Tour Reviews

21 April 2018

Very good introduction to a country unknown to us. Nice mix of culture, nature and walking. The view of the Ohrid lake is serene. Loved walking in Korça’s bazaar. Listened to live serenades at Vila Coffiel which was a unique experience. The guide was very enthusiastic and gave us a lot of knowledge about this city, the region, and its inhabitants.
