    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

    We were not particularly impressed by this day tried. We spent a lot of time in the car trying to cross the Bulgarian-Serbian border. The city of f Nis is nothing special. Untortunately the arch ological site of Mediana is closed until further noted in so we only saw a tent from

    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.

    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!

    Thank you, Jesper! Yes, unfortunately the border queues in July and August are always like this - many cars from Germany/Austria going to Turkey back and forth... Not much we can do unfortunately :-)))
