Trip Advisor Reviews

  • Sarajevo Funky Tours is an excellent company to go to when planning to see the Balkans. Our group was just initially planning to see Croatia as we never thought of Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina as a tourist destination.

    We found them online and got interested with their Balkans tour.

    Ema who coordinated our trip is amazing. She planned out a 12 day tour for us starting at Sarajevo, then to Croatia, Montenegro, and then back to Sarajevo visiting many major beautiful sights, towns and cities along the way. The hotel selections were very good.

    Highly recommend Sarajevo Funky Tours.

    Amazing 12 days tour of the Balkans
  • Ema from Funky Tours helped put together a special 8-day itinerary for my friends and I. She and other Funky ladies welcomed us with an deliciously amazing dinner on the first night in Sarajevo!

    We had tours of countless memorable places in Bosnia, Croatia and Montenegro and through it all. Meals were always delicious in the tour, we were learning lots on local cuisine! The hotels picked were often charming and comfy, and well located.

    I would heartily recommend this tour, company and our guide/driver to everyone! The Balkans’ history and culture should be much better appreciated and understood by all. #IloveBosnia

    Most memorable Balkans tour!
  • Great tour company and guides highly professional. We had 3 days in Sarajevo with the wonderful tour guide Adnan then 6 days touring Balkans areas including Montenegro and Croatia with Ayoub.

    All guides were professional, intelligent and knowledgeable about the areas travelled.

    Our car was modern and most importantly we had so much fun on the trip. The organisation by Ema was flawless.

    This has been on my bucket list for years and was unforgettable, many thanks to you all.

    Custom tour 2 people Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro and Croatia.
  • I traveled through Serbia and Bosnia with two friends, and we hired Sarajevo Funky Tours to take us on three tours: the daylong transfer from Belgrade to Sarajevo, the Srebrenica tour, and the daylong transfer from Sarajevo to Dubrovnik.

    All three trips were incredible and our tour guides were very informative, fun, and helpful with recommendations. We learned so much about the Balkan region and we highly recommend Sarajevo Funky Tours to take you around.

    We will definitely be traveling with them again the next time we’re back.

    Amazing tour through Serbia & Bosnia
  • 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 strongly recommend Funky Tours from Sarajevo.

You can simply relax as in most cases value you receive for your money is amazing. Same is for travel companies. Funky Tours experiences are worth every penny invested.

6. Unbiased stories

Meeting with Hasan Nuhanovic - QA on Srebrenica Genocide

In the Balkans, due to complicated history, everyone have their own understanding of the events from the past.

Being born and raised here, and having survived the 1990ies wars, we can’t allow ourselves to be biased and one sided.

Regardless of who we and you are, our stories are first-hand experiences backed with judicial facts, aiming to help travelers explore Balkans better, and in the same time empower peace and reconciliation.

7. Small group travel

Ever-since Funky Tours philosophy were small groups, maximized experiences. It continues to be so today.

We believe that small group adventure travels enable travelers to easily engage with locals, hassle-freely reach places off the beaten path and in the same time preserve a feeling of traveling independently.

8. Responsible as a business

Sustainable tourism is one of the guiding stars at Funky Tours. Our tours are crafted to give back to the local community.

Either if we are supporting local family businesses in remote parts of Bosnia and Balkans, organize youngsters charity excursions, promote shared tours to kill CO2 emissions and empower climate change awareness, promote gender equality by being woman-led organization, we strive to be as much as possible responsible company, and still are able to create stunning travel experiences for our guests. 

9. High safety standard

We pride ourselves that one of the most important aspects of our business is safety for us, our guests and all stakeholders in travel industry we deal with.

For example: When we organize long day tours or multi-day package tours even for small group size of 2 to 6 travelers, we always arrange driver and a guide. Why do we seriously kill company earnings like that? Simply because there is no compromise in sense of tour quality and safeness.

Balkans are yet to catch up in road development and lower their traffic accidents in compare to rest of the Europe.

That is why Funky Tours makes sure driver watches the road and guide watches our guests, while working as a team.

10. Always exceed expectations

Being blessed to work in an amazing region of Balkans, and being blessed with amazing natural and cultural diversity, we already have great head start.

Later just by adding special “Funky travel sauce” we are creating experiences that always exceed our guests expectations.
