This tour was just perfect. Skopje surprisingly has a lot to see and is interesting from many aspects. Martin, my tour guide, was just superb. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. He did a great job showing me interesting stuff, taking pictures, and answering a whole host of questions. The driver also who I used for an airport pickup was likewise extremely friendly and professional. This is a great tour if you have limited time in Skopje and want to see a lot of stuff, but not in a rushed manner. It was also great that the tour was split up between sights in the city center and some of the beautiful scenery just outside the city.
excellent tour. Guide Alexander took his time and explained things well. Lunch was superb and the scenery was amazing where we ate. Nice tour of the city also pointing out different buildings in the city. Visit to the mosque and church was excellent.
