Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.Read more
Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.
Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.
I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.
Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.
Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.
Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.
Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

It was my first ever trip with Hiking the Balkans, so I had no expectations. I was pleasently surprised by the professionalism, the choice of accommodation, trails and restaurants on this trip.Read more
The combination of hiking and visiting thermal spas and wineries was ideal for an active, yet relaxing holiday.
I am planning to explore the Balkans more and I would definitely go with Hiking the Balkans again, they have good local knowledge of all Balkan countries, great contacts and are very good at recommending the best spots off the beaten track.

I had been to Skopje once before, where I looked at Mt Vodno and dreamt of doing a trail run up it. Fortunately, Hiking the Balkans managed to get me in touch with Dean, a fantastic running guide who showed me all types of cool paths on the mountain. Dean’s pace and fitness levels were great: we covered 21km and almost 1000m uphill in under three hours (excluding breaks). The views were great and Dean told me lots of fascinating things about the mountain and about Macedonia itself. I’ll definitely be in touch next time I’m in Macedonia and have time for a trail running expeditionRead more

What Makes Them Stand Out?
A passion project run by locals of the Balkans. All tours are hiking focused and imbued with a local spirit.

They are committed to responsible travel and incorporate this into each and every hike.
Who Travels With Them?
Their tours are specifically geared toward active outdoor travelers, looking for an adventurous experience. They are very focused in providing a unique local experience among mountain regions, so you won’t hit many tourist spots. If you’re worried about physical level, their hikes are suitable to most travelers, and there are many different trips to choose from.
Where Do They Operate?
The Balkans covers several countries, including Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Kosovo, Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, and Greece. Their tours operate in all these countries, with a focus in national parks and other specialized outdoor destinations.
Why Travel With Them?
If you’re looking for a unique outdoor experience among nature, led by locals, and with a culturally immersive touch, this is the perfect tour company for you. You’ll stay and spend time in remote mountain villages, and learn about the country from a uniquely qualified perspective. This is not the ideal company to travel with if you’re seeking a more traditional tour, visiting famous sites and cities. However if an active outdoor trip is appealing, they’d be a great place to start.
