Great experience!
This is one of my favorite Expat tours that I've taken. I believe our group had a great experience because of our tour leader Igor Maximus. Igor's knowledge about the countries and cities that we visited is outstanding. He is a very caring person ensuring that everyone is safe and enjoying the tour. We would love to have him as our tour leader and/or manager again in the future.

A taste of Eastern Europe
A great way to get a taste of Eastern Europe and decide which countries warrant further exploration and quality holiday time. The tour leader's (Igor) knowledge of the various countries was exceptional given he was from Serbia and the bus driver was rated the best in Europe.
