We went in end of June. The weather was really hot. It was very nice to see the Balkan countries. Our tour guide Bojan was very knowledgeable and explained everything really well. The bus driver Dejan was also really good and drove well on the winding roads. I’ll recommend this trip to whoever likes to explore Balkans. It is worth the money!!
