Watch footage, enter the "Tunnel of Hope" escape route at the Tunnel Museum, and visit the war-ravaged 1984 Olympic bobsled track in the nearby hills—once a major battlefront.

Best tour in Sarajevo!

Mac was great at making everyone in the tour feel comfortable to explore such a hard hitting subject of the Bosnian war. We learned so much of Sarajevo and Mac’s personal anecdotes made it very personal. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Sarajevo. We also then did the copper smithing workshop which was fantastic as well as the free walking tour which was very personalised and we learned so much from it. 100% recommend them, you will walk away with brilliant memories and many valuable lessons.
Well organized tour

Excellent choice! My tour guide Mak was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. He knew not only the history of his country but answered all questions we had! I highly recommend this tour you’ll not be disappointed! Art & Tours have a good asset (Mak) to the company! Kudos! 👍🏽

guide was on automatic pilot. rapidly repeated facts and figures. Bosniak point of view. no nuance or depth to canned tour.

I was fortunate enough to go on this tour with Mak. Even though I was the only one who booked it for that morning they still took me on a private tour and I was so grateful. Mak was an incredible guide and so knowledgeable about the background and the politics of the war and its impact today. I felt honored to hear Mak share some of his personal stories with me. As a graduate student in the US studying the breakup of the former Yugoslavia, Mak was the perfect guide for me to answer all of my nerdy questions and he even shared his book with me. I can't recommend this tour enough, especially with Mak!
I can warmly recommend

A very informative tour about the history and current situation of Sarajevo. Our tourguide (Mak) was very competent in giving us the needed backgroundinformation and added a personal touch to his presentation by sharing his history with the city. We loved the tour... Esra and Albert

Alen did an amazing job showing us around, and describing the historical monuments and locations around Sarajevo. He answered all our questions so well and thoughtfully, and sharing his own experiences was truly incredible. Alen was very thoughtful and accommodating. I highly recommend this tour.
