Cosmos extends Balkan programme

March 2017

Touring specialist, Cosmos Tours has expanded its Balkan programme to include an exciting range of escorted tours in Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina and Serbia.

With five new itineraries, from 5-9 days in duration, the tours meet demand from customers who want to discover the incredible culture, history and scenery of the Balkan region. The new tours complement the existing longer range of 13 and 15 day tours which travel through the Balkan states as well as the range of shorter tours already available in Croatia.

The new choice of tours includes the 5 day Croatian Delight (priced from £962pp), 5 day Adriatic Highlights (from £785pp), 8 day Discover the Balkans (from £1006pp), 8 day Explore Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina (£1,130pp), and 9 day Treasures of Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina & Serbia (from £1157pp).

To provide best value, the tours are packaged with even more inclusions such as half board accommodation in mostly four star rated hotels, locally guided excursions, entrance fees to attractions, overseas transfers, flights and a private home pick up service. Cosmos price match guarantee applies to the new tours.*

Giles Hawke, CEO, Cosmos Tours commented: "In the past four years, we have developed our Balkans programme significantly, as the area has grown in popularity with those curious to explore not just Croatia but the other lesser known states of Bosnia, Herzegovina and Serbia."

“We’ve worked closely with our ground handlers, to offer fascinating itineraries which are shorter in length to suit a broader range of customers who have less time to travel but want to see as much of the historical cities and towns and outstanding natural beauty of the national parks, like Plitvice.”

“With all travel, accommodation and guided sightseeing included, escorted touring is the best way of experiencing more of this fascinating region.  We are able to offer flights from key UK airports to Zagreb and Dubrovnik, and with a flying time of just over two hours, customers can enjoy a relatively short journey to get there.
