About the tour

The lake of Ohrid is considered to be one of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe. Its fame has reached all over the world, and even NASA named one of the lakes on Saturn's biggest moon, Titan, after it. And now you have the opportunity to see its springs, together with Apostolis on this tour. Enjoy the walk through the small wooden bazaar, where you will feel the warmth of the local people. He will show you the largest springs, a divine place for magnificent postcards. In addition, you will be introduced to some of the unique species of fish as well as their history. He will tell you stories about the miracles of St. Naum - one of the disciples of Cyril and Methodius, and you will witness his greatest creation - the monastery he built by himself in the X century. If you haven't been to this place - now is the perfect opportunity to see what you have missed :)


Meet your local guide

Apostolis

Since the age of 20, Apostolis has been looking for a way to promote the magnificent city of Ohrid to the world. After getting a Bachelor's degree in Tourism in Greece, he returned in 2012 to fulfil his 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 him 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 him. Once more, he has the opportunity to present the magnificent town that is Ohrid to you, with the same enthusiasm that he had with his very first tour.

Apostolis has been guiding since Oct 2012
