I have been on several of your trips, but this one rates as one of the best. Anaid our guide was very knowledgeable and gave an unbiased account of the homelands war which was extremely interesting and made me want to learn more about the Balkans, so already looking in the brochure for next year.
The way Anaid our guide brought the history alive in conjunction with visiting the museums made me feel that I could understood what the people experienced.
He was extremely knowledgeable on the history of the countries. In addition he ensured everyone was okay and that he genuinely wanted us to enjoy our trip

This was a fantastic trip with lots of variety and a great introduction to a beautiful part of the world. It included a really good range of activities, including (gentle) hiking in the mountains, guided tours of historical towns, swimming by a waterfall, visiting Orthodox and Dervish monasteries (and wine tasting at one of them), boat trip in the bay of Kotor, visiting a traditional Bosnian village in the mountains and getting to grips with the 20th century history of Sarajevo. In short, something for everyone!
I enjoyed all parts of the trip. Some particular highlights were the trip to Lukomir, Bosnia's highest village - it took quite a long drive up a gravel road to get there (mention must go to our fantastic driver, who approached this, as well as the frequent hairpin bends up and down mountains throughout the trip, with calm expertise!) but was worth the drive. We started with a fairly easy hike to a mountain waterfall (I found the hike down easier than the hike back up, but that might be my fitness level!) and afterwards were were rewarded by a delicious homemade lunch provided for us by one of the village families. It was fantastic to do as it would not have been possible had I not been traveling with the Exodus group
I also found visiting Sarajevo very interesting, and we were able to get a good introduction to the recent history in the city. We visited the Sarajevo Tunnel museum and our group leader was happy to share his experiences of the 1990s siege. Sarajevo itself was a beautiful city with very diverse culture and history.
Our group leader, Alen, was fantastic. He was very easy-going and friendly, and provided us with lots of interesting information about the places we visited and the culture of the region. He was happy to answer our group's many questions, made sure we had good information about things to do during our free time, shared with us his personal experiences of the 1990s conflicts and was a wonderful ambassador for Bosnia and Sarajevo.
Those of us who spent a few days in Dubrovnik before or after the group trip were glad we had arranged this - the time in Dubrovnik is limited (arrival in the afternoon and group flight was the next lunchtime) so there was really just time for a late-afternoon visit to Dubrovnik Old Town and supper.
I also recommend taking walking boots - it does advise these in the trip information, but I wasn't sure it would be necessary for the walks we were doing. I was very glad to have mine in the end, as the ground on the walks was not necessarily easy underfoot, especially with some loose stones etc underfoot on the Lukomir walk.
I also advise good insect repellent if you are susceptible to bites - I did get bitten by mosquitoes on both occasions that I didn't wear any repellent.
Zip off shorts-trousers, or a long skirt for women would be handy for the monastery trips - something that could be stored in a backpack. They did tend to provide wrap-around skirts and headscarves to borrow if you needed them but some people might prefer to have their own.
I had a great time on this holiday, was lucky to be with a lovely group of fellow travelers (11 of us in total) and would recommend it.
Well rounded trip of Montenegro & Bosnia. Spectacular scenery & very interesting history.
