Long day, but really wonderful!
The guys did such a great job. Before the trip, they were in constant contact to answer my questions and on the day of the trip they really went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly. They even indulged my request to visit the Pristina Bear Sanctuary, which made the day even longer but was really a wonderful experience.
