Bojan R.

Skopje, Macedonia

My name is Bojan, but people all call me Rante, so you can too.

I'm a professional guide that would love to provide you with adventurous experiences, blended with magical nature landscapes, hidden cultural sites, and tasty local cuisine. Being a graduated forestry engineer, and an MSc in rural development - anthropology and sociology of the rural, I am the person to show you the world beyond the cities in Macedonia.

My passion is bicycles and photography. So I can gladly take you on a bike tour to see and experience unique places. It is good to mention that my professionally related interests are protected areas, sacred natural sites, old trees, and places (what kind of meanings people associate to a place). Therefore I can show you the local's side of a place.

Skopje is the town where I live, though I've been to every hidden place in Macedonia. I love Macedonia for its nature, and for its traditional cuisine. It is a place where you can experience something different (a landscape, people, culture) on every few steps you make; where villagers will not let you go without having a drink together; where food is whole ceremony of tastes and love.

I am at your availability to make your visit and experience of Macedonia personal, unique and memorable.

A Recent Review of this guide

Boyan is an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. Rante organised for me one week long hiking, cultural and adventure trip around Macedonia. There were 24 of us and we had absolutely great time. We got so much information about Macedonia and also we enjoyed the experience organised by Rante. Rante looked after us very well. If you are looking for someone reliable and with a great knowledge about Macedonia Rante is the person to deal with. Rante will add many unforgettable memories to your trip.
