Accommodation very good apart from President Hotel Split which is totally sub-standard and should not be used by Trafalgar because it does not fit the criteria. Tour director knowledgeable but a bit too "full on." Driver first class. Would recommend this tour if President Hotel was replaced by more suitable ac..."

    With this trip, my expectations were not only met, they were exceeded in many instances. It was a memorable trip and the beauty of Croatia will stay with me for a very long time. I have been to 56 countries on five continents and so I speak from experience. Both Croatia and Bosnia have been through so much. The people there are to be commended for their courage and endurance. It was inspiring to see how warm and friendly the people are despite all the adversity they have been through. The dinner we attended hosted by a family in Sarajevo was an absolute highlight. There are not enough superlatives to describe the level of excellence that our Tour Director, Kassie Jones provided. Her attentiveness to details is remarkable. She anticipated needs even before we knew we had them. Everyday, she brought something new and delightful to the experience from fun games we played on the coach to tasty treats to "hidden treasures" .... I could go on and on! She is articulate and her knowledge of the countries we visited was deep and insightful. Her explanation of the Balkan War was especially helpful. Her genuine caring for us made us feel like her personal guests. and not just paying clients. She gave us many suggestions for things to do in our free time, places to have lunch, where to shop. etc. The local specialists she lined up were all excellent. The optional tours added immensely to the whole experience as well. Especially Montenegro - not to be missed. The hotels all provided very good value for the money with the exception of the hotel in Split which I understand will not be used in future. It wasn't that bad ..it just was a disappointment after the others. I highly recommend this trip. This was my first Costsaver trip and I like the concept.. I have been on five full Trafalgar Tours and would have no hesitation in going with Costsaver again. Especially if Kassie Jones is the Tour Director!

    This tour, more than lived up to our expectations. The places we visited, and the optional excursions were both enjoyable and educational. The family visit in Sarajevo was an uplifting experience. This was our 5th Trafalgar Tour. The tour directors on all our other tours were extremely good, but we do have to say, that Kassie was over all the most accomplished. Our Driver too was exceptional. For the most part he made time to have our cases in our rooms, before we returned. Needless to say, he was a most accomplished driver. A wonderful holiday! John and Ros Shepherd

    We had a wonderful trip with a fun loving group of people from many countries. After being on a number of similar trips, we can say without a question of a doubt that our tour director on this trip Kassie Jones was one of the best. She was extremely well organised, always pleasant, knowledgeable and ensured every one of us was taken care of. Our accommodation generally was of a good standard except in Split where it was well below par.

    It is an very enjoyable 12 days tour with Kassie as our tour director. The variation of visited location and activities is really make the whole trip always full with surprise and make me feel like keep seeing new thing. I always travel free and easy because I always think that travel in big group will have a lot of "delays" and "waiting"...I have to mention that Kassie is really good in managing the time and handling group members expectation.

    A wonderful trip. The countries were beautiful, the people lovely and I loved the history. It was especially good since we had such a wonderful tour guide, Kassie. She was attentive, very organized, made everyone feel comfortable and was always alert to anyone's needs. Also, our bus driver, Bozo, was an excellent driver and always very helpful. A great tour guide and bus driver always makes a trip more wonderful.
