We (couple late twenties) went for this after reading all the reviews.
We did 9am till noonish (maybe longer), covering the Tunnel Museum and the siege tour. We went with just another couple. Skender, the guide, drove us out to the Tunnel museum, the whole way detailing the start of the war - giving the political and economic background (he has a Masters in Economics).
The Tunnel Museum was fantastic, and Skender was able to give us a real insight into the lives of Sarajevans who lived through the siege - made all the more relevant to me hearing it from someone two years my junior. He was able to recant both witty and interesting anecdotes, as well as pouring mountains of fascinating facts, figures and other details onto us, giving the full history of the tunnel (which itself is really cool to walk through).
We were then taken to a nearby mountain-top overlooking Sarajevo, and walk around a semi-destroyed building used by the Serbs to house tanks and soldiers. Really good place for photos.
On our way back Skender dropped us off on the 1984 Olympics Toboggan run - we spent 10 minutes walking down to the bottom where Skender was waiting to pick us up.
We were charged 20 Euros each, but gave a ten Euro tip because it was so brilliant.
It's a truly worthwhile way to spend some time in Sarajevo, and to learn about pre-siege, siege, and post-siege life, politics and society. I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone who goes.

My husband and I were in Sarajevo on our honeymoon and we took the Total Siege Tour. It was a fascinating afternoon, incredibly eye opening and powerful. Our guide Skender was a wealth of knowledge and we eager to answer all our questions. Skender is energetic and takes you to some 'sights' that you would never get to see as a tourist. Also, he takes you to all the sights in his car so the tour is small and intimate. I highly recommend contacting Sarajevo Funky Tours while visiting the city. Skender also gives great restaurant recommendations.

As a 20th Century history teacher, I have always been interested in visiting Sarajevo. As a part of a visit I wanted to go on a tour that would allow me to be the student and learn about Sarajevo's recent past.
The Total Siege Tour with Skender was a fantastic learning experience. Throughout the whole tour, Skender was extremely informative and professional. We were able to visit sites that were a little off the beaten track, but allowed us to gain a more realistic insight to the siege of Sarajevo.
I'm soooo glad I went on the tour. Don't miss it! FANTASTIC!

My wife and I did the Total Siege Tour with Skender and spent a really informative and interesting afternoon with him. He has a great knowledge of the war and the experiences of the people of Sarajevo. He had lots of great anecdotes, too, and took us to out of the way places such as the bobsled track from the 1984 Olympics. Highly recommended!

My family and I went on the war tunnel/siege tour with Skender in August 2011. It was fascinating - and great to hear the views and opinions of a young man who lived through the war and has so much knowledge about that time and the political situation since. We visited the war tunnel, drove along Sniper Alley and visited the Serb gun posts up in the hills surrounding Sarajevo. Also visited the Bob Sleigh run and got the chance to walk down it. I learned more from this tour than from reading numerous books and enjoyed every single minute. You really shouldn't visit Sarajevo without doing some of Skender's tours and he is a real asset to Sarajevo's tourist industry. Brilliant value too and you don't even have to pay up front!

This tour is an absolute must when in Sarajevo. The tour is intimate and fascinating. Skender is amazing and a wealth of knowledge. You'll get to see some sights that are very much off the beaten path.

Skender took our group of 40 history students on a unforgettable tour through the recent history of Sarajevo. Starting from the tunnel we entred the hills around Sarajevo and visited several sites which bear the painfull memories of four years of siege. Skender's open and enthousiastic way of explaining this complicated episode in Bosnian history grabbed us immediatly. By sharing his thoughts, emotions and memories on the siege of Sarajevo Skender brought the impact of an ugly war on a beautifull city closer than any lecture on faculty could have done. This tour is an absolute must for everyone who truly want's to understand and feel the face of Sarajevo.
