It was an interesting day with our good English speaking guide Milan. A safe trip, right through the mountains and NP. Milan provided us with a lot of information and stopped at several beautiful places. You see a lot of the landscape, which makes the excursion even more impressive. A long day, but well worth it!!!

The tour was fantastic! Milan is a passionate Serb who will gladly share his knowledge of the country and recommend other possible activities. What is there to say about the tour? If you are a train nerd, this is a dream come true. The trip through the Western Serbian mountains is simply unforgettable. I also enjoyed the stops we made along the way for fresh raspberry juice, and later Milan showed us a delicious local dish on the way back.

It was a great experience and a very well organized trip. Impossible to cover all these significant attractions in a single day without taking this tour. Milan, our awesome guide with very good knowledge and explained all the stuffs in details. He is always available for any support even after the trip. Off curse it was a long drive but he managed his best. The weather was not in our favor during the first half so missed one view point due to fog.
