Fun and exciting local guides, small groups ( 10-20 ) of fellow explorers.
Unique and off the beaten path travel experiences. We specialize in the countryside and those place unknown to mobs of tour groups.
Over 25 years of satisfied customers, taking people to unknown places, we spend our time with the locals.
We are doing a private family tour in Sept. 2019. We are thinking about what sort of tours to offer in 2020 ? You can have a custom designed tour for your family or friends with 15+ people. ( we are doing more and more of these ) We do not do this for smaller groups due to the added expenses with a smaller group of people on the tour. Everyone of our tours is unique and one of a kind, unlike any other tours to Central Europe.
We can do any sort of private tour, but not with a group of less then 12 people. Small groups get to be expensive, with a bus/ van, driver, guide, entertainment, etc.
