Custom trips and personal service
If you enjoy independent style travel but like to experience a place through the eyes of local people I’d highly recommend Sarajevo Fumky Tours. We built a custom trip with Ema and did our trip with our guide and drivers Adnan and Haris who became more friends than guides within days. We packed a lot into the week visiting Sarajevo, learning about the war, Konjic, Mostar, Trebinje. Highly recommend Mostar for its beauty and history. Get up early to avoid the crowds! Lukomir day hike is spectacular and you must have lunch with the local family for a perfect experience. Tvrdos winery and monastery is great as are the cave tours on the way. Canoe River Trebizat. You will not be disappointed. Cycle the old railway trail alongside Neretva river. I came to Bosnia knowing little but the recent war and left with memories full of picturesque landscapes, amazing people passionate about their culture. Highly recommend 7 – 8 days.

Unforgettable BiH
It was a very unplanned trip and all seemed very last minute. We were able to get in touch with Skender and he was 100% helpful with everything. We managed to get the tours we wanted and it was just an excellent experience. Our guides Damri, Haris, Jasmin and Dado were all very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot and enjoyed everything too.

We would take a tour with them again if we ever get back there. I hope drinking the water from Sebilj will increase those odds.

Thank you SFT team. Breaking prejudice indeed.

Passionate and friendly team
Nothing can describe this agency, they are sooo honest, professional , passionate and friendly. We planned our trip 2 months ago all through whatsapp . They prepared a very detailed program with the links of the accommodation without asking for any down payment. When we arrived last Friday 30 June 17. And the trip started, they gave us everything they promised with even extra great surprises 🙂 and they didn’t ask us for the payment at all . When we asked them when shall we pay, they said no rush. Pay it at the end.

They made the our trip above our expectations and special in every moment.

Special thanks to Skender Hatibovic and the great team Adnan & Faris

So, again. If you are looking for an agency in Bosnia and Herzegovina. You MUST go with funky tours . They are GREAT.

Wonderful guys who give you a great travelling experience.
I have booked a whole week with this company. They have provided us with everything for a good affordable holiday. We were accommodated in 2 very good hotels, one in central Sarajevo and another in Mostar. Every day we had an excursion of our choice. Very good guides, Ado, Dado, Faruk and Skender (the owner). Young, enthusiastic and full of energy. They really love their job, they gave us some very good tips and they really went out of their way to give us more than expected. Their hospitality is amazing and we were even welcomed in their home. I can say that we were travelling with friends and not with guides. I wish we could have spent some more days in this fascinating country with such nice people.
