It was a fantastic tour. Our guide, Bojan, had such incredible knowledge of the sights and area. It was fun to walk around with the group and hear everything he had to say. Would highly recommend it to get a feel for the city/country. Interesting, educative and fun!

We were able to spend 3 instructive and exciting hours with Adesa. She told and showed various places and elements in the city in great detail and always with reference to the historical background.

Bojan is a very good local tour guide, with rich knowledge of history and beautiful stories that you won't find in any tourist guide. Very nice and interesting. Highly recommen!!!
