Cemetery was a frontline as well. 

We will finish with good examples and positive stories. We will speak about the future and fight against fascism with an overall positive attitude.

During the tour, transport will be organised and you will be transported to the Tunnel Museum with the tour guide who will be explaining everything on the way, inside of the tunnel museum and on the way back. Locations that we will see and visit are:

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 guys.read 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 things.read more
