About
The driver/guide will pick you up from the hotel or any location of your preference in Skopje. This full day tour will start with a visit to a beautiful medieval monastery in Grachanica (90 km, approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes from Skopje), rebuilt in 1321 on the foundations of an Orthodox church from the 6th century. Then, we drive to Kosovo’s capital Prishtina (20 minutes from Grachanica). We will be able to visit the 26m high clock tower and the National Library. In the Independent House of Kosovo we will find out the story of the former president Ibrahim Rugova in the campaign for independence from Serbia, and see the Newborn Monument from 2008, when Kosovo declared its independence. Sultan Mehmet Fatih Mosque and Jashar Pasha Mosque are two beautiful Ottoman mosques and famous local attractions. Somewhere on the way, we will have lunch. In the end, we drive back to Skopje and will drop you off in any location of your preference in Skopje.

PHENOMENAL COMPANY!!!
This was my first trip to Macedonia and Kosovo, and I couldn't have hoped for a better company to handle all of my travel needs while over there! Since these are unusual Covid19 times, and things change on a daily basis with visas and such, Daniel kept me informed every day with updates directly from the Balkan countries. He was extremely professional, and super fast at responding via Whatsapp.

Once we reached Skopje, Daniel, Alexander, and Kristina met us at our hotel. We chatted for a bit, and then they took us around Skopje for an amazing little city tour and a nice dinner. That team truly cares for each customer they have, and will customize any trips you might have in mind. They have been in the business a long time, and made us feel so comfortable the entire time.

We then took a one day trip from Skopje to Prishtina, and this was definitely the highlight of our time there. Our guide Pete (Petrit) was an absolute legend! This guy was so personable, professional, and passionate about his beautiful country that is Kosovo! We were entertained and educated on the lifestyle of these amazing people, their culture, and the outstanding food they have. Do not let people steer you away from visiting this unique and gorgeous country.

But all of this wouldn't have been possible wouldn't have been for this amazing team! Two thumbs way up to Daniel, Alexander, Kristina, and Petrit, for welcoming us with open arms, and treating us like family. I wouldn't travel with any other company on my visit to the Balkan countries!

Interesting day in Kosovo

The local guide was very professional and knowledgeable, and also a safe and excellent driver. He took us to Gadime cave, than to Gracanica monastery. We then drove to Pristina and learnt a lot about this country. I highly recommend this trip - thank you.
