        Best day!
        This tour was amazing. We changed our itinerary slightly as we decided to stay in Pristina the night before the tour, so our guide met us at the hotel instead. Avi was so knowledgeable about the city and we saw so much on the walking tour, it is one of the most interesting cities we've ever visited! The itinerary was perfectly planned and the ideal pace. I highly recommend this tour and a visit to Kosovo. It's an amazing place with the kindest people!

        Amazing Day!
        A fantastic experience and highly recommended. Our guide, Petrit, picked us up and made the day very comfortable and enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable about each place. It was a very long day but that's because Tirana is very far from Skopje! However, it was worth it to get to Albania. The itinerary was perfect, just enough time in each place. Well worth it!

        Worth it!!
        We had an excellent trip to Sofia from Skopje. Our driver picked us up right on time, was friendly, and safely drove us the three and a half hours to Sofia. We picked up our guide in Sofia and had a lovely walking tour. We saw beautiful churches, government buildings, the changing of the guards and natural spring fountains. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke excellent English. A highlight for us was a stop at a mountain monastery on the way back. I would highly recommend this day trip!

        A must do!
        I can't say enough good things about this experience. I went with my brother and it was something I was unsure about at first as it was a longer one than I'm used to but he's very into history so insisted we go. It was by far the best decision we made for this trip. The price seemed more then reasonable considering how long the tour was and how knowledgeable our tour guide was. He was amazing, prepared for the long distance travel, and filled us in about everything that one could want to know. He taught us about Macedonian history and current customs. I can not speak more highly of our tour guide and this experience. My sincerest thank you! Definitely a must do!

        Very informative
        We really enjoyed the walking tour, our guide Vlad was very knowledgeable and took us to parts of the town we would had never found on our own. The town is situated up the side of a hill and some of our party had medical issues ie Angina and COPD but we had lots of stop on the way up so the climb was not a problem for them. Walking tours are not something we would normally do but we all enjoyed it. The tour lasted approx 4hrs with coffee break half way round and ending in a wine bar.

        Ohrid walking tour
        We did a walking tour of Ohrid with Naumka. It was the most enjoyable afternoon. Easy pace of walking, very personal tour from a local person. Highly recommended it set us up for lots of places to return to.

        Worth it!
        We did not want to return without seeing this charming town, which is on the UNESCO world cultural heritage list. Lake Ohrid is a precious lake that hosts more than 200 fish species. We are very lucky to have chosen this tour. Communicating with the agency was very fast and easy. Local guide was so knowledgable and friendly. If u do not have enough time to stay here. I highly recommend this tour

        a little bit of Paradise
        Guide met me at my hotel at time convenient to me, which was 3 hours after planned starting time. So kudos for flexibilit6y. Did not stint on the time for the tour and we walked all over the town stopping at key sites along the way. Even walked to the new theological university under construction and to the fabulously situated St. John Kaneo. If I had been on time, we would have also stropped at Holy Mary Peribleptos and the Icon Museum which are not on the usual walking tour, but incredibly special places not to be missed.

        Fascinating town
        Very informative, Martina was excellent! Also very flexible, so we could stop for a coffee and a chat about all things Macedonian rather than just Ohrid

        Amazing boat tour from Ohrid to St. Naum with lunch and coffee
        Today we took a boat tour from Ohrid to st. Naum with Lale tours. It lasted all day (from 9 am until 6pm). We were picked from our hotel, taken to the boat and the tour started. The guide Daniel is very nice guy who speeks good english and is very witty and funny. We were taken to see Bay of Bones, then taken to the coffee in a little village and given tour of the said village. Then we continued to st. Naum where we had 2 hours free time to see a monestary and the guide explaine to us the history related to it. I recommend to take a boat tour od the springs there. After that we were taken to the lunch at st. Znaum where the cook prepared delicious barbacue for us and we were given 2 hours to swim on the beach that has the clearest water I ever saw. After that we were taken to the place from which it is possible to jump from the cllif in the lake (if u want of course).The boat had speakers with great music and we had a lot of fun. The tour price is 36€ per person and includes beverages, lunch and coffee at the villlage. I think this is the best and incredibely affordable whole-day tour!! We loved it! I highly recommend it to everyone. As i understood, the agancy is family owned and they really do their best so their guests have great time. Plus at the agency headquaters they have amazing german shephard Max who loves cuddles and greats everyone.

        Don't Miss Ohrid with Experiene Balkan
        Outstanding Experience and Service. Daniel and his colleagues helped plan an exciting and fun adventure in Ohrid. They were extremely patient and clearly enjoy their work. Daniel shared his love for Ohrid and impressive knowledge with a an all-day tour and found us an outstanding hotel very close to the center of town. All of his recommendations were perfect. He also recommended a colleague to drive us to Thessaloniki, which was extremely helpful due to the Covid issues. I can't wait to return and when I begin planning, I will contact Experience Balkan immediately.

        Perfect local guide
        My guide Naumka grew up in the city has tremendous knowledge about the history and culture. She did an excellent job of explaining the details of the sites that I would have otherwise overlooked. Excellent english, and she clearly loves her city and sharing it with visitors.

        My stupendous trip
        We have visited 3 Balkan countries, and Ohrid was one of the highlights of our trip. Its much more prettier than on the photos, and wster is perfectly clear. Tour did meet our expectations, and to daul away without the guide it would be pretty but much less interesting. Our guide bob was easy going polite and interesting and he made our day. Hope to come back here with my family and stay longer, and for sure i will contact Balkan experience again.. They are very professional.

      I am interested in the ancient Macedonian civilization and while I was in Skopje, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to book a trip to Greece. And it was really something. The tomb of Phillip the Second of Macedon is definitely one of the world wonders. It was spectacular. The next we visited was Pella, the birthplace of Alexander the Great. The museum and the archaeological site were equally amazing. Toni the driver, and Peter the guide were an excellent team. We recommend
