    4.0 - Good

    Was a great overall experience but had some very long days. The border crossings varied from good to 6.5hrs at the Croatian/Montenegro border in the full sun - not the fault of tour company but made our tour less enjoyable. The air conditioning on bus failed to keep us cool in the summer heat at other times as well. Aykut our tour group leader tried hard and was very good as was Boyan our local guide from Serbia and our driver Victor. Bus had toilet on board which made our travels easier but different bus between Skopje and Sofia did not have functional toilet so had a pretty bad emergency pit stop. I would recommend it to see the Balkan Countries and would suit people who like a bit of night life or prefer quiet times and travelling as a single (or not wanting to eat alone) we were a quiet double and feel tour was a good mix. Definitely do the optional extras - Macedonia Folk Night, Lake Ohrid Cruise and Canyon Tour from Ohrid. Recommend taking euros in cash not just cards as sometimes not in a country very long and easier to change small amounts of euros.

    4.0 - Good

    Overall the tour was good; however it was way too short for amount of territory covered (4 or 5 days more) and hotels were not in great locations. Aykut was a great tour director/guide. We should have stopped more often for road side photo ops. "Whisperers" should be added for out of coach walking tours. Coach was excellent; great legroom and electrical outlets for charging. Border crossings were a gross waste of time; 8 wasted hours on day 4. Day 3 hotel should definitely be just north of Dubrovnik not in Trebinje. In-future please limit number of hotel changes between booking and tour especially first and last hotels.
