Handcrafted, Private Tours to Serbia


You want to do things your way. We get it. MIR has been planning custom, private tours from scratch for over three decades, and we understand just how important flexibility is in travel.

Traveling privately on a custom private tour affords a great deal of flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, to go at your own pace, and to travel when it’s right for you.

How does it work? We’ll connect you with one of our Private Tour Designers so that you can share your vision and expectations with us.

We’ll ask you questions to better learn about your interests: Want to peruse a Serbian family’s private collection of more than one-million rescued books going back seven generations? How about a tour of Belgrade’s labyrinth of tunnels, secret bunkers, dungeons, and caves beneath the Old Town?

We’ll share our extensive experience in the region – and our suggestions. And then we’ll dig into it and custom-craft a private tour itinerary for your review. Give us a call at 800-424-7289 to get started, or click here to be on your way.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Serbia. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Tour Designers to craft an itinerary uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Board a helicopter for a spectacular bird’s-eye view of steep-sided Uvac River Canyon with its 1,000-foot limestone cliffs – named one of the Seven Serbian Wonders of Nature.
  • Explore delightful UNESCO-listed Kovacica Village, world-renowned for its naive art and violin-making, visiting the home of a famous naive art painter and watching a violin maker at work in his studio.
  • Don an apron for a Serbian cooking class and meal with a professional cook, browsing a neighborhood market for fresh ingredients and spices, then creating a traditional Serbian dish – perhaps cevapcici (grilled meat with onions) or borek (flaky stuffed pastries).
  • Explore a family-run farm and cheese-making enterprise near Pirot, sampling the area’s renowned sheep’s milk cheeses including Pirotski Kackavalj, made using an age-old recipe and handcrafted methods.
