We spent a whole day with dance, boss and our super driver that day, and Vaska, super guide and speaks perfect German, in Ohrid and Mavrovo. Vaska could explain and show us a lot about everything and has a great knowledge of all of Macedonia, the religion and the people. We had a lot of fun and we would book the tour again anytime!

Long but worthwhile trip. First we go to the Mavrovo National Park (unfortunately we had bad luck with the weather there, so this was only done briefly), then we looked at an orthodox monastery on the mountain. Very nice complex with a church that is over 1,000 years old (rebuilt again and again after destruction) and received very interesting explanations from a monk in English. Ohrid a beautiful city in which there was a 2-hour tour by the guide (lake, old houses, book printing in the Middle Ages, Art Colosseum only older, etc.). Was very informative. also had free time for food and coffee on site.

Fantastic day discovering Mavrovo and Ohrid

Many thanks to our tour guide and driver for taking us on an informative and enjoyable trip from Skopje to Mavrovo and Ohrid that also included a visit to a beautiful monastery and stops by three man-made lakes. We learned a great deal about Macedonian history both ancient and recent. This provided us with an excellent overview of the region.
