My girlfriend and I recently took a trip to Bosnia-Herzogovina and Croatia, and we opted for the Sarajevo Funky Tours 3 day tour going from Sarajevo to Dubrovnik. We had an amazing time with our guide, Farouk.
From the planning stages, Skender was very helpful, and responsive with planning some options for us. We mentioned that we are vegetarian, so he took that into account. He was also helpful with coming up with some ideas to better suit our interests, such as a stop at the Hutovo Blato National Park to look for birds.
Our tour began in Sarajevo, and Farouk wasted no time in getting us acquainted with him, his country, and his experiences. In Sarajevo, he shared some very personal stories from his experiences during the siege, and it was quite an experience to hear about the war from him.
The tour continued into the Herzegovina region, to Mostar, and finally to Dubrovnik. The entire time, Farouk was great with keeping things organized (despite some weather issues), answering our many questions, and sharing his wide knowledge of his country.
Farouk is the kind of guide that you hope to get for every tour. He has a way of making you feel relaxed, while simultaneously injecting his energetic personality into the tour. He clearly is happy to go out of his way to make his guests comfortable. For example, when I told him that forgot to pack a bathing suit, he had no problem with stopping off at a shopping center, and waiting for us, so I could pick one up. It may not sound like much on paper, but this was at the end of a very long day, and if it didn't happen, I would have missed out on swimming at Kravice Falls. He didn't want me to miss out on that, and I really appreciated it. It's the seemingly little things like this that really make a good tour guide great.
Overall, we both agreed that our experience in Bosnia-Herzegovina was a highlight of our trip, and actually one of our favorite travel destinations overall. Much of this was due to the wonderful treatment we received at the hands of Sarajevo Funky Tours, and Farouk.
I would highly recommend this company, and will most likely contact them again, should we have the chance to get back to Bosnia.
