This tour was fabulous! After a Macedonian friend told me I had to visit Ohrid when visiting Macedonia I booked this one day private tour with a friend.
Our driver/guide was Misho and he was very organised, knowledgable and hospitable. He was flexible to our requests and gave us plenty of time so the day was busy, but a relaxed pace so we could take in the many sights. Upon pick up at our hotel he'd arranged water and cereal bars for our journey ahead, the scenery along the way was impressive as we drove through the countryside.
In Ohrid we visited the lake, saw traditional paper making, bought some pearl jewellery, went to St Sofia Church, Antic Theatre, St Bogorodica Periblepros Church, Smoli's Fortress, St Clement - Plasnik Church, Church of St John at Kaneo, the old Bazaar - Charisma and the 900 year old tree, the day was rounded off with a tasty lunch at a restaurant by the lake.
My friend and I highly recommend the tour and driver/guide Misho

Absolutely brilliant tour. Kate was not only a great guide but also great company throughout the day. My partner and I really enjoyed our experience and felt that the personal touch of a good guide really added to our experience of not only Ohrid but Macedonia as a country. Couldn't recommend more highly :

This is a wonderful tour. Ohrid is a beautiful place and full of interesting history. Our guide, Victor, was excellent. Not only was he knowledgeable, he helped us decide how to structure the tour to meet all our interests. We were five adults, three in their 30's and two in their 60's. Everyone was pleased with the trip. We knew little about Macedonia and nothing about Ohrid but came away wishing we could stay much longer or return.

This tour was totally wonderful! My tour guide Viktor was punctual, polite and friendly, very knowledgeable without sounding boring, an excellent driver, and very accommodating. I had limited mobility issues and he adjusting the tour to fit my needs while still showing me all the sites. If you find yourself in Macedonia, Ohrid is definitely a must! About a 2.5 hr drive southwest, Ohrid Lake borders Albania. The town is adorable, the people are nice, the food is great, and the views are amazing. There are several orthodox churches that are centuries old and worth seeing. - Yara TRV
