Great day trip

My guide Alexander was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was also a safe driver (there was a rather long distance to cover in the dark). I sprained my ankle during the day out but with his help and encouragement I managed to complete an awesome walk in the Old town of Ohrid!

absolutely wonderful

Very nice guide with a lot of knowledge. It's worth the money. We have learned a lot about the country and the visited places. Very comfortable car with a separate friendly driver who brouhgt us safely throuhg the journey.

Definitely go out of town to the country once. Now really get to know the country and its people. Lunch is really delicious. Learned a lot about tradition and history. Breaths in the green.
