I was only in Macedonia for 2 days, but Vlado made sure to maximize every moment of my time in-country. His pre-trip correspondence was always prompt and helpful, and after I arrived he showed me every possible courtesy, showing obvious pride and delight in his country. He made the itinerary very flexible according to my needs and desires, displaying a level of hospitality that I have seldom encountered in my travels elsewhere. I recommend his services highly and would happily travel with him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, it has been grate pleasure traveling with you, You are always welcome for amother tour around south eastern Europe Happy new year and many new trips

He is knowledgeable, patient, calm, kind and he made our trip so memorable. He took us to places we would not made the time to see and made our trip so much more enjoyable and interesting. I highly highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tour in Macedonia. He went above and beyond for our family and we are so grateful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your visit, I am glad that you are satisfied with our service. You have one extra free day tour in on of our Balkans countries, I hope that I can provide you a good door to door service on your next trip. Thanks Regards

Vlado is down to earth, engaging, spirited, kind hearted and genuine. Passion, knowledge, enthusiasm, great energy-all in all, just a wonderful guide and an amazing experience. His fluency in English is great, very professional and made the trip accommodating to my needs. My tour had his own personal touch, this you do not get with many. He didn't mind that the plans were altered and he took me to all the hidden gems. Without a doubt I would be touring with him again! Thank You is not enough :-)

Flexible company, it divided our tour on two days because of indipendece day of Macedonia. Ilija was a great guide, spoke clearly, payed attention to our interest and told us much about Macedonia and it's history. Thanks for those unforgettable days in Macedonia.

I knew from the very beginning that I had probably made a mistake by booking my 2 halfday tours through mr Vlado. The focus was not really on guiding me- it was more promoting himself, talking on his mobile, trying to sell extra tours & trashing his colleagues. I was told that the included airport transfers actually did have a payment, in cash as he did not have to pay % to the agency. So much for the honesty he likes to trash others for not keeping. Confusing, tiresome and unproffesional.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am always, (and I will) doing my best for my customers to be happy and satisfied,(and obviously they are, with some exception) but sometimes somebody is allowed to think and have own different opinion.The time will show who is correct.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: The guide manager brought these concerns to Vlado and they both agreed that some practices need to be avoided.

Skopje is a very interesting place to visit and many people do not know about the country and the capital—the city is booming with new construction works and many interesting monuments which are hard to understand or learn without an experience guide, so the guide service is the must. Vlado may also advice you on many other options and local travels, even to the neighboring less exciting places like Pristina in Kosovo or much more exciting country side and great nature. I enjoyed the visit very much !!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yuri, it was pleasure to met you, thanks for the visit I hope we will see each other again, Spasiba

Vlado is very professional, speaks fluent English, and tells great jokes. As a local national, Vlado is very informative and answered any questions we had. He took his job as guide seriously and was very concerned about our comfort and safety throughout the trip. On our day trip to Kosovo, Vlado's son accompanied us, and he was simply a delight. His son speaks impeccable English and it was nice to have a group of four. Vlado took us to local eateries and even bartered with shopkeepers for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You very much, You were very nice persons and culture persons, please send me few photos on FB or Skype. Wish you more trips and see you hope i hope, regards. Regards
