2. What is a guided tour?
On a guided tour you will be accompanied by an expert local guide from the moment of your arrival at Skopje airport, until you board your flight back home. As we operate only self-guided and private groups, we do not offer scheduled group departures. This means that if you choose the guided option you will have the guide exclusively for you, or for your private group.
3. What is the difference between single supplement and solo traveler supplement?
The tour prices are calculated on BB accommodation basis, and are valid for minimum 2 tour participants sharing double room. If you prefer to stay in a separate room, you will need to pay the difference between double and single room i.e. the single room supplement. Solo traveler supplement is applicable if you are traveling on your own without other holiday companions.

We have carefully selected a range of small, often family run hotels and guesthouses, with local charm and hospitable owners. In the bigger cities it is possible to upgrade to 4* or 5* hotels.
