In 2019 we will be providing two main tour types, ‘the Classic‘, an introductory 5-day (4-night) tour, and ‘the Connoisseur‘, a more in-depth 8-day (7-night) tour that provides a little more free time. Many of those booking the Connoisseur tours are those who previously enjoyed one of the Classic trips. The longer stay enables them to revisit a few favourites and add some new excursion destinations to their portfolio. For our veteran travelers that want to really soak up the atmosphere we are developing an 11-day (10-night) package scheduled for 2020.
For 2019 we introduce you to the Balkan nation of Montenegro, nestled in the mountains to the east of Dubrovnik it was one of the few countries to remain largely independent during the Ottoman period. It is bordered to the east, further along the Adriatic coast, by Albania, with Bosnia i Herzegovina, Serbia and Kosovo lying further inland. This small country has played a key role in European history, laying as it does at the crossroads of cultures and empires that have dominated our history for thousands of years. You can come with us and visit the vineyards and the olive groves that have been here since Roman times. You can walk among the ruins of imperial glory, including Venetian palaces, Napoleonic villas, ancient Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian fortresses. Montenegro has it all.
We are currently reviewing our plans for various other countries in the region and you should consider checking back regularly as we expand our portfolio of carefully chosen hotels, vineyards, restaurants, etc. For 2020 you will be able to experience our Dalmatian tours in Croatia (specifically the Pelješac Peninsula) and Montenegro, savour the delights of the more developed tourist trails in Bulgaria and Romania, or veer off-piste into the undiscovered beauty that is Albania and Macedonia.
We have destinations where none of your friends, family or work colleagues have ever been. You can be the trail-blazer! You can be the explorer!
