This tour was a really convenient way to see the Macedonian sites of Vergina and Pella. Both places are very impressive and have great museums. The tour guide was lovely, the bus was comfortable, and we were able to explore the sites at own pace.

I enjoyed the organisation and the sites very much. It was perfect timing and very enjoyable. The bus was waiting for us at the pick up point and so we didnt have to wait. It was a wonderful day

Great small group tour

Pick up as advertised. The driver/guide was knowledgeable, but the fact that the sites don't allow local guides meant that he was rather limited in how much he could impart. 45 Euros quite expensive when it didn't include cost of entry to sites/museums. Still, a good day.

Disappointing trip
Suprio_G

The tour guide was very poor. Never accompanied us at any location, although we found all groups with an accompaning guide. Went on repeating endlessly how time was short so he cannot join us at the sites or museums. Told us to save time he will explain the things in the bus...but never did. Forced upon us a long political discourse on how bad is North Macedonia. We are touring and political lectures are completely unacceptable and the tour bus is not the place for it!!!

The whole tour was planned superbly, we had enough time in each museum to look around and take pictures and even if the archeological site was closed because of the bad weather we could stop outside to get some explanations and take and overall look of the site.

Ganz nah an Europas alter Geschichte

Die Tour ist optimal, um sich mit der Geschichte Mazedoniens bekannt zu machen. Der Tourbegleiter Niko ist sehr kompetent und versteht es, Geschichte erlebbar zu machen. Die Strukturen des alten Pella in der Ausgrabungsstätte wurden sehr gut und verständlich erklärt. Im Museum war genug Zeit, die Fundstücke zu bewundern. Es folgte eine sehr schöne Fahrt durch die landwirtschaftlich genutzt Ebene bis nach Vergina, wo wir uns die beeindruckenden Gräber der mazedonischen Könige ansahen. Einen wunderschönen Abschluss bildete der Besuch des alten Theaters, in dem Philipp II. ermordet wurde. Uns wurde klar, dass wir uns an einem für die Entwicklung Europas hochwichtigen Platz befanden. So nah an der Geschichte. Unser Begleiter konnte das sehr schön vermitteln.

Oud Macedonië.

Zowel Pella als Vergina zeer interessant. Geeft goed begrip van ontstaan en opkomst van Macedonië. Indrukwekkend om te lopen waar Alexander de Grote opgroeide (Pella) en om de tombe van zijn vader te zien (Vergina).

Estuvo muy bien, fueron muy puntuales al recogernos en el punto de salida. George el guía muy simpático y se notaba que la historia le gusta lo trasmitia mientras explicaba. En Pella nos faltó un poco de tiempo, pero con el calor que hacía, casi se agradeció.
