What Do I Need to Bring?
My small group of 3 used Funky Tours for ~10-12 days for a trip through the Balkans. We did a combination of 1/2 day tours and connecting tours that included Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania, Serbia and Kosovo.
Our group was myself and 2 18y/o’s celebrating their high school graduation. We had an amazing time thanks to Funky Tours. We interacted with many of Funky Tours staff, Skender (even his parents), Ema (who did such a great job at answering all my emails and helping to arrange the perfect tour for us), multiple different guides (who were all very professional and knowledgeable.) We spent the most time with Jasmin and Enis.
The girls were suitably impressed by Jasmin’s excellent driving skills and ability to parallel park a van in a small space. Enis was always up to answering our questions, occasionally using his excellent photography skills to help me take pictures of the girls (we took graduation photos at most of our stops) and a pleasure to have as a guide.
I highly recommend Funky Tours and will use them again if
I am in the Balkan region again.
Holiday of a lifetime – can’t recommend funky tours enough!
I can’t put into words how much I enjoyed our trip with Funky Tours and I can’t recommend them enough!
My husband and I did a two-week four country trip through Croatia/Bosnia and Hercegovina/Montenegro and Albania and had a ball.
Anand and Senad were THE best guide and driver and it felt like taking a trip with friends. They couldn’t do enough for us and were knowledgable and engaging giving a personal perspective about a multi-layered part of the world. Ema, Edna and Nadirah in the office couldn’t be more helpful, checking in to see if we were OK or wanted anything changing.
Where necessary local guides were used who were all engaging, informative and critically had lived through history and events they were speaking about.
We tweaked the itinerary as we went along to make sure it suited us perfectly and the flexibility and amount of things to see and do meant we felt Funky Tours gave us a holiday of a lifetime!
Fantastic Balkan 10 days with Sarajevo Funky Tour
Ema organized my trip B&H, Montenegro, Albania in November 2020. Her communication was timely. What I like most about Ema and her team is they addressed my concerns about traveling during the pandemic. They took care all the PCR test to ensure smooth border crossing. We all wore masks and tested negative before starting our car journey together. I want to thank to Taib (guide) for making my trip magical and memorable. Taib is knowledgeable, good communication skills, detail oriented.
I am glad I made the choice to go with Sarajevo Funky Tour.
Best Agency to Experience the Balkan Region!
Sarajevo Funky Tours is hands down the best travel agency I have ever had the pleasure of working with. From the initial booking inquiry months in advance to the ride to the airport on my last day, everyone that I met with the Sarajevo Funky Tours team was delightful to be around. What sets this agency apart from the others is that their guides and staff know what it means to balance professionalism and building friendships with their guests. For the 8 days I spent touring with Funky Tours, all of the guides, drivers, and staff went above and beyond to check in with how I was doing throughout my stay — and as a solo female traveler in a brand new county, that meant the world to me. I will always recommend this agency because of the time, effort, and care they put into breaking down prejudice — and cannot wait to explore more of the Balkan Region with their team the next time I visit! Puno Ljubavi!
As someone who has roots from Balkans, I planned trip for my group of friends from Australia to Balkans. We decided to go with Funky Tours.
All I can say they are the most amazing company in whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Balkans too!!! We did a 12 day Balkan package covering Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia. It was planned with the real perfection and with really affordable price.
Our guides and driver were really amazing. The vehicle was brand new and the organisation was flawless. We especially loved our accommodation in Sarajevo, Belgrade, Zagreb, Mostar and Dubrovnik.
We started off in Zagreb, and then visited Jasenovac concentration camp with Novi Sad and Belgrade. Belgrade was full of amazing surprises. Afterwards we went via Srebrenica and East Bosnia to Sarajevo, where we spend 3 days. Sarajevo is really amazing. Then we visited Mostar and Herzegovina. Dubrovnik and Split were amazing too. Lastly we visited beautiful Croatian coastline with stunning Plitvice Lakes and departed from Zagreb again.
We strongly recommend Funky Tours from Sarajevo.
