Fantastic from beginning to end. Felt like I really saw everything I would have wanted to see in a day trip. Guide was amazing and provided extensive insight into Kosovo’s recent history, as well as the much more extensive history of the region. I highly recommend this trip from Macedonia - fascinating country and excellent guide / driver.
