Know More about this tour

Your tour will start at your accommodation. Head toward Northern Serbian province of Vojvodina. Spend an hour of your ride enjoying the colorful landscapes of the Pannonian plain and hear stories about the turbulent history of this area. You then reach Fruka Gora, the only mountain in this region. The thick Lyndon forests served as a perfect hiding place for 16 medieval Orthodox monasteries that have nested within it.

Visit one of the monasteries and head towards Sremski Karlovci. A quiet, Baroque town where time has stopped, it will impress you with its small houses, Baroque churches, and palaces, gardens and fountains, but with its impressive history as well.

Then stop by the Chapel of Peace, where the peace treaty was signed, the main square, the Four Lions Fountain, The Karlovci Gymnasium (High School), Town Hall, Roman Catholic Church, Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas, Patriarchy, the Serbian Orthodox Theological Seminary.

Taste two of the most famous products: the famous Bermet wine and Kuglof cakes, a touch of German tradition brought to Karlovci by German settlers in the 18th century.

The next stop is the Petrovaradin Fortress. Walk through the fortress, passing through some of its gates, and see some of the interesting places on the top of it like City Museum, Old Military Barracks, and the Clock Tower and enjoy the view over the Danube and the city of Novi Sad.

Then take a tour of Museum of Vojvodina and Dunavski park, the largest green area in the city, the beautiful Neo-Romantic Serbian Orthodox Bishops Palace, and visit the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. George from the 18th century with its invaluable iconostasis painted by famous Serbian painter Paja Jovanovic.

Walk through the main street further on, enjoying the 18th and 19th-century architecture, as well as endless rows of cafes and restaurants, and reach Liberty Square, a central point in the city. Discover the Town Hall, Roman Catholic Cathedral, Finance Palace, and the Neo-Classical edifice of oldest city hotel Vojvodina. Then pass by the Serbian National Theater and reach the city Synagogue, beautiful Hungarian Secession-style building, one of the largest European synagogues to be preserved.

Take a break and enjoy some free time or a traditional Serbian lunch (at own expense), shopping and enjoying Novi Sad and, at the arranged time, get back into the vehicle and head back to Belgrade.

    This was a worthwhile visit. Novi Sad is very beautiful. The view from the fort is worth the visit. Nice old town, too. Saw some interesting local dance performance in town.

    Our guide Katarina was very nice, and knowledgeable. She also bought the kids a bit of a treat and we had a great day. There is however a ton of traffic entering or leaving the city.

    This tour was awesome. It was perfectly organized and executed. We were picked up on time, van was very comfortable and new. Our tour guide Marko is such a lovely and knowledge person. The driver drove safely and reached destination on time. This tour is just a perfect mix of culture and city. Everything that is described in the tour description was delivered as promised. There was enough time for everything, approx.. 2 hours in Novi Sad, but that’s really sufficient. Marko, thank you very much. You rock!

    Jelica was our guide and it was an amazing day, she made sure that the trip was not rushed and we got to spend enough time. Definitely ask her for lunch suggestions, she took us to an amazing restaurant. Do book this tour. The city and the sights are great and the towns are small but great architecture and history. A must see.

    The tour was about 7 hours long and was a great introduction to the Serbian countryside taking into account, monasteries, forts and two historic towns. The guide, Aleksander, was very informative in explaining the complex and detailed history of the country and always helpful.

    The best part of the tour, apart from locations as obvious, is Guide who is knowledgeable enough to explain about the history of the places. I highly recommend for Solo travelers to meet and explore the beauty of Serbia.

    Our guide Christina was punctual and our driver was great. Christina was a superb guide. She gave lots of background about each of the sites as well as of the country and all the changes that have occurred. I highly recommend her to anyone. The visit to the vineyard was very nice. The people there were great and the wines very nice, I even purchased some. A great tour.

    Cool and individual - we especially liked the visit to a little winery that gave us the chance to talk to the winemaking family about their life and business.
