Know More about this tour

Starting from your hotel in Skopje, traveling to Ohrid for about 2 hours, after that break in Ohrid for half day tour with licensed tour guide.

The walking tour starts from the towns harbor. Then you head towards the old part of the town and stop at the Lower Gate and the Museum of Robevi (the Robevi family) What follows is a tour of the church of St Sophia which dates from the 11th century and then go up to the Roman amphitheater which dates back to the 3rd century BC. Afterwards continue walking to the Icon Gallery, which shows a range of some of the most famous and valuable icons in the world right after the ones on Athos and in Russia. In the vicinity of the gallery is the church of Sveta Bogorodica Perivleptos (St Clements Church of the Holy Mother of God Most Glorious) which dates from the 13th century and possesses some of the most beautiful and valuable frescoes from the 13th century not only in our country but in the Balkans as well.
After that, carry on walking to Tsar Samoils Fortress which was named after the first tsar of the Macedonian Slavs, who having conquered Byzantium, brought most of Macedonia under his rule. Then walk to Plaoshnik, the place where we visit the newly built St Clements Monastery Church which is dedicated to St Clement (the patron of Ohrid) and St Pantelejmon, and which stands beside the original site of St Clements University, the first university of the Macedonian Slavs started in the 9th century AD. Inside the church you can also see the tomb with St Clements relics. Beside the church you can see the foundations of the 5th-century basilica with beautifully preserved mosaic floors and some swastikas also discovered on the floors. From here head towards the Church of St Jovan at Kaneo, which was built at the end of the 13th century, and is one of the most frequently visited churches in Ohrid because of its beautiful location on the cliffs directly above the lake. After this go back to the town on foot. Another option is to return to the town by boat and at the same time to make a tour of the lake providing you with a great view of the town.

There is the possibility for free time or lunch. After that continue your trip to Tirana and drop off of your address or your hotel accommodation.

    The trip from Skopje was remarkable for the incredible scenery and the stop in Ohrid. Our driver Dragon shared invaluable information about life in Macedonia, and our guide in Ohrid, Naunca, was absolutely terrific as she explained the ancient history of the region while we toured the amazing town and took in the unbelievably beautiful scenery around the lake.

    Our tour guide Naumka was very knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic to show us her beautiful city! We could not be happier with our tour and guide! Our driver Robert was also fantastic and friendly. Stopped whenever we needed. Highly recommend this tour!!

    Потрясающий трансфер на комфортабельном автомобиле с общительным водителем и великолепной остановкой на экскурсию по Охриду с русскоговорящим гидом👍 Если вы располагаете достаточным бюджетом, но у вас не так много времени то это однозначно лучшее решение чтобы и посетить очень красивое место в Македонии, и добраться с комфортом до Албании. Спасибо водителю Микки и гиду по Охриду Наумке✊✊✊ Абсолютно не к чему придраться, все просто супер👍🤝

    Our excellent guide Naumka Kuzeska showed us the most beautiful Ohrid and very good restaurant ANTICO. We all had a wonderful time and yummy food. Highly recommend to let Naumka Kuzeska to explore wonderful Ohrid with you!

    Transfer driver excellent and guide appreciated but as such an early start would have preferred a break before quite an intense, long walking tour of Ohrid. Unfortunately weather was not good but the place is delightful and a gem. Having the opportunity to see Albania because of the drop off, this should definitely should be a transfer to consider for those who wish to see the Balkans.

    We took the private transfer from Skopje to Tirana with a walking tour in Ohrid. Communication with Miki was fast and efficient. We had Dragan who drove us safely through rain, snow and sunshine. Seriously, the weather we had was really unpredictable. In Ohrid, we had Naumka to show us around. We particularly enjoyed the “off beaten” track through the woods and ended at this spectacular view of Church of St John at Kaneo. Naumka also brought us to the Turkish part of the city where we had lunch. Glad that we had her as our guide as it was obvious she loves her city.

    A perfect way to travel between Skopje and Tirana. Ohrid is definitely worth a visit and being at the halfway point, it's a great stopover. Mickey the driver was extremely courteous and professional, while Peter, my guide in Ohrid was full of interesting tidbits of information. The scenery was simply beautiful too. As transfer services go, this one is highly recommended.
