    This tour is a quick presentation of Balkan cities/countries. I liked the tour and the 29 fellow travellers from 13 different countries. Special tanks to the tourleader Símon and the driver Cris.

    Our guides were great, warm and generous with their time and attention to detail. They are professionals and put up with a lot, honestly. Tip well. I'd suggest guides carry 50 cent euro pieces to facilitate bathroom use throughout the trip, just... Show more

    Great trip, amazing locations and awesome guides! Simon and Aykut were fantastic and a ton of fun. Very helpful, knowledgeable, and easy to chat with. While some of the bus rides were long (and made longer by the border crossings being slow), the visits... Show more

    Brilliant. We had two guides, Aykut and Simon who were both amazing. The stops were great. The hotels were good but varied. Some were amazing and some were average but that depended on the country we were staying in. I would highly recommend this tour

    For the price the tour was good. If I had paid more money for this trip I would have been disappointed.

    Although the tour is great and covers many countries which is good for getting stamps on the passport but the tour is little stretched and could be done away with little less traveling in bus. May be curtail a place or two.

    Bojan did an excellent job in keeping the group on schedule and was very accommodating to our needs. Our driver was on time and also played a nice selection of music so the long journey didn’t feel so tiring. Overall good tour. I wished we had an... Show more

    Too much time on the bus. Too ambitious a tour. Poor coordination to get a ride to and from the airport. Not enough time to explore destinations before, once again, getting on the bus to travel to the next destination.
