What Do I Need to Bring?
Holiday of a lifetime – can’t recommend funky tours enough!
I can’t put into words how much I enjoyed our trip with Funky Tours and I can’t recommend them enough!
My husband and I did a two-week four country trip through Croatia/Bosnia and Hercegovina/Montenegro and Albania and had a ball.
Anand and Senad were THE best guide and driver and it felt like taking a trip with friends. They couldn’t do enough for us and were knowledgable and engaging giving a personal perspective about a multi-layered part of the world. Ema, Edna and Nadirah in the office couldn’t be more helpful, checking in to see if we were OK or wanted anything changing.
Where necessary local guides were used who were all engaging, informative and critically had lived through history and events they were speaking about.
We tweaked the itinerary as we went along to make sure it suited us perfectly and the flexibility and amount of things to see and do meant we felt Funky Tours gave us a holiday of a lifetime!
