This tour is an excellent tour to a very complex region. The guides on the walking tours gave some very good information on the complex history and current situation. Highlights: the entire country of Montenegro - some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen, including the ride from the airport in Dubrovnik, to the starting hotel. Other highlights: staying overnight in the open air museum in Serbia, and visiting Bosnia, particulary Mostar. Our tour leader - Angelija (sp?) was very good.

One of my favorite Explore tours I have taken, and I have taken about 11 at least.

The trip itinerary was excellent--we saw both highlights and out-of-the-way places of four countries. The history and culture were fascinating and the scenery--both sea coast and mountains--spectacular. Our guides and drivers were great--patient and accommodating. Highlights for me included Kotor, the Outdoor Museum, the hike around Black Lake, and free time in Sarajevo where we were able to attend a concert. Kustendorf and the Sargon Eight railroad trip were fun, but not as significant as most of the other experiences.

Bexhill on Sea
The holiday as a whole was good value for money and showed the beauty and tragedy of the places we visited. Travel could have been more comfortable with one bus instead of two 9 seaters as it was a pretty tight fit and divided the group somewhat.

I should have been on a two week holiday to Iran but it was stopped by the Iranians just days before due to go and booked onto the Balkans tour at the last minute but am so glad that I did. It was a fabulous holiday and what a varied tour it was. It was excellent and this was enhanced by the knowledgeable and charming tour leader who with our two drivers made the holiday a success.

Very interesting and beautiful places. Steeped in history. Useful local Guides. The old museum we stayed in was wonderful, but I do not think that learning to knit their way added anything.

Very interesting and varied tour. Could be extended to full 2 weeks by visiting more places in Bosnia (e.g. Kravice Waterfall, Tuzla, Travnik). Every day was busy and interesting so no need to single any particular days out.

Tour leader was excellent at managing group. A printed list of ticket offers for museums etc. in Dubrovnik and Sarajevo and closing times of museums in latter as there on a Saturday when things closed early would have been useful, although was able to find these myself on city website the night before the free day. Also as people needed to carry their luggage up and down stairs a lot should have been advised to take rucksacks rather than big wheely bags as would have been easier for them (I always take a rucksack so no issue for me).

Titos nuclear bunker was an unexpected and welcome addition to the itinerary.

Lots to see and the journeys were not too long.

Plenty of ATM's ,money changers few and far between.

Highlights were Kotor, Dubrovnik and Mostar. Tour leader was amazing!
Bring euros as they are standard currency in Montenegro. You can either use euros or withdraw from an ATM if you want cash for the other countries (some places in Bosnia accept euros).
