From Bucharest to Budapest, take in the Best of the Balkans on this journey down the Danube.

From exciting cities like Belgrade and Bucharest, to charming small towns in Hungary and Bulgaria, you'll enjoy the very best the Balkans region has to offer. Discover the traditional Serbian way of life with a local family in the village of Jarak. Take a tour of their home and barn to meet the resident farm animals, then stroll through the family’s fruit orchards to learn about the brewing process of ‘slivovitz’ - a plum brandy that is the national drink of choice. Then cruise through the Iron Gates, a spectacular series of gorges that connects Serbia and Romania. In Puszta, enjoy a traditional horse show featuring Magyar cowboys and fine equestrian skills. All this and more awaits on this spectacular itinerary.
