The tour from Sofia to Skopje was perfectly organized, pick-up on time and the updates on the booking came reliably in advance. Skopje is well worth a day trip. Interesting story with plenty of statues from history in the city center.

Really really good experience and such an amazing trip. Skopje was really beautiful and the two guides we had were amazing. We only went with two others, so we were a group of four, which was the perfect size.

Very nice variety of sights to see, within a short distance of the capital. Bring some money as the optional boat tour is worth it.

Georgi was an excellent tour guide. Fun and full of information. And the tour was great. Mikail was great too. I really enjoyed it.

Great expirience and tour guide was very cool! I recommend!!!
