 This was such a positive experience.

I am so happy I found this tour. I travelled solo and they really made an effort to fit me into one of the tours he had scheduled. I participated in the Siege Tour and it was incredibly interesting and informative. Skender was more than happy to share his experience and answer any question we had and this created a really special opportunity to see Sarajevo from a different prespective. So great. I would highly recommend. Thanks, Skender!

 A "MUST DO" in Sarajevo

We traveled to Sarajevo in November, 2011, and based on the reviews here, contacted Sarajevo Funky Tours to set up a couple of tours. Our trip was a bit last minute, but Skender was very accommodating, and we ended up joining another small group on the Total Siege Tour on one day, and then doing the Old Town tour the second day. 

The Siege tour was amazing, with access to locations and sites that we never would have visited on our own. But more importantly, we would not have understood the significance of the sites or put them in context without Skender's remarkable narrative of the war. In general, we aren't big fans of tours, preferring to go places on our own, but in this case, it really was more like touring with someone we already knew, and who happened to be an expert in the local history. Skender is bright, personable, and very engaging, and we enjoyed the tour tremendously.

The next day, we went on a second tour - just the three of us, to see the Sarajevo Old Town (Baščaršija) by foot. We had already walked through the town on our own, but going through with Skender was a whole different experience, as he showed us many things we missed and took us to places we had walked by, but not really "seen" or understood. The library was a real highlight - I never would have thought to go inside to see the exhibits there. We also enjoyed visiting the Imperial Mosque and learning more about the Islamic faith. Sarajevo is remarkable that it has so many different religions represented in a small area, and one of the highlights of this tour was visiting the worship spaces of each of them - an Islamic mosque, a Catholic cathedral, an Orthodox church and a Jewish synagogue. Despite it's bloody history, Sarajevo has been very tolerant of religious differences, and this was one of the themes of the tour.

I know it will take me a long time to absorb all I learned and saw on this tour - it was a remarkable experience, and would not be the same without Skender's expertise. Highly recommended!

 Fabulous, funky Sarajevo! Fabulous, funky Skender!

What can I add that hasn't been said before? Our tour (Total Siege) with Skender was the highlight of our trip to Sarajevo.

We spent 4 1/2 days in Sarajevo and would loved to have stayed longer. The city and its people got under our skin, big time. So much in fact, that we're already planning a return trip. We just loved it.

Much of this was due to spending time with Skender and hearing stories about the city's siege, the people, and their history. We met him at his office, right in the heart of the old town. He whisked us away in his VW van and took us toward the airport where he gave us a condensed version (in flawless English) of the history of the war and pointed out prime locations where major conflicts or events had occurred. Our tour of the Tunnel Museum was excellent and very moving. 

After that, we headed toward the hills to the various outposts used by Serbs during the siege: The police hotel (where the Serbs hid tanks), an abandoned restaurant with a spectacular view, and, probably the most poignant place -- the former Olympic Bobsled Run, now standing derelict in the woods. We actually walked on the run itself, which is now covered in graffiti. 

Our time with Skender helped put the city into perspective. We've read books on the war and Sarajevo's history, but nothing compares to hearing stories and seeing things first-hand and up close. I'm sorry we weren't able to go on other tours, especially Srebrenica. (Well, we've got to save something for next time, I guess.) 

Skender's a fabulous fellow -- smart, savvy and kind. Listen to his restaurant recommendations. And make sure he teaches you the proper way to drink Bosnian coffee. But most of all, take one of his tours.

 The best!

If you are in Sarajevo and you really want to visit Bosnia, you should take at least one of the Funky Tour's trips. I took the Mostar day trip and it was absolutely amazing! I thought we would only visit Mostar and go back to Sarajevo, but we also visited Plocitelj and Blagaj, two amazing towns that cannot be missed. The guide, Skender, is simply the best...he knows the places to visit, he is really well informed and the best guide u can have there, because he knows all the bad and good things that happened there and he's willing to answer any questions you might have. 
I also took the Total Siege tour and I loved it even more, because we could not only visit and see the places where historical facts took place, but also because we had a guide that was a witness to it. During those two trips I've learned a lot from Skender and even if I was travelling alone, he managed to creat such a great atmosphere that all the group ended up having lunch and dinner together, just like we have been friends for a long time! I strongly recommend you to get to know real Bosnia through Sarajevo Funky Tours. One more thing: as I was travelling solo, I was afraid of not being able to take those tours, but I sent an e-mail one month before my arrival and Skender replied to it (and some other ones I had sent after that one) and because of that I was able to join the groups.

 Fantastic and essential to understanding Sarajevo

My wife and I took the Sarajevo Total Siege Tour with Skender on September 6. Making the arrangement was very easy, via e-mail. The other group schduled for that day dropped out at the last minute, but Skender did not hesitate to proceed with the tour even though there were only two of us. The tour was the high point of our three-week trip through Hungary and the Balkans. Skender is very knowledgeable and very passionate about sharing his city with others. He is very open about describing the recent events, and his English is very good. The tour includes the Tunnel Museum, of course, but then Skender took us up on the hills overlooking Sarajevo, where we could stand and see what the Serbian artillery and snipers saw looking down at the city. Chilling and absolutely memorable! 

I strongly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a better understanding of the recent war, how Sarajevo survived it, and how it changed the city and the region. Touring with Skender is like having a friend show you around his city - a friend who lived through an historic period in the life of the city, and can bring it alive to his guests!

 YOU MUST DO THIS TOUR!!

I recently spent Christmas in Sarajevo with a group of friends, and one of of these freinds is a Kiwi who lives in Sarajevo hence, has the 'inside knowledge' of the best things to do in Sarajevo while there. She recommended Skender's tour. I could not have asked for a better introduction into the history and cultures in Bosnia. I went into the tour with very little understanding and knowledge to the Bulkan Wars, and walked away feeling really well informed. Skender offers his own families personal experieinces to the tour which makes the tour even more 'real' and memorable, he drove us to various parts of Sarajevo to give us perspective on the stories we were hearing, and he was totally willing to answer any of our questions, I also found the tour really resonably priced for the amount of time and effort Skender spent with us. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

 Fantastic Immersion into Sarajevo

I took the Total Siege Tour with my wife. We travel all over the would and I would put Skender in the top 5% of any tour guide we've ever experienced - he's a fantastic tour guide, taking you places and sharing deep insights about the incredible drama of modern Sarajevo . The 4-5 hours you invest with him will be invaluable in not only touring Sarajevo, but getting a deep military, poltical, economic and social immersion in the Bosnian struggle against the Serbs. You will not only see the big sights - you will come out of it as a changed person with a much deeper understanding of the positive and negative limits of humanity. This tour is fundamental to the Sarajevo experience, and would be cheap at twice the price. Skender is fluent, prompt, adaptable and carries an infectious passion for his city and country. Days like this are why you travel. A+

 Excellent tours with small groups

Skender was an excellent guide. We first did the total siege tour, which gave us lots of information about what happened in the Sarajevo siege. We liked Skender tour so much we decided to stay in Sarajevo one more night and do the Srebrenica tour. 
Both tours are very personal and give you great insight into the conflict in Bosnia.
