    5.0 - Excellent

    A truly wonderful trip - 7 countries of the former Yugoslavia in 15 days, with rains and a really good variety of cities, countryside, and sights thrown in. Overall, a very good/fun group.

  • Andrew3rd January 2019
    It's not the first time I've used this site for 3 very good reasons. It's easier to navigate than most of the individual companies websites, it's a one stop shop (all the tours from the different companies are in one place) and to top it off its often cheaper than going direct
