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

The name of our guide was Arna. She really was the perfect guide! She told us so much about the situation and history of Jews, interreligious dialogue, the siege/war in the 90s and the current situation. She answered all of our questions and shared with us her intensely reflected, honest, broad and really insightful perspectives - and she did all of that in such a humble and caring manner. I definitely recommend doing this tour with her. The tour and what she shared was definitely one of the highlights of my stay in Sarajevo!

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!

Thank you for the extremely competent tour of Sarajevo on the subject of "Jewish heritage". Above all, I would like to thank Ana, who also gave me valuable answers to many other questions about Sarajevo. It was a great pleasure for me to be able to do this tour with her. She was a competent interlocutor for me, the likes of which one seldom meets.

I went on such an amazing tour today! We walked to all these sites, and the guide gave some much amazing information. The Ashkenazi synagogue was closed, so instead we went to other interesting places which was fantastic! I recommend this tour if your looking for interesting information and great company!
