War Tunnel Tour in Sarajevo

Summary

Make your way to a centrally-located meeting point where this tour begins, then join a guide and group for a trip through Sarajevo war sites and landmarks. Get an overview of the city from a panoramic overlook, and learn the basics of the Siege of Sarajevo, which stretched from 1992 to 1995. Continue to a cemetery where victims of the war are buried, and learn what life was like during the siege, as residents coped with scarce food, water, electricity, and gas. Visit some of the city’s main landmarks, many of which sustained heavy shelling: see City Hall and the National Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina, then pass the National Museum, the Presidency Building, Skenderija Market, and the Zetra Olympic Hall. Walk through Sniper Alley, and along tunnels used during the war. This tour includes admission to the Tunnel Museum, whose exhibits tell the story of the conflict, including a video about UN intervention during the Siege of Sarajevo. After visiting the Tunnel Museum, drive back to your original departure point, where this tour concludes.

About operator:

When we first started providing guiding services in Sarajevo in 2000, there were just a few of us. We were full of enthusiasm, creative ideas and ready to work hard, apply effort and learn. With the passage of time some of us went on different paths, finding different business spheres, but those who stayed, they stayed completely the same - creative, professional and dedicated to something they like. All of these years brought us a lot of friendships, business contacts, meeting with many important people and delegations. We can proudly say that any important event in Sarajevo during the last decade wasn't without us. We just want it to be the same. We want our guests to become and remain our friends, to visit us again, and once they leave our city or country they should take away with themselves only positive memories. We guarantee that with the Insiders you will always get more than you'd expect.
