We absolutely loved this tour. A lot of history for one day trip. You get the impression that the time does not exist. At certain point you don't know anymore who was here first:mammoths, lepenski vir civilisation,Serbs,Romans,Othomans etc. One thing is certain though, as our kind and very knowledgeable tour guide Milan said, we are the only ones that stayed and continue to exist in this malting pot of civilisations.

Great tour with an awesome guide

The tour was fantastic, and we were exposed to a lot of Serbian history and culture. Our guide, Nemanja, was amazing; super friendly and very knowledgeable. We talked almost non-stop about everything related to Serbia, and he answered all our questions ranging from history to best bars in Belgrade! I highly recommend the tour and this guide!

The tour is very interesting and well organized, all three of the proposed sites are worth visiting, especially the Golubac fortress. Our guide, Miroslav, was simply perfect. Kind, nice, he has not lost an opportunity to tell us anecdotes (in impeccable English) and give us information and interesting news. He was very punctual, he satisfied our every request, and he decidedly enriched the tour itself. Highly recommended.
