      Guest Reviews and Ratings

      • Guest Service Rating from 98 Reviews

      • Trip:

        Service:

        The Tour guide was exceptional. The tour started and ended on time every time. Being vegetarians, the tour guide took special care to ensure that we were served reasonably well given the choices available in the Balkans.

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : Tour guide & bus driver were greatProduct : Could have done without Bosnia & Herzegovina...not impressed with Sarajevo at all. A tour of just Croatia would have been better - spend more time at Plitvice Lakes. Hotel in Split way too far out of town.

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : The staff was excellent, I have been recommending you to everyone!Product : A great mix of seaside and inland, traditional and new, not too rushed but we did a lot

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : Apart from one the Hotels were very poor barely 2 star, dirty, damaged, smelly and one was not even close to the advertised destinationProduct : Going straight to tours was poor, too long in some locations while barely giving us time in others. No advise to purchase local

      • Trip:

        Service:

        Service rating : The tour, pace, tour director, especially the driver and local guides were fabulous. The hotel accommodation and locations were below average. When my family and I travel, I like to book at least 4 star hotels or boutique hotels in local areas but 15 minutes walking distance
