          Wonderful full day around Belgrade
          Our tour for 8 friends was amazing! We had Dragona as our guide. She Explained everything about what we were seeing in such a knowledgeable and friendly way. We all came away more informed and impressed. Thank you Dragona.

          Fantastic 2 days with Victor Tours! Absolutely worth it!!
          Our private tour company contracted Victor Tours for 2 different day tours in Serbia. We did the 3 fortresses and Winery tour and the cave and monasteries tour. We were so lucky to have Jovan as our guide! Both trips were incredible, and I'd recommend both. Jovan was an excellent driver and recommended amazing local restaurants for lunch. He provided excellent suggestions for local cuisine too! His knowledge and perspective of ancient history and modern history was informative and comprehensive. I would absolutely recommend Victoe Tours and Jovan!

          This was a great place to visit, Constantine our tour guide was excellent, the only thing it was a missing information about how to prepare for the tour, like people should bring their own water or snacks since is a long tour, there is no stop for people to buy their own refreshments

          Explore beyond Belgrade with Victor Tours!
          Constantin was a really great tour guide and was open to any and all questions. He's super knowledgeable and made a lot of jokes which I really liked. The best part was the wine tasting in Sremski Karlovci. Unfortunately, I forgot the woman's name, but she was so sweet, and the wine was tasting. It puts Serbian wines on the map. Overall, I think it's enough time to see the sights, and get a feel for northern Serbia, just make sure to have breakfast before the wine tasting ;)

          Belgrade short vacation
          You can go to the city from Belgrade Nikola Tesla airport in several ways. We preferred a taxi, the taxi fare between the airport and the city is 25-30 Euros. Belgrade local traffic is very gracious. It doesn't take much time to go from one place to another. However, since we stayed in the city center, we walked to many places or took the publicbus sometime . Their food is delicious and affordable. Portions are quite large. You can eat some portions for two people. There are not many historical monuments in the city of Belgrade. But Nikola Tesla's house is quite interesting. Also , St. Sava cathedral is worth seeing place... You can see the view where the Danube and Sava rivers meet from Kalemegdan park.

          Great value for money, fantastic way to spend a day in Serbia
          This trip was great, we did a lot of things during the day. My favourite part was wine tasting, I regret not bringing check in luggage because it's not possible to bring any bottles with you and the wine was absolutely amazing! Dragana has been a great guide, super knowledgeable and just a lovely lovely person. I would say this trip is a must-do when you're in Serbia

          Western Serbia tour
          I had the best time on this tour. Although it was rainy and snowy, it was still amazing. Our guide, Milos, had buckets of info regarding Serbias history and where we went. Thanks for a great day. I fell in love with Western Serbia

          Excelent!!!!
          It was a great experience. Uros, the guide, was very kind, he knows a lot about geography, history and he also explains very well. He is dedicated and also gave time to take pictures, and helped with the best spots. We had lunch at a very tradicional place, explained the different kind of foods and suggested what to eat. Highly recommended!!!

        Picked up from our accommodation and we set off south and had a quick stop at a roadhouse for coffee and lollies/chocolate. We soon turned off the main road towards the east and the roads deteriorate quickly. We pass through many small villages which have the houses built very close to the road. Probably a hang over from the days of horse and cart and some of the houses and outbuildings definitely are of that era. The houses vary from very old to recent, from small to mansions. Our first stop was Viminacium Archaeological Park which is an area that has several archaeological digs happening. The main sites are covered by a large cover to protect them from the weather. In the first one we also ventured underground to view some frescoes and this involved walking through tunnels only about 4 feet high. The guide told us about the park in Serbian and Jelica translated for us. Also saw a mammoth skeleton. Next stop was Golubac where we were due to have a traditional Serbian lunch however the restaurant was closed so we went to Zlatna Ribica restaurant which was a bit upmarket but had a very nice meal and at a very good price.
        After lunch we headed to Golubac Fortress however we arrived at 2:10 and the fortress closed at 2:00 pm, so we only got to see the fortress from the front gate of the complex. Disappointed!! We did a drive through the Iron Gate Gorge however we did not really think of it as a gorge, just a wide river with steepish sides but not cliffs. We then headed back to Belgrade where we arrived at about 5:00 and was dropped at our accommodation. 3 out of 5 as we missed the fortress which was one of the main reasons we picked this tour.

        Very pleasant tour, very good guide. The castle is worth seeing,moreover it's situated in a very nice place. Then, the stop at Vir archeological site was very interesting and finally having lunch in a local family restaurant was a must. I highly recommend this tour.

        It was an amazing day. Jelica, our tour guide,
        did a fantastic job she was very enthusiastic about everything she described. I loved our lunch spot which was not really a restaurant but was someone’s house and it was so authentic and fun. The fortress is huge and so amazing to see. Lepenski Vir, an amazing archeological site, was also a big surprise and very professionally showcased. If it weren’t for this tour I probably would not have known about any of these attractions so thank you Victor Tours!

        I'm an American woman traveling solo. I feel very safe in Serbia and really enjoyed this tour. The guide was extremely knowledge, attentive and spoke beautiful English.

        The fortress was incredibly interesting - so much history.

        The Lepenski museum was really great - remains from 7500 BC!

        My favorite part was the lunch at this fabulous restaurant on the Danube. It's also an open art gallery, and the food was incredible. It made me think of my Grandma's cooking. If you like authentic, homemade European cooking - this is the place.

        Overall, wonderful experience and highly recommended.

        I recommend this tour to anyone who likes castles, history, and ancient cultures. The tour is focused mainly on these aspects, so do not expect a walk through nature. However, these aspects are handled brilliantly. Our tour guide was fluent in english, friendly, great driver and extremely knowledgable about not only Serbian history and sights but also about the neighboring countries or Serbian economics and politics. Thank you!

        In this tour, you will see all the must-sees along Eastern Serbia. The drive is incredible with gorgeous view of the Danube and the forts are beautiful with incredible history. The lunch stop you will make is probably the most scenic lunch you will ever have! Don't miss it! Nevena and Ivan were great tour guides and made sure all our questions went answered. Don't think twice - book this trip!

        We did the day trip to Iron Gate, Golubac fortress with Damyan from Serbia Travel Service as our guide.

        There was an overturned truck on the highway out of Belgrade and Damyan managed to take the inside roads and show us some additional sights on the way.

        The boat ride on the Danube was exhilarating and Golubac fortress is quite picture perfect.

        A great day out and thanks to Damyan to make the trip lively, entertaining and informative.

        I have just done the trip with Jelica today and it is undoubtedly the only option I would recommend if you are looking at having a tour to Golubac. We had such an amazing group and also Jelica made sure she entertained us, educated us in an interesting manner through out the trip. She is very knowledgeable about literally anything and everything. I am surely going to book the other tours with Jelica and Victor tour. Thank you so much for making this memorable

        Already on the day before the tour we were contacted via whatsapp when and where we will be picked up, could clarify some last questions. Having the contact data of our guide allowed us to inform them when we were a bit late with our breakfast (thanks for your understanding!). During the fast but comfortable ride our guide introduced us to the destinations and answered many questions we had about the region, Serbia’s history and current events. The lunch was the great and final highlight of the tour! With our guide Jelica we had a lot of fun, and apart from sharing a lot of information about the Golubac castle and Lepinski Vir she also had some Belgrade-recommendations, Thanks a lot!
