I really enjoyed the visit as Resava cave. It offers spectacular views of stalactites and stalagmites - man of them looking like sculptures, for example a mother with a baby. a throne, a gallery of curtains and so on. Moreover, the history of the century-long figzt against the Ottomans was well-documented in teh two monasteries we visited.
It is a pity that taking pictures is allowed only from the outside. However, cars and booklets with pictures of the inside of the churches are readily available, as well as a multitude of objects produced by the nuns, such as shirts, shawls, handkerchiefs, but also locally produced jam, perfumes, honey and so on.

I LOVED this tour. I needed a tour to fill an empty day, so chose this one without particularly high expectations—it ended up being my favorite tour in Serbia. The monasteries were amazingly beautiful and, although I generally like historical sites much more than natural wonders, I thought the cave was especially cool and interesting. The tour culminated in an absolutely lovely and traditional lunch in a restaurant built into a rock. Last, but certainly not least, my tour guide, Mihajlo, was fantastic. He makes his tours come alive—he has a wealth of knowledge about the sites and all things Serbia, is friendly and professional, and is altogether enjoyable to spend the day with. I very highly recommend this tour and Mihajlo and Victor Tours!

I really enjoyed this day out with Victor Tours. The monasteries are incredibly beautiful, and the photos do not do them justice at all. A bit of a drive in the car to get there, but you do get to see quite a bit of the Serbian countryside. Just bring sufficient cash for lunch, which was delicious!

I had booked with this company for airport return trip, belgrade big tour, eastern serbia monasteries tour and nova sad- for a 4 night stay in belgrade.

All tours were amazing and full day tours, however you get to enjoy this country in very diverse ways. I was blessed to have my guide as Nemaja (Stefan) and driver Pavle. Pavle was an awesome driver, highly educated and well engaged with the audience.

Stefan, where do i start, i had initially requested for Alexsander, however had been blessed with Stefan for all my three tours. Different people on each tour, however it never exceeded to more than 6, so rather personal and you established great bonds.

Stefan is passionate about his country, and you see that, highly engaged, very kind hearted and makes you feel as though you saw everything but something was left and develops this desire to return to see more.

On one of the tours, we had children and he managed that very well. As with many tours, especially when you have small groups, everyone has a different challenging perspective/ expectations and personalities, and he created a spark amongst the guests and really wheeled them into a union form!

His very soft, has alot of historical knowledge, so you learn the facts. Further, his passion is strong and sense of connection is his asset. If i ever return to Belgrade, his my first choice! Highly encourage you to leverage this company and request for Stefan, and you may feel like i am, that i am leaving, however something wants me to return.

Perhaps you will see the beauty of such a nation and the passion of locals who are so rich in culture, religion and history.

Dear Mr. Hasan, thank you so much for this review. Our hearts are full when we see that somebody enjoyed so much on our tours and that we made their stay in Serbia more interesting. We hope to see you again, until then, all the best.

Hi all,
I did this trip 3 weeks ago. I only had a small idea what to expect (old monastries and a cave) but the day brought me so much more!

I was picked up by the mini-fan close to my hotel in Zemun (they made the drive all the way out of Belgrade-centre) to join one other tourist from the USA, our guide Stefan and most friendly driver Ratomir.
Already on the two hour drive to the south, we got so much information! Stefan told us all about the history of Serbia and there was plenty of room for extra questions, chatting, culture exchange, learning languages. So much more than I expected and I was still just sitting in a van...

First stop was the Ravanica monastry, build by a Prince who is buried there. The stories where followed by the highly decorated walls of the eastern-orthodox church. It was a short stop, just enough to start the feeling of a very special day.

Next stop was the limestone cave which we could visit just by ourselves. The chalk formations in every room and even in the corridors were amazing! Outside it was all hills, forest, green, serenity, totally being away from the city. We past some old mines, old bridges, hay fields, and not many traffic.
We had an authentic lunch close to a waterfall, more time to chat and learn each other's opinions about worldly topics. The busdriver of 76 years had joined us for his own unique view about life, completely in Serbian. Luckily Stefan could translate everything to English ;)

Last stop; without a doubt the highlight of my 6day stay in Serbia: Manasija monastry. Completely hidden in the forests is this early 15th century church, surrounded by the high and thick walls of a war-castle! Surreal! The nuns still living there have the best space, a beautiful painted church, but also the ruins of the old monastry and all the walls. You could climb and walk the parts that are renovated, to get even more sight of the impressive buildings.

To spent this day in such good company made the whole experience 10 times more valuable then it already was. As a solo-traveler this is such a welcoming change.

So if you spent at least 3 days in Belgrade, make sure at one day you travel south to see the monastries and the splendor of green-Serbia!

Enjoy your travels!

It was a Private Tour - booked via GetYoutGuide, but fulfilled by Victor Tours.The guide, Aleksandar, was extremely good: he was very knowledgeable but seemed readily to adapt his information and discussion to what we found most interesting. He spoke English very well indeed - fluent with only a minimal accent, such that he was very easy to understand. The vehicle was a new or fairly new, clean Skoda saloon car.
The tour included some significant driving distances (with up to 2h between sites) and went through areas that otherwise would have been difficult (one suspects impossible) to get to by public transport.

The monasteries were very well set in tranquil locations (eg a wooded valley) and, at least when we went, there was almost no one else there. Manasija monastery was extremely impressive, being set within a completely preserved and very substantial medieval castle! Both monasteries contained ancient frescoes and were architecturally very different from (betraying their Byzantine origins) the churches and chapels of NW Europe.

The caves were also very quiet - the two of us and Aleksandar were the only ones present withing the quite extensive (and well presented eg appropriate lighting) 2 level cave system.It would be worth mentioning though that the cave was a little on the cool side and the floor surface, especially on the stairs, sometimes a bit slippery. Suitable footwear and a jacket (plus, although the guide had one anyway, a torch for completeness) would be important considerations. The caves themselves were intriguing and contained lots of interestingly shaped deposits, including some that looked distinctly coral-like.

We ate (quite late ~3pm - after prior discussion and our explicit agreement) at a local restaurant en route back to Belgrade. It was a restaurant that was clearly for locals (we were the only tourists). The decor, food and service were extremely good - and the prices extremely low. My wife had the baked lamb whilst i had cevapi. Neither could be faulted - but unfortunately, I did not make a note of the restaurant name!

We got back at around 5.15pm,having been collected from the hotel punctually at 9am.

in short, a professional efficient and friendly guide. One gets to see several attractions and drive through varied scenery and some towns & villages - some of it quite reminiscent of the southern part of mid-Wales. The logistical side of things worked out very well - no delays or inefficiencies.

Aleksandar was a great guide, who replies to emails very promptly and picked us up very punctually.
The ride through the countryside was smooth and he told us many interesting facts about the Serbian history and everyday life.
He managed to make history come to life, but also gave us time to roam free and take pictures.
We really enjoyed the trip and are looking forward to returning to Serbia and explore some more.

It's 36+ degrees C outside. What to do? Stumble around Belgrade while the tarmac melts? No! Go for a trip in an air conditioned van.

The day started with a 2 hour drive to the East of Serbia. That might sound a long time but the journey flew by due to our driver/guide Aleksander. He was full of information about the history of Belgrade and Serbia. He was also a very pleasant and personable guy, a pleasure to spend the day with.

Both monasteries (we'd actually call them nunneries in the UK) were great examples of the architecture and religious art of the time. Aleksander gave a good account of the rulers who built them and how they related to sociopolitical events of the time with ramifications that have lasted until the present day.

However, the star of the show (if you're a bit obsessed with caves) was the Resava Cave. It may not be the biggest in the world but the 800m or so of publicly accessible cave has a good range of features including many that resemble other objects (turkey's leg anyone?). Another bonus is that caves have a constant temperature - no sweltering heat down there :)

Lunch is well worth the few extra dinar. My wife had trout and I had some melt in the mouth veal. Even the bread and salad were delicious. Post lunch one can relax at a nearby waterfall. Fabulous.

All in all, a top day out.

An excellent private tour organised by Aleksandar Jovanovic. The best professional service ever offered by any other company. Aleksandar is very curtious, professional and a good command of British English language. We would recommend to every British tourist who would like to know more about an original experience of a Serbian medival and Serbian Orthodox church histories to book the same tour with Victor tours.
Odlican privatan izlet koji je bio organiziran preko Aleksandra Jovanovica. Najbolja strucna sluzba prije ponudjena od bilo koje druge kompanije. Aleksandar je vrlo prijatan, strucan te posjeduje vrlo dobro znanje engleskog jezika. Preporucujemo svakom Britanskom turisti koji zeli vise saznati o srednjovjekovnoj te Srpskoj pravoslavnoj crkvenoj povijesti mora obvezno unajmiti isti izlet sa Victor tours.

We took this trip on August 6, 2018 and enjoyed it tremendously -- monasteries, Resava cave, even the restaurant they chose for lunch was wonderful and more than reasonably priced, Special thanks to our guide, Aleksandar, who spoke excellent English, gave us a very insightful narration throughout the trip and accommodated for our a bit complicated pickup arrangements. Highly recommended
