    3.5 - Good

    Bus was dirty, not all guides spoke english well enough, some hotel rooms poor, and communication terrible. We have just finished a tour with another company and there was no comparison. Your tour was more expensive but no where near as good

    3.5 - Good

    Martin stressed over and over he was just the driver. The first night when we met him in the lobby he stressed this. We assumed we would meet our guide for the trip the next day. This was not so.He has a poor command of the English language. He was very nice and a great driver BUT 1. He was not a guide as we never knew what the plans were. 2. We never knew what we were seeing in the van He got us very safely from point A to B but he was not a guide! The guides we had in each town were very good After Martin left us In Skopje we were not told we would have a new driver to Ohrid. Boyyo showed up the next morning to take us there. There are so many things that went wrong at this point: 1. He was a rough aggressive driver. We were in several near accidents due to his aggressive driving. Also no water. .2. Talked and texted while driving 3. Took us for a nice lunch. Sat with us while we ate talking and smoking. When we were done eating he decided to order and eat lunch, Leaving us to wait on him. 3. Next morning He picked us up at 8:00 am. He Wanted to take us to a place with view for coffee. They were closed(it was a great view). He stopped one place to get himself water( he provided none for us). Stopped another place to get a banana. Stopped at yet another place to get a coffee. Then proceeded to sit down, drank the coffee and had a smoke while we were waiting in the van! We left Ohrid around 9:00am We assumed we were on our way to Thessaloniki(3 hour drive) We were actually on our way back to Skopje(3 hours) Another scary drive with Boyyo. We changed drivers back to Martin in Skopje. We didn’t arrive in Thessaloniki until much later with no tour(6-7 hours) Going back to Skopje was not on the itinerary. I understand that Martin needed time off but we went several hours out of our way and repeated scenery to do this. ALSO, we were never informed that this was happening. It’s just wrong and unacceptable at best!! We got from point A to Point B, the hotels were ok and the city guides were good. This is the only reason I even gave two stars. Not having a guide/driver, never knowing the plan except what time he would pick us up is just wrong. When you pay over $150 per day you expect a little more then this! Also, when we tried to check in to the hotel in Ohrid they had no record of us. I finally pulled up the itinerary and found a small mention of Karaci Tours and they found it under that. P.S. the Holiday Inn in Skopje is awful. It’s pretty hard to stay there when you know the Marriott next door is $15.00 more per night. You might want to rethink this. I could go on and on but I think you get the idea. I really think we are owed some of our money back for promises not kept and the danger our substitute driver put us in!
