The tour was very good. We received a lot of information and interesting stories. Milica is a great guide and knows her stuff very well. We basically had a private tour as no one had registered for the tour that day. That was of course another plus point for us. We would definitely recommend the tour.

Bojan was a great guide with a lot of historical knowledge. He communicated this very authentically, so that you could listen and follow him very well. The tour lets you see underground places you wouldn't otherwise be able to access. It is very cool there even on hot days. At the end there was a traditional schnapps and a nice end to the tour. I would recommend the tour to anyone who enjoys history!

The Guide Milan was just great. So much knowledge and so many stories to tell. The tour went away too fast. Still could be walking and listening to the history of Belgrad. The underground walks were fascinating. Of course the bunker from Tito's time was outstanding. So were the other locations. 3 hours went by like a few minuts. Highly reomendation.
