My wife and I chose to spend part of our honeymoon in Bosnia and we hired Sarajevo Funky Tours to guide us from Dubrovnik to Sarajevo over a two-day tour with an overnight in Mostar. The heartbreaking history of Bosnia/Herzegovina is well known, but the people we met in our travels were warm, open, and doggedly hopeful. Our guides, Faruk and Armina, as well as the other people they introduced us to, were excellent emissaries of their country.
The entire experience of working with this company was efficient and enjoyable. The scheduling of the tour was easy and payment was secure. Skender, the owner of the company, checked in on us numerous times before and during our trip. The company arranged for a private transfer that picked us up in Dubrovnik and took us across the border into Herzegovina. Our guide, Faruk, picked us up there and took us on a wonderful tour that included a visit to a home for tea, a private guided tour of a cave system, and a in depth description of the geography and history of the territory that we drove through on the way to Mostar. The tour also included time in Ottoman ruins in Pocitelj and a wonderful dinner along a beautiful river next to a Islamic holy site. The hotel in Mostar, arranged for by the company, was a 5-star, new facility with anything one could wish for. There was also a lot of flexibility available on the tour based on the weather and how we were feeling.
The following day we went on a 3 hour walking tour of the old city of Sarajevo, including an in-depth discussion of the Ottoman, Austo-Hungarian, Communist, and modern history of the town. Armina, our guide, grew up in the city and survived the siege. She was proud of her town while remaining honest about its challenges.
If you are going to Bosnia/Herzegovina and are looking for a guide look no further. These are the folks to trust for the best possible experience.
