I would've loved to walk up the towers, but they were shut due to the rain. but the option would've existed otherwise. I liked the pace of the tour - wasn't rushed, and we had enough time to walk around, explore. Lunch was absolutely the best! Jovan is a really great guide - knowledgeable and friendly.

The guide (Jovan) was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to make everyone on the tour feel welcome and comfortable. The restaurant chosen for this tour combines excellent selection of Serbian traditional dishes with a feel of home made food and amazing views of Danube gorge and Serbian country side. The tour is a nice combination of amazing historical sites and beautiful views, though I think it could be made even more memorable with addition of a couple of viewpoint stops to highlight the amazing views of the Djerdap gorge and Danube.

We have enjoyed our trip to Golubac Fortress, our guide Jovan was giving a lecture about the Serbian history on our way. From there to Lepenski Vir, The early settlement of ancient civilisation about 10000 years back, was verymuch intriguing. The lunch we had was delicious and was on having a lovely from hilltop view of Danube. Moreover we had an excellent climate, which made our trip a wonderful experience.

It was a lovely day - Golubac is a majestic fortress against the Danube river. I would've loved to walk up the towers, but they were shut due to the rain. but the option would've existed otherwise. I liked the pace of the tour - wasn't rushed, and we had enough time to walk around, explore. Lunch was absolutely the best! Jovan is a really great guide - knowledgeable and friendly.

We loved our Golubac and Danube tour. Guide Yelena and driver Nenat were super friendly and helpful. They even let us make time for a dip in the Danube. I highly recommend this tour. Thank you!

Nice escape from Belgrade with a great scenery along the river + the guide had profound knowledge about Serbian/Yugoslavs history and contemporary Serbian politics. Would definitely recommend
