From Belgrade: Danube River and Iron Gate Gorge Tour
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 10 hours
I booked a private tour but the agency, for some reasons unknown to me, requested that I go with the group and offered me another tour to Novi Sad to compensate for the inconvenience (the guide missed me though I spent an hour waiting for him on the agreed spot. they refunded me a portion of the price) but I would not let this incident affect my admiration first tour. the work of nature hugs the work of men in the scenic view that accompanied us through the road. our main guide jelica who was native to the very soul of the place dancing to its heartbeat. She is professional yet that girlish spontaneity of her adds flavor to her work. I would not have any other person tell me the story of the captive Byzantine Princess and her pigeons and how the pigeons tried to save a martyr of love cast on a forlorn rock by her lustful captor. the museum experience was also fantastic as we were able to discover the origins of human civilization in the Balkan region and probably eastern Europe.
It was exactly as shown on the itinerary. Very organised and Jelica our guide for the day was very informative and pleasant and made us feel comfortable from the moment she greeted us at the hotel, lunch location was exceptional and tour was great value for money. Highly recommend it.
The tour has stunning scenery and is definitely worth checking out if you are in Belgrade. The tour guide does an excellent job explaining the history behind all of the sites and you get to appreciate just how much history there is in the region. Highly recommend!
The authenticity and scenic beauty of Serbian culture were admirable. The guide was so warmhearted and informative, it made the whole trip a completely enjoyable experience. And, the authentic serbian lunch was the best part!
Alexander was a GREAT guide. Very knowledgeable and transferred a lot of information in an interesting way. Also enjoyed the lunch. My only complaint, you don’t actually go to the iron gate (the narrowest part of the river).
