In every city that I’ve been traveling to this year (and there are many!) I always start with their free walking tour. Aleksander’s tour of North Macedonia is amongst my top 5 favorite so far! He is incredibly knowledgeable (practically a walking Encyclopedia of so many interesting historical, political, social facts), really friendly, and was kind enough to give the tour even though I was the only one signed up for the tour! Ultimately I brought a friend along, but I so appreciate his professionalism, punctuality, hospitality, and the extra care and attention and great conversation flow that we had. If you are visiting Skopje and want an excellent tour, search no further than Aleksander’s your. One more thing: the friend I took along had already actually done a tour with another morning tour company, so after our tour I asked him which was better and he said hands down Aleksandar took us to so many more spots and gave such better descriptions/more interesting facts. I recommend going with Aleksandar’s tour for that one-on-one more private attention and care.

Aleksander was a fantastic guide to the city. He is so knowledgeable about both the city and it's wider place in history and the world. His enthusiasm is infectious and I feel extremely lucky to have had a tour from him. Many thanks Alexander - I hope I can return the favour if you or your family come to London 🙂

Aleksandar is an exemplary tour guide! My friend and I went “Walking in Skopje “ last week and were blown away by his knowledge of the Balkan region, his excellent language skills and the comprehensiveness of his tour. We learned so much about North Macedonia and the city of Skopje. I highly recommend Aleksandar as he is much like the people of his country: Intelligent, thoughtful, charming and very hospitable.

After taking a 9:30am solo tour of Skopje with Aleksandar this morning, I can heartily attest that this man is the best tour guide I've encountered in the Balkans (and possibly all of Europe). He's a true font of knowledge, genuine, passionate about history, kind, funny, and expresses a deep love for his country. Better yet, he's also a genuinely nice guy that will quickly feel like a long lost friend. As an added bonus, his proficiency in English is so superlative (and his acquired US accent so convincing) that he could easily pass as American... meaning that English speaking customers are virtually guaranteed to understand the conversation, which in my experience is not always the case. Five stars!
