Cultural Discovery Tour of Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia

Discover three fascinating countries on this two-week tour, including one of the world's newest countries: Kosovo. Independent since 2008, Kosovo is often referred to as 'newborn.' Along with Albania and Macedonia, this is a region that is off the beaten track and most travellers still know little about. On this tour you'll have the chance to get to know them by exploring their varied treasures from their rich history to their incredible scenery including dramatic mountains, lakes and pretty valleys.
