The guide man was really nice! He thought us first and tried to meet our wishes as much as possible. This tour was like a private tour because there were no participants except us. While traveling by car, he also provided detailed information on the geography and history of Bulgaria and Macedonia, and the Balkans. He was very knowledgeable. English was very fluent and easy to hear. After a three-and-a-half to four-hour drive one-way, they guided me through the new town and the old town, and took many pictures. He told me about restaurants, souvenir shops and good places to exchange money. He also taught me to be careful when sightseeing with only two girls. The sightseeing of Skopje itself is only 4 hours, but it was a satisfying trip! The distance traveled by car was long, but the guide man talked happily and told me various things during sightseeing, so I was able to spend all my time happily. I was worried at first because the number of reviews was small, but I really recommend this

We were picked up directly at the hotel as agreed and then got a great tour of Skopje. Seen all the sights, but also the "normal" life away from tourism. Our guide Kate was super friendly, she answered all questions and it was a lot of fun with her! We can recommend this tour to anyone visiting Skopje!

Great tour!! Suzana is amazing and knows so much about all the history and facts of the place and it was just a pleasure being with her the whole day! The tour is very well structured and we got to see all we wanted to see! Thank you once more!

Suzana was perfect! Such an amazing day I learn so many things, seen so many beautiful buildings and places. Matka is definitively a place to discover. Thank you again for this great day.
