The other side of sarajevo is her majestic mountains. Reaching the peak of Trabevic Mountain was an absolutely amazing experience. You will be in safe hands with Ahmed and learn its role during the seige, among other things. Stimulating conversations and his invaluable perspectives on various issues en route were enlightening. Highly recommend. Thank you Ahmed!

6 out of 5, intelligent, articulate, a stimulating conversationalist, geopolitically informed, amazing command of history of the Balkans, master problem solver, able to custom build changes to planned itinerary on the fly, a fascinating renaissance man, the absolute best guide I have ever encountered, able to snatch victory for me from the jaws of defeat climbing Vihren Peak Bulgaria, an incredible 12 days, explained the war to me over the 12 days that provided me with real insight into the how and why

We had a fantastic tour of Mostar - and we were glad that we had Ahmed with us. He quickly became a very good friend. His knowledge of history is unparallel and it was definitely one of the best tours we have had ever. We never felt as if we were meeting Ahmed for the first time and it was super interacting with him. We had lunch at the Buna Water Springs and then sat at the Dervish house - and the experience was just heavenly!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pawan for this great review. It's much easier to deliver a good tour when you have that pleasant guests eventually you become friend with. Best wishes from Sarajevo.

We had a wonderful time with Ahmed. His masters in history came in handy as we discussed not just the history of Bosnia and the Balkans but the history of Europe as well. He had great perspective and insight into so many historical events. Our hike to the top of Trebevic Mountain was enjoyable. Since we visited Sarajevo in February, we hiked through ice and snow. Ahmed took good care of us every step along the way and we returned safely. We highly recommend this tour to all energetic travelers.

Ahmed was one of the best guides I've had in any city! He agreed to take us on a walking tour last minute, and was so friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable about this incredible city and country. He was very open to answering all the questions we had, and gave us some amazing food and travel recommendations after the tour! Highly, highly recommended!! Thank you again, Ahmed!

We spent a nice time with Ahmed. He showed us the most important landmarks of Sarajevo. He is very knowledgable and passionate about his profession. We learnt a lot about the history of his country which he explained us in an exciting way and answered all our questions. He also recommended us authentic places to try the local cuisine. We had a great time in Sarajevo! :)

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

We were in Sarajevo mid September 2018, travelling in a big family of 9. We had fun and memorable time in Sarajevo with Ahmed. Through him we appreciate what's Sarajevo likes, beyond its charm and beautiful scenery. Ahmed shared insight on Sarajevo history and his personal (and his family) experiences along the walk, which brought different perspective on this city and its people. We felt connected to the city so much so that we are planning to return in future!

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 is most friendly, professional and helpful, and he walked us through the history of Sarajevo from WWI to the most recent wars by visiting places as well as sharing his personal stories which are most touching. Ahmed is one of the best local guides we have met.

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.

It was great to have such a company. Ahmed showed us everything we wanted and of course much, much more. He's very helpful (we didn't ask, but he brought a kid seat, since we were travelling with our 5 years old son) and friendly, has great knowledge of history and social issues, knows best restaurants & cafes and trust me - he's the best driver ever! U don't want to see the mountain roads (actually paths) we drove through ;) Thank you Ahmed for your time and engagement and good luck for your future!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ania, this is one of the biggest advantages of being a guide, you can meet nice people and spend great time with them. TOUR GUIDE - BEST JOB EVER :)

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

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.

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.
