Aga was very helpful every step of the way. Thank you Aga!

Nice job by Affordable - as usual.

First at all would like to say that TRAFALGAR as travel agency - show high standards in putting the package " Balkan Delight" together. Some hotel we stayed were unforgettable. One of them had dinning room on the 15 floor with rotation panorama, just like we have in Seattle or SF. The tour director Evana was professional, knowable and available 24/7, always with genius smile and great patience. Always knew who in the group needs special attention. Because of her, we all came as a tourists, but ended as close friends .She design a method to mix us up, and we become as a big family. The driver was exceptionally experience. We all admired his skills on driving th narrow streets and roads. Besides, the bus was always clean and on time.

The tour was great. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and nice. Croatia was a historical and beautiful place to visit. Almost all of the optional tours were very good. And most of all, I enjoyed meeting and being with such lovely people.
