    The tour was changed on arrival, our starting hotel modified a few days before and some people weren’t even aware...the hotels advertised and even the ones given on our tour itinerary on day 1 changed as well...sometimes we wouldn’t even have time to stop and eat...they packed too much in a very short space and the hotels were of a lower...much lower rating than 3 and 4 stars...some hotels were too far from cities so sometimes we were literally stuck in the middle of nowhere. Our tour guide Tanyija was lovely and tried her best...

    The itinerary was terribly rushed. You don't really visit places so much as have pit stops in them. This tour is really only for if you want to get stamps in your passport. Multiple times we got into sites at past 8pm at night, which is a bit of a joke. The driver and guides often didn't know where to drive so this contributed to us being even more late. We had three guides, with the main one being Aykut who wasn't that knowledgeable about the area as he was actually a Turkish guide. He often argued with the other guide which he tried to play off as cute but was often annoying. The guide also would repeat things an excessive number of times, annoying the group and never allowing us to properly sleep on the bus. The bus leaked a lot when it rained and the toilet was out of order nearly the entire tour. The Balkans themselves were great though and very cheap! I would recommend going but probably not with this tour unless substantial changes are made.

    Good itinerary to see such a lot in such a short space of time. Aykut and Naya(tour leaders), Tania (guide) and Serdjan (driver) were brilliant, so patient and accommodating. Minor issues with some hotels (broken showers, tight squeeze etc), and limited time in some cities (Dubrovnik, Mostar). Broken air conditioning in the bus from Skopje to Greece made it unbearable, but Naya was really good at getting us a different bus.

    I really enjoyed this tour for a number of reasons, Firstly, the itinerary, there is so much to see and do in these countries, that our limited time didn't allow for. But our guides made the most of the time we had and managed both a formal tour and as much information as we could soak in, as well as letting us wander off on our own to explore. We managed to see a great deal of each country mentioned, excepting Albania, but 7 countries in 11 days I can understand. Our guides were fantastic, Aykut and Tanya were very knowledgeable and passionate about the countries. Aykut made everything clear and had lots of information to offer and both guides were easy to get along with and very approachable. Tanya was an absolute champ at getting things sorted for us in the local language. Overall Travel Talk seems to be a very accommodating company and any issues that went wrong, they tried very hard to work around them or offer solutions that most other companies wouldn't. They went out of their way to provide recommendations and make sure that everything was understood so nobody would get lost or left behind. I liked our accommodation for the most part, and didn't have any issues what so ever. Breakfast was quite a spread at many of the places we stayed. I even managed a gym workout on 4 of these days. While this itinerary is ever changing as they try and make reasonable adjustments and finally get it set to suit the time and destinations, they still managed to do a fantastic job.

  • Leslie3rd September 2018
    It is too bad there is no 6 or 8 star rating available. 5 isn't really good enough for TourRadar. This enterprise surpasses even the most stringent, high-bar criteria for excellence of customer service. These people are consistently, constantly, on top of your tour itinerary, where you are are in the process, your current status and your situation, they answer the phone on the 2nd or 3rd ring, I'M NOT KIDDING, nd when they pick up they already know who you are, what your tour and status is, and they instantly produce precise answers and solutions to your questions or problems in a matter of seconds. I don't know who the competition is for this outfit but my advice to them is, give up. Go find another line of business. You will never catch up with the platinum customer service these people provide.
