Went in February. I'll go over the positives - in the winter there's not a lot of tourists, and the wait time at the border is not long. I am indeed a self loathing tourist. Our tour guide, Mikhail, was amazing. Super friendly, good driver, and really knew the history of his

Just the two of us on the trip - picked up from hotel by our driver/guide Alex. Very comfortable drive to Nis - no hold ups at the border although Alex said it can be a nightmare in summer with up to 3 or 4 hour waits each way. Visited the Tower of Skulls and then on to the city

Dear Isabelle, We thank you for the feedback, we certainly also suffer from the long waiting at the border in the summer busy months. We try to warn all customers, however this information is not always reaching our guests.

It was very much a historical tour. We had a good and chatty driver-cum-guide. Not used to the food in Serbia.

Responded 25 Jul 2019
Dear visitor, We thank you very much for your feedback. We are sorry that our historical tour did not quite meet your expectations. Usually cities offer mostly historical sights. Most of our customers have been very happy with Serbian grill, however if you do not fancy meat, food in Serbia is really not recommended. Thank you and many happy travels around the world!

This day tour was well organised and pleasantly hosted by our guide Ivan. It was a few hours travel each way from Sofia to Niš and the border crossing itself was a fair chunk of that. The first spot was skull tower, a cairn of skulls from the heroic resistance of a Serbian
