Prizren is a Gem, Gracanica marvelous

Enjoyed my day trip to Kosovo. It is a very pretty little country and worth a visit if you are in the area. I went primarily to view the frescoes at Gracanica monastery having read descriptions of them in Rebecca West's classic travelogue 'Black Lamb and Grey Falcon', and the frescoes were gorgeous. The highlight was Prizren, a charming town that would be worthy of an extended stay, if you have time. My guide did a great job as did the driver. Would recommend the journey.

The day trip to Kosovo was really worth it. The driver picked us up from our hotel in the morning and had prepared us some water, snacks and other supplements to the car. He also told us a lot of Skopje along the driving. In Kosovo we met the local guide who was really amazing. He showed the best parts of his country and was really friendly and hospitable. We higly recommend to take this trip if you are staying in Skopje for more than two days!

Everything was great. The friendly driver was there exactly on time at our hotel at 9am, and we were there in less than 1.5 hours to Pristina. Our tour guide met us there, who was incredibly knowledgeable, and a lovely guy. The city very much exceeded my expectations. The driver was then waiting for us to take us (along with the guide) to a quick stop at a beautiful monastery in a nearby Serbian village, then on to Prizren. Prizren was absolutely stunning, and again we had a very interesting guided tour of the city. It was very relaxed and to our own schedule, so whenever we wanted to stop for lunch/coffee/a drink, it wasn't a problem. All in all an absolutely brilliant day; I couldn't recommend it enough.

Amazing tour to Kosovo! I highly recommend. Great country, awesome people, very safe and chill. Had a pleasent time there. Our driver Miki took us from our hotel in Skopje. Miki is a great guy, speaks very good english and has a lot of interesting stories about Macedonia and Kosovo and the Balkans, so the trip to Prishtina (around one hour) was a pleasent ride. Thanks for that, Miki! The border crossing was smooth, around 2-3 minutes. Passports and covid vaccination certificates and that's all. In Prishtina we met our local guide, Recep. He's a very nice and good guy. He's english is fluent. He knows a lot of history about Kosovo and the Balkans as well. I highly recommend to go to this tour and aks for Recep. You have a lot to learn from him. Prishtina is a really nice city, very clean, with a lot of history. But Prizren, is simply wow. Gastronomical capital of Kosovo. It reminds me of bosnian city Mostar. You can easily spend hours in Prizren, wandering on the streets. A lot of restaurants and bars with people chilling and socializing. A lots of beautiful mosques, old buildings and bridges. It's a must see city. Made this trip in March, so I recommend to dress well, because it's windy and a bit cold in the mornings, being a country between mountains. Thanks Recep, thanks Miki, it was a pleasure taking this tour with you.

Best day trip to Kosovo

We had great experience on this day trip. Tour is very well-organized which covers both Pristina and Prizren. We were able to enjoy both cities with pleasure experience. Tour is easily accessible for those who travelling with a baby pram. Our driver (Mirsad) is simply the best . He went extra miles from regular driving duties. He was flexible on when and where to pick up and drop off so that we could enjoy the trip without any rush. He gave great recommendations for Macedonian food and helped us take care of our toddler during the trip. Highly recommend to book Mirsad for your trip :-). Our tour guide (Suad) in Kosovo was knowledgeable, humble with great story telling style. Prizren is truly a hidden gem and a must-visit city in any travel to Balkans.

We had an amazing time with Gocu our driver and Ilir our Kosovar guide. The trip was very last-minute, since we booked it the evening before, but everything went super smoothly and the people we were in touch with were very accommodating. It started with a very comfortable drive to Pristina, crossing the Kosovar border. When we arrived in the city we went for a walking tour, hearing more about the more famous sites of Pristina. After that we drove to the small Orthodox church, housing incredible frescoes. Lastly, around lunchtime we drove on to Prizren, where we had lunch at a place recommended by our guide. If you end up going, have lunch at Tiffany. Don't let the name fool you, because it's dishes are wonderful! We saw the city from many angles, learning of its historical past, ending with a breathtaking view of the city from Prizren fortress as the sun was setting. Overall, I'd say this trip was one of the highlights my sister and I's holiday in Macedonia.

Absolutely loved the trip. Both the driver and the guide in Kosovo were very good. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable and we got the hsitory of the Balkans from him. The highlight of the tour was the restaurant our guide took us to in Prizren. The food there was out of the world! A must do trip!

We had a wonderful time on our tour with Redzep. He was incredibly knowledgable about everything and extremely friendly and easy to get along with. The entire trip was catered to our interests. Despite issues with border crossing during the pandemic, they were able to arrange flawless and easy transport for us. Highly recommended to anyone in Skopje to get a taste of beautiful Kosovo! I can’t speak highly enough about how great of an experience it was. Blagodaram!!! Faleminderit!!

I am so happy we did this tour. A driver picked us up at our hotel in Skopje & took us through the border into Kosovo to meet with our tour guide, Ajhan. He was so knowledgeable about the places we went and was such a kind man. To be honest, there isn't a whole lot of must sees in Kosovo. It's still developing. For me, it was just the experiencing the country on my own & learning the history by actually being there. Ajhan's honesty & appreciation for his country absolutely made the trip with while. After we left Kosovo, we were taken back to our hotel by our driver-- who was also great! Highly recommend going to Kosovo if you are ever in Macedonia!
