Great authentic look into Mostar, past and present
Oct 2021 • Family
Vedad was an excellent tour guide. He brilliantly combined his personal experience with the facts about Mostar’s interesting history. I found it a very engaging tour, which had much more of a conversational aspect than many others I’ve gone on. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Mostar.

Our guide Esmer is perfect for this Mostar War Tour. He speaks with knowledge, passion and above all without toxic nationalism or a spirit of revenge. He would be the perfect politician Bosnia needs. Enjoy him and bring with you a long list of questions.

This tour was impactful...
Feb 2020
My 18 year old daughter and I had the privilege of spending an afternoon with Vedad on the Bosnian War tour. We were so very impressed with Vedad's ability to remain objective despite personal lived experience as a young child in the war. He shared some personal stories, spoke about the history of the region as well as the current political state, and expressed hope for the future. He was incredibly knowledgeable and invited questions and dialogue. This tour advanced my perspective and I am truly grateful for the gifts Vedad gave through his passion, humanity, and hope. Best to you as always Vedad...K and A

Wonderful Personal and Historic Tour
Highly recommend this tour to give a sense of the complex war that devastated Mostar. Our guide Vedad, took us to what was the front lines and to the top of the mountain which gave an amazing view of the city. As he grew up in the city during the war, he further added his memories and his family and insights. He also answered all questions and was highly engaging. Rockstar!

Best tour ever thanks to Vedad!
Sep 2019
We have been on quite a few tours before but this one was the best! We were complete novices at post Tito Yugoslavia history and this and the Balkans conflict was clearly explained to us. His enthusiasm and knowledge spilled out and his informative talk, maps and notes on a white board gave us a clear picture of the chain of events from 1939 to the present day. He collected us by car and we visited a couple of sites in Mostar before going up the mountain above the town to a biking hut which is next door to the zip-wire departure point. There we had an unparalleled view, like the Serbian artillery, of the town and he pointed out the different sectors and landmarks. A fascinating 3 hour experience – very highly recommended if you want to understand the past and what makes Mostar today. Having spoken to others, Vedad’s views were clearly unbiased which we appreciated. Well done Vedad!
