Old town of Ohrid. UNESCO heritage

Duration: 2h and 30min
Languages: English, Greek
Guru: Apostolis
Registered on July 14, 2021

Since the age of 20, I Have been looking for a way to promote my magnificent city of Ohrid to the world. After getting a Bachelor's degree in Tourism in Greece, I returned in 2012 to fulfil my dream, and became a professional tour guide, proudly and generously presenting the magic that the town has to offer to the world. That very same dream encouraged me to open a tour agency, and nowadays, after many years of work and experience, being a tour guide has remained the biggest passion of all for me. Once more, I have the opportunity to present the magnificent town that is Ohrid to you, with the same enthusiasm that I had with my very first tour.

Tour description

The city of Ohrid has quite a long history to offer. Located next to one of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe, this place so called "The pearl of the Balkan" will astonish you  with its amazing breathtaking views. Throughout the centuries,

Ohrid has witnessed the taste of Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, the Byzantineculture, the Ottoman Empire, but most of all, the influence of the Slavic migration, which is still present today.

I will take you to the heart of the city, where you will see the fortress of the Tsar Samuel from the XI century. From there, you will have the best view of one of the largest and clearest natural tectonic lakes in Europe, the lake of Ohrid.
Furthermore, I will take you to the oldest spot in the old city so far - the ancient theatre from the 2nd century B.C. We will continue through the narrow streets where I will present to you 2 unique workshops for handmade paper and handmade woodcrafts.

I will show you the famous Ohrid pearl and will tell you the secret how it's made. It is going to be one unforgettable experience!
