Full description
An English-speaking driver will pick you up from your hotel in Sofia at 9:00AM and, after about a 2-hours drive with various landscapes to admire along the way, you will reach the Serbian border. After crossing the border you will go the nearby town of Bosilegrad (the former Yugoslavia's main state) before you cross back over the border with Bulgaria and head for Northern Macedonia. After another short drive, you will arrive at the beautiful Monastery of Osogovo – an incredibly powerful place in the hills from the 12th Century, which was later turned into a mosque by the Ottomans, and then again converted into a church. This place is very scenic and peaceful - take time to go for a walk around the area. Afterwards, you will have lunch in a nice restaurant with good Macedonian grill (meat or fish) and Skopsko beer, of course.

Very good, too bad the guide does not speak French, however he is very nice

November 2, 2019

The small Serbian town is ugly and anonymous. I can't believe there isn't a better place nearby. The monastery of Osogovo is splendid, but we had to have lunch there and found the restaurant closed. The unexpected happen, but a call to book me looks like a serious tour. The guide was nice and professional but unfortunately it was not enough for a memorable experience. In short, nice idea of this tour but it must be improved absolutely, also considering the cost!

The view was amazing

The view was amazing, the the driver very kind. To reach the reastourant you must go up very much stairs and it's not writen, our freiends have a big problem to go up. You write in the web that the price enclude lunch, but dont write that we can order 25euro and its include the driver.
