Tom GilmourUnited Kingdom
Bekim was a fantastic and energetic guide for our day of wine-tasting and visiting Prizren. As a group of 4 we had hundreds of questions about politics, history, international relations, customs, religion, food, drink, football and many more topics which we asked non-stop and thanks to Bekim we came to understand a lot more about Kosovo and everything we'd seen and heard during our trip. The wine-tasting itself could be improved, but Prizren was beautiful and we wish we'd had more time there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tom. Hope to see you again in Kosovo. All the best
Gary OswaldUnited Kingdom
A very good tour with an excellent guide. Bekim was good company, knowledgeable and very friendly. He explained the complicated Balkan history well and we enjoyed our day with him. Both vineyards were worth visiting. We preferred Stone Castle and we think that it might have been a better place for lunch. The visit to Prizren was also very good. Thank you Bekim.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Gary. Nice to hear you enjoyed the tour. All the best.
Pascal van der BijlGermany
We only had limited time for a short look around. Gladly Bekim responded quickly on all our requests, was able to organize an appropriate tour for us in very short time and was very good in interpreting all our wishes, even if we changed our destination on short notice. Thank you for a wonderfull tour, if you should ever visit pristina, It is absolutely worth taking a guided tour from Bekim.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Pascal. It was pleasure to guide your nice group in Pristina. All the best.
Stephen TallonUnited States
The tour was amazing. I am a graduate student of international relations and thought this was an amazing experience as I had all of my questions answered (and I asked questions the entire 8 hour tour haha). We saw all the important places and I gained a much better understanding and appreciation of Kosovo and the history and struggle it faced to get to where it is today (and what is left to be done). This was an amazing tour and if you are a political junky (or just love the Balkans) you will love it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stephen! Good luck with your thesis. All the best.
Brad WilsonUnited States
Bekim was very knowledgeable about all things Kosovo. We learned a ton in the day we spent together. I hope to return one day and will definitely hire Bekim again. He went way above and beyond including taking us back to Skopje.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Brad! Im glad you enjoyed Kosovo. Hope to see you again. Have a great time in the rest of your trip.

Nilar Andrea Chit TunUnited States
Great tour and perfect for seeing alot of Kosovo in a little time. If you only have a weekend here for a conference - this tour is nice because you see the winery, tour them and purchase things that are not available in stores. One of the winery stops were closed - but Bekim still found a way to fill the day with some great historical sites which complemented the day. Would fully recommend to those in a group or traveling alone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nilar! Im glad you enjoyed a tour at the winery and other historical sites.
Nilar Andrea Chit TunUnited States
What a wonderful tour! The day started in Prishtina with our guide Bekim. After a one hour drive we had a makiato(very Kosovar!) and began the walking tour. During which we saw the city, the mosque, the castle and lovely nature walk back down the hill and along the river. We also at his recommendation had a wonderful lunch. The city itself is very charming but the guide was what made this tour special - his knowledge of culture, history and architecture was impressive. I would fully recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Nilar.

Isabel Baltar CintrónUnited Kingdom
I booked a day tour with Bekim for my long layover in Pristina and it was a great way of learning about Kosovo in the little time I had before my flight. Bekim is a lovely guy who is passionate about his job and country. He is very knowledgeable so he will provide you with a lot of information about Kosovo with a very open mind. On top of that he is also a very good driver! The tour was long but very entertaining so I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a guide in Kosovo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Isabel. Hope to see you again in Kosovo, to visit the rest of the country. All the best
Marjorie RobertsUnited States
Bekim is an absolutely fantastic guide and we very much enjoyed our three days of touring Kosovo with him. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation and in fact have recommended Kosovo to a friend as an ideal travel location based on the incredible time we had with Bekim. We visited museums; we learned about the war; we visited waterfalls and historic bridges. It was perfect. Marjorie (Jorie) Roberts
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jorie. It was pleasure to guide you 3 days in Kosovo. Glad to hear you enjoyed trip here. Hope you had great time the rest of your trip. Send my best regards to Daryl.
David SpaethUnited States
What a fantastic opportunity it was to have Bekim as a guide. While working at the ethnographic museum in Pristina, he brings a lot of information to the game, but in no way overwhelms a person. Easy going, light hearted, and funny, he made a three day road tour go by quickly, no awkward silences. If you're thinking of subjecting yourself to "The Grand" out of Communist era nostalgia, listen to Bekim, DON'T! Overall great man, look forward to working with him again when he puts together his new tours!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dave. It was my pleasure to guide you in Kosovo and hope to see you again. Keep traveling.
Clive RussellUnited Kingdom
Brilliant fun, extremely informative and knowledgeable, sometimes sad (the subject matter), perfect pace, prompt, great food recommendations, considerate and safe driver, shared the real life of Kosovo as well as it's ancient history. Don't miss this! Great preplanning and communication.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Clive. I am glad you came in Kosovo and enjoyed the tour, you are welcome anytime in Pristina. Hope to see you one day in England. Best regards to your family and Ali.
Me and my two friends had a tour, including major highlights of the country with Bekim. We are very experienced travellers, participated in many similar tours, but Bekim was the best we ever met. He is extremely intelligent, can speak about everything, we received huge amount of useful information about the sights and Kosovo from every aspect we asked or not asked. Timetable and organization was more than perfect. Strongly recommended both the tour and the guide personally.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Tamas, it was my pleasure to guide you and your friends through Kosovo. Hope to see you soon in Budapest. Best Regards
Rupert HillierUnited Kingdom
Bekim was charming, passionate and both generous and flexible with his time. I'd highly recommend doing a tour with him. Bekim's deep anthropological knowledge was called upon time and time again as our discussions wandered across the different regions and eras of Kosovo and the broader Balkan backdrop. Thank you, Bekim, for such a memorable and informative morning with you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rupert, I enjoyed the tour with u and your beautiful family as well. Im so glad you had good time in Pristina - Kosovo and hope to see you again, perhaps in Barcelona. All the best

Amir PournasrollahzadehUnited Kingdom
Bekim was a great guide for my Fiancé and I and showed us all of the sites in Pristina. He met us at the bus station on time and gave us not just a tour of the city but also an insight into Kosovan history and culture which would be impossible without his knowledge, professional qualifications and experiences. We would definitely recommend a tour with Bekim!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a pleasure to have you both here!
