What to expect from the tour

With this private tour you will discover some interesting stories about two Royal families who had contributed a lot for Serbia to become free and modern country in post Ottoman period. But also you’ll learn about events and general lifestyle from more recent times. During the XIX and in the beginning of XX century, Serbian political scene was very turbulent. Leaders were changed more than ten times. But each leader had left its mark in Belgrade. Nothing less turbulent was later during the XX century.

Tour flow

After #YourSerbiaHost picks you up from your hotel or other address in the city you’ll head to the first sight on the route, plateau in front of the Old palace. The Old palace, today’s City Assembly of Belgrade was constructed in 1884 for the needs of King Milan Obrenovic, first Serbian King after medieval period.

From the plateau where we greet our sportsmen for achieving outstanding results, where we change political regimes and where we celebrate important events we move on to one of the most important streets in Belgrade, which carries the name of Prince Milos Obrenovic. This street holds the most important buildings, such as embassies and ministries, which, at the same time, represent an architecture outdoor exhibition.

Further on we continue to Dedinje, Belgrade’s most prestigious residential area, where Serbian kings had their palaces. Although Serbia was very shortly a kingdom, Belgrade has four palaces. Two of them are situated on Dedinje, Royal palace and White palace. Constructed between two world wars, they were residence of the Karodjordjevic family.

Church of Saint Sava is next stop. This the biggest Orthodox temple in the Balkans, fifth in the world is for sure something you shouldn’t miss while you are in Belgrade. Monumental size and appearance will leave you speechless no matter if you are religious or not.

As we continue from St. Sava temple, we drive along Milan Obrenovic Street and arrive to the Republic Square. Three important edifices stand proudly here: National Theater, National Museum and Monument of Prince Mihailo Obrenovic.

From Republic square we continue on foot through main pedestrian street, Prince Mihailo Street. Most famous for its long promenade surrounded with cafes, restaurants and shops. End of the walk is in the area of King Peter’s street known for Cafe “?” and Church of the Holy Archangel Michael, also known as Orthodox Cathedral.

The very end of our Belgrade private city tour is planned at the oldest tavern in Serbia, Café “?” where we’ll finish our tour with tasting of local traditional drink rakija. Of course for those who are not fans of strong alcoholic drinks there is plenty more of choices for refreshment.

We had a wonderful city overview with a nice mix of walking and driving around. Our guide was wonderful. I highly recommend this company.

I have asked Serbian Private Tours to arrange my COVID vaccination trips to Serbia, as I needed to get vaccination with vaccine which isn't available in Western Europe In Serbia vaccination is available for free for foreigners, and people can choose which vaccine they want to have. The process is very straight forward: I made my request, the company arranged for me a stay in an excellent hotel in the city center, for a very reasonable price. This hotel made application for vaccination on my behalf, completing all the paperwork. I also booked airport transfers to and from the hotel with Serbian Private Tours. The price was very reasonable and the drivers were very punctual, friendly and helpful. All in all, my trip was very comfortable, affordable, straight forward, and I had time and opportunity to discover the beauty of Belgrade city center. I felt so good in Belgrade, almost like at home, and I will definitely will be back, will stay longer and hopefully will see more next time! The vaccination also went very successfully, no side effects or anything, no queues and digital certificate provided by email the same day. There are some foreign companies in Western Europe which also offer this service, but they work quite slow (it takes them long to respond), and their prices are much higher. Miljan from Serbian Private Tours always replies to messages straight away and is super helpful! I can highly recommend this company if you are looking for a vaccination trip to Serbia! I'm sure that just like me, you will fall in love with this country and will want to come again and again! Date of experience: September 2021

The ratings for this company are well deserved. These guys are really good at what they do and taking care of their guests. My parents recently had a city tour and the guide was so helpful and knowledgable and even though my parents speak limited English they still had a great time and had great things to say about the tour and the city. Highly recommend.

Best way to see Serbia! Serbian private tours were fantastic in every way. Our guide Andrija and bus owner Stanko were amazing. So patient as we were a group of 17 including 7 kids! They were so accomodating that they even let our kids have a dancing party on the bus! Kids loved it. Had the pleasure of meeting the owner Miljan once as well. Extremely well-informed and helpful. Guys, use them if you ever plan on going to Serbia.

We got four amazing hours with Vladislav who was the perfect guide. We got a lesson in Serbian history and culture and got to see different building blocks, both historical and modern. We can definitely recommend this tour.

It was an excellent tour. Vlad understood what we already knew, what we wanted to see, and used the four hours very effectively. He knows the city and the history very well. Great communicator.

Having been on many guided city tours over the past twenty or so years we cannot fail to endorse with absolute conviction our city tour conducted by the most professional and personable guide - Vlada. He managed to combine being both informative and charismatic with no questions ever proving too difficult and providing a wealth of information concerning Serbia,Belgrade and its people and history. The tour was conducted at exactly the right pace - we were never rushed and Vlada was more than happy to be extremely generous with the time he gave us. We both came away after the tour commenting on what an enriching experience it was and agreeing that Vlada was indeed"a cut above the rest" The comment is taken from TripAdvisor review page connected to our service, to see the source follow this link.

We spent three wonderful hours with the charming and knowledgeable Miljan, the owner of Serbian Private Tours. Miljan was prompt and clear in his initial email communication and generous with his time. Even before we met, I was confident we could trust him to provide a thorough background to Belgrade and Serbia, listen to our needs and respond accurately to our questions. I only wish we had chosen to do a longer tour, as we would happily have spent more time with Miljan. Serbian Private Tours is one of the reasons we fell in love with Belgrade. Highly recommended!

Vlada was on time, accommodating, and personable as well as knowledgeable. We felt we got an excellent overview of the history and highlights of Belgrade at a very reasonable price for 4 1/2 hours. The hotel they put us in (Townhouse 27) was the nicest we'd had in our travels in the Balkans.

Belgrade is a wonderful city. Our guide Vladislav Jovic was friendly, easy to understand and wanted to share with us his passion for the city. He was prompt in picking us up, made sure we saw all the highlights of the city and shared with us his solid knowledge of the history of the area. Vlada entertained us for a whole day. We all went away with a new appreciation of this wonderful city. You would not be disappointed to have his for your guide!

Nous avons demandé une visite privée pour notre petit groupe d'amis et ne l'avons pas regretté. Nous avons ainsi visité les principales curiosités de la ville et appris beaucoup sur son histoire très mouvementée. Le guide parfaitement francophone et aussi francophile a axé sa visite sur les liens de la Serbie et de la France.

My friend and I travelled to Serbia in April and booked two excursions in Serbia Private Tours "Belgrade for beginners" and "Frushka gora". Our guides Miljan and Dobri (speaks Russian perfectly which was important as we are from Russia) made very interesting excursions, told a lot of unique things about Serbia. Trip orginizing, prifessionalism of the guides, excursions programs, the car in whicn they took us around - everything was awesome. We were in many countries and took part in many excursions and i can surely say that Serbia Private Tours' excursions are one of the best. I wish we had had more time to visit "Mokra gora" and "Zlatibor" but we will come back to beautiful Serbia and go there with Serbia Private Tours. I recommend this agency to everybody.

This is a four hour driving and walking tour of Belgrade that is perfect for the first time visitor(s). My tour guide, Vlada, picked me up promptly at my hotel at 10:00 AM in a comfortable car with A/C and tunes (for those music fanatics out there, Vlada has great taste in music). As there was a chance for rain, Vlada thoughtfully obtained a second umbrella for my usage and insisted on carrying it for me during the entire tour. Vlada took me to the major attractions and professionally provided detailed historical information about each location, as well as the current status, as applicable. Vlada was extremely accommodating in stopping for photo opportunities whenever they arose, and he answered all of my questions thoroughly. The best part of the trip was near the end, but it is a surprise that you must experience for yourself! Because of this tour, Belgrade is now on my list of favorite cities in the world - highly recommended!

Great tour and a fantastic tour guide - Miljan. We saw almost all of the historic sights of Belgrade and learned of their history both recent and ancient. We were soooo glad we booked this tour. A great introduction to Belgrade!

This company is highly rated on Tripadvisor and I agree with that. We took the "Belgrade for Beginners" tour. We were driven around the city by our very knowledgable and personable tour guide Dana stopping at various places and all the while getting interesting commentary about the city and its history. I highly recommend this tour and especially recommend our tour guide Dana.

I was lucky to have Miljan as a guide for my two days in Belgrade. Professionally, he is punctual, flexible, and knowledgeable. Personally, he has a great sense of humor and open-mindedness, and is someone who will make you feel comfortable. Miljan also was very thoughtful, with providing us snacks and drinks for the long drives, and often checking in to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Prior to the trip, he also spends time planning with you over email to make sure he understands your needs. I highly recommend Miljan as a guide.
