Was a fantastic trip. Our guide, Milos, spoke perfect English. During the low season we were the only 2 guests, so a private trip. Milos told us a lot about Serbia and the places we visited. Everywhere we have been, even in the cave, he provided us with perfect guidance and all interesting information. The monastery and cave are definitely worth a look and don't forget to enjoy the journey through the beautiful landscape.

Amazing and explorative tour with a wonderfully informative guide Milica. The Resava cave was beautiful with an interesting arrangement of stalactites & stalagmites. The Manasija Monestry was full of history and on a beautiful ground. The Lisine Waterfall was picturesque and for those visiting do visit the restaurant beside the waterfall for some wonderful local food as well.

We were only 2 in the tour. Turned out to become a private tour with Milan as our guide/driver. He was passionate and very knowledgeable of history and culture. (A true patriot as well) We picked up Jovana, an understudy who turned out to be a good compliment to accompany my wife… All in all. A wonderful experience. Highly recommend this company and staff. Bravo.

It was amazing trip with Milan. He made sure not to miss any information regarding the spots and history. We enjoyed through out the day. Restaurant was wonderful where we had our lunch. Cave was mesmerising beauty which I have never seen before. Lovely Serbian people and beautiful places to visit.. loved it. Will come back soon.

The trip was wonderful. Milan was a brilliant guide - very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The history of the monastery was amazing and and the cave and waterfall amazing to see. Very fun day and definitely recommend
