Great combination of history and landscape. This tour of Albania with a day and night in Kosovo highlighted both the natural world and complex anthropology of this little known region. Our enjoyment was greatly enhanced by a knowledgeable leader and invited expert.

An eyeopening experience. This was an area that I was not familiar with and my expectations were low. But Kudu provided a magnificent trip and introduced me to the many wonders of the Balkan region. This is our fourth trip with them and each one of them has been different and each one has been wonderful. The operators and knowledgeable and enthusiastic, they add much to each trip.
