We had an excellent tour with Ahmed. First in the old town with a history of the Ottoman Empire then up to check out some beautiful city panoramas before heading to the Tunnel of Hope where Ahmed explained the siege of Sarajevo peppered with personal family stories of his own. Ahmed is obviously passionate about history and his country and we felt so lucky to have him as a guide. Many, many thanks

Ahmed did an excellent job. We met at the hotel as arranged. He was on time and we walked for two hours through Sarajevo. He was always pleasant and provided a wealth of information about the city and its history. Everything went smoothly.

Prompt, friendly, extremely knowledgeable. Ahmed gave us a great tour covering history, art, architecture and everything in between. Much valuable information was presented really well so we gained a detailed & thorough understanding of the country & its history. He covered more than we expected and made our trip so much more worthwhile. 5 stars is not enough!

Ahmed who has a degree in history was terrific. Rather than go to the tunnels to see the Seige we went to a museum to see the story and then the old city. The highlight was standing on the corner where Archduke Ferdinand was shot while Ahmed made the whole episode come alive for us .You are lucky if you can get him to be your guide.

Ahmed was fabulous. He is very personable and easily adapts to his surroundings making you feel very comfortable. Short on time, but wished to have done an adventure trip with him as he does that as well. Anyone who is a history geek, adventure nut, or interested in current times, Ahmed is a no brainer. Luke

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Luke, it is really motivating to have guests like you guys!

Ahmed was an absolutely fantastic guide, a young knowledgeable history expert and at the same time friendly and chatty young guy. He is a true Sarajevo legend, passionate about history and passionate about his hometown. If you are looking for a great guide and a great Sarajevo experience you can't choose anybody better than Ahmed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs. Lidija for such a nice comment. It's been my pleasure to be your guide.

Ahmed was absolutely fantastic, we are so glad we found him and booked a tour! Without his knowledge and first hand stories we wouldn't have the understanding we now have of the Siege of Sarajevo. He covered 3 major conflicts and hundreds of years of history, his knowledge is impressive! Ahmed was on time and so accommodating with our one year old, even providing a baby seat for the drive. We cannot recommend Ahmed enough and would definitely look to do other tours with him on our return to Bosnia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elyce, thank you for such a nice comment. Inspiration is something that leads every tour guide towards providing the best service for their clients, which is easier to achieve with people with such positive energy, such as yours. Your baby reminded me of my Asja sitting in the baby seat. I wish you all the best in your future travels and hope to see you soon.

Fantastic day hike tour to Vijenac peak - Ahmed was very familiar with the mountains and paced the hike according to the fitness levels of the participants. Lots of opportunities for great pictures. Shared history of Sarajevo and Bosnia in general and highlighted major landmarks along the way. Great day out. Highly recommended!

We had a perfect day in the beautiful, unspoilt Bjelasnica mountain range learning about the area as Ahmed told colourful local folk stories . With the blue sky and sunny weather the glorious autumnal colours were amazing as we walked to the edge of Rakitnica canyon. The day ended with rustic home cooked food at the Koliba cafe in Umoljani - local lamb with potatoes and still warm home made bread and cheese washed down with mountain spring water and sarejevska pivo and Ahmed's charming company. Thank you

This was a fantastic way to see the Old Town in Sarajevo. Ahmed was a friendly and extremely knowledgeable guide who also made the tour really enjoyable with lots of extra details about what has happened historically in Sarajevo. What also was beneficial was the fact that he grew up in Sarajevo during the recent times of conflict and was able to put his personal touches on what life was like in the 1990's.

His wealth of historical perspective earned from his Masters in History enhances the tours. He has a winning personality and effectively communicates on a variety of subjects.

My tour with Ahmed was wonderful. He is a historian intellectual so provided detailed commentary on much of the history of the city, answering all my questions with thought and clarity and providing unique insight into many things. We had very thought provoking discussions in the end. Highly recommend his tours if you want something special and more than an average city tour. I will be booking more from him when I return to Sarajevo.

Absolutely spectacular. Ahmed was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Sarajevo and the region in general. He showed us all the important sites while providing plenty of unique and interesting stories which is what we wanted. He was very flexible and accommodating to our interests. He was kind enough to pick us up from the bus station and take us to the train station. I highly recommend Ahmed for anyone wanting to enjoy all that Sarajevo has to offer. We had a great time!Thanks!

We were very satisfied with Mr Ahmed. Speak very very good English and very knowledgeable. Able to describe the complex political scenario of the Bosnian war and relate it to the historical context of the Bosnian culture and civilisation itself (capatalising on his academic backgroud in history to the fullest, which is very relevant to the Mostar visit). Equally important, punctual, obliging and respectful. Highly recommended.

I truly can't say enough great things about Ahmed and the tour. We weren't originally planning on taking a tour in Sarajevo, but are so thankful we changed our minds and contacted Ahmed at the last minute. He was the perfect guide: extremely knowledgable, super friendly, incredibly informative and really had a knack for tailoring the tour to match our interests. I would highly recommend Ahmed to my friends and family.

Ahmed was a wonderful guide. As a master history grad he has all the knowledge on Sarajevo as well as all a real feel for the city that only a resident can bring. The tour was packed full of information, dates, names along with anecdotes and interesting vignettes about the places we visited and the people associated. We stopped for cevapi in the middle and a coffee and the end. Thoroughly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanx Sean, it's always pleasure to be with positive peole like you guys :D

We had a FANTASTIC time touring with Ahmed on the Sarajevo Under the Siege tour! He was so friendly and informative and you could tell how much he enjoyed relaying all the important history as we browsed the history museum. He also did a great job inserting amazingly interesting personal anecdotes from his life in Sarajevo during and after the war. We left knowing so much more about what it was actually like to live through this tumultuous time. I would highly recommend his tour!
