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 and my son took this trip to Ohrid and the lake and we had a very good time. We stopped at interesting places and had a tour of most of the beautiful lakes. We even had time to have a short swim in lake Ohrid.
Our driver, Skerdi, was an excellent guide and he is a very safe and good driver.
I strongly recommend this trip to one of the oldest lakes in Europe and to the old country of North Macedonia.
