About the tour

Since Sarajevo was under siege from April '92 the stocks of food, weapons and ammunition were already empty by the end of the year. Sarajevo and it's citizens needed a connection to the outside world. Bosnian army came with a brilliant idea during winter 92'-93' to dig a tunnel under the airport that was controlled by the UN to achieve a connection between Sarajevo and the rest of the free Bosnian territory. A small but crucial connection was made, 1m wide, 1,6m high and 800m long, but for Sarajevans it was way bigger than that, it was giving them hope! This tour is the most complete War tour about Sarajevo since you will have the opportunity to visit the Museum "Tunnel of Hope", the most visited War museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina. These are inspiring stories of what a human being is capable to invent, to make, to do, to survive.

Edin handled a very sensitive subject with honesty. His role as an educator cannot be overlooked. Some things were difficult to hear, but how are we to move forward, if we live in ignorance. Well done.

Well put together, with great interaction between guide and guests. He was attentive to the chat, without allowing himself to be too sidetracked. Deeply informative of a difficult subject, without being overly dramatic. Obne of the best guides yet.

It is a privilege being able to learn about the Bosnian War not only from an excellent guide, but also a person who has experienced it during his childhood. Especially because of his personal experiences I admire Dino's objectivity, his fairness and his positive outlook - not sure how many people could guide like this under these circumstances. Thanks, Dino - as hard as it is to listen to you talking about this period of your history as important it is to listen. It is not only education of the mind, but also education of the heart you are sharing with us.
