Tour Flow


Your private tour starts at 9 am from your accommodation and the first stop on the itinerary is Belgrade Fortress, the historical core of the city. From Roman to modern time, walking around Fortress is like traveling through time. Here you will find attractions such as: Ružica Church, Zindan Gate, Despot’s Tower, Victor Monument, Military Museum… #YourSerbiaHost will explain to you all these sights and their importance.

After exploring the Fortress, you will meet and feel Knez Mihailova Street – the most vibrant street in the city center. This pedestrian zone keeps some of the most beautiful architecture and it is a true  „heart of the city“.  While walking and soaking the atmosphere of Knez Mihalova your guide will tell you interesting stories and bring back some old times of this cultural district.

The next stop is a gorgeous Saint Sava Church which dominates over Vracar Plateau and keeps the memory of the most important Serbian saint from the XII century. This stunning white marble church is one of the biggest Orthodox churches in the world. Besides its impressive size, this is also one of the most beautiful churches in Serbia. Its beauty is hidden inside with its interior decoration. Millions of mosaic cubic pieces in thousands of shades make a unique masterpiece of art.


From the urban city center, you will move on to Avala Mountain which is the most popular nature sight in Belgrade. Don’t expect some intensive hiking,  Avala is only 511 m high. It is everyone’s favorite picnic area with a few important landmarks which you are going to explore. First, you will check a monument of the Unknown Hero which was built in the 1930s and has a very intriguing background story.

The second sight is the famous Avala TV Tower (204m high) which is the symbol of the mountain. This tower was destroyed in 1999 by NATO and restored 10 years later. On the very top, you will find an amazing 360 degrees observation deck and a restaurant from which you can enjoy breathtaking views of Belgrade’s great area.

After exploring all these sights of Belgrade and Avala Mountain tour ends and we return to your accommodation or we can drop you somewhere in the city center.

I highly recommend Serbian Private tours. Miljan the owner was very helpful and made the booking process very easy. We also requested to be picked up from our hotel in Ruma and Miljan organized everything for us. Dejan the guide was excellent on both tours. His knowledge about Serbian history is excellent and very easy to understand. We enjoyed every minute of both tours and would highly recommend. Looking forward to book again with Serbian Private tours in the future.

Great tour and friendly tour guide, we saw the places that must be seen in Belgrade (and heard interesting fact of the history), also got a lot of recommendations where to go next days. Very convenient transport, not too much to go by foot (we were with kids). Recommend for sure!

I requested two tours, "Highlights of Belgrade and Avala Mountain Tour" and "Private transfer to Skopje" from Serbian Private Tours. They were very reliable and quick to reply to my email inquiries, so I was able to make the online payment in advance with confidence.

A pleasant time We booked Multi days tour to visit Belgrade, Novi Sad and Subotica. We had a pleasant time each day of the tour. From the booking process, Miljan and Ana was really helpful and cooperative. They also gave suggestion and advise for first-time traveler to Serbia, like me and my husband. On the tour days, Andrija (Andrew) was also helpful and cooperative, he helped us took pictures and always checking on us incase we need something. He shared about Serbia culture and history without making us bored. Date of experience: July 2022

Miljan was cery good at keeping us informed and addressing all our questions by e-mail... We booked a Yugo drive to Avala tower.. Miljan was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Yugo cars, and of Serbia and Yougoslavia in general... We had a great time and I recommend this agency for any cultural trip in the area.

I did the Yugo tour, where you get picked up in the iconic car made in the former Yugoslavia. You are taught how to drive it, they are a little temperamental, and then off you go for the day, following the directions of your guide. It was a unique way to see the city and perfect to get a feel for outer Belgrade and to have a great chat with a local :) Loved it!
