Our escorted tour of Bosnia is a glimpse into a country of contrasting beauty and darkness. On the one hand, their torturous past holds vivid memories, and on the other the stunning beauty of the countryside, waterfalls and even Pyramids are a sight to be held.
From Bosnia’s many rivers and fertile land comes its wonderful cuisine, Local meat, fruits, cheeses and honey are organically grown, and giving back to the local economy is an important part of the Bosnian culture. On our tour, we visit sights such as the Gazi Husref Bey’s Waqf, Shehids Cemetery, Travnik Fortress, the Esma Sultana Mosque and the Bosnian Pyramids in the historic town of Visoko to name a few. We also pay a visit to the beautiful town of Mostar and Srebrenica, the backdrop for some of Bosnia’s darkest moments.
