My husband and I didn't have much time in Sarajevo, so decided to book SFT's city tour for the morning, and the total seige tour in the afternoon. I am so glad we did, as we both agree it was one of the best days we have ever spent travelling! Our guide, Skender, took us out for the day privately, and I have to say, he is definitely the best guide I have ever had. Perfect English, very knowledgeable but balanced, clearly very passionate about the region and ALL of it's people, Skender gave us an insight into the city as only a true local can. We visited all the main city sights (including mosques, churches and synagogues) as well as all the major sights from the war, including the tunnel museum. He drove us up the mountains with beautiful views to show how the seige happened. While visiting bombed out buildings sounds depressing, it was absolutely fascinating, and Skender was kind enough to tell his personal story. He was incredibly open, and we were able to ask personal questions, which he always answered with great thought and humour. I came away from the tour with a far better comprehension of the conflict than I would have done otherwise, and it has sparked inside me a passion for Bosnia and its people. As such, we were very happy when Skender gave us a dvd full of documentaries about the country as a parting gift!
Overall, we left the tour feeling like we had just spent the day with a good (and very knowledgeable!) friend who just happened to know the city. We couldn't have asked for more and have since recommended Sarajevo Funky Tours to family and friends. If you are heading to Bosnia, check them out!
