Mr Chandra Tiwary

Lack of good vegetarian meal was minus point for us,hence 4* otherwise good. A very big attraction was free transfer service to and from home to the airport and that too a good and prompt service in that respect. Over all I would very much like to book a holiday again with Cosmos and recommend to my family and friends. And also the coach driver too was good,along side tour guide Mr Mladen.

A great holiday but too many early starts ( getting up at 5.30) and a bit too much traveling each day. Perhaps the holiday could be a day or two longer? Would have liked more time in Split, Dubrovnik and Zagreb.

Too much time travelling between locations - not enough time at each location. Length of holiday too short to fit it all in.

A very good tour but not for the faint-hearted as it was very intensive with 6am wake-up calls most mornings. However we saw a lot and overall it was very good value for money. Our Tour Director, Went, and Driver, Norbert, were excellent.
