I had a wonderful day exploring Kosovo. My driver had snacks and drinks available for our drive, and provided easy conversation along the way, answering my questions and sharing his love of his home. My guide was equally excellent, conducting the tour at a pace that was relaxed but purposeful, again allowing ample opportunity for me to ask questions and take pictures. He recommended a delicious place for lunch in Prizren, and was mindful of time, as I requested to return to Skopje in time to catch an evening bus. A beautiful day in a beautiful country. Highly recommend.

We were picked up on time by the driver who then drove us safely to Prishtina. The guide Suad welcomed us there and explained the city and the historical background to us in a knowledgeable manner. From there we went to Prizren and its great cultural and culinary possibilities. All in all very successful, great car with attentive driver and knowledgeable guide. Conclusion: Highly recommended!

Our tour of Kosovo was everything we could have asked for! Our guide gave us a fantastic overview of both Prishtina and Prizren including the history, the food, and culture. We saw a lot of the country in one short day! Our driver, Robert, was fantastic is well! I would definitely recommend it if you want to see Kosovo. :)
