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 gourmet 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 we are only enjoying Šumadija wine. Three wineries are on our list: Royal wine cellar, 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 we’ll spend in 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 our hosts we’ll drive towards West Serbia and iconic Zlatibor Mountain where you’ll enjoy pure nature. First stop is Stopića Cave, then after the cave we continue 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 we 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. When we finish with the train ride, we will cross to Bosnia to visit Višegrad with a famous bridge over river Drina dating from the XVI century. Yugoslavian writer Ivo Andrić who wrote the novel with the same name Bridge over Drina won the Nobel Prize in 1962. Here you’ll enjoy a boat ride on Drina River with a local captain and lunch on Drina bank.

After lunch we’ll return to Mokra gora and to Kustendorf 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 we leave 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) in general. 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, which had a unique purpose and that is why it looks different 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 St. Sava church. This the biggest Orthodox temple 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 we finish this part of exploration 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.

I recently completed a private 8-day tour throughout Serbia and I would count this trip amongst my all time favourite experiences travelling abroad. Even before I arrived in Belgrade, owner Miljan was ALWAYS immediately responsive to all my enquiries and he put together an itinerary that was perfectly tailored to all my preferences/interests. And I was incredibly fortunate to have Dejan as my personal guide/driver. From the moment he met me at the airport, I knew that I, a single female traveller, was in good/safe hands. Apart from his expert /careful driving, he treated me more like a new friend than a guide. He accommodated all of my requests and we simply HAD FUN. He is incredibly knowledgeable about Serbia and its history. Our conversations were always informative and interesting. Overall, I would very highly recommend this trip. There is so much diversity; beautiful mountains, vibrant culture, monasteries and vineyards (we visited some remarkable small wineries in beautiful settings). Another highlight was the food. We dined at wonderful local restaurants that were expertly selected. As well, given Dejan's translation, I was able to meet many locals who welcomed me warmly. So many wonderful memories of Serbia. I had absolutely NO complaints about this tour. And the owner even made a point of meeting me for lunch one day during the visit to ensure that everything was going well. Thank you Serbian Private Tours !! Date of experience: July 2022

I already want to go back. I did a multi-day (8 day) tour. When scheduling the tour, Miljan suggested adding two single day tours to the seven day tour to fit the length of my trip. These were the Monasteries Manasija and Ravanica as well as the Pearls of Hungarian Succession. Both were excellent additions and well worth doing. I don't regret a single moment of the entire experience. My tour guide was Andrija. He is very friendly and always professional. His knowledge of everything we did and saw is impressive. He taught me a great amount of Serbian history and culture. I would highly recommend him to anyone. The food was wonderful. I never had a bad meal the entire trip. Every day we ate something different and new. Every day I was stuffed. The restaurants we went to were local and authentic. None of it was part of a chain or tourist trap which I really appreciate. This company clearly has a good reputation in their community. We were warmly welcomed at almost every place we went to, with staff and owners speaking with us more like friends than customers. It really made a big difference. Overall, I would always recommend Miljan, Andrija and the rest of the Serbian Private Tours team for anyone, or group, going to Serbia. I've been on other trips, to other places of the world, and this was certainly the best. From how friendly and kind the Serbian people are to the great food, rich history and beautiful country. You will not be disappointed with booking a trip through this company.
