We took this tour to Ohrid from Durres, and if we could turn back the time, we would not take it again and do not recommend it for others. To start with, Ermal (?), our driver from Albania, was ca. 1 hour late to pick us up. He was nice and we chatted all the way to Ohrid. The trip itself however took more than he estimated. Once we arrived to Ohrid, we had a local guide who was spending more time to chat with locals than with us, and his explanations were hard to follow, in part due to his English. Due to bad organization the places with early closing time were left for the end and the guides did not know the exact closing time so once we reached the Bay of Bones, we found it closed. Due to our late arrival to Ohrid there was no time for a short boat tour that we asked. On the positive side, the local guide arranged us free coffee, and a small discount in a pearl shop. Still we paid a lot for the tour and we were expecting a better service for this.
