We (a group of 4 German students) took the Sarajevo Total Siege Tour at the beginning of March 2012. Even if the circumstances, due to a lot of heavy wet snow, weren`t perfect, it was an outstanding, very interesting and moving as well as funny and personal tour! Like some previous reviewers wrote before, my friends and me also normally prefer to do stuff on our own, but reading all the very good reviews about Funky Tours (which we almost couldn`t believe:)! ), we decided to book a tour. Now I have to admit, I agree 100% with the other travelers, it was great experience! We have seen places we wouldn`t have went on our own, cause we wouldn`t have known them or there`re just not reachable by public transport. But besides that, almost more important, are all the interesting information our guide Skender gave us. He has a great way of introducing you to all the important facts about the history of the war and siege. Enriched with his huge knowledge, personal background and open relaxed attitude he is a perfect guide! You can talk with him about serious things, ask him any question u want as well as have a good laugh with him! So I highly recommend doing a tour if you want to know more about the past, present and future of Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina in general from somebody young and educated, who has been and still lives there. To see the disturbing and at the same time hope raising or beautiful places won`t let your mind and heart leave cold!
