Explore the Balkans with a private guide/driver during the Eid Al Adha holiday in August! Travel dates are 2-17 August 2019.

The tour covers 7 countries – 6 of them known as ex-Yugoslavia (Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Macedonia & Slovenia) and their neighbour, Albania. The region that went through turbulent times is waiting for you to be discovered!

You can learn more about the history and collapse of Yugoslavia, swim in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea and travel through some of the most dramatic scenery in Europe. Each nation offers a different culture, cuisine and tradition and are now emerging as independent countries, packed with places that for years were off limits to most travelers. Definitely a tour not to miss!
