Itinerary

Ohrid is a city that has quite a long history to offer. Throughout the centuries, this city has witnessed the taste of Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, the Byzantine culture, the Ottoman Empire, but most of all, the influence of the Slavic migration, which is still present today. Feel free to join in on this tour and explore the old city that is full of surprises. I will take you to the heart of the city, beginning from the top of the hill with the fortress of the Tsar Samuel from the XI century. From there, you will have the best view of one of the largest and clearest natural lakes in Europe, the lake of Ohrid. Next on the list will be the church of St. Clement (together with the archaeological excavation of the First Slavic university which is under restoration). Furthermore, I will take you to the oldest spot in the old city so far - the ancient theatre from the 2nd century B.C. 

I will talk about the local unique food and drinks while we walk through the narrow streets and the unique Otoman houses, and in the end we will visit 2 amazing workshops: the woodcarving galery and the national workshop for handmade paper (an ancient procedure of production of paper from the 2nd century B.C. from China) . It will be one unique experience!

Since the age of 20, I was looking for a way to promote the magnificent city of Ohrid to the world. After getting a Bachelor's degree in Tourism in Greece, I returned home in 2012 to fulfil my dream, and became a professional tour guide, proudly and generously presenting the magic that the town has to offer to the world. That very same dream encouraged me to open a tour agency, and nowadays, after many years of work and experience, being a tour guide has remained the biggest passion of all to me. Once more, I have the opportunity to present the magnificent town that is Ohrid to you, with the same enthusiasm that I had with my very first tour.
