Really great day, did take only 30 mins for border, can take over 2 hours July/Aug.
Guide was very nice and knowledgeable, transport was in an eight seater minivan.
The drive through the gorge was stunning.
Couple of tips, you can exchange euros to local currency just after the border, toilets at the border you pay for and are squatting, if you can wait normal toilets in the city. For your free time most restaurants speak English, and best facilities are in the shopping mall.

Excellent tour even though it is a bit pricey, but I am the only person so it is worth it. The newly constructed road to Nis is breathtakingly beautiful in autumn!
