“This trip was very well planned, routes were well thought out and beautiful. Our guides, Marcko and Zoran took great care of us. The bikes were great. The days were balanced with easier cycking days folkowing more chalenging ones. Marcko was very knowledgeable and informative. Some of the accommodation could have been a little nicer. We had a lovely group and it was a wonderful experience. Absolutely recommend it!”
