Tour overview

In a city multicultural and multi religious as Sarajevo, you would be interested in exploring all of its
small corners and holly places, wouldn’t you?

Because of that, we are offering the most detailed tour in our agency. Tour in which you will taste
and feel Sarajevo during those 4 hours of walking and listening about it’s history.

From the story about the Franz Ferdinand assassination and start of the First World War you will go
and learn about the similarities and differences between the religions. Listen about the harmony of
coexistence and taste the food that blends East and West.

You will visit the house of Despić to understand the culture and Holy Houses of Sarajevo to
understand the religion. You will also find out why We find our eateries the best and you will
probably be asked to eat your Ćevapi with your fingers.

Nothing in Sarajevo is done without a cup of coffee therefore after the 4 hour talk about history,
culture and religion you will agree that coffee break is necessary- certainly it is for the tour guide
who’s done all the talking.

Walk through the streets of European Jerusalem with us and discover the hidden gems and corners of Sarajevo
Eat as a local and drink coffee as a local with our help 
Learn more about the symbiosis between the different religions in Sarajevo

Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and a Brewery on one side of river Miljacka. WHAT!?

We will cross on the right side of river Miljacka to enter Baščaršija and taste Bosnian Coffee. There,
the smell of food will be the one we will follow to the best eateries. And if you forget our tourguide
because of the smell of our delicious traditional cuisine, we won’t blame you.

Frequently asked questions

We will be entering the holy temples such as a mosque. Men cannot wear shorts above the knee and t-shirts above elbows. Women cannot wear shorts or skirts above the ankle and t-shirts above the wrists. Usually the veil for the women is given at the entrance of the mosque and kippah for the man in the synagogue but if don’t want to wear those ones you can bring your own one.

The mosque would be the most strict temple in which we will go regarding the dress code, but be aware that in other temples as well you would need to have clothes which is not revealing too much. 

We are able to do that. However, that change would would be seen as a customization of the tour making the tour private. If you are the only people on the tour we would be doing that without offering you the private tour option. 

If you wish to have customized experience in Sarajevo the best way is to contact our team on info@tt-tours.com. We will create tailored tour for you. 

We will be able to find vegan and vegetarian option for you on this tour. You just need to give us that kind of information at least couple of hours before the tour start so we can check out everything prior the tour start.
