A Recent Review of this tour

A superb tour. Well-planned, matched our requirements exactly and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We were taken to beautiful places close to the Serbian-Bulgarian borders which we would never have known about or found ourselves. Company was excellent - our host was engaging, knowledgeable and fun. Snacks and meals provided were all great. Everything done was for our interest and enjoyment. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.
