Tour Overview

If you are planning to travel or are arranging transfer between Sarajevo and Zagreb, then surely the best available option is our “Total Bosnia Tour”, which will connect these two amazing cities in a day tour and in between we will visit some of the most amazing regions of Central Bosnia.

Travel from Sarajevo to Zagreb (Ljubljana / Split or vice versa) in a day tour and explore Jajce – the birthplace of Yugoslavia and world’s only city with natural waterfall in the city centre. Dive into mix of history and amazing nature of viziers’ town Travnik and admire the perfectly transparent Pliva Lakes. Enjoy the cocky Banja Luka and prepare to be shocked by WWII extermination camp – Jasenovac. Discover the essence of coexistence of three “different” nations under the same roof of Bosnian land.

Trip is designed as extremely flexible, so we can start from Sarajevo, Zagreb, Ljubljana or basically any place of your choice in the regions close to these cities. In the end trip can end in any area of your interest.

Normally, this trip we plan to start from Sarajevo and end in Zagreb or Split, but going the other way around from Zagreb / Split / Ljubljana to Sarajevo would be no problem at all.

The most amazing benefit of this day tour is the complete understanding the tripartite nature of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and we’ll discover how relations here, have been shaped in past centuries.

This is a connecting door to door day tour which covers most amazing destinations in Central Bosnia including Travnik, Jajce, Banjaluka and Jasenovac Memorial Centre. You can start either in Sarajevo and end in Zagreb (or even Ljubljana) or the other way around. Regardless of your start/end destination, we always do the full itinerary.

What to Expect

We will pick you up at your hotel right after breakfast and start with an interesting ride through Sarajevo suburbia and region of Central Bosnia. 

STOP 1: Travnik (1.15h)
Drive will take us along the flows of clear rivers Bosna and Lašva that will navigate us all the way to Travnik, Ottoman viziers’ town and birthplace of BiH Nobel winning author Ivo Andric. We will visit the beautiful Travnik fortress, one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval fortified buildings in our country and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
Travnik Ottoman Fort

STOP 2: Jajce (1.30min)

Once we visit the famous fortress in Travnik and check out the city centre, we will head towards Jajce via Vrbas river canyon.

An absolute must, when in Jajce, is checking out World’s most beautiful waterfalls, and the only one in the World placed in the city centre, famous Pliva Waterfalls – spot where Pliva river ends its flow and meets river Vrbas is simply breathtaking.

After we bless our eyes and soul we will take you on the walking tour followed by some interesting stories which will be just a perfect introduction to this old capital of independent Bosnian Kingdom and everything it symbolises from past till present time. We will visit the Museum of the Second Session of the National Liberation Army of Yugoslavia (AVNOJ), Medvjed Kula, the Tower of St. Luke, famous Catacombs – underground church.
Jajce Citadel is amazingly interesting place giving us great opportunity to see whole area around us and Jajce itself.

After we have “tasted” Jajce we will continue the trip to Lakes. In the vicinity of Jajce on Pliva river there are two lakes.

Only five kilometre away we’ll check up out Large and Small Pliva lakes where we will do some nice and easy walks, take some beautiful photos and simply enjoy the silence of fascinating untouched scenery which will give just a perfect contrast to human nature we learned about so far.

Very interesting part of the Pliva lakes story are Mills at small Pliva lake.
Amongst people famously called “Mlinčići”, which once have been main promotional material for postcards and tourist potential of Great Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy. We check them up as well.
At Great Pliva Lake we usually make a break for lunch, sharing the impressions, relaxing and admiring the stunningly beautiful nature.

STOP 5: Banja Luka (1.30h)

After Jajce and surroundings it is time to head towards Zagreb or Ljubljana, but we are not saying goodbye to Bosnia without visiting second largest city in the country – Banja Luka.

Until we reach Banjaluka we will admire the amazing beauty of Vrbas river canyon and once in Banjaluka we will do city walking tour. We will visit glorious Ferhadija Mosque and Kastel among other interesting spots in Banjaluka.

Banja Luka Orthodox Church

Structure of the city that is split in two by mighty river Vrbas is just a perfect reflection of fascinating BiH diversity, complex history and unbelievably beautiful nature that, together, make an essence of a truly unique country.

As a last shortstop which could possibly be a highlight of today’s quite emotional trip we are taking you to notorious WWII extermination camp Jasenovac.

Often referred as The Auschwitz of Balkans, Jasenovac extermination camp was one of the largest concentration camps in Europe which continued to operate even later in the SFR Yugoslavia.

It was place of detention, forced labor and murder of enormous number of Serbs, Jews and Croats who rebelled over Ustaše regime. We will check out camp from the outside (visits to the camp possible on request and with customised itinerary) and remind ourselves how racial and national exclusivity policies can be devastating.

Please Note:

  • Jasenovac Memorial Centre Museum working hours are from 9 AM to 5 PM (March to November) and 10 AM to 4 PM (December to March), meaning that visit to Museum alone is not possible on the direction of the tour from Sarajevo to Zagreb, as arrival to Jasenovac Memorial Centre would be after 5 PM. Still, publicly open part of the centre is available for visit.

I contacted Sarajevo Funky Tours when I had guests visiting from the US, and it was the best possible decision. They were extremely professional from that first call throughout the multiple tours we had the privilege to take with them.

The guides are not only very educated and well spoken, but also exceptionally pleasant, which made our whole experience absolutely fantastic! I would very much recommend this company to anyone and hope to use them in the future myself.

6 stars. A+. Love love. Tinder swipe right.

Never written a review, but it’s like I fell in love with Bosnia and SFT after the first date, and now I have to tell the world. Not sure if this is a review or a love letter or a plea for SFT to let me live in their office so I can drink their coffee and go on tours all day.

The five tours we went on were incredible, but what astonishes me most is how perfectly suited each (super awesome, amazing, and lovable) crew member was for his/her role. First, there’s professional road warrior Hadzi who will safely zip you across three countries and somehow still arrive on time despite your 500 food and toilet breaks. Then, there’s mental and vertical giant Taib who will awe you with the history of all the beauty that you’re seeing, and then patiently repeat it all when you forget five minutes later. (Sorry, Taib.. We can’t all be as smart as you. 😉 Real-life-Pocahontas-who-probably-has-a-name-for-every-rock-on-the-mountain Saud is the ideal person to inspire you and take you on an epic hike in Lukomir, or just supervise if you’re insanely lazy non-hikers who prefer to roll around in the grass, watch village grandma and grandpa spin wool and carve spoons, and plot your marriage to a local so you can stay in Bosnia forever. And then there’s Amela who has this impossibly great combination of city and foodie knowledge. You’ll scratch your head and wish you were as wise and cool as her when you were 20. Same for Nadina, who always has a smile for you, even if it’s 8 in the morning. Finally, we can’t forget soulful war vet Almir who will make you cry inside (and out) as you tour the war tunnel. You feel like you were there with him eating rotten green soldiers’ cookies, and that you’re a jerk for any day of your life that you were ungrateful.

After visiting 25 countries, Bosnia is at the top. It has this magical way of surprising, fascinating, and changing you. Endless love and thanks to everyone at SFT for opening our eyes, minds, and hearts.

Wonderful experience with Funky Tours for all 3 tours… and more!

Special thanks for Ema who is super friendly, responsive and helpful from our first email communication to even after our last tour! We are grateful for her help with our last-minute accommodation booking in Mostar and a car transfer. I left my sunglasses in the car after our last tour with drop off at Mostar, and Ema went the extra mile to coordinate with 2 guides to drop off the sunglasses at where I stayed in Mostar for me at 4am!!!

We joined three tours – Totally Bosnia tour (from Zagreb to Sarajevo), free walking tour and local food tasting in Sarajevo, and Mostar and Herzegovina 4 Cities tour (with drop-off at Mostar). All three tours went well and we enjoyed them all, especially the Herzegovina tour with the stunning scenery and ample time we had at every place we visited. We had a pleasant day with Saudin and Verna (I probably misspell it).

Thank you again to Sarajevo Funky Tours for making our trip a memorable one!

We did the Siege tour, Bosnia city tour, tour of Srebinica, and a trip to Zagreb which included several lovely stops along the way. I had 20 students in the Balkans, and Sarajevo Funky Tours and Skender specifically made the trip unforgettable for all of them and myself. Firsthand experience and true passion for his country made Skender one of the best tour guides I’ve ever had. His discussions were captivating, and he handles the details with a fine toothed comb. If you’re in Sarajevo, his tours are an absolute must. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime!
