Coppersmith experience

This was a very fun activity. We began the experience by a short walk from the Funky Tour office to the copper workshop/business. The shop owner was very friendly and immediately made us feel comfortable over a cup of coffee and tea.

We decided to make decorative souvenir type magnets. All the tools and instruction were provided and we enjoyed several hours of laughing and enjoying our time. We really enjoyed the experience, perfect if the weather outside is not so good.

It gave us a new appreciation of how skilled the local coppersmiths really are in their craft.

funtastic customised holiday with Funky Tour, every experience is so magical…..

my friends and i (eight of us) just wrapped up our funtastic holiday with Funky Tours. In Apr this year, i found Funky tours website and i email Funky Tours to make enquiry after reading positive review from Trip Adviser.

Ema was quick to response to my queries and thru several emails, she managed to come out with a detailed itinerary, to include both hiking and cultural activities .

Ema has also offered lots of suggestions, which was really helpful.

We had such a great and memorable time in Zagreb, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The hotels selection by Funky Tours was great too. The hotel is of great standard, good comfortable beds, great breakfast selection, and great location .

Our guides were awesome and professional too

Everyone in Funky Tours are just awesome.

This was such a lovely tour and I was so touched to learn so much about the history of Sarajevo and this craft. I will forever keep and use the coffee pot with the designs I created that have a special meaning to me. This tour is not to be missed!
