The tour with Bojan was excellent. He went out of his way to tell us everything we wanted to know about Serbia. The boat tour on the Danube enhances the fortress's visit, which offers different perspectives and even glances across the border to Romania. I would very much recommend this as a refreshing excursion outside the city!

Our guide was very well informed and gave us a broad history of Serbia from its inception as a state to the modern Serbia of today. She was also open to a range of related questions, most of which she responded to very knowledgeably.

The view on the cruise was beautiful, we were lucky because it was warm nor cold. I drank the blue lagoon from the ship, which I would recommend. And it was a pleasant experience talking to our guide.

For me this tour made my whole vacation much more interesting! I had Milan, a very well prepared guide, ready to answer any question related to history and more!

The cruise was beautiful! Mosi our guide was super friendly and very knowledgeable - he really looked after me well. Would absolutely recommend this tour!
