Walking Tours Eastern Europe

Our philosophy is simple - to get out of the cities and into the countryside where you can discover the charm and beauty of the Eastern Europe regions such as Czech Republic, Poland, Tatra Mountains, Croatia and Slovenia. Walking with a small, like minded group is the best way to explore them. It is important to have time to "smell the roses", not to rush through but to soak up the atmosphere. We are great believers that the journey is what matters, not the destination! All our holidays in Eastern Europe are guided - we are not there to overload you with facts and figures but discreetly share with you the wonderful places we have discovered during our "journey".
