Group Tours with Laurus Travel
Our group tours are in-depth cultural experiences designed to broaden your horizon. They are delivered by caring, competent and knowledgeable professionals under the guidance and close supervision of company owners. However, our group tours are not for everyone. Guests choosing us should have an open mind, a high level of fitness and a friendly personality. We must also point out that our tours are very much history-focused and we spend a lot of time at museums. People not interested in history and museums should look elsewhere.
