What our travelers say about our Balkans tours
Why go on a guided tour of the Balkans?
Formerly one country known as Yugoslavia, the Balkans dissolved into 11 independent nations in the 1990s. Today, you'll find unique history, culture, and food to experience in every land.
The wine The Balkans are the fifth-largest producer of wine in the world, and this region is well known for bold, interesting reds. Be sure to visit the Zivanovic Wine Cellar in the wine region of Sremski Karlovci in Timisoara, Romania—their honey and wine are indescribably delicious.
The views Lakes, seas, landscapes, and incredible architecture put a tour of the Balkans on the top of many photographers’ to-do lists. Have you ever heard of Lake Ohrid? It’s on the border of Macedonia and Albania, and it has some of the most incredible views in Europe.
