Lucas
Excellent vessel

Review for: Beauty Cruise Split - Split M/S Equator

The cruise ship 'Avangard' is an excellent vessel. An almost brand new vessel with spacious living areas, luxurious ensuite cabins which were regularly refreshed, gourmet meals. Highly competent captain and sailing crew. Dedicated, skilled and friendly waiting/bar staff, Very knowledgeable and accommodating tour leader. The Split (to Dubrovnik) to Split 7-day tour itinerary was brilliant. So much to see and do, with excellent shore excursions.

Grand Balkan Tour

Review for: Grand Balkan Tour

I recently did the Grand Balkan Tour. It was a 13-day trip, covering 6 countries, with breakfast and dinner included on all days. I must say it was worth the money! The quality of service, hotels and food was even better than the price we paid for the trip. Our wonderful tour guide, Lana, was simply amazing. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and paid personal attention to the needs of each and every tour member. The driver Vido is the best you can get on the trip, who knew which lane to take and which routes to avoid! The fantastic group of 19 people made the trip even more memorable. I have beautiful memories for life!
