Could be a great trip!!!

This tour took longer than what was planned. The Macedonian guide took a side trip with other people from the group, delaying our return time. We got picked up at 8 am and returned to hotel 12 midnight, 16 full hours of driving, walking and long waiting. If you join this tour, make sure the guide sticks to the itinerary and no hidden side trips.

Georgi has been an amazing tour guide! Apart of driving he knew every damn thing going around and it has been a crazy and nice experience. I would recommend this tour to everybody! The fact that there are not so many people around for the tour, makes it more intimate and makes you to get to know everyone! So nice

I was hesitant to book the tour because of the long driving time back and forth from Sofia but I'm so glad I went. We had a great day in a small group (4 of us) with a lot of laughs, learning and even Skopjian craft beer. And if you're into history and politics, you're very lucky if you get Giorgi as you your guide: he's chill, well read and willing to share the vast amounts of information he has. Highly recommended!

Tour, Shopping, and good Food

It was a great trip. It was a little bit of a drive at 3+ hours, but worth the time to go see that beautiful country/city. We really enjoyed the walking tour and the shopping/food available. It makes for a long day so be prepared for the car ride.

A Tale of Two Countries

I was unexpectedly travelling alone in Bulgaria and looked for interesting tours to join. This one to Skopje popped up and I figured it would be a great way to see a new country as well. The 3.5 hour drive each way seemed a bit long, but I was joined by two other guests and our driver, Adrian, was expert at talking about Bulgaria and North Macedonian history. He answered so many questions and filled in a lot of my gaps in Balkan history. The tour of Skopje was excellent as well. Michel was fantastic at explaining the old and new parts of the City, and was also a little flexible with our small group. When he left us for our free time, he had excellent lunch recommendations and very clear instructions on where to meet Adrian to return to Bulgaria. What I appreciated most about this tour was the opportunity to speak with people from both countries and gain their perspectives on the history of the region since the countries have been controlled by various empires and their modern history has been quite different given their close geography. If you're up for a full day of learning while taking in some lovely mountains and hills between the two cities, I can't recommend this tour enough!

Great day trip

We had a brilliant time on this tour, the guide came and picked us up on time as they said they would. On the way the guide introduced some of the history and pointed out interesting sights. The drive was pleasant and comfortable. On arriving to the city. We were then met with a local guide and he was very nice and knowledgeable, he was patient and it was just a lovely experience. We then had a further 2 hours free time. Which I didn’t think it was enough, if I had known there was so much to see, I would probably opt for a 2 day visit at least. Overall, it was a good taster to Macedonia and I will probably go back for a slightly longer visit next time, maybe there will be even more to see as the city is still developing. I would recommend friends to go.

Hi Maria, Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback. Your words mean a lot to our team. Regarding the time you had in Skopje for a day tour, it can't be more due to the long distance. We offer also a two-day tour from Sofia to Skopje - "The Best of Skopje and the Region in 2 Days from Sofia". This two-day tour is a perfect option for the tourists who want to spend more time in Skopje. We would be very happy if you joint it next time when you are in Sofia :) Wish you many great trips! Best regards, BulTrips team
