  • Bosnia is a cash-only society. It's rare to find local shops and activities that accept credit cards, so to be safe, always carry cash with you or use one of the ATMs.

    Climb inside the historic Sarajevo Tunnel to see how numerous civilians escaped during wartimes

    The Sarajevo Tunnel was a key lifeline to Bosnians in Sarajevo during the Bosnian War. With the city occupied by the Serbian Army, the tunnel was built in 1993 to help transport people and resources in and out of the city discreetly. The Sarajevo Tunnel Museum extended for 960 meters outside of the city, past the airport, and into two local neighborhoods. It was used to move over 20 million tons of food into the city and help civilians escape, including the President. The house used as the tunnel's northern entrance is converted into a museum established to preserve its history.

The Srebrenica Memorial Center commemorates the lives lost during the Srebrenica Genocide in 1995. Srebrenica Memorial Center is a massive cemetery for over 8.000 people who were tragically killed during the events.

Bosnia Tours When To Visit

Bosnia is a very scenic country with lots of natural sights - the warm climate will give you a better appreciation of it. Bosnia has a mild climate all year long. It experiences warm summers and cool winters.

  • Summer – June to August – Best Season

Reviews for Bosnia Tours and Vacations

Good value for money and meet your expectations.

Natarajan A

The tour was very complete. It included all the places I wanted to visit. It was extremely well organized. The Tour Director was very professional and didn't miss one detail. The guides were knowledgeable. It was a fantastic experience and I can't wait to book my next tour with Cosmos.

Cesar R

This tour with Insight (our eleventh) was excellent. For the most part we visited locations that are off most people's radar and therefore less touristy (the exceptions being Mostar and Dubrovnik). The history and culture of the places visited were interesting. A highlight of the tour was a home dinner with a family in Sarajevo who prepared a delicious meal and shared their experience of living through the Siege of Sarajevo in the 90s. We saw some beautiful scenery as we rode from city to city. We covered a lot of territory and it was worth every kilometer. Our Travel Director Karl was outstanding.
