AMENITIES EXCURSIONS

 

Dear Vladimir,

About Ovcar Kablar Gorge tour, I must confess I wish I had a much longer experience with you as a guide. I started to appreciate your work from the very moment we've met, you were able to adapt our common time to the quite narrow schedule we had that day. You were very professional in the way you have concentrated in the talk the geographical and the touristic aspects of Cacak region, being funny and understanding in the same time. The breathtaking view we had to Ovcar Kablar meanders was like a blessing of the Mountain's Spirit, as a gift for our patience while breathing the dense fog after reaching the belvedere.
Hope I'll return for longer time, explore more and steal from your knowledge.

Concerning Serbia travel article in NG Traveler Nederland, I just know I was told to deliver my large selection of pictures until December, so there is no rush at all.

Thank you a lot!

All the best,

Eindrücke der Exkursion zur -Sargan 8-

Mein Freund Fabian und ich waren eine Woche in Serbien um uns das Guca Festival anzusehen.

Dort hörten wir von Vlade und seiner Tour zur Sargan 8.

Wir hatten fantastisches Wetter und sind um die Mittagszeit aufgebrochen. Vlade ist ein richtig netter Kerl und hat viel über Serbien zu erzählen!

Als erstes ging es nach Mokra Gora zu einem Ort Namens „Küstendorf“

Ein Dorf rein aus Holz gebaut oben auf einem Berg. Dies hat ein Regisseur für ein Festival dorthin  gesetzt. Heute kann man dort in kleinen Hütten übernachten und die Aussicht und die Ruhe und die Atmosphäre Genießen.

Einen Hauseigenen Pool sowie einen Kindergarten gibt es dort ebenfalls.

Dann ging es weiter zur Bahnstation um die berüchtigte Sargan 8 zu befahren.

Wir waren und sind bis heute begeistert! Wir können nur jedem empfehlen diese Tour zu machen. Mit dem alten Zug diese alte Strecke durch die wunderschöne Landschaft Serbiens! Nostalgie und Natur pur.

Im gesamten hatten wir einen super tag mit

Vlade und können Ihn nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen!

Danke Vlade, hoffentlich bis bald.

Zdravo Vladimir,

nice to hear some news from you. thanks a lot for your pictures, I'm sending you some pictures from us.

It was a nice time in Serbia. A lot of things to see and certainly a lot of fun during the festival in Guca.

The excursions were very interesting and we have seen a lot of things. And it's always a better idea to visit one foreigner country with someone who could speak to us about the news places. Thanks to you and Godana, we have knew a lot of news things about your country. And certainly your guide, which have you written, will a good indication for our next travel to Serbia... maybe not in 2012, but certainly in maxiaml two years.

Thanks a lot and best regards from Switzerland!

Let me know when you're in The Netherlands! I'll fly to Sarajevo next week again for the film festival. Looking forward to enjoy the Balkans again.

Dear Vladimir,

Thank you too for the great trip you took us on. We enjoyed it very much, and found the sights - the monastery, the boat trip and the swimming pool - to be a perfect combination of experiences.

We got to talking about which fruit it was that Serbia is the biggest exporter of? You mentioned it when we were driving through the countryside.

We got home to Denmark alright - but here the weather sadly had switched to rain.

Thank you for sending the photos. We look forward to seeing them.

Hope you are well too.

Best wishes, 

Michael, Madeline & Eva

Dear Vladimir,

Thank you for the photos you sent and the great time we had together .

I did not have any knowledge about Serbia before , except for the names of the main cities- despite of that we are living in neighborhood countries.

I’m really enjoyed our trips and have got a good impression.

I think that Ovcar-Kablar Gorgo and Zlatibor and Sargan 8 are really great places and worst to visit them.

With kind regards,

Zsuzsa

 

Hi Vladimir, and many thanks for the photos. Your excursions were excellent and it was great to see more of the real Serbia with such a friendly and knowledgeable guide! I would definitely recommend them to anybody who visits Serbia.

And like I said - if you're ever in the UK...Cheers,

Dave
