What people are saying about Sarajevo

The fact that this tour isn't as popular as the others is what intrigued me to begin with. The scenery is outstanding. Andricgrad and Kurstendorf are fascinating projects and definitely worth visiting. The train ride is also a must-see, kind of like time traveling in the past to experience how people used to travel. Visegrad is a beautiful city and the bridge is sureal. The tour guide was as good as can be, friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and just an overall pleasant down to earth individual. I'm glad I booked and wish to bring some friends along next time!

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!

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.

We had the best time with our guide kenan, really nice to get to know a big part of Bosnia and Herzegovina with a friendly guide that showed really interesting places. Also very handy if you want to enjoy the entire day and at the same time get a transfer to Dubrovnik.
