The tour was really great, thanks to Suzana, the local guide, who was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and willing to answer any question. Skopje is a nice city, but it is made even more attractive and interesting if adequately put in the context of its rich and complicated history (and present), and Suzana was of great help in providing that context. Time passed too quickly, and I was left afterward wanting to keep the conversation going! Totally worth the money, this guided tour made my Skopje experience much more personal and valuable, if I just had gone on my own wandering around the city center I would have lost so many interesting insights provided by Suzana!

We can only recommend this tour of Skopje in French which is rather rare and it's a shame because not everyone speaks English. We also chose this visit because it was in French. We particularly appreciated the explanations from our guide on the history of the sites visited and of Sopje but also of part of the history of his country.

The tour was amazing learned many things about Skopje that I never knew even though I have been to the city many times. Our guide was the best part of the tour she was generous with her time explaining to my young sons (10, and 12) the history. Would highly recommend but don't schedule on Monday museums are closed.

This was one of the 2 best city tours we have ever done. Our guide Suzana was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and always ready to change plans when my wife's walking problem ment she would not manage steep steps etc. We started the tour at 09:00 and ended it over a drink at about 19:00. This I think says it all.
