What Is NOT Included:

- airfare to and from Sarajevo (You make your own reservations - you can make them any way you want, but you might find it easier and CHEAPER to ask trip leader Lisa Adeli - adeli@email.arizona.edu, a master at finding inexpensive flights to the Balkans!!) DO NOT buy tickets for more that $1800 or so. To get the best prices, book tickets to a European destination such as London, Munich, Vienna, Zagreb, or Istanbul. Then get another ticket on a regional flight from those cities to Sarajevo. You may even want to stay over a day or two in one of those locations to break up the travel time and see a new city!      
- a few lunches and dinners that you get on your own
- free time activities
- incidentals and personal expenses
- required travel insurance - we recommend Geo Blue - https://www.geobluetravelinsurance.com/ (more information on the registration page) but I've used Allianz too

Optional additional day/day-trip to site of Srebrenica genocide:

$150 - including transportation in a car or mini-van to and from Srebrenica, meeting with a survivor and visit to the memorial site, meals, and an additional night in the hotel.
