other than gawking endlessly, we did the Maxima boat tour. 30 minutes for 600 denarius. Tony is a helpful tour guide.

Beautiful setting for all of the gorgeous towns around it, the lake itself is beautiful - very clear and very deep. I pity the fact we visited it during the winter so there was no chance of a soak or a boat trip for us. The view of the unfrozen lake was very pretty, though. This is a great location... More

Excelent location for a backpack trip. Nice lovely people, exciting nature, and THE LAKE makes Ohrid area perfect place to visit. We were surprised by low prices for accommodation, transport and so on (except the tourists areas). For example the standard price for nice apartment is only 8-10€/head/night. No booking necessary. Around the lake with perfectly clean water stands a... More

We made four tours, the donkey safari, the 3 village tour, rural Albania and to the St. Naum monastery. Small group, good guides were a perfect recipe for a perfect impression of a beautiful country, and for contact with the locals, as we lunched several times with local families. My favorite was the donkey safari, with donkeys, guided by locals,... More

I was totally amazed by how clear and clean the water is. Eveything around it is really beutiful and the scenery with the mountains, the houses and churches make it a "must visit" place.

The hotel was over priced for the tiny room. The food was very average, and the service lacked. I know when we travel from the USA we have different standards, but when you cannot even drink the water from the sink to brush your teeth the red flag goes up! There is a sign above the sink to not drink... More

You may think that this is a small town with a small Lake. But, You are wrong! Ohrid town and Ohrid Lake are one region with more than 30 km lakeside. On this lakeside there are 362 church and monasteries, one for every they of the year. The Lake is like a small see, reach with fishes & planktons, with... More

To be honest, I'm not sure how to review a lake! However, we enjoyed our visit. The scenery is beautiful, in rain or sunshine! We took a 30-minute boat ride for €5 (total), which gave views that could not all be seen by walking along the lakeside. The area is definitely worth a visit. The main attractions are the views...
