A whole day gourmet tour of the Old Bazaar of Skopje

We will enjoy a tour of the tastiest specialties that are unique to the Skopje's Old Bazaar, from breakfast to dinner.

We will also visit the landmarks that surround us in between our meals. We will walk from one place to another until we are ready for another tasty experience.

Please know, this tour would not be fully experienced by a person that has dietary restrictions, such as: vegan, vegetarian, lactose intolerant, gluten allergic. However, I will do my best to give you a worthy option.


We will meet at your hotel in Skopje and make our way to the Old Bazaar.
We will start with a breakfast tasting a typical, yet a specific salty pastry that can be found only in Skopje and only in that bakery. An entrance to the world of the Old Bazaar.
From there on we will walk through the marketplace near the Old Bazaar looking (and if you want tasting or shopping) the products offered there.
A coffee or tea will be our break from visiting the historic and cultural landmarks of the Old Bazaar.
After a 3 to 4 hour walk and visiting we go for a light lunch of a specific 'Arab' pizza, desert of the best sweets in town and then a traditional coffee or tea. Naturally all of this is located in different establishments.
We make another round of walking to see more museums and landmarks of the Old Bazaar, including the fortress.
Finally, we go for dinner for some meat specialty and tasty salad. The desert will be cake to your liking, and a slow return back to the current time.
We then go back to your hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
