Beautiful Montenegro
Scott and Kristin — October 2017
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

Kristin and I recently returned from the most wonderful trip we've ever had. I wanted to let you know how happy we were with your help and with introducing us to Zoran, our new friend. Spending the week with him would have been fun enough, but adding the beauty of Montenegro from those mountain views was beyond imaginable.
