          Wonderful full day around Belgrade
          Our tour for 8 friends was amazing! We had Dragona as our guide. She Explained everything about what we were seeing in such a knowledgeable and friendly way. We all came away more informed and impressed. Thank you Dragona.

          Fantastic 2 days with Victor Tours! Absolutely worth it!!
          Our private tour company contracted Victor Tours for 2 different day tours in Serbia. We did the 3 fortresses and Winery tour and the cave and monasteries tour. We were so lucky to have Jovan as our guide! Both trips were incredible, and I'd recommend both. Jovan was an excellent driver and recommended amazing local restaurants for lunch. He provided excellent suggestions for local cuisine too! His knowledge and perspective of ancient history and modern history was informative and comprehensive. I would absolutely recommend Victoe Tours and Jovan!

          Excellent tour, well organised & great tour leader.
          The guide, Konstantin, was excellent. He was friendly & knowledgeable & told us a lot of information about Serbia & the people & culture. The car was comfortable & air-conditioned. He arrived on time & everthing was perfectly organised. It exceeded my expectations.

          This was a great place to visit, Constantine our tour guide was excellent, the only thing it was a missing information about how to prepare for the tour, like people should bring their own water or snacks since is a long tour, there is no stop for people to buy their own refreshments

          Explore beyond Belgrade with Victor Tours!
          Constantin was a really great tour guide and was open to any and all questions. He's super knowledgeable and made a lot of jokes which I really liked. The best part was the wine tasting in Sremski Karlovci. Unfortunately, I forgot the woman's name, but she was so sweet, and the wine was tasting. It puts Serbian wines on the map. Overall, I think it's enough time to see the sights, and get a feel for northern Serbia, just make sure to have breakfast before the wine tasting ;)

          Great and beautiful trip. Nice view, cool mix of historical and modern places. Good guide. The last village "Капитан Мишин Брег" is really cozy with great views on Danube and good food. Thanks

          Great value for money, fantastic way to spend a day in Serbia
          This trip was great, we did a lot of things during the day. My favourite part was wine tasting, I regret not bringing check in luggage because it's not possible to bring any bottles with you and the wine was absolutely amazing! Dragana has been a great guide, super knowledgeable and just a lovely lovely person. I would say this trip is a must-do when you're in Serbia

          Excelent!!!!
          It was a great experience. Uros, the guide, was very kind, he knows a lot about geography, history and he also explains very well. He is dedicated and also gave time to take pictures, and helped with the best spots. We had lunch at a very tradicional place, explained the different kind of foods and suggested what to eat. Highly recommended!!!

          Awesome tour of Beogrand, the white city!
          Our trip to Serbia and Beogrand was beyond expectations. Beautiful and diversified city with thousands of years of history. Restaurants and food delicious, too. Many interesting things to visit, museums, squares, churches, and fortress. Particularly, we would like to express our gratitude to our tour guide, Constantinos, for his kindness, knowledge, and the massive amount of information he shared with us. Indeed, he is a good asset for the company and for the country, too.

        Wonderful experience. Konstantin was a professional, knowledgeable, patient, kind and flexible tour guide. Nothing was too hard, and he took great care of us. Serbian landscape is stunning and definitely worth visiting. The tour was an exceptional value for money and I would highly recommend it. Will definitely be back for more tours.

        This trip was the highlight of my Serbian's stay. We spend an amazing day with Jovan in the mountains seeing many wonderful sights. The train ride on sargan eight was, to me, the best part of the day but everything was perfect. Our guide Jovan was extremely nice, pationate and soooo knowledgeable about Serbia. His driving trough extreme fog in the mountain was impressive! He also brought us to very local place to eat and I had the best meal of my trip there. Please note this is a long day (from around 8am to around 9pm) but so worth it!!

        Fantastic trip with very knowledgeable guide. The house on the river Drina was a lovely spot and it would have been nice to have spent longer here relaxing/having a drink but it is somewhere to return to and visit another time. The Sargan 8 Railway was great. Overall the tour picked some great highlights and the scenery on the journey and information from the guide was fantastic.

        An amazing tour that offers a train ride which gives mini flavor of Switzerland, Scotland, Germany and better landscapes in Serbia. From picturesque Drina to Mokra Gora and short train this tour is packed with beauty of Western Serbia including hills and mountains. Wooden Town feels like you have entered a village 300-400 years back ...

        Amazing day trip from Belgrade. Aleksandar was our guide and was truly exceptional. As a history buff, I love to ask questions on tours and he always had the answers. This tour is a great way to see the countryside of Serbia and get to tour some one of a kind locations. Aleksandar provided great recommendations and was a great source of knowledge. He provided exceptional unbiased history of the Balkan region.

        Victor tours was extremely accommodating and easy to communicate with them. Very fast email responses with solutions to any problems.

        When I return to Serbia I will definitely use Victor Tours!

        It took us 3 hours to reach but amazing
        However it is better to do railway FIRST before the wooden village. We had to catch the train at 1.30pm. So all stops to the Drina river n wooden village were toooo brief.NEED more time at the wooden village

        Thanks for a great day. I fell in love with Western Serbia

        An enjoyable 12hr trip.

        We were picked up from our hotel for a small extra fee (1200rsd) due to our hotel being over 5km away from Republic Square. The journey to the first stop, the Drina River House, was long. However, it was filled with stunning views of the western forested mountains. At one point, the mist hit us pretty hard and we couldn’t see a thing! But it did eventually clear. When we arrived at the house, it was interesting to see. This stop is more of a photo opportunity to be honest. You take some cool photos for the ‘Gram’ and move on.

        The second stop, the Sargan Railway, was my favourite. You go on board with your group (the tour guide stays behind) for a 2 hour train journey through the forested mountains. There are around 5 stops along the way, some of which sell drinks and have toilets etc. You generally have between 10-20 minutes at each one depending on whether it’s a viewpoint or a place to grab drinks etc, and the whistle blows to let you know when to get back on the train. There is a recording that switches between oriental music and historical information as you ride.

        The final stop, the wooden village, is very close to the railway and my least favourite. I found it a little boring and nothing too special (just being honest). There were great views but I’d already seen similar ones aboard the train. The history wasn’t that exciting too. However, I did get a cool photo next to a painting of Maradona on a wall!

        In terms of of guide, ours wasn’t as informative as other trips we had been on. She wasn’t overly chatty. She told us a little about the house and quite a lot about the wooden village. She didn’t tell us about the railway but I guess the recording on the train does that job already. Whilst in our minivan, she didn’t offer a history of Serbia like other tours we had been on and she wasn’t very personable.

        Our driver, who is also a Serbian politician, was very friendly and approachable. I loved chatting with him and he interacted brilliantly with the group. His English was amazing too.

        All things considered, it was a fun (and tiring!) day out!

        We had an incredible tour with Mihajlo, his knowledge is astounding. He was able to tell us so much fascinating history, and was also just such a pleasure to meet and had a great sense of humour! This tour company is fantastic and we will remember this trip for the rest of our lives. Thank you Mihajilo!
