The guide (Jovan) was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to make everyone on the tour feel welcome and comfortable. The restaurant chosen for this tour combines excellent selection of Serbian traditional dishes with a feel of home made food and amazing views of Danube gorge and Serbian country side. The tour is a nice combination of amazing historical sites and beautiful views, though I think it could be made even more memorable with addition of a couple of viewpoint stops to highlight the amazing views of the Djerdap gorge and Danube.
It was a day full of surprises. The Golubac fortress is a wonder in itself, while the Lepenski Vir archaeological site is amazing, Europe’s oldest settlement. We then enjoyed a sumptous lunch in a hidden local eatery on a hill overlooking the Danube with Romania on the other side. Our guide, Alex (aka as Ernesto Guevarra of Belgrade) was fantastic and very informative. Thank you also to our good and patient driver, George. Serbia is amazing!
Our guide, Stefan, was excellent and went the "extra mile" in telling us about the history & background of all the places we visited on the tour. He and our driver were adaptable and worked hard to make the tour a great experience despite the on-and-off rainy weather. This tour to Eastern Serbia should be a "must do" for any tourist to Belgrade who enjoys nature.
Stefan was an insightful, funny, and highly likable guide. The sites were well chosen and the time dedicated to each was just enough for us to enjoy it without feeling that we're missing something or that we want to move on already. Will definitely book another tour with this company.
The tour has stunning scenery and is definitely worth checking out if you are in Belgrade. The tour guide does an excellent job explaining the history behind all of the sites and you get to appreciate just how much history there is in the region. Highly recommend!
