Interesting and beautiful tour
, Dec 2021
It was very interesting experience to travel along the Danube river by minivan. Our guide was Alexander - polite and attentive to everybody. We so Golubac Castle and archeological site Lepenski vir and had a dinner at the very hospitable place Kapetan Mishin Breg on a high bank of the river Danube. The food was delicious and the place itself was very beautiful. Thanks to the tour organizers
Alternate trip offered
, Sep 2021
Our boat ride was cancelled because the fortress was closed. We were offered an alternate drive trip. Less expensive. Francesco was a great guide, but the trip was not what we planned.
Fortess closed
, Sep 2021
I had a great expectations on this tour and for some inexplicapable reason, the main atraction, the fortess, was closed. Even the guide for surprised and tried his best to make up the disappointment of the whole group.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear guest, we are very sorry for your bad experience. We are operating this tour for a couple of years now, and this is the first time that the fortress was closed on a working day ( except for Mondays and holidays). We were not informed that it will be closed. But of course, we accept the responsibility, it's our duty to know something like that. So, please contact us directly, we will be happy to offer another, complimentary tour, if you are still in Belgrade, or a refund for the one you took. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
Interesting tour along the Danube
, Aug 2021
The attractions and the beautiful spot for lunch were wonderful. It was an informative tour at a relaxed pace. There were some issues with communications regarding pick-up but were sorted out. Victor Tours communicated via WhatsApp when they said they would email details regarding pick-up so we were worried as we did. It hear from them the night before.

A great trip with great people
, Aug 2021
Fantastic and fun trip with our guide Alexander and 5 lovely people, that I will definitely remember. A very high level of organization, intellectually enriching and great human interaction. Definitely made me want to come back to Serbia to explore this lovely country further!
Recommend for a day trip to explore outside of Belgrade
, Aug 2021
A great day trip to explore eastern Serbia. Well organized. Jovan, the tour guide, is simply amazing, he's very knowledgeable and personable.
, Jul 2021
Too long a drive for too few things. The castle is beautiful but the iron gorge is just waste of money. Although the guide was really good.
Amazing tour
, May 2021

The guide made the tour personalized and unforgettable. I highly recommend this day trip. Even though it was raining, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
A must see!
, Nov 2020
This tour is an absolute must! The fortress was really breathtaking! My guide, Michael, was very nice and extremely knowledgeable. He explained the history behind the fortress and answered all questions that I had. I highly recommend this tour to all travelers!
Beautiful day tour
, Oct 2020
The tour was very well organized, the guide was very knowledgeable about that area of the country. The lunch place was a highlight of the trip, it is on a beautiful hill and the food was excellent.
Best part of our trip!
, Aug 2020
This was the best part of our trip to Serbia, the guides were fantastic and friendly. Don't miss out on this one!
Great service and tour
, Nov 2019
We were picked up from the hotel promptly and as soon as we were in the car the tour guide started to give a history lesson. Very knowledgeable throughout the whole tour. Highly recommend the lunch!!
Awesome guide & Tour
, Jul 2019
Thank you so much for this nice tour! We were just a few people so it really feels like an family trip. The guide (Jelica) explained everything very well and we could asked everything else about serbian life, although this wouldn't have been part of our tour.
Great trip
, Jul 2019
Had an excellent time visiting eastern Serbia Out guide Jelica gave us loads of interesting facts about the area and was great company The lunch location at Drugi O Nama ( hope that’s right) was superb and we’d give it 10 out of 10!!!! Highly recommended Thanks Paul & Tina
Beautiful scenery and Historical significance
, Jun 2019
This tour covered a lot of ground: Golubac fortress, Lepenski Vir, Kapetan Misin Breg, and Viminacium. Communication about the tour was timely and convenient. The guide, Jelica, was knowledgeable and friendly. I would have happily spent more time at each location, but I understand that visiting all four in one day as well as the drive from and back to Belgrade makes it a very long day. The fortress is impressive, the archaelogical sites are very interesting, and the lunch alone was worth every dinara! A word of caution: there are a lot of stairs at Golubac and they are a little steep--be prepared and wear comfortable shoes.
