Excellent tour! The transport was prompt and on-time (actually 15 minutes early) to the hotel and the tour guide in Kosovo was extremely knowledgeable and spoke excellent english providing a high quality tour. I highly recommend this tour for a quick but deep dive into not only Kosovo’s recent history, but also history prior to the well known recent events of the 1990s. Highly recommended - this was one of my favorite tours in the Balkans.

This is a fantastic tour that provides a seamless way to visit Pristina and Prizren from Skopje. The driver Roberto was punctual and quite friendly. Once in Pristina, I met my guide who was very knowledgeable on the history of Kosovo and the many obstacles the country has had to overcome to get where it is today. Prizren was also a great site being that it is such a multi-cultural and tolerant city where you can find a mosque on one block and an Orthodox church right next door. Single Street is also a must see as couples vacate the area to allow single men and women meet after 7pm to find potential partners. All in all, a great way to visit Kosovo's two largest cities.

The driver arrived on time, and despite the circumstances to be able to cross the border because of the travel restrictions due to the pandemic, they were always working to make sure everything went well. This has been one of the best tours I have taken in Europe. I recommend it for the quality of service and the opportunity to get to know Kosovo and its history. Redzo, our guide, was excellent and always made us feel comfortable; he did a fantastic job and is very knowledgeable about the history of Kosovo. We had a fabulous lunch, thanks to the recommendation of our guide. It is an excellent opportunity to get out of Skopje for a day.

As a solo female traveler I was a little apprehensive about day tripping to Kosovo but my spirit of adventure led me there. It surprised me in so many ways. My guide Redzep confirmed a lot of my perspective of the country that was, but as he shared his personal stories and just how much the Kosovo of his childhood had changed I realized the country that is was not the one I’d imagined. The experience was made personal for me as it was very much a story of change and hope. Prizren was the side of Kosovo I didn’t expect, a vibrant city with a beautiful energy that made you want to explore down every street. It’s also where I learned that if a meal doesn’t have bread, cheese and meat, it’s not a meal. Literally people after my own heart. A day of contrasts and I loved every minute!

I was picked up by Redzo at the border of Macedonia to do a full-day tour of Kosovo. I loved Kosovo so much, especially the cute city of Prizren.

Redzo went above and beyond and showed me sights that weren't even on the itenerary, we ended up finishing around 9pm, after which he dropped me back off on the border. Everything was amazing, I highly recommend Redzo!

Loved this trip and all that I learned. Robert and Suad were the best. Robert drove and was so kind in stopping for snacks, giving me the recipe for a local meal, and then helping me find the ingredients. Suad was a wonderful guide and really explained the details, thoughts, and opinions of everything we saw. I wasn’t as informed on Kosovo before this trip and taking the tour was very enlightening. Overall, I learned so much and can’t wait to come back. I definitely recommend Suad and Robert.

Kosovo was a real surprise for us! Our impression of the country was totally wrong. We didn't expect such interesting and fulfilling trip. At first we didn't plan it at all, but since we had 1 more full day at Skopje, we decided to give it a try. Our driver and guide gave us all information we wanted and route was very well planned. We wouldn't have managed to visit so many places on our own and moreover to get so many insights. Service was superb, driver was friendly and easygoing. As we had a tour for 2, he picked us up at our apartment at 9am with Mercedes and we went directly to Pristina where we met our guide. Guide was very knowledgeable, he gave us a lot of information about the place and some perspective about Kosovars and their social life. Then we went to a monastery, which I strongly recommend visiting from inside! Our last destination was Prizran, where we had a lunch and some sightseeing with a bit of shopping in perfume store. We had amazing time and it's 100% recommended!

Given all of the logistical challenges during pandemic travel, Plus travel Skopje did an impeccable job with the logistics in getting to/from Kosovo, and the trip to Pristina and Prizren was educational, interesting, and enjoyable. Our driver in Skopje took us to the border where we met Redzo at the passport control. Redzo did a wonderful job to show us A LOT and share with us his vast knowledge of the history of this region. Many thanks to you Redzo and to the company for a perfect day. We feel like we came out of this trip much more enriched and comfortable than ever in the Balkans.

This is the second tour I took with Miki’s company and I didn’t disappoint! Muamer, my guide was excellent... he was so passionate about his country and home town. He shared his experience during the Kosovo war at and how the country is on the path rebuilding itself.. the country is still struggling especially with COVID. I’ve learned so much about it’s history while visiting Gracanica monastery, Prstina and the beautiful Prizren. Highly recommend this tour with Muamer... a quick day tour to Kosovo is definitely a bonus to my Macedonia trip!
