What Our Guests Say About Us

Just back from an incredible week in Serbia with Undiscovered Balkans. I've been on a couple of trips with this company and they never fail in exceeding my expectations. I had no idea that such incredible places existed just a couple of hours away from the UK. Incredible scenery and opportunities for adventures - kayaking, canyoning, hiking - in water and on land. Undiscovered Balkans excel at taking you beyond the tourist trail and into the heart of the country and embed you into the culture. Mixing with the incredibly hospitable locals who welcomed us with open arms (lots of food and obligatory shots of rakia) into their homes! All dietary requirements are catered for - you definitely won't go hungry on this trip. Aleks and Philomena are wondeful guides who care passionately about providing exceptional service and sharing their love of this fascinating country with you. I confidently brought a friend who has never been on an activities holiday before knowing she'd be in safe hands stepping out of her comfort zone and trying new things - she loved it and we'll soon be planning our next trip!

Serbia 7 Day Multi Activity Holiday - An absolutely unforgettable trip! As a solo traveller, this trip offered me a backpacking experience with the safety net of guides and fellow travel buddies. And actually, had I travelled there completely solo, I wouldn't have seen half of the stuff I did on this trip. Aleks and Philomena were exceptional hosts and their passion for Serbia is infectious. They are extremely knowledgeable about Serbia, its people, culture, nature and geography and if it wasn't for them and their connections, I wouldn't have had the privilege of getting to know the lovely local people we visited and stayed with. The accommodation is basic in the mountains but always clean, comfortable and traditional (think kitsch wooden huts with log fires and undisturbed Alpine views for miles). One thing's for sure - you won't go hungry! Seriously, bring your appetite! Dietary requirements are not an issue and our hosts couldn't do enough to make sure I was equally as full to the brim (I'm lactose intolerant) as my fellow travellers. Thank-you so much Undiscovered Balkans, Aleks & Philomena, and all of the gorgeous locals who made this trip a magical experience!

Kayaking on the Drina, sitting above soaring Griffon Vultures on a secret natural viewing point and being humbled by Serbian hospitality was just a few of my highlights of this trip. The warmth of everyone we met combined with vast views, makes this trip in Serbia a true Balkan adventure.

Another fantastic holiday with Undiscovered Montenegro. This was my fourth trip and each time it has exceeded my expectations. Montenegro is beautiful and mostly unspoilt and the crew at Undiscovered Montenegro know all the best spots to visit and they work closely with local people to make this a really special experience. The location of Villa Mielia is perfect, with views across the valley and lake. It’s a beautifully restored building, with very comfortable rooms, all with great views. I went on the yoga and adventure holiday and loved the mix of both. Fiona the yoga instructor, worked with the needs of the group, providing lots of options for people to work at the level best suited for them. She also used her sessions to help us warm up and prep for an activity that day, or to stretch out from the day before. It was the perfect combination. The food was incredible with Elaine, our chef, providing local, nourishing and delicious food. I can’t recommend this holiday and this company enough. You’ll be in great hands with Tobi and Adel and the rest of the Undiscovered Montenegro team.
