Tour Flow

1st Day – Meeting, Iron Gate Gorge, Golubac Fortress, Lepenski Vir, Bor Lake

You will meet #YourSerbiaHost at the airport/bus/train station or wherever we agree to meet. First stop is the famous Golubac Fortress. This medieval fortification was constructed at the point of the Danube where the river changes from its widest point on the entire stretch – 7km from side to side, to a narrow gorge entrance. You’ll walk the towers and ramparts of this intriguing edifice. Next stop is prehistorical settlement Lepenski Vir, dating from 8000 BC. It’s located in the heart of the Iron Gate Gorge. Here you’ll experience how life looked like on the bank of the Danube in prehistoric times. Lunch stop is on Captain Misa’s Hill. It is a household where a local family runs a small ethnic complex where you’ll try local food and learn something about their life in this part of Serbia.

After lunch you’ll see the most attractive parts in the gorge, Mali and Veliki Kazan Ravines. From viewpoints above Danube you’ll enjoy the most iconic views over the gorge, together with a sculpture of Dacian King Decebalus (Decibel) carved in a rock on the Romanian side.

First night is planned in Hotel Jezero**** on the shores of Bor Lake. Here you’ll have a chance to relax in the hotel’s pool after an exciting day or to enjoy a stroll around the area. The first day sounds exciting, isn’t it?

Hotel Option

Another option (with a supplement) for overnight stay in this region is a luxurious Hotel Ramonda**** which is located at the foot of the Rtanj Mountain.

2nd Day – Felix Romuliana, Ravanica and Manasija Monasteries, Veliki buk Waterfall

The second day of the trip starts right after breakfast. First stop on the itinerary is Felix Romuliana. This UNESCO site is a Roman palace from the IV century, built by Roman Emperor Galerius. From here we continue to the Monastery Ravanica. This XIV century monastery has great importance for Serbia’s national pride and identity. Midday stop for break and lunch is planned at the attractive waterfall Veliki buk, surrounded by intact nature (if you feel warm you can take a dip into cold mountain spring water). In a cozy small restaurant directly by the creek you’ll have local specialties for lunch. After a deserved break we’ll drive to Manasija Monastery from the XV century. Here you’ll learn why Serbian medieval rulers carried the title of Despot and who was Despot Stefan Lazarević. From Manasija you’ll continue to West Serbia and its Šumadija region.

Here, in the village Mala Vrbica you’ll have a chance to meet locals from the household House of Čolović. This rural guesthouse is a perfect representative of Serbian hospitality. Comfortable stay is combined with kind hosts and tasty local food.

3rd Day – Topola, Oplenac Mausoleum, Wineries, Belgrade

Third day will start with a rich and tasty homemade breakfast. After you say goodbye to our hosts, the trip continues through Šumadija to the nearby town of Topola. Renewal of the modern Serbian state started there in 1804. On the tip of Oplenac Hill you’ll visit the Royal mausoleum, a church where 27 members of the royal family are buried. It is decorated with mosaics: 40 million pieces in 15.000 shades of colour. From this point onward you are only enjoying Šumadija wine. First, you’ll stop by the King’s Winery, established in the 1930s by a Serbian king. After this one you’ll visit the most prominent Serbian winery Aleksandrović. As a grand finale of the day you’ll have a local lunch with wine tasting at a young family owned winery, whose young winemakers will be your host during the meal.

After lunch you are leaving Šumadija and you’ll head to Belgrade for the rest of the day. After check-in at the great Hotel City Savoy****, located in the city center close to all main attractions, you have free time for yourself.

4th Day – Belgrade fortress, Tito’s tomb, St. Sava Church, Zemun, Gardoš Hill

Last day of your Serbia tour package is reserved for Belgrade exploration. We’ll take you first to Belgrade Fortress, the most iconic Belgrade landmark. Then from the fortress we move to another part of the city, posh Dedinje. You’ll visit the House of Flowers, which is the eternal home of former Yugoslavian president Tito. #YourSerbiaHost will explain how Tito’s cult was nurtured during his life, but also long after he was gone. From the controversial Yugoslavian dictator’s tomb we’ll take you to a holy place, to St. Sava Church. The biggest Orthodox church in the Balkans is dedicated to a true saint who was born in the XII and who brought autonomy to the Serbian Orthodox Church in the XIII century.

When this part of exploration is finished we’ll take you to a restaurant in the neighborhood, where local food is prepared in a modern manner. After lunch we’ll switch to the other side of the river, to Zemun. This old part of the city was actually a separate town till 1934. Strolling along the Danube promenade or walking to the Gardoš Hill, with a drink in one of the local cafes will make you feel like a local.

This is where the four day Serbia tour package ends and where we say doviđenja (farewell) to each other. At the end of the tour you’ll be dropped off to the airport/train/bus station or wherever we agree.

What a terrific tour! We booked a tour to go to a non-tourist town about an hour out of Belgrade where our father was born. Our guide, Andrew, was knowledgeable, and had gone out of his way to research the area and all that was of interest to see. We took away so much from this tour - he covered all the basics and so much more! We went at our own pace and kept an interesting and informative conversation going throughout the tour. At the end we managed to even see highlights of Belgrade. We cannot recommend Andrew and Serbian Private tours enough.

Excellent tour, fantastic guide! Excellent experience from the very first inquiry sent, until the final goodbyes after 4 days of exploring the wonderful Serbian countryside: quick to respond, very cordial in meeting our needs, super easy to book through their site. The tour was exceptionally planned, tailored perfectly to our preferences: we combined a 2-day tour to south-east Serbia (based on their "Iron Gate gorge and highlights of East Serbia" tour) with a 2-day tour to the western part (a variation on their "Zlatibor and Sargan Eight Train"). Trying to pick the highlights I find myself laying out the entire itinerary as everything was interesting and well worth visiting... all the restaurants selected were authentic, with warm, welcoming staff, and of course the food was great ;) But even the greatest plans are not worth much without execution :D and in this case, our fantastic guide Andrija made sure we enjoy our tour to the maximum: sharing with us his vast knowledge in ancient and more recent history, explaining about the culture, customs, language... all the while taking superb care of us, making sure we're safe, comfortable, and enjoying everything this region has to offer. It was an absolute delight to spend these 4 days with Andrija, and get to know a little bit more about this wonderful area - with its beautiful views, fascinating archeological sites, charming people and food that's just too good (especially with a zip of rakija...).

Myself and my partner recently had the pleasure of spending three days on a tailor made tour with Miljan. The tour itself included the Iron Gates / Highlights of Eastern Serbia / Mokra Gora plus a venture into Bosnia. Miljan is great company - intelligent, witty, knowledgeable and engaging. It was very easy to spend so much time with him - like travelling with a friend. The tour itself was very thoughtfully constructed with many varied experiences. I have no hesitation in recommending Miljan & Serbian Private Tours. I can promise that you will get so much more out of your trip - not to mention the spotless car every morning.

Miljan is a great person, trustable. He took me and my friends to many interesting places, as Tara Park, Studenica monasteriuns, winers, restaurants. If I go to Serbia again, for sure will contract his services!
