- This is a most imaginative and well-planned tour. Every day brought something very special. The highpoints were the Tomb of Philip II at Vergina (Greece), which still has me reeling, the Rila Monastery (Bulgaria) and Lake Ohrid. Macedonia is a real find - a stunningly beautiful country of monks and monasteries, lakes, forests and mountains. Ohrid itself is a particularly attractive town.
One of Explore's strengths is the quality of its local. With one exception they were excellent, especially Maria in Thessaloniki and Soula at Philippi.
Very strongly recommended.
