Mrs ANGELA CROWLEY

A lovely holiday but too much time spent travelling on the coach. Even the tour guide said this! Think the tour could have been replanned slightly. Optional trips were not particularly good and we didnt have enough time in Dubrovnik after doing an optional trip. Saw some lovely places and the other passengers on the trip were nice but found the tour more tiring than lots of others we have done!

Very interesting tour with lots of places to visit. The only downside was that there wasn't enough time to spend in each place because of distance between the cities. Very experienced polite tour guide & driver who were very helpful. Hotels good & adequate for overnight stays. Loved the hotel in Dubrovnik.

Excellent holiday but I am afraid the time span let it down. A much better holiday would have been enjoyed if the trip had been 2 to 3 days longer

Mr Rodney Hunt

Everything about the tour was generally very well done given what we are trying to achieve in the time allowed. We were looked after very well by our courier and driver. The only criticism is that a couple of the local guides just seemed to be going through the process delivering information at a pace that made it difficult to understand and keep up with the sites we were visiting. Overall, an excellent and most enjoyable holiday especially mixing with all the different nationalities on the tour which a feature of your holidays.

There was more walking involved than I expected, the trip to the caves was described as a mini train journey through the caves unfortunately the train ride was very short followed by long long walk with very steep inclines I only just managed to get through it.

Mr Hamish Hore

Good. Got to see a lot in a short time, however a lot of travelling with not too much time in each place. Perhaps one more whole day somehwere, like we had in Dubrovnik, would make it 5 stars
