THIS IS NOT THE FULL BROCHURE

We invite you to call Sarah or Gwen at 1-800-762-4216 to request the full brochure. The brochure will include Important Traveler Information (and answers to most questions) and a Reservation Form. We can send the brochure through the Postal Service or as a PDF attachment. If you would like to receive a PDF, probably the best way to keep the message from going into a SPAM filter is to send a message to sarah@serioustraveler.com. If you are already on our mailing list, no need to complete the entire brochure request form.

Led by our guide and friend, Dr. Yuri Boyanin

Dear World Traveler,

Our excellent guide, Dr. Yuri Boyanin has updated our Wild Europe tour to be even wilder! This exiting itinerary begins in Belgrade, Serbia and concludes in Skopje, Macedonia.

This tour will open many windows: to how people live and dream, how they’ve organized their life, how they relate to their neighbors from across the border, across the village or even from across their garden fence. History, culture and nature are vital to understanding this region, and both feature strongly in this tour.

We focus on areas off-the-beaten-trail: beautiful Korce in Albania; Krushevo in Macedonia; Novi Pazar in Serbia. We take back roads. We use little known border crossings where only local people cross.

Every stop is a memorable experience. Even the restroom breaks.

The accommodations we use are superb: the Townhouse 27, Solun and Plaza hotels are world-class. The Montana Palace is a bit bizarre, but memorable. Vrbak hotel is a socialist-era dinosaur you will not forget; Tito is still alive in that place. Gracenica, Argjiro and Life Gallery are charming little hotels/guesthouses with tons of character.

There’s too much to mention here from the exquisite architecture, captivating frescoes and impressive monuments to the seaside views, river gorges and rolling hills. You’ll have to come and experience it with our excellent guide, Yur! He’s traveled to 116 countries on this planet and is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Explorers Club, New York.

This is a guaranteed departure, and we’ll waive the single supplement with six participants! However, we need to receive full payment by July 30.



All This Included:

  • Accommodation in carefully selected hotels in Belgrade, Novi Pazar, Gracanica, Tirana, Gjirokaster, Korce, Krushevo and Skopje
  • Meals according to program: 12 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 7 dinners
  • Transportation with an air-conditioned minibus, with all border and toll taxes and parking fees
  • Extraordinary English speaking guide throughout the tour
  • Local tour guides in Belgrade, Tirana, Korce and Skopje
  • Tickets for all museums and sights according to the itinerary
  • Ferry ride on Lake Koman
  • A welcome pack including maps, brochures, gifts, etc.
  • Flight bag, luggage strap and document holder are our gifts to you

Call today to reserve your space and let us show you the wild side of the Balkans.
