Overview

Book
Welcome to the Balkans - where East meets West and new merges almost seamlessly with old. Over the centuries people have travelled to this region of Eastern Europe for its fertile soil, natural resources and healing waters. This enchanting land, which has remained virtually untouched by tourism, boasts rich tradition, vibrant culture and mouth-watering cuisine. With historical attractions in Budapest, nightlife in Belgrade, Sarajevo's beautiful old town, Montenegro's Durmitor National Park and lively Dubrovnik, this adventure tour is delightfully different.

Highlights

    • Cross the Chain Bridge in Budapest and take the funicular up to Buda Castle for beautiful views over Pest
    • Sip the famous Croatian Traminac Premium wine at a wine tasting at a 15th century family-run vineyard in quaint Ilok
    • Wander through Belgrade’s Bohemian quarter and grand 19th-century boulevards, before launching yourself into its animated nightlife
    • Witness Mostar's famous bridge divers hurl themselves from the stones of a bridge that has spanned the river here for centuries
    • Sarajevo is one of the most scenically located cities in Europe. See the sights on a guided walking tour and learn about its recent history as a city under siege

I have enjoyed my trips with you. You choose interesting activities and leave enough time to undertake other activities of particular interest. The leaders have been enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The variety of travel modes and accommodation add to the interest of the trips. The Balkans was a revelation from both a historical and current perspective.

A well organised trip with an excellent itinerary. Rich in recent history, incredible sights, and culture. Montenegro, in particular, was a hidden gem.

I'm sad the new trip notes for this trip have increased the group size. The transportation and the local accommodation will need to be altered which is a great shame. To me Intrepid was about small groups and local experiences. Not medium sized groups and less 'local' accommodation and restaurants which will be needed to accommodate the larger group size. Also cutting the past traveller discount removes customer loyalty.

This was our first trip with you and we enjoyed the experience of travelling with a small group, staying in well-located accommodation that enabled us to explore our destination on foot, and the benefit of local guides to give us an insight into the culture and history of their area.

Bring a water bottle to refill every where you go, the water is drinkable in all the Balkan countries. Have a good calculator to figure out 5 different currencies. Research the exchange before you go.

An amazingly experience visiting areas that are often off the 'tourist' radar embracing stunning locations enveloped in history. Could not believe the beauty of Belgrade, Kotor & Sarajevo. Fantastic locals relaying their experience with passion. Loved this trip!!!
