Loved the sites and beautiful countries but did not like how extremely rushed we always were. The accommodations were average to poor at times, in less than desired locations. The bus driver Alex was wonderful though!! So nice and friendly and helpful. Our tour manager, Ric, however was not. Quite unpleasant at times and a bit rude to some people on tour. Not approachable at all. Was honestly scared to ask him anything. He seemed quite annoyed with any type of question. He appeared quite burnt out honestly and that he no longer liked his job. Think the tour would've been much more enjoyable with another tour manager.

I would highly recommend the Best of Balkans (Start Split) trip! It exceeded my expectations with beautiful sites, fun activities, history lessons, delicious fresh food, and wonderful locals. Plitvice Lakes will blow your mind and photos just don't do the place justice. Ric was an excellent tour manager and Alex was a legend coach driver and both made our trip fantastic! Our tour group was phenomenal and we can't wait to meet up again for mini-Contiki reunions! This is my third Contiki Tour and my husband's second tour. Thank you Contiki for another amazing trip!

I got to see the most beautiful places in such a short amount of time, most of which took me by complete surprise because I have to heard of them before. Close enough to each other that you didn't spend half of your time on the bus :) I would highly recommend Best of Balkans to anyone!

Overall I greatly enjoyed this tour. Both the tour guide and driver were knowledgable about the areas and helpful. This tour does move very fast at times and you have very limited down time and time to relax/ get ready for events. Doing this tour made me feel comfortable getting from place to place and getting through border crossings without stress. However, this is a never ending tour so people join at different points. This was kind of a bummer, I would have preferred to stay with the same group throughout the tour. Many of the travelers who got on in Budapest to go to Split were simply using it as a way to get to yacht week or sail Croatia and were a different group of travelers compared to those doing the whole Balkins tour.

The changes to some of the hotels - original hotels certainly had a higher "value" as compared to the replacement ones. Value here as in proximity to the main areas (e.g. Split & Budva).

Good although the downgrade from a 4 star to a 3 star in Montenegro made me feel a bit cheated out of my money

This trip was great! You got to visit some of the more touristy areas of the Balkans, as well as getting to some more undiscovered areas like Sarajevo and Belgrade. Plenty of add-ons as well as a good amount of free time, and the people on my trip were heaps of fun!

The balkans were way more beautiful then I expected. This tour gives you the perfect amount of time in every place. It would be difficult to travel this area and get through all the boarders if traveling alone so I’m definitely glad I choose to do this trip with contiki, it was worry/stress free.
