Have the best Balkan holiday: the advantages of escorted tours

Traveling to Balkans might not be on your travel bucket list, but we urge you to change your mind and visit the region. The distinguished cultural, natural, ethnic, historical, religious, social and political diversity of the Balkans makes it an unforgettable travel experience.

The Balkan Peninsula consists of ten-and-a-half countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, the Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, and the European part of Turkey. These countries are each imbued with their own distinct culture. This is not just a mixture of former Yugoslav countries and their neighbors—each of these countries is a thriving hub.

While visiting you can enjoy and experience cobblestoned streets, fairy-tale forests, wine regions, medieval towns, sandy beaches, ancient ruins, cosmopolitan capitals, old bazaars, almost definitely haunted castles, and over a thousand islands. Rocky mountains and terracotta towns plunge spectacularly into the Adriatic Sea along the coastlines, whilst inland, ominous mountain peaks are made for hiking and biking. Urban landscapes are dotted with ancient architecture on a grand scale, featuring winding Ottoman streets, Austro-Hungarian villas and the occasional communist concrete block.

For the traveler who wishes to see it all, this is the perfect vacation to explore the Balkans. However, for a travel novice one of the biggest difficulties for Balkan travel is finding reliable information on timetables, costs, and points of departure. Information online is hard to come by and even then, can’t be trusted. This all can be daunting and stressful. But there is a simple option for all those who like to travel in style and comfort, and at the same time see the highlights of the Balkan. Want to see The Balkans during one two-week swoop? Well, Balkan escorted tours will enable you to see all the main attractions and landscapes all within one fortnight.

The best places to visit in the Balkans depends on your travel interests. Croatia has a breathtaking coastline and more than a thousand islands in the Adriatic. Bosnia, on the other hand, has only a few kilometers of shore but makes up for the lack of space with mountains, rivers, and canyons. There’s a rich history here too with Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Yugoslavian influences as well as one or two Kingdoms. On a broader Balkan trip, consider Serbia, Montenegro, and Slovenia. Albania is worth visiting too. Favorites include Macedonia’s Skopje and Lake Ohrid, Montenegro’s Bay of Kotor, Serbia’s Nis and, of course, Belgrade, Bosnia’s Sarajevo and Mostar, and Croatia’s Dubrovnik.
