Amazing experience
Jul 2021 • Solo
The trip was really made very comfortable for me. Alban helped me plan the entire itinerary and he is a superb point of contact to help you build your travel as per interest! Taulant the tour guide on the other hand was an amazing surprise. Super sweet, extremely patient and very friendly. It was a great time with Choose Balkans! Will definitely recommend them to everyone.
