“The trip was well planned and we saw the most amazing nature in Montenegro and Bosnia-i-Herzegovina. We had a night in Pluzine near lake piva where the accomodation could have been better. The guide and driver/mechanic were a great team and both of them did an excellent job”

“This tour, Taste of Tasmania (Original), covered a lot of Tasmania in 6 days, which is where I felt it was rushed. We arrived in Launceston late afternoon, and left early next morning. I would have liked to spend a day exploring the area. Other than that it was amazing, a good walk/hike almost every day, so be aware if your not fit before you start this trip , you will be by the time you reach spectacular Freycinet National Park.
all in all a great tour.”
