Why was the programme of guaranteed free sightseeing tours initiated?
The reason to initiate this programme is the fact that Novi Sad lacks the programmes that will offer guaranteed sightseeing tours to tourists. The programme is organised by the Tourist Organisation of the City of Novi Sad and it will be implemented according to the previously set schedule by a tourist guide Miloš Dunjić (Licence no. 1559 issued on May 12th, 2013).
Who are the guaranteed sightseeing tours designated to?
