Hello-from-Ivana-893x1280

Hi, my name is Ivana! This is the story of how The Balkan Tours came to be.

I started with The Balkan Tours because I believed the tours around the Balkans could be better: more diverse, more flexible and personalised, and with a greater focus on culture, nature, history and food.

I’ve been in tourism since my university days when I was guiding exchange students around the Balkans. Although I wasn’t a professional guide back then, that passion of mine carried into my adulthood, when I decided that this is what I want to do.

The dynamic nature of working as a tourist guide, always being outside — All this inspires me every day to keep at it. Coupled with lots of awesome clients I meet, I couldn’t dream of anything else I would rather do.

While I gained a lot of experience in my previous jobs, I also got to know what people who travel want — what their needs are, the most common complaints, and what brings them joy. The Balkans are such a wonderful place that it would be a waste if a bad tour experience ruins it.

That’s why I got the idea for The Balkan Tours travel agency with one simple goal: to make the Balkans one of the top destinations when people plan their holidays. 

How? To make every guest of ours remember their tour here most fondly, and recommend it to everyone they know.

Balkans are the hidden gem of Europe

The Balkans are still largely unknown to the wider world as a travelling destination. That's why we want to share with you all that we know about that area and its culture. We have everything from sunny beaches on our Mediterranean coast in summer, skiing in the winter, to hiking tours in our mountains during spring and autumn. The Balkans are beautiful every time of the year.

That also makes the Balkans an awesome travel destination! Because it’s relatively unknown, it offers great value for money. But not only that!

It covers a wide area with a big mix of unique cultures and diverse landscapes, each worth knowing just on its own. In that sense, you don’t have to travel far to see and experience a lot. And of course, everyone falls in love with the delicious food once they try it.

The positive feedback we get from our guests shows our international team and me that we are on the right track. All kinds of people come on our tours, and nobody leaves dissatisfied. Why? Because Balkans is a place full of surprises where everyone can find something for themselves.

Striving to be the best Balkan travel agency

We are a local agency committed to sharing our love for the Balkans with travelers from all around the world. We operate under the umbrella brand of Slovenia Discovery, which is a leading destination specialist with multiple brands in the region.
