An excellent week of walking around the Peaks of the Balkans. The guide was excellent, and so was the organisation and route organised by Zbulo. Everything went smoothly, including all the airport transfers. A big thanks for a lovely holiday.

The organisation by Zbulo! was excellent. The mountains and valleys are really beautiful in Valbone and Theth. We had a 7 day hike, without any guide, but with a GPS and a roadbook delivered by Zbulo!.
