The Kosovo day tour was perfect all round. Our driver Jordan was extremely punctual, very accommodating and we had a very pleasant conversation on the trip to Kosovo. In Pristina we met our guide Muamer and we couldn't have imagined a better person to make this day for us and not only to explain the history, people and everyday life in Kosovo, but in a very natural and fascinating way bring closer. During the tour of both cities he showed us the most important sights and at the same time made sure that we also got an insight into life in Kosovo. It was important to him at all times what interested us and what we would like to do. His extensive knowledge, his openness to his own story and his very personable manner made the trip a complete and really great experience that we will think back to more often. Highly Recommended!

HIGHLIGHT of our trip in Macedonia

I love this trip so much. Miki pick us up on time and he was friendly. He let us meet the guide Valon, which is very engaging and has a vast knowledge. It's very suitable for anyone who wants to hear about Kosovo. Prizren is my favourite because the city looks so authentic and I should spend a night there I guess. Anw it's really worth going to Kosovo with this tour. Ask for Valon if possible :))))
