Voice of Travelers to Serbia
3-Day trip in Serbia
The organization that I’ve been working with arranged a 3-day tour in Belgrade last year. Everything from the choice of the airline - Air France - to the itinerary was amazing. We flew from CDG Airport on a first class ticket and arrived at Belgrade slightly past midnight. The air crew was helpful, and the seats were comfy. Our tour guide and driver had a pleasant personality and were so informative. The only slight difficulty I faced was booking my train ticket online.
Best tour in beautiful Serbia! Affordable air ticket, bus ticket, and train ticket
Hello? I’m calling from an amazing tour of the Kingdom of Serbia. I must say, everything about this country is just awesome. A train ticket or bus ticket is way cheaper than a train ticket and bus ticket in London and moving from point A to B in Serbia is fast and cheap. We stayed in 3 different luxurious hotels during the 7-day tour in Serbia. All the hotels were spacious and had lots of space and friendly staff.
Friendly people in a gem country
My workmates and I toured Serbia for a whole week. We used a train ticket from Munich to Belgrade, Serbia through the Austrian Alps, Slovenia, and Bosnia. The journey was quite long but full of excitement. From Belgrade, we booked a ticket for another train to Nis. We booked our train ticket online. A train ticket in Serbia is amazingly cheap. Nis has lots of exciting places to visit and things to do.
