A beautiful history filled day with our passion guide Naumka <3

I want to start off by saying, I travel to many different places for work. But in all my travels I have not met such a wonderful, passionate and knowledgeable guide as Naumka :) As soon as we arrived to Ohrid, we were warmly greeted but Naumka :) She is from Ohrid and is so proud and knowledgeable about her city and country. I immediately felt that we were in great hands with her. Naumka knew all the short cuts around town and made sure we did not miss anything! Naumka shared her knowledge of the history, different stories and legends and so many different facts of all the places we visited. We’ve learned so much from her, and I’m already sharing so many things she taught us! We also ended our tour with a delicious traditional dinner at Restaurant Antico, the oldest restaurant in Ohrid! It was such a lovely and special day and I will be sure never to forget. And we made a wonderful new friend, thank you so much Naumka, and Skopje Plus travel ❤️ I can’t wait to come back!

Great tour

Ohrid is definitely a place which is worth of visiting. Our guide, Jordan, was very friendly and very informative. He was able to give great explanations in perfect English. Our driver, Micky, was also very good. He was helpful and frendly and told us about daily living in Macedonia and some other intersting stories. Both men are very highly recommended !
