    Fantastic, awesome locations, great guide, well thought out tour. Maybe a little too much time on the bus, would be worth considering a way of reducing bus time but otherwise great.

    I forgot the guide's name. He was great. Lot of border crossings which is expected, but could have made better. Like crossing from Dubrovnik back to Bosnia, instead could have gone to Montenegro.
