We did the tour without any deeper knowledge about the 1984 Olympics and we were surprised what impact it had for the people and the city – until these days. Our guide was super friendly and tried to give us all the answers to our questions. We visited the Olympic hall, the skiing mountain, the destroyed Olympic hotel, the remains of the ski jump venue and the bobsleigh in a mountain with a perfect view over Sarajevo.

Again I booked this tour on a private one to one tour with my guide and now friend Senad. He was excellent and a pleasure to spend time with and is very knowledgeable of his country. The mountains are absolutely stunning and are set up well for winter skiing. I managed to get Senad onto the ski lift for a journey up the mountain and past the Olympic ski jumps. Such beautiful views and of course Bosnia is blessed with awesome summer weather as well as perfect winters for skiing. After our ski lift we sat and had a Bosnian coffee and talked at the cafe . Senad was great company and a good representation of the friendly helpful staff Meet Bosnia Travel employ. He took me to a mosque in the mountains built by the defending soldiers in the war and WOW !! an amazing place and hidden location you would never find unless directed. Its this type of extra service I got from this company on all 6 of my days using them to show me around and educate me. Another must for mountain lovers and peaceful stunning views . There’s even a playground and a ride or two for the kids and a football pitch in the summer at the base of the ski jumps. Another location and tour worth taking without doubt
