CROATIAN specialist Beyond Travel have added a new and exclusive small group special journey to its 2016 collection, the 18-day ‘Balkan Odyssey: Split to Athens’, now available with up to $500 in travel vouchers when booked by December 31.
Combining two of the most sought after destinations during the Mediterranean summer, Greece and Croatia, plus the unique neighbouring countries of Montenegro and Albania, this comprehensive itinerary travels from Split through the Dalmatian Islands on an exclusive privately-chartered cruise visiting Omis, Brac, Hvar, Mljet and Sipan before arriving in Dubrovnik.
From Dubrovnik your tour travels into the emerging destination of Montenegro to explore Perast, Kotor, Budva and Cetinje. Then continue along the coast to unique Albania for three nights before crossing the Greek boarder into Ioannina. From here you visit the spectacular monasteries of Meteora atop sandstone rock pillars and onwards to Arachova and Delphi before reaching your final destination, Athens.
There are departures in June, August and September. Priced from $8895 per person twin share, there is a bonus of $500 Discover More travel vouchers per couple which can be used against any additional Beyond Travel service.
The tour includes 10 nights central deluxe and first class hotel accommodation with daily breakfast and a large selection of other meals, plus a six night premium small ship cruise aboard MS Splendid and, as with all Beyond Travel’s exclusive small group special journeys, comprehensive sightseeing with an English speaking guide, all ground transportation, arrival and departure transfers, gratuities and hotel porterage.
