My family and I booked a Day trip from Skopje to Nis , Serbia on our vacation . This was a full day trip with a great driver named Mickey #1 and also a great tour guide who showed us The Skull Tower and the Cegar fortress. I’ve never seen anything like the skull tower and the story behind it and also the entrance into the Cegar Fortress was a nice story , walk and tour . After our walking tour our driver took us to a great restaurant where we had delicious local food and wine . Visiting Serbia was definitely a unique experience and we are glad we did it . Special thanks to our driver Micky who brought us water and fruit for our long trip , Micky made it a special day and drove us safely all day .
