I made a last minute decision to drop by Bosnia & Herzegovina in early July. Thus I also contacted all the tour agencies very last minute - the night before down to a few hours before daybreak. Most tour agencies, while very helpful, were not able to accommodate my last minute requests especially since I was travelling alone.
At first point of contact, Skender was very friendly and helpful by answering all my questions. He was very accommodating to my last minute requests and even managed to fit in all 3 tours that I have prioritised - of course I had to pay a premium for being the only person! Skender is the perfect example of how you should manage a tour agency.
On my first full day, I went for the Mostar full day tour with Dado. We clicked well due to our close age and similar life and travel philosophies. Other than the stated towns and the "bonus" Kravice Waterfalls in the itinerary, Dado also brought me to check out places he personally hangs out. He is very engaging and I had real fun during the tour.
I went for the full siege tour with Skender's father who is an ex soldier during the Siege of Sarajevo. It was just a perfect history lesson by someone who personally experienced the horrors of war and I learnt a lot of things from him. Thereafter I also did the full city tour with Nadja. The old city is easy enough to navigate and walk around on your own, but I found it more meaningful and interesting to have Nadja walking me through the sights and linking all the stories together. She is a wonderful guide!
All in all, I don't always go through tour agencies when I'm travelling but Sarajevo Funky Tours is a worthy investment! I would definitely recommend my friends to go with them!
