What people are saying about Pomoravlje District

My girlfriends and I had the perfect trip with the guide Stefan. The most engaging guide I have ever experienced! We had booked a private trip so we were just us four girls in the car. Super cool! The monasteries were very beautiful and definitely worth a visit. The same goes for the waterfall and the good lunch restaurant. For me, however, the biggest experience was the cave which was really overwhelmingly beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour - especially if you can get Stefan as a guide.

Wonderful day spent with Vladimir exploring Eastern Europe. While the visits to each monastery and the caves were great, spending time with Vladimir was the highlight. Kind, knowledgeable, and a great driver. Truly a fantastic day!

Great activity and our driver was really helpful and nice! He told us interesting facts about the places we visited and about Serbia and even told us where we could go out after the tour.

Miloš was very knowledgeable and a great guide. Highly recommend this tour to see medieval history and natural beauty that Serbia has to offer.

Alexender was a very good guide & explained every thing in detail. So we could enjoy the trip.
