Wonderful experience in Guca. Hosted in a small and cozy room with a local family. Nothing fancy but really authentic. The organization was perfect. Thanks a lot!
We had great 3 days in Guča. We stayed with a local family that was extremely welcoming and hospitable. The three of us got a proper room and a lovely local breakfast, including homemade raspberry juice and other specialities. As the village is rather small, we had only a 5 minute walk to the festival! The sun of our hosts had even won the golden trumpet in 2022! So the whole trip was a great experience and the organisation if it was perfect. I can just recommend it.
It‘s always an experience when you have the opportunity to stay with locals, especially at such a great festival like the one in Guca. The communication with Natasa and Dejan was trustful from the beginning and we weren’t disappointed - everything worked perfectly fine (after calling Dejan he appeared at the roundabout 2min later!) and staying at our hosts’s place felt like staying at our grandma‘s :).
Natasa and Dejan did a great job finding us a room just outside the centre of Guča (relatively quiet at night but at the same time close to the festival venues). The booking process was smooth, effective and inspired trust. The reception on location was welcoming and friendly. Thank you both for enabling us to spend three unforgettable days at the Guča festival - Madness in Serbia indeed!
Natasa and Dejan organized our stay in the best possible way. We stayed at a very local house with other people and the host made us feel really at home (sharing stories sitting and sipping beers at the porch, offering best rakia, allowing us to use washing machine, dry clothes, and much more). Location was great to reach the festival (just 5 minutes walk). Dejan even provided his own router to give us internet connection.
I managed to get to Guca festival after a last moment chance. Contacted Dejan also last moment and all was sorted fast. Best relationship with Dejan and Natasha from the beginning. They are helpful and knowledgeable about serbian history and culture and passionate about the serbian brass bands. It is a true Serbian festival and you get a cosy Serbian accommodation with a family, as if you were visiting friends who live by the festival. Could it be any better?
Everything was perfect. We had a wonderful room and caring hosts, welcoming us with a glass of selfmade rakija, couldnt have been better! Thanks 🙂
I wanted to write and thank you and the family who hosted me so much for such a wonderful experience at Guca! I came to Serbia and the festival on a whim, not knowing what to expect, and what a found was an amazing experience and kind and hospitable people! Seriously, I had the best time, and in large part thanks to the worry free accommodation and clean comfy bed (even if I hardly slept). Guca was such a memorable and fun experience! I really plan to come back again next year! And I'll bring others too! Thank you!!!! Sarayu
I had a Great time in Guča 2019. It is really awesome that you helps with bus and accomandation and make it so easy to join this festival. I talked much to The others on The bus and really got new friends directly and despite i traveled alone I catched up and hung around with new friends all Three days. I also think it was very good to live in locals house in Guča and have a Nice talk to the hosts and get experience of The serbian small village life (instead of a hotel) I also think that the tour to train and village on saturday was really good. I really hope i can Come back again next year. The festival is so fun and unique. Jimmy Ekstrand
The journey has been very beautiful! Every one has been very kind! Music has been beautiful, Guca welcomed tourists! There were concert in the stadium and in the Culture House, i liked a lot also all those band playing along the streets and restaurants ! I joined the bus to visit the old rail line at Sargan and the monasteries: we were warmly welcomed in very beautiful places amid luxuriant nature. I spent three days in Belgrade, i like it a lot, i loved to visit non central districts. An huge thank you to Natasha, Dejan and to the family which hosted me in Guca! Xвала ! I invite you also to present a Belgrade trip in your plans for the people leaving Guca for Belgrade after the festival. I like a lot discovering Stari Grad and Свети Nikola church at Zemun. Unfortunately this year i will not come to Guca, i hope next year to see spring time preselection before Guca final. I know i'll need to learn many more words in Serbian for next time! Kindest regards, Дoвиђeњa Gelao Gennaro
Hello Serbian Brass Bands! I am from an activist street-brass-band in Innsbruck, Austria: StreetNoiseOrchestra We play outside on the streets for the people. In June 2019 we are having a festival of similar street-brass-bands from France, Germany, Italy, and Austria. As lovers of Serbian brass-band tradition, we would love to invite a Serbian band to our festival also! Are you interested? Please send us a message firstname.lastname@example.org Tell your other brass band friends!
Dear people of Guča, we were a group of six friends who all joined your festival for the first time. It was amazing, the music, the joy and hospitality. We made a report with some pictures, maybe some other guests are interested to read and watch (the words are only in German, sorry for that!). https://www.gig-blog.net/2018/08/15/guca-festival-9-12-08-2018-guca-serbien/ All the best and see you!

Ringrazio di cuore Nataša e Predrag per l'impeccabile organizzazione del nostro soggiorno a Guča e per le interessanti escursioni proposte con le visita ai monasteri e per il simpatico viaggio con il trenino storico lungo il suggestivo percorso della "Šarganska osmica". E' stata davvero una bella vacanza che abbiamo trascorso in una atmosfera di festa continua, in posti davvero suggestivi e con persone davvero ospitali! Grazie ancora ed un caro saluto dall'Italia!
Perfekte Organisation, super nette familiäre und fürsorgliche Betreuung durch das Team und die Gastgeber. Hat alles bestens geklappt. Vielen Dank! Rolf
Oh Guča, what an experience! Truly one of the most authentic festivals I've ever been. People is lovely and music and atmosphere fantastic. Thanks to Dejan and Natasa to make it a real Balkan experience 😉
je tiens à vous remercier chaleureusement pour ce séjour. Tout a été parfaitement préparé du début à la fin que ce soit pour le transport ou l'hébergement. Nos hôtes étaient charmants et accueillants. Nous avons découvert un pays, des gens et des musiciens hors du communs. Étant nous-même musiciens, nous ne nous doutions pas que l'on pouvait jouer de la trompette de cette façon, c'est extraordinaire. Merci encore pour ces moments formidables que vous nous avez offert. ce sera un souvenir inaltérable!! ne changez rien, nous reviendrons.
1000 Thanxs to Dejan and Natasa for their help to bring my missing phone back to Austria. I forgot it in my room in Guca. Honestly and helpfully the took care for an organised a woman from vienna to bring it back to me. Guca Festival is so nice and Serbien people so honest and lovely. Wonder exist.
Massive thank you to Guca team who organised our trip. Our hosts were warm and hospitable, the house was beautiful, clean and comfortable, providing stunning views of the surrounding scenery. The included breakfast (and home made juice) was incredible. Our excursion tour guides who took us to Mokna Gora were excellent as well. We will be back!
Big thanks to all people who organised our shuttle and stay in Guča. Nataša and Dejan are friendly and helpfull during all stay. You can tell that during years they brought organisation of accomodation to perfection. With them your only concern is to have fun during the festival! Pozdrav
We were a team of 4 people and Dejan and Natasa supported us perfectly. We stayed with a lovely family with 2 kids and grandma in the middle of Guca. We were very well come and absolutely nice treated and integrated. Lots of interesting talks with our family. Natasa is very quick and responsive and helpful. Dejan is a walking encyclopedia about Music and Guca . They helped us to experience Guca in a very special beautiful way besides brass and party. Thanks very much Natasa & Dejan
