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.

 Two tours

We had only three days in Sarajevo and usually prefer to do our own finding out but in this instance felt the need to have a local take us through the history and the sights.
On the first day we took the "Siege" tour; half a day in a small group with guide Skender who lived through the siege as a pre-teen. The knowledgeble and insightful discourse really brought us up to speed with the recent history of this country, this city. It was better than book-learning and left no doubts as to the impact on the lives of those inhabitants of Sarajevo the conflict caused. 
The following day we settled in for the Mostar tour. A long day, including several meals and a couple of other locations, this was more entertaining than the other option that had been suggested to us- catching the train to Mostar. Our guide got us into places that were technically closed due to the off-season. 
Although mid winter there is less of the green Mediterranean outlook, the lack of hoards of tourists more than made up for it. 
Both tours were very personal and great value and for someone who shies away from formal tours this was an invaluable part of our Bosnian experience.

 Full package! Great experience! Amazing Funky Tours!

 We are studnet group from Utrecth, Netherlands, which decided to go to Balkans on a studnet trip with main focus on Bosnia, but did not had much experience with this regio/countryn except knowing it from medias and bit around..then we contacted Sarajevo Funky Tours, and thak God we did so :) we were picked up in Dubrovnik, brought to Sarajevo where we stayed in great hostel (owned by the agency owners) in the pure center of Old town of Sarajevo, and ideal for groups like ours (17).. we booked a whole building and it was just as perfect.

We did few tours including Sarajevo Siege tour, where we learned amazing stories from our GREAT guide of how Sarajevo made it through these unfortunate days. Then old town tour, Srebrenica tour and amazing Mostar tour. We think we have seen almost whole country in 5 days as we stayed in Sarajevo which none of us will ever forget.
In the end we left Sarajevo by train to Budapest (amazing place as well).
We must say only that our hosts were amazing in every possible situation (visa problems, some students were bit sick but luckly all fine tahnks to Sabina tea, etc.), and they treated us like we were their own. Bosnia was surely our favorite place and we would not experience it any beter than we did with funky tours.
Thank you Sarajevo Funky Tours (many of us will be bask soon).

 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.

 Experience the true GEM of touring in Bosnia & Herzegovina

We are a newly wed bosnian-norwegian couple visiting Sarajevo in July 2010. I was born in Sarajevo, but due to the war atrocities the family moved to Scandinavia when I was a teenager. Sadly enough, as adult I am visiting the country on sporadical occasions. 

This summer I took my norwegian husband for his first longer trip to Bosnia. As I do not longer consider myself to be local (given the fact that I have left the country as youngster), I still had a desire to show him the true beauty and spirit of Bosnia, the way I remember it from my early years. What a better way than to do it with Skender and his Sarajevo Funky Tours! 

Due to personal preferences, we decided not to take the War-themed tours. Instead we opted for something more cheerful and recreative. FIRST TOUR: a full day of hiking at Bjelasnica mountain - the site of the Olympic downhill in 1984. After a hearty breakfast in a local guesthouse, we started the steep 4 hour climb from Umoljani village leading us through the emerald green valleys and rocky canyons to the heights of southern slopes of Bjelasnica and the traditional village Lukomir. Lukomir is Bosnia's highest and most isolated mountain village at 1469 meters above the sea level. After enjoying some food and strong bosnian coffee in Lukomir, we set back hiking to Umoljani arriving late in the afternoon to be met by a freshly baked potato-pie and a tasty tomato salad. What a fantastic day!

SECOND TOUR was scheduled for experiencing the beauty of the hot and rocky southern province of Hercegovina. We drove from Sarajevo early in the morning setting it off toward the picturesque towns of Pocitelj and Blagaj, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We spent the afternoon visiting Mostar and it´s world-famous Old Bridge and ending the tour in the evening by visiting Jablanica - a small town on the way to Sarajevo known for its 
"jagnjetinja" which is a whole lamb slowly roasted over the open fire. Yummy!!!

Skender is everything and more the other reviewers have described him as. We felt that we were not on a guided tour, but enjoying a day with a old friend why was happy to be there and share the experience with us! All in all, we LOVED every minute spent on both tours and were highly impressed by the engagement and wholeheartedness Skender puts in his work. As I mentioned, we felt like we spent those days with a good friend and not with a stranger who had to be paid for the service. I will definitely do more tours with Sarajevo Funky Tours when we return to Bosnia next time. What can we say more than: Skender, just keep doing what you do best - bringing the best possible tours and sightseeing experience in and around Sarajevo and rest of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
