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

Too many good experiences to pick just one

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

Good walking shoes and layers - the weather was warm/hot during the day but dropped significantly in the evening

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

Using local hotels and restaurants rather than chains meant more money going to local economy

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

Excellent- 4 stars. Lost one star due to the accomodation in Belgrade and Tirana

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

Dubrovnik.

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

The operator has policies in place to utilize exchange rates to elevate trip prices, adding two hundred dollars to my price by converting my euro price to dollars. Responsible Travel got the price difference refunded to us. I would be very careful booking anything with this operator, and if you do, go through Responsible Travel as they stick by their customers to ensure a decent outcome. After my experience with the operator's pricing practices I had decided that this, our first group tour ever, would be our last. We really enjoyed the tour itself however, and will do more small group tours but only through Responsible Travel.

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

I believe it did benefit local people as our tour guide intentional chose small vendors for our meals and day trips. Most of the time, this meant an exceptional experience, including some fantastic restaurants that we never would have found ourselves.

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

Responsible Travel: Five Stars The operator: One star for honest business practices, but four stars for the actual trip.

Amazing!!!
