What people are saying about Museum of the Jews of Bosnia and Herzegovina

A great tour! I really enjoyed every minute. Since nobody but me seemed to have the courage to face the seven-hour tour in midsummer, I had a private tour. Elvis, the tour guide, was great: competent, friendly and attentive. I can really recommend him unreservedly. And the tour itself is awesome if you want to see more than just Bascarsija. Culture meets nature meets sport meets the city's recent history. For those who don't have much time but want to see more!

Denis was fantastic and full of energy despite us being a very small group on that particular day. It was great to see his genuine excitement to tell us about the city he loves and calls home. The tour is a great combination of history, religion, food, inspiring characters, and even some humour. It really encourages you to look past Sarajevo's war torn past to consider everything it is in the present and will be in the future. Highly recommended!

Our guide Harris was very friendly and knew a lot of the city and the history of Bosnia. We did drink and did eat as the locals and we enjoyed the tour very much. Thanks!
