PlanetAccommodation & meals: Our small group size allows us to stay in family-run hotels and pensions that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited size. We also support small restaurants and cafes , serving locally sourced produce like mouth-watering rich stews and sauces, hearty soups and delicious desserts.
PeopleThe overnight train journey on this trip from Budapest to Belgrade is an excellent example of travelling like a local, with locals.
