The trip was excellent and we all had a fabulous time. The Sport Hotel was a perfect venue and the hike to Lipanca and then on to Mrežce was fantastic. This venue was also great because of the recreation room that it has. We found Grand Cuvee Tours company to be very helpful and very professional. I will definitely recommend Grand Cuvee Tours.
