Tripadvisor Review


We took the free walking tour as we like when we arrive in country main city to know a bit better of its history and good tips. Our guide was Sabina (we hope that we are not making mistake about her name). She was an amazing guide!!! She gave us a lot of information about Sarajevo/Bosnia. She was speaking a really good English and really easygoing. We also appreciate the fact that she seemed to not stick to her speech but also gave us her opinion about the situation of the country. That makes a really personnal and perfect tour. For us, it looks like she likes her job but she also like her country and the people who leave in. We highly recommend!!
