Fantasic! Top Notch!

My friend and I used Sarajevo Funky Tours for a tour to Medjugorje, Mostar, Blagaj, Kravice waterfalls, and a few other stops. The initial tour communication was quick and professional. The actual tour itself was a fantastic all day adventure! Out guide, Arna, was extremely knowledgeable, personable, intelligent, and friendly. She is so much more than a tour guide- she has the insight, history, experience, and love of BiH to make really astute and interesting conversation. It wasn’t just superficial or rote memorization from a guidebook. She knows the places, people, and culture. Furthermore, she was flexible with what we wanted to see and spend time visiting and offered suggestions for future adventures. I would absolutely recommend this company and I look forward to booking another excursion with them.

I left my heart in SARAJEVO

Arna, our most attentive, kind and energetic guide drove us from Sarajevo to Medugorje, the spectacular Kravice Waterfalls and fascinating Mostar. I would have to rate it the best one day tour I’ve ever taken.

Adnan was a walking historical encyclopaedia of Sarajevo and great company.

Sarajevo Funky Tours are the best of the best and I’d recommend them to any visitor to Bosnia Herzegovina. There is genuine warmth in this country and it is so endearing. Restaurants are excellent and Arna booked us into Kibe. From its location over the city, the views are spectacular, as is the food.

Thanks again Arna, Adnan and all at SFT’s

VERY HAPPY WITH FUNKY TOURS

We arranged an independent tour with SFT in order to go to Medjegore. This was an all day tour for the three of us, which we know before hand. Actually, this was more of arranged transportation with car and driver, Salem, as opposed to a true tour. this was very acceptable with us as it allowed more time in Medjegore. Our dirver was great in telling us some basic history of Bosnia and answered all questions we asked. On our return trip, Salem, took us to an excellent restaurant that we never would have known about outside of Mostar. I made all arrangements via the internet. Excellent service!
