Fantastic experience!

Quite simply - if you are planning to visit Sarajevo you must get in touch with SFT, as the experiences offered by Skender and his team are fantastic!

I took 2 tours during my stay, the total siege tour (1/2 day) and the Herzegovina tour (2 day). I found them both so interesting, the passion shown by tour guides really brings the subjects of the tours to life.

SFT were also very accommodating when it came to booking tours, a simple email exchange and I was able to use my time in Bosnia to the maximum.

I was already going to recommend Bosnia to friends and family but now - knowing the great experiences I've had with these guys I will be even more enthusiastic about them visiting!

 Great tour

We really enjoyed our transfer from Sarajevo to Mostar. On the way we visited some great locations and passed through beautiful scenery. Bosnia is unexpectedly beautiful and unique. Our guide Farouk was genuine and friendly and relayed his first hand experiences with utmost honesty. We felt very well looked after.

 Very professional!

As a planner of a themed trip with 12 people from Sweden, we chose Sarajevo Funky Tours for both airport transfer, two city tours and three-day trips to Srebrenica, Tuzla and Mostar. Skender was very helpful in planning and we were guided during the week of Arna. 
Interesting tours with a lot of history description and personal experiences and perspectives on how Balkan war could take place. 
We got the privilege to make field trips to places we've never been able to organize themselves as Skender arranged for us. 
I can really recommend hiring Sarajevo Funky Tours during visits to Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina!

 Stunning,Informative,Excellent

3 Friends and I booked the Mostar & Jalce tours with Skender from Funky Tours and I can say that the tours were truly excellent and unforgettable. I really enjoyed these tours and am sure that my friends did to; I definitely feel we got a fantastic deal.

Our guide Faruk (from who operates HelloCity & also works with Skender) took us on the Mostar Tour, and then Skender & Faruk did the Jajce tour. They are both two highly knowledgeable and personable individuals who made the tours both informative and very enjoyable at the same time. They were happy to give us their personal experiences and recommendations on food and sites to see in Bosnia and their knowledge on the sites was second to none.

I've been on tours where the group is 40 people + however the fact that we were in a small group (4 friends) gave the tour a much more friendly & relaxed atmosphere so their was a lot more time to ask questions and truly delve deeper into the history of the country.

Lastly, not only did we go to the destinations we sought to, we also stopped at important mosques and heritage sites along the way which was very insightful and i felt like we were going on more than one tour on each journey. I would definitely recommend these tours to anybody who wishes to see a glimpse of Bosnia's rich history and stunning landscapes and views in a friendly environment. Thanks Skender and Faruk!

You know you've had a great time when you've left the country yet feel like you've left a part of you behind. Very grateful to Sarajevo Funky Tours for their lovely service. Their guides were informative and passionate and knew exactly what they were doing. They take you to the random yet beautiful bits and corners of the country that you didn't even know existed and tell you all about it. Their passion for the country is clear and it adds a personal touch to every place you go. They're also very cooperative and easy to deal with financially. Would definitely recommend.

 Dream destination either - for the first visit and for coming back there again

We, Latvian and French, started our trip to Herzegovina, the southern part of BiH, with high expectations - one of us has been there already several times, and the second one has been filled up by impressions of the first one and by stories and happenings since Sarajevo'84 Olimpic games. During the nice long day of the trip Sarajevo-Konjic-Jablanica(lambs' eating road)-Mostar-Blagaj-Počitelj-Neum(BiH tiny coast line) our expectations from the trip were fulfilled completely - we were adored, impressed and educated. For those who are stupid - you can come just to see nature and places, for those who want to know something more about this country - you can talk and listen to Skender. And at the end of the day, when we were delivered in front of doors of our next hotel, we had a feeling that we spent our day with friend, smart friend.

 Seige Tour and Mostar Tour

We had a great time on these two tours. 

Seige Tour: This is a half day tour, and probably the most popular tour run by Funky Tours. You arrive at Skender’s office (a little hard to find at the end of a narrow dead end alley. Look for the graffiti of a solider saying “I defend this city”). As Skender drives you around, he shows and explains certain sites (i.e. sniper alley, the memorial for children), and shares his family’s own personal experience. The first stop is the War Tunnel Museum. A small section of the war tunnel (~30 feet) is open for you to walk through. There is a brief documentary shown, and a room with artifacts from the war. The museum does not provide anything in the way of commentary or descriptions, making it all the more important to go with a guide. Other stopping points included an abandoned hotel, and the 1984 Olympics abandoned luge track. Surprisingly, this was my favorite part of the trip because it was so beautiful and unique. We walked down the luge track and Skender picked us up at the bottom. We returned to the office right before lunch time. I would recommend Skender as he was informative and lively. Wear comfortable walking shoes with rubber soles, as the abandoned hotel has broken glass, shards, and crumbly steps.

Mostar Tour: This is a full day tour, returning you back to your hotel at about 6PM. Mostar is beautiful, but much more touristy and busy than we expected. Once you get to Mostar, I highly recommend paying the few extra marks for entrance to the Ibrahim Pasha Mosque so you can climb up the minaret for some stunning views. It is a tight and winding climb, so it may not be suitable for the claustrophobic. The drive to Mostar was broken up by several stops: another bridge, a castle, a visit to a sufi monstary. Wear comfortable walking shoes, especially if you plan to go to the top of the castle for some great views. Blagaj, with the sufi monastery is quite beautiful and serene. One minor complaint: Skender was not our guide on this tour. We did not realize he occasionally outsources to other consulting tour guides. Although the tour guide we ended up with was OK, we would have preferred to have changed our schedule to do a tour with Skender if we had known. Another minor complaint: you don’t take a lunch break until you reach your last stop, the sufi monstary, around 3PM. By that time, we were very tired and hungry and would have preferred to stop sooner. Also, although the restaurant is located by beautiful scenery, there are bees crawling over everything which is not fun to deal with when you’re that hungry and tired.

One more note: Skender will only offer a tour if he can get 4 or more people together. This may make planning a trip to Srebrenica difficult (we ended up having to book with another tour company as Skender could not find 2 more people).

 Simply the best

We have travelled all over the world and have often engaged outstanding private guides to enhance our experience, helping us to learn and to appreciate the history and culture of our destination – at our own tempo and focused on our own interests. Skender is among the best of them.

We had just four full days in Bosnia and Herzegovina and spent three of them with Skender. On our first day, we took the Old Town Tour and the Siege Tour, followed by full-day trips to Mostar and to Srebrenica. We engaged him because of the positive Trip Advisor reviews, and he met our very highest expectations.

Skender’s knowledge is considerable, but he also has a good sense of just how much history can be absorbed and how to present it in a way that is interesting and compelling. Having lived through the most difficult years of his country and city, he brings a special understanding to that history but he refrains from allowing his understanding and experience to bias the re-telling. In fact, it adds to his credibility. 

Like any good professional guide, Skender quickly “reads” the interests and preferences of his guests. Early on, we developed an easy and comfortable rapport with him and very much enjoyed his company for some very long days. At all times, he maintained his enthusiasm for his country and for what we were seeing and never “phoned it in”, although he has no doubt told the same stories innumerable times. Best of all, it was just plain fun to spend the days with him. He is a very interesting guy.

I will describe what I think is the best example of Skender’s level of engagement with – and desire to satisfy - his guests. When we travel, we like to seek out quality handcrafts that are unique or characteristic of our destination. In the case of Bosnia, UNESCO has published “Traditional Arts and Crafts of Bosnia.” It is available outside Bosnia only online as a pdf (message me if you want a copy). We told Skender of our interest and had identified several artisans mentioned in the book that we hoped to visit, although the book provided only their city/town. Skender asked that we forward him the pdf. Before our arrival, Skender had taken our list and had researched the whereabouts of the artisans we had identified, so that when we were there – in both Sarajevo and Mostar (and even en route to Mostar!) he managed to weave into his standard itinerary visits to nearly all of the studios we had identified. Although doing all that advance research took a lot of time and effort on his part, he made it seem a natural part of our days there. It was also clear that he had already possessed a very good appreciation for the best of that type of work and a prior familiarity with several of the artisans.

I observe that a few reviewers mentioned that they had someone other than Skender conduct the actual tour. Although we had reserved him personally several months in advance, from our discussions with him, I know that Skender is so engaged with the satisfaction of his guests and so serious about growing - and maintaining the reputation of - an already high-quality company that I would happily accept as a guide anyone that Skender would engage for us. So I would not be worried if he were not available for a particular tour.
