1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Driving through the Julian Alps, seeing people (and being inspired by them) living out the next stage of their lives setting up goat cheese farm, cultivating new business ideas in the local community catering to tourists, continuing family legacies in small agriculture farms, eating at small restaurants run by young creative chefs, staying at farmhouse/private lodging provided by locals (and not hotel chains), interacting with locals and hearing their stories.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Have some idea of what you want to see and interact actively with your guide to customize an itinerary that fits your budget (varying type of lodging, meals, sights to see) and time.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, by staying at lodging and eating at eateries run by locals and visiting and buying organic products of small farmers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good. Would definitely recommend Andrew Villone who was very prompt and responsive during the time of planning. Andrew is very knowledgeable and understood what we wanted and was able to help us finalize an itinerary which provided us with local and authentic experiences and at a good pace (we had originally planned for ambitious itinerary that would entail changing lodging everyday which he advised against). There were three of us in the group and he was tour manager, guide (in addition to local guides at the major cities), driver who was with us throughout the 12-day tour through Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Slovenia. Very much appreciated his personable service.

Holiday Reviews

You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
