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.
The trip started a bit late due to some delay from one of the group members. But the guide Jelena and the driver Bogdan more than made up for it. They were extremely pleasant, had great manners and ensured that there were no compromises on the tour. Jelena is a rockstar and is a perfect tour guide. Her ability to mix with people of different cultures makes her immensely likeable. The tour itself was excellent with the highlight been the speed boat ride at the Gorge. highly recommended!!!
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!
We absolutely loved this tour. A lot of history for one day trip. You get the impression that the time does not exist. At certain point you don't know anymore who was here first:mammoths, lepenski vir civilisation,Serbs,Romans,Othomans etc. One thing is certain though, as our kind and very knowledgeable tour guide Milan said, we are the only ones that stayed and continue to exist in this malting pot of civilisations.
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.
