Amazing 12 days tour of the Balkans
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. The way they organize the trip and the activities was just impeccable. Ema would be checking on us regularly to make sure that our trip is going well. We had an excellent tour driver Faris, and guide Adnan. They are very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, fun to be around with, and really took good care of our group of five the entire 12 days. We are foodies, and they sure know how to make good restaurant recommendations. Sarajevo, and Bosnia and Herzegovina are must see places, full of history, and natural beauty. Highly recommend Sarajevo Funky Tours.
I was looking for tours to Croatia and Montenegro and came upon them. I knew next to nothing about Sarajevo except for the war. Ema communicated very well all throughout the process. 5 of us went as visitors and left as friends. Our 11 night private tour through Bosnia/Herzegovina, Croatia and Montenegro was excellent. Faris, our driver had very good restaurant choices. Adnan, our guide was very informative and attentive. Both were a joy to be with on our entire journey as they both had a wonderful of humor! Our 4 star hotels were very clean, comfortable and modern. Our 5 star hotel in Dubrovnik was luxurious. Thank you Ema/Sarajevo Funky Tours! See you, Adnan and Faris! We are the Beliebers! People need to go to Bosnia and Herzegovina. I highly recommend this company!
