Balkans Tour Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 1,545 customer reviews
An amazing trip and service
5 - Excellent
  • Artemise
“Nicu Apostol and Lulian Aruxandei arranged a four-days trip around Transylvania for me and I can only praise their efficiency and professionalism. Visiting Transylvania's castles and medieval cities is something I wanted to do since a long time, but my vacation days were limited, so travelling solo by train, for example, wouldn't have allowed me to see so much in a few days. My guide was Marcel and I was blown away by his knowledge of history, culture and infinite fun facts, not only about the main tour destinations but also about places we were driving through. We also had to deal with the weather and winter-schedule limitations, but if we couldn't make it somewhere, I was proposed an alternative, which was at least as nice as what was initially planned. This way I visited places I would'nt have seen otherwise and had the opportunity to exchange with local people. In summary this is a great tour company if you want to visit Romania, you can fully rely on their team to organize the tour of your dreams.”
Fantastic highlight tour of Turkey

  • Valerie Kilfoil
“A great overview of eight Balkan countries with the perfect balance of organized activities and free time. Our guide Anton was the best - organized, calm and had a great sense of humor. I highly recommend. This was my first tour with this local travel operator and I will definitely be booking more tours with them.”

Balkans — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

The term Balkan means “mountains” in Turkish and there is no doubt why as the region is carved with beautiful sprawling mountains. This vast region of eastern Europe encompasses Albania, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova, Turkey and parts of Greece and is a backpacker’s paradise. From wine cellars, to medieval towns, islands and sandy beaches, castles and cobblestone streets, and hundreds of street markets, the Balkans region is full of history and architecture ready to be explored.

Tour Highlights

  • Tour through Bulgaria and explore the old-world charm of Sofia and marvel at the famous gold dome of the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.
  • At the center of the Balkan peninsula in Macedonia is Skopje, an ancient city on the Vardar river that’s crossed by a beautiful stone bridge. You’ll find the memorial house of Mother Teresa, fortresses, monasteries, and vibrant bazaars built during the Ottoman empire. A trip to Macedonia will certainly take you through a culturally and historically rich country. 
  • Staying one day in Dubrovnik in the south of Croatia is an experience you’ll never forget. This walled city is full of art, cobblestone streets, and a displays a magnificent beach. You can also travel over to the capital, Zagreb, which is a costal city and a wonderful cultural hub. While it has become more popular to go on a tour to Croatia, the country is still relatively cheap compared with other mediterranean countries such as Spain, France and Italy. 
  • Don’t forget to tour through Bosnia, Albania, Montenegro and Serbia as well in between as each has their own unique style and beauty.

Travel Tips

  • Bus and train stations in the Balkan region often has outdated times of departure and prices. If this happens, just ask someone at the station for the time and price of departures. While most of the areas you will travel through, they will speak English, if they don’t speak, just write down the location and time you’re looking to travel on a piece of paper and they will understand and correct it for you.
  • In terms of safety, the Balkans is a very safe region as they are no longer at war right now. While there are still some ethnic tensions that remain, you’re not likely to encounter any difficulties. As in all countries, keep a close eye on your belongings and stay towards well maintained/lighted areas.
  • When you’re looking to decide what time of year to go, it’s best to travel during spring or fall since the summer time is way too hot and crowded with people. This means from March to June and September to October are the best timeframes.
