We enjoyed a lot our private day tour with Vesna. She fully met our expectations and also was very flexible. The driver Goran was also very friendly and drove the car to our best comfort. We visited the Avala tower the day before this tour and wanted to see the House of Flowers instead which is the place where Tito is buried. Vesna adopted the program very professionally to our needs. The House of Flowers is a place I would recommend to visit if you are interested in the newer Serbian history.

We have been on many tours in our trips throughout the world, but we must say Stefan gave us one of the most comprehensive tours we have ever had. It would be a mistake if you did not take this tour to discover Belgrad

A very informative experience. Our tour guide Aleksandar was very knowledgeable and gave us a detailed description on the city in such a short time. I definitely recommend this to anyone visiting 1st time

Stefan is marvelous! He explain everything in details. The tour itself represents most of "places to visit" in Belgrade

Stefan was amazing! Great tour, lots of information and fun
