Visiting so many beautiful places, and learning about the history (especially the Ottomans). It was also a pleasure to meet many native Bosnians and learn directly from them upsetting to hear stories about the Bosnian conflict.
I wanted to visit a part of the world I knew nothing about. I wanted to see a Muslim country in Europe, learn more about its history and see the beautiful scenery of this undiscovered land. Having been there, I would definitely recommend everyone should visit Bosnia and Herzegovina! This trip affected me deeply and I believe it is essential for all Muslims to visit this region, experience what I did and spread the word (which I will certainly do!) Thank you for organising this fantastic tour.Saleema Quraishi, May 2014

The tour guide. She was an important part of the holiday as we spent significant time with her – she was incredibly relaxed, friendly, adaptable and understanding. It was as if we had gone to Bosnia and met an old friend. Her company and expertise certainly enhanced our experience, and I would certainly recommend her specifically to any of my family/friends wanting to go in the future. Also the car was very comfortable and we felt safe with the driver. I have travelled a lot in the past and I chose this country because it was a bit different to the usual holidays and ‘off the beaten track’. The tour itself
is the first I’ve done with Islamic Travels, the idea of looking at the Islamic heritage of a place was very appealing. My friend and I thought we would just give it a go and we are glad we did as we enjoyed it thoroughly, so much so we would recommend to all our friends and families and would certainly come back for another visit. The people in the country make the trip and our tour guide Selma, driver Samir and all the other people we were introduced to by them were fantastic and welcoming. They made us feel very safe and were constantly checking for any issues that might compromise our trip, and we were told that the base in London was regularly checking up on us to see if we ok and enjoying ourselves, which I thought was rather nice.

The Bosnia trip exceeded my expectations, the group was good, Senad, Sahihja, Retno and all the others we met were really good people and guides. The contacts our hosts had made the trip all the more interesting and insightful. The accommodation was really good too. I would and have recommend this trip to others and would do another one of these trips insha Allah.Ayesha Iman_Fisher – May/June 2011

Just a short note to say we had a brilliant time in Bosnia. Great company of companion travellers, just wanted to say for now that it was great on the whole, and gald we went as both our hosts there, Br Senad and Sr Sehija were just so helpful and friendly.Mumtaz Hussain – May/June 2011

We had a lovely trip which exceeded our expectations. We were alhumdulillah in good company -our fellow travellers, and have all become good friends. We learnt alot about our Muslim brothers and sisters in Bosnia, and found bosnia-hertzogovina very scenic and historical. I was pleased to meet such friendly and inspiring people. It is unfortunate the we in the Uk, know so little about what they have suffered and that they continue to face challenges, and could benefit from our support. JazakAllahu khair for organising the trip. Rubina – May/June 2011

Learning about the history and current problems of the region from an experienced guide was invaluable. Visiting historical and cultural sites was another highlight. The visit to the memorial site in Srebenica was extremely harrowing but is essential for all who visit the region to gain an appreciation of the bravery of those who have rebuilt their lives after the war.

Finally, visiting the Nahla Centre in Sarajevo was truly inspiring because of the huge efforts put in by a few women to turn their vision of a fairer society into a reality. I enjoyed travelling with the tour group and learnt a lot from individuals.

I wanted to travel with a group that was familiar with my needs as a Muslim and that would offer me a real insight into the Islamic history of the region. I was also impressed with the details offered on the travel agent’s official website.

Unique experience a must trip for all the Muslims who are concert of the Muslims living in the UK not just UK but world wide.

Bosnia and its people have demonstrated how to fight the Islamic way, they were very careful and very much aware of how Muslims should fight during the war, a very useful lesson to be learned epically for Muslim counties who are currently fighting wars .

Amazing explain of how the Muslims live in a community and especially the way they have managed to take care of the women’s need an example for us in the UK to follow I was blessed to take part on the tour the people of Bosnia are very kind and keen for the Muslims from all round the world to visit them.

I strongly believe that all the Muslims should support them in rebuilding they lives and the country and make Bosnia one of the hottest destination for they holiday
