General

If you are looking for a Belgrade private city tour which will give you an overview on most attractive landmarks of Belgrade and an introduction to recent history of Serbian capital, then this one should be your pick. Even if you are not that much of a history buff, this tour can also be a fun and easy way to get to know Belgrade’s main attractions. If you are interested in more distant history of the city, as well as more in depth exploration try Belgrade between Ottomans and Austro-Hungarians tour.

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.

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!

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.

We learned a lot about Belgrade spending a few hours together with our guide Dana. We can highly recommend Belgrade for beginners for first time visitors to Belgrade.

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.
