Tour Overview

Let’s bring to light and uncover Kosovo, Balkan’s youngest recognised country that went through a more turbulent history that one could comprehend. 

Two decades after the war, Kosovo is finally ready to open its door and lay out the red carpet of shockingly unexpected travel experiences to anyone willing to break the prejudices.

We have created 5D4N itinerary that will bring out the centuries old intrigues, pride and prejudices taking place on Balkan’s theater boards, complex political situations on the margins of the different perspectives and, most importantly, we will make sure to take you to some of the most beautiful places with breathtaking sceneries and completely intact nature. Places where even COVID did not put its atom on.

You will meet with locals, explore their country in depth, and try to understand how it feels living in a Truman show of 21st century.

Life-changing : )

Before I went on this tour I had such a different impression of the Balkan region–I thought I was going as a way to see history and to explore a part of the world that was interesting to me for personal reasons, but it was so much more than that.

These countries are extraordinarily beautiful (particularly, in my opinion, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Kosovo) and have such rich cultural experiences that have changed my life and enriched my understanding of cultural and religious history immeasurably.

There are many ways to see the Balkans; I looked at dozens of those ways and got dozens of quotes from group-tour companies. I chose Funky Tours, though, because they were so willing to customize the experience (for just me) and because they were so open and honest about the process and about giving me the greatest adventure for a reasonable price.

I was a little uncertain about not paying or even knowing all of the details further in advance, but let me assure anyone who might have a similar anxiety–they are real and will give you the adventure of a lifetime! I felt truly taken care of from the moment I got picked up until the moment I was dropped off.

I specifically spent a majority of my time with Emir, Stefan, and Tarik–they were all so kind and looked after me like I was a dear friend. They were always thinking ahead to make sure my needs, concerns, and interests were prioritized. No joke–I had to hold back tears when I left Stefan and Tarik on the last day because we had had so much fun (or at least I had) during the adventure and they were so thoughtful about taking care of me each day. Each guide I had (and there were many who accompanied me along the way) was an outstanding human with stories that will stay with me forever.

I would highly recommend Funky Tours to anyone traveling in this part of the world!

All that is funky–and then some.

As I researched possible tours of the Balkans, I wanted to avoid large groups travelling by coach. I also wanted an itinerary that would balance exploration of nature, culture, and history. Funky Tours looked especially promising.

After recently completing my tour, I am happy to say that Funky Tours far exceeded my high expectations.

Emir was our expert guide and driver, but he was also so much more. He shared his wide and deep knowledge of the region and its history, vivid anecdotes from personal experience, and a delightful sense of humor.

I admired his candor and thoughtfulness in addressing difficult, sometimes political questions, and marveled at his resourcefulness as a troubleshooter who nimbly addressed any and all issues throughout the trip.

Our itinerary was rich and fascinating, often taking us off the beaten track for immersion experiences that helped burst the tourist bubble. I should add that the tour struck a fine balance between comfort and physical activity. Hotel accommodations were excellent, the van was comfortable, and meals provided by the tour were tasty.

At the same time, I enjoyed our walking tours and light hiking in beautiful natural surroundings. Funky Tours also wisely combines structured days with plenty of free time for exploration. As much as I recommend Emir, I have no doubt that everyone at Funky Tours is a capable professional. Just keep in mind that whatever your associations with “funky”, mine are fun, informative, mind-expanding, and first rate.

Memorable experience

Funky tours provided an unforgettable experience with Ennis and Emir as our guides for this tour. We took a two-week tour with them which covered Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro and Kosovo.

We immersed in so much history and wonderful culinary experience. As I traveled with my 70+ year old aunt and mom and 3-year old son, many accommodations were considered within the planning of the tour which gave us a memorable experience.

All hotels planned were strategically located. I would highly recommend Funky Tours for your trip to this fairly unexplored region of the world.

Phenomenal 5 country private balkan tour with 3 day extension to Kosovo! Excellent guide, Excellent tour company!

My wife and I did the 5 country balkan tour with a 3 day extension to kosovo for 3 weeks in april, 2023.

It was AMAZING! We had the greatest tour guide, Emir, who we almost adopted as a second son! We did the private tour starting in slovenia and ending in Albania, which was about 3 weeks.

First of all, this was without question the best tour company we ever used, and we travel a lot and used many tour companies. Ema was extremely prompt in answering all our questions, and we had a few zoom calls with her as well. she was very patient and listened to our requests and was very flexible in what we wanted to change in the itinerary.

Our guide, Emir, was also fantastic! He was very flexible, he even went out of the way to show us some interesting places not on the itinerary, He was extremely knowledgeable about all the countries, especially Bosnia, since this is where he lives.

One of many highlights of the trip was learning about the Jewish history of the Balkans. Emir was able to show us the synagogue in Sarajevo and go to Friday night services and meet some members of the congregation.

HE went above and beyond to make this trip so memorable. He was also an excellent driver and the car was very comfortable. The hotels were all 4 star and were very clean and well located.

All the breakfasts were included, some better than others, but all in all great. Also, the price of the tour was very reasonable considering all that was included. We had a few local guides that were very knowledgeable and friendly.

We would definitely recommend this company if you want to have the trip of a lifetime!
