How it all started
Since 2004 our Dutch founder, Ralph, has been working in the Balkan region. First on projects to help young people starting their own business and later he moved into diplomacy. And as happens with those spending some time in this region, he fell deeply in love with the kindness of the people, the way of life, the beauty of the nature and the liveliness in the cities. Of all places he visited, Belgrade was the one that stole his heart and in 2011 he decided to totally change his career, quit his job, give away his suits and ties and move to Belgrade. He was motivated to help and inspire others and promote a healthier environment. This, in combination with his wish to have fun and share his love for Belgrade lead to the start of bike-tour company iBikeBelgrade.
Although Belgrade did not have many tourists back in 2011, the number of visitors grew and we have grown with it. We are the first bike-tour company in this not-so-bike-friendly city, but by taking extra good care of the safety of the guests we manage to have thousands of happy guests each year. Especially because we show you those places you don’t see on other tours, the more raw side, the socialist architecture and places most locals don’t even know.
What happened next
In 2013 we started organizing tours for guests of river-cruise ships that come to Belgrade via the Danube river. This turned out such a success with the guests and the cruise-ship companies that we started offering tours in other cities down the Danube, like Budapest and Vienna. Now you can even arrange your complete cycling-holiday with us if you want to go bike along the Danube and further. We are the only company where you can pick up a bike in Budapest and drop it off in Belgrade again!
Besides expanding to other countries the team and the guides keep developing new tours and services. The Yugotour in Belgrade is a great success-story, which started with the crazy idea to drive people around the city in an old Zastava car, produced in socialist Yugoslavia. Belgrade used to be the capital of this country that doesn’t exist anymore, which is such an intriguing story while nobody was talking about it or showing the traces of this era to visitors. What started with on old car now turned into a fleet of cars and tours with very happy guests every day!
Also, more and more companies, organizations and groups are reaching out to us to organize a special experience in Belgrade and Serbia. Because of our combination of international and local staff we understand your wishes, goals and definition of fun, but also the level of quality you expect and the concerns you might have. This distinguishes us from others in the region and makes our clients coming back to us each time. On our DMC & Group page you can find more information about the services we can provide to your company.
Where we are now
As we expanded to different countries with more and more tours and services we starting to become a collection of small companies and teams, instead of becoming one strong company. That is why from 2019 we decided to bring everything together under one name and website; a name that combines our serious and professional side and our wish to make you see, feel, experience…….note things differently. That is why we are Note! Note helps you explore destinations in a fun and different way and leave you with a new and exciting experience. We do that by organizing unique and original tours, activities and services provided by passionate, friendly, experienced and knowledgeable staff and guides.
