Andi and Juli (sorry i don’t know if that is spelled right or not) were great tour guides. Both very knowledgeable, accommodating, smart, funny guys and made the trip so much better. Ohrid is beautiful, driving through the mountains was a great experience and we just had a great time. I highly recommend this tour.

From long time we were looking forward to visit Ohrid and the tour was exactly what we were looking for.
It was very informative and lots of fun. The history of the city was magnificent, and very well explained by Skerdi. We really recommend to everyone short in time like us.

I have been lucky to have Andi as a guide. Both the tour and the guide were amazing! The landscape is astonishing. Andi knows a lot about the region and the surrounding territories. Go for it, you won’t regret it and that will sure stay a memory for life.
