Tour in the Balkans

All hotels are of a very good standard. Considering the good relationship between quality and price that the Balkans offer, we decided to aim for maximum comfort at the end of the day and rest only in excellent facilities.

We propose this itinerary because it has been personally tested several times. Don't underestimate the value of these experiences!

The hotels, restaurants and even the bars where we will stop have been selected after endless disappointments and as many attempts to find the right refreshment. Much of the travel organization serves precisely to avoid disappointments and inefficiencies.

This trip is organized and designed to be an opportunity for tourism, recreation and fun.

We will often stop to take photographs, selfies or to admire the landscape or buy a souvenir.

The Balkan Tour is available in two modes: "with guide" and in "self guided" mode.
