Tour Flow

1st Day – Meeting, Fruška Gora and Novi Sad

After #YourSerbiaHost meets you at the airport, bus/train station or wherever we agree to meet, you will continue straight to Vojvodina region and its sole mountain Fruška Gora. Here you’ll visit monastery Krušedol from the XVI century and then you’ll continue to the town of Sremski Karlovci. Next stop is Petrovaradin Fortress, where you’ll learn why it took 88 years for the complex to be completed. Lunch and gastronomy part of the day is planned in a small wine cellar where the wine maker is also a cook. He will serve his homemade food and match it with his fine wines.

After lunch it’ll take only 15 minutes to reach Hotel Centar**** where you’ll stay overnight. You have the rest of the day free to enjoy Novi Sad on your own. Tips and recommendations will be provided.

2nd Day – Topola Town, Oplenac Royal Mausoleum and Village Home Stay

On the second day we will continue the tour towards Šumadija to the town of Topola. Renewal of the modern Serbian state commenced here 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. From this point onward you are only enjoying Šumadija wine. Three wineries are on our list: King’s Winery, established in the 1930s by Serbian king, then prominent Serbian winery Aleksandrović and as a highlight of wine exploration, a young family owned winery. These young winemakers will serve lunch with their matching wines.

Rest of the day you’ll spend in the household House of Čolović. Warm hosts from the guesthouse will show you firsthand how local people live in Serbian villages nowadays.

3rd Day – Zlatibor Mountain

Third day will start with rich and tasty homemade breakfast which is a treat for all senses. After you say goodbye to your hosts we’ll drive towards West Serbia and iconic Zlatibor Mountain where you’ll enjoy pure nature. First stop is Gold Gondola, the longest panoramic gondola in the world. After the gondola ride, you’ll continue towards the rural area of the mountain. Next is Stopića Cave, then after the cave you’ll head to the village Sirogojno, where the ethnological open-air museum Old Village is settled. From Sirogojno we move on to Gostilje Waterfall where a 20m water dropdown creates a wonderful scene and cold water makes pleasant refreshment on hot summer days.

Lunch and finish of the day is again in a rural area at guesthouse Pećinar which is managed by the Pećinar family for six generations.

4th Day – Sargan Eight Train and Višegrad

If the voices of birds don’t wake you up, the smell of Zlatibor food will. After breakfast you’ll head to Mokra Gora town. Here you’ll experience the most attractive narrow track railway in this part of Europe, the famous Sargan Eight Train. After you get off the train, you’ll leave Serbia and cross to Bosnia to visit Višegrad. The town with a famous bridge over river Drina dating from the XVI century. You’ll hear a story about Yugoslavian writer Ivo Andrić who wrote the novel with the same name Bridge Over Drina and won the Nobel Prize in 1962. Here you’ll get on a boat and take a ride on Drina River, to see the town and the old bridge from the water. For lunch, you’ll try ćevapi Bosnian way, in a local tavern.

After lunch you’ll return to Mokra Gora and to Drvengrad-Mećavnik (Woodentown) ethnic village. The complex is the creation of our famous film director Emir Kusturica. Hotel Mećavnik**** is your accommodation for the night and you have the rest of the day for yourself.

5th Day – Monasteries Studenica and Žiča, Belgrade

This day is reserved for medieval monasteries of West Serbia. After leaving Mokra Gora we’ll take you over picturesque Golija Mountain until we reach monastery Studenica from the XII century. Studenica is considered for the most beautiful Serbian monastery (UNESCO list) overall. From Studenica you’ll get down to the valley of river Ibar, also known as The Valley of Kings, thanks to numerous endowments built by Serbian medieval rulers. Here we’ll stop for lunch in a special place, a local tavern run by the same family for 200 years. After lunch next stop is the monastery Žiča from the XIII century. Here you’ll learn about its unique purpose and about the reasons for its different appearance to other Serbian monasteries from the same period.

Finally you’ll reach Belgrade in the evening and Hotel City Savoy**** (two nights).

6th Day – 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 the 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.

Rest of the day you are free to explore Belgrade on your own. Tips and recommendations will be provided.

7th Day – Departure

On the last day of your seven day Serbia vacation package we’ll give you a transfer to the airport or bus/train station. Depending on your travel arrangement you can spend some time shopping (here is a useful link) or wandering Belgrade vibrant streets.

Me and my family spent memorable eight days in Serbia with Serbian private tours. This is more about an amazing and authentic experience with Serbian private tours than a review. Miljan (from Serbian private tours) is a synonym for prompt and detailed response. My first inquiry email was promptly responded by Miljan with all answers I needed about booking process, food, itinerary customization etc. Booking process was super smooth... There is so much more to write, talk and share about our visit to Serbia and experiences we had with Serbian private tours, but I think this is not the medium to write full stories. I highly recommend Serbian private tours, Miljan and Andrija. They love what they do and provide memorable and authentic experiences.

A Vacation to remember! It is rare that I opt for a guided tour as opposed to exploring it yourself; in my opinion, I consider it to be a better option to do it myself instead of someone showing me around, until this time though. I opted for Serbian tours for an 8-day getaway to Serbia and it was nothing short of perfect. When I reached out to Serbian Private tours ( Miljian ) he got our requirement to the T and planned an itinerary that suited my family. This was important because I was traveling with a 10-month-old on her first vacation. Andrija ( Andrew) our travel liaison was extremely friendly and so damn knowledgeable, that we got more than we bargained for. his historical titbits and facts gave us such an insight into the history of the place. He made sure our vacation was as enjoyable as it could possibly be, and ensured we take back a little bit of Serbia with us. Thank you for a memorable Vacay! Definitely recommend Serbian Private Tours, even if you intend to plan it yourself. The comment is taken from TripAdvisor review page connected to our service, to see the source follow this link.
