Good walk in Belgrade
, Sep 2019
It is an interesting walk in the city of Belgrade. Our guide gave us a very good introduction of the city of Belgrade. In addition, he also told us a lot about the European history especially those related to the Balkan states, the former Kingdom of Serba, Croates, and Slovenia. He also explained about the changes in the years from kingdom of Yugoslavia, to federal republic of Yugoslavia, to socialist republic of Yugoslavia and finally to the different independent countries
Another great tour and great value from Viator. Viktor did a superb job! He was knowledgeable, patient, and engaging. Since I was the only tour participant and am learning Serbian, he did the tour in Serbian and English! Wow, impressive.
This was such a fantastic tour. Special thanks for Bojana for taking me all over town even in the rain. We had a great day walking around Belgrade and Bojana taught me so much about Serbian history. We even stopped for a Turkish coffee along the way. She also gave me many other recommendations for my stay in Belgrade. The fortress was definitely my favorite part of the tour - there are just so many cool things to see there. Thank you again, Bojana!
My friends and I went to visit Belgrade for a weekend
and we did have too much time, so we decided to book the tour.
The tour was really nice because we were able to see
the most important things in Belgrade just in a few hours.
After the tour, the tour guide I forgot her name :
gave us some useful tips about interesting bars and restaurants in Belgrade.
I can highly recommend the tour because
you will be able to hear interesting stories about Belgrade
and you will not lose time trying to find historic places on your own.
The tour guide was just amazing, I would recommend it to anyone. The tourist guide Nina was super competent and gave us special insights to towns history as well as modern Belgrade. She could answer all of our questions, which were quite a few. Among all the impressive buildings, we loved the walk through the Kalemegdan park. We could really feel the life of locals here, would recommend if anyone wants an overview of Belgrade before exploring on their own! Good value for money.
My guide was Dragona, a Serbian historian. She knew EVERY detail about the buildings and told me anecdotes about the wars and government changes that impacted the country over the centuries. She took extra care with me and I am very grateful to have had this experience of Belgrade.
