Common Q&A

Do your tours include international airfare?

Travelers arrive from all over the world to begin our tours and it is not possible to include international airfare in our prices. We would be happy to help you arrange flights and we can even do it for you upon request.

Can you book airplane tickets for us?

Yes – we can. For assistance, please contact us via mail info@balkanadventure.me

Can you help arrange my travel visas?

Requirements for travel visas vary widely depending on your country of origin and your destination. If you do require a visa, you should make arrangements with a travel agent or visa processing company.

Are airport transfers inluded?

Most of our adventures do not include airport transfers. If you would prefer a pre-arranged transfer, these are usually available at an additional cost – please contact us for more information.

What type of ground transportation is used on your tours?

Tour-specific information on transportation can be found on each trip agenda, but in most cases, we use private transportation. Depending on the size of your group, we can arrange a van or bus.

Is Montengero a safe place to travel, particularly for solo passengers?

Of course, Montenegro is a very place safe to travel. Our country is famous as a tourist destination, with very kind people who are accustomed to seeing tourists and will always help in any way they can.

Is English widely spoken?

Our tour guides are English-speaking which covers you during the tours. That aside, most locals and younger generations have a very good working knowledge of English which should not pose you any difficulties when getting around. 

What is the most appropriate type of luggage to bring?

We strongly recommend bringing a backpack or duffel bag, as suitcases can be cumbersome and difficult to store in buses, under seats, etc. Keep in mind that you will normally have to carry your own luggage on and off buses and trains and up and down accommodation staircases. Suitcases with wheels may not work well on dirt or cobblestone roads.

What clothing should I pack for one of your adventures?

We always recommend packing as light as possible, however the specific requirements for your tour will vary widely depending on where and when you are traveling. Each tour description will include all details allowing you to prepare properly. 

What vaccinations are recommended for this adventure?

It’s important that you receive the most accurate and up-to-date travel health information for the region you will be visiting. You should visit a qualified medical practitioner for advice or see a specialist at a Travel Health clinic.

Can I book extra nights of accommodation before or after my tour?

Yes, in most cases we can arrange additional accommodation. Please contact us for such requests.

How many people can join a tour?

We keep our group sizes low to medium so you have the freedom to move around and get involved with your surroundings, as well as get more one-on-one attention from our guides. Intimate group size ensures that your experience will not be crowded. Check the individual experience itineraries for maximum group size.

 

What are the age restrictions on your tours?

To travel independently you must be at least 18 years of age. There are no upper age limits for our tours as long as you are in good health. Travelers with pre-existing medical conditions are required to complete a medical questionnaire. Our standard adventures are open to children aged 12 years or older when accompanied by a parent (max. 3 children per adult). 

What currency is required?

Montenegro uses Euro as currrency.

Can I use card?

Yes – cars are usually accepted, but not everywhere – particularly in the mountains. For this reason, it is best to carry some cash at all times.

Is tipping included and if not, how much should I budget for?

Tips are not included in the tour price and tipping is entirely at your discretion. In the Balkans, leaving a tip is not rule, but a goodwill gesture, and the custom is to give back around 10% of the bill.

How is Balkan Adventure able to offer such competitive prices?

Our unique style face-to-face travel is the only way to really experience a destination, but it also serves to keep the costs down. We spend your money providing an authentic experience, instead of splurging on lavish hotels and expensive western-style meals. We pass these savings on to you with our low prices. We leave many other activities as optional add-ons to provide you the freedom and flexibility to choose what you would like to do on a daily basis.
