Amazing and explorative tour with a wonderfully informative guide Milica. The Resava cave was beautiful with an interesting arrangement of stalactites & stalagmites. The Manasija Monestry was full of history and on a beautiful ground. The Lisine Waterfall was picturesque and for those visiting do visit the restaurant beside the waterfall for some wonderful local food as well.

Was a fantastic trip. Our guide, Milos, spoke perfect English. During the low season we were the only 2 guests, so a private trip. Milos told us a lot about Serbia and the places we visited. Everywhere we have been, even in the cave, he provided us with perfect guidance and all interesting information. The monastery and cave are definitely worth a look and don't forget to enjoy the journey through the beautiful landscape.
