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

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 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.

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.
Mr Ahmed is a wonderful guide and really knew the history. We will come again to Sarajevo to visit more interesting places and will contact him again for another extensive tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rashid for wonderful company and pleasent time. I will be glad to host you again in Sarajevo.

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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Matt & Erica it was peasure to do the tours with you... Greetings from Sarajevo :D

Knowledgeable and perceptive. Ahmed was able to describe personally his family's experience during the war. Great command of English, able to express facts and emotions of surrounding area history. I give him my top recommendation.
Very amazing tour, I highly recommend Ahmed if you are in Sarajevo. His English is excellent and his knowledge of history makes the tour come alive. I look forward to my next trip to Bosnia, I would use his services again!

Ahmed enhanced our knowledge of the Siege of Sarajevo with his intelligence and thoroughness. We gained an appreciation and deep respect for the people of Sarajevo through one of their own. An exceptional tour.
