        Go with an open mind, look and listen to the differing viewpoints about the recent past and enjoy the different cultures and wonderful scenery.

        Great variety of locations from coasts to mountains. Some really good tour guides that gave you a good understanding of the history of the Balkans. Although the tour was designed to give you a taste of the countries it gave you enough insight to... Show more

        Great trip. The tour guide does need to have more local knowledge as this was a frustration at times. However, she was organised and made a great effort to get to know the group. As a consequence, the group gelled really well.

        Breakfast in some of the hotels was poor. If the accommodation could be improved, this would be a much improved tour. However, we had a great time with a lovely group and a fabulous tour leader.

        I probably say it after every Explore trip but this was one of the best ones (26 trips and counting)
