    The Balkan trail tour was fantastically planned and gave some really great insight into both ancient and modern history. Wes was an excellent guide with a great sense of humour and everyone on the tour had a lot of fun!

    "Alright guys" let me tell you about Poppy. She is such a lovely approachable person who always has a story to tell. The knowledge she has on where you are is shared with excitement and passion, not just reeled off information you could read in any guide book, she wants you to expand your knowledge. I personally really appreciated the time and effort she put in at meal times recommending food so you could really appreciate the culture while eating something tasty. I've had a few tour guides from various companies and so far Poppy has been my favourite :)

    Poppy is such a kind, caring and fun person to be around. She guided us around the Balkans and her knowledge is outstanding. Her fact sharing is interesting and engaging and after the tour you really do find yourself in other European locations saying 'I wish Poppy was here with us!' My wife and I want to schedule our next Euro tour around her as a guide!

    Adam is the very definition of a perfect tour guide, he’s fun, energetic, and extremely knowledgeable in the history and culture of all the tour cities. Most people who’ve done several BusAbout tours state that he’s the best. He brings the trip to a whole new level, and puts a strong effort into making it the best possible experience for everyone.
 You leave with a lifetime of memories.

      What is the itinerary of this tour?

      DAY 1
      This morning drive to Delphi where we have an amazing professional guide take us around the incredible site and museum of Delphi (Included in tour price). The sanctuary of Delphi, where the oracle of Apollo spoke, was the religious centre of the ancient Greek world.

      You're probably starting to get excited by this point, because the destination tonight is not only the birthplace of Alexander the Great, it's also famous for some of the best food and night life that Greece has to offer.

      DAY 2
      Today we set off towards the charming town of Ohrid, set on a lake with beautiful monasteries scattered along the shore line. Spend the day exploring the Old Town before heading out in the evening to enjoy Macedonian hospitality and its affordable nightlife.

      DAY 3
      Today we have a short 3-hour morning drive to Skopje

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Chris10th October 2017
      Tour Radar offered many choices all at one easy to use site. I found a trip that met my specific needs for both travel time to tandem a cruise already booked and with the itinerary I was looking for. The tour company was unknown to me so I called TourRadar and spoke with a rep about the tour company, specifically reputation, what was included and what to expect. My questions were addressed, I felt comfortable with the info given and booked the tour ! Thank you
