I thought Dragana did a great job in walking us through the history associated with each stop in the tour in an accessible and engaging way. Museum of Yugoslavia is an interesting destination and even the trolley ride was a pleasant experience of its own

Dragana my guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about history and I had a great time going across the city hearing her tell me about the past. Was good to enter into the museum as part of the tour to add more visual context to the information.

Bojan weaved in history beautifully with his own life stories. It was a unique experience, and one that we learnt so much from. The pace was just right, and we never felt rushed. Bojan was patient with all our queries.

Omg what a amazing tour by a brilliant young lady.She was so friendly explained everything in great detail.We even chatted about our own country.Well worth doing this tour.Pat & Mainard Dublin Ireland

Dragana knows her history and runs a smooth and fluent tour. She answered all our questions and gave an insider's view in real death. I would recommend her to anyone with no doubts.
