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
Had a great day in Skopje. Rante has an excellent knowledge of the town and its history. He contacted me before the tour asking for special whishes. He integrated them in his program showing with great flexibility. The food and the drinks we had were great. It was a broad selection of what the Old Bazar and Skopje have to offer. Macedonia has a lot of different tasts. I can recommend this tour to everybody who likew to know more about this great city. On this tour you experience Skopje with all senses.
