Excellent tour to get to know Belgrade and it's history. Aleksandar, my tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate in his explanation of the history of Serbia and Belgrade. Pickup was punctual from my hotel and all the major sites were covered in the tour. The length of the tour was just right at 3 hours. Some stops and walks along the way, ensure a very enjoyable and interesting tour. Highly recommended.

We had a city tour with Mijalova. He was on time, professional and extremely detailed in his historical narratives. We moved along to every point at a perfect pace and he was extremely accommodating. He was very kind and helpful. He helped us understand as much history as possible within the time frame all while keeping the tour engaging. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in understanding Belgrade’s history in a digestible and personal way. Thank you!

Our guide Alexander was very friendly, kind, pleasant and highly Knowledgeable about of all the periods in the history of Belgrade and Serbia. He brought us closer to the city and also gave us a lot of information's about life in Serbia. The organisation of the tour was professional, Alexander communicated with me the day before and he came and picked me up outside the hotel exactly on time. I would definitely recommended this tour by mini bus and walking because it's a perfect choice to see the different parts of the city, both old and new and get a general knowledge and feel of the culture and the people in Belgrade.
