We were picked up directly at the hotel as agreed and then got a great tour of Skopje. Seen all the sights, but also the "normal" life away from tourism. Our guide Kate was super friendly, she answered all questions and it was a lot of fun with her! We can recommend this tour to anyone visiting Skopje!

Getting to know the city on foot immediately after moving into your accommodation is the best choice. With good footwear on the way through the streets and in open, publicly accessible houses, it doesn't help to lose your bearings. Be sure to take denarius (MKD) with you to buy something. Don't forget your camera.
