Professional and individualised customer service

I worked with Ema from Funky Tours over the course of several weeks to plan a tailor-made family holiday to the Balkans.

We were uncertain as to the itinerary and Ema was very helpful with suggestions and very knowledgeable and flexible. His communication was timely, he answered my myriad of questions and I always felt he cared about making our trip special.

Due to changing circumstances we were unable to go ahead with the booking, but I would feel very comfortable booking with Funky Tours based on the professionalism and customer service I received beforehand.
