Travel Forums Europe Eastern Trekker

I need to know if anyone has heard anything about Eastern Trekker? I was looking at doing one of their trips through Eastern Europe, either through Greece/Turkey or through Croatia/Bosnia/Slovenia and maybe hooking them up and doing a boat cruise in Croatia or something.

But one of my friends said they had spoken to Eastern Trekker at the TNT show last year and somone working there said the brand was going to "disappear" in 2011 and be swallowed up by Busabout. This hasn't filled me with the best of confidence to say the least!!!:(

Can anyone out there help? Has anyone done Eastern Trekker before or knows anything about what's going on? I looked through the last few TNT mags in London and there are no ads in there for it either.......

As far as I'm aware, Eastern Trekker is still trading. I've heard nothing to the contrary.
They are not a very cheap company though and what you get for your money isn't such a good deal - unless you're up for just a few days trekking that they do all the organising on. The student discount on a trip costing around £400 - for 6 days, is normally only about a tenner.

Thanks flyingbob, I posted this on Lonely Planet forum as well to see if anyone had any answers there as well and a girl called Susie recommended a tour called Balkan road trip, she gave me a link - http://www.balkanroadtrip.com
Trouble is, I don't know anything about this tour either? Do you or anyone else know about this one as well?
Sorry for all the questions!

Only that their quite a successful travel company and have their own website - no more than that, sorry.
