In the old town of Sarajevo, meet your Sarajevo Siege survivor guide and begin your 4-hour small-group tour. Head to the War Tunnel Museum.

While traveling, observe the Markale Massacre sites, the Bosnian Presidency building, Sniper Alley, Marshall Tito Barracks, the Bosnian Parliament, and other sights that relate to the Sarajevo Siege.
