Daytrip through The Balkans

In August my husband and I and another couple had a wonderful 3-week tour of The Balkans. We started in Romania and finished up in Croatia. After having one driver/guide in Romania and part of Bulgaria, we began to use My Daytrip on our trip from Sofia to Skopje. (A few years ago we had a wonderful experience with Daytrip on a previous trip to Spain and Portugal, so we had no hesitation in using them on this trip.) Over the course of our Balkan trip, we used Daytrip 7 times, and were never disappointed. Each time our driver picked us up at our departure hotel and delivered us to the lobby of our next hotel. The drivers were always on time. They were always excellent drivers. Language was never a barrier. Most were very fluent with English and quite personable, eager to share information about their countries and willing to make any stops to address our comfort and curiosity. The vehicles were always clean, comfortable, and of high quality. Our drivers—Ivo, Goran, Milosh, Nikki, Amer, Luca, and Andrea—have become a permanent part of our memories of The Balkans. They played a large role in making our trip a very special time.

Hassle free and reliable form of transfer and sight seeing

I used daytrip twice on my recent vacation. First trip was from Skopje to Sofia with stops at Osogovo Monastry and Krakra Fortress. A border crossing was included. The guide was Stefan and he was very professional, punctual and knowledgeable particularly taking time to explain about the iconostasis and frescoes at the church. The second trip was from Plovdiv to Sofia with stops at Assen's Fortress and Bachkovo Monastry. The guide was David and similarly, he was very reliable and friendly. In fact, he suggested that I change the last stop from Starosel to Wonderful Bridges as the former was more of a summer spa and pool complex. Wonderful Bridges isn't one of the listed stops, but judging by its popularity with the locals and the fantastical rock formations, daytrip should really consider adding that stop in. All in all, I would not hesitate to use daytrip again!

Pleasant experience

Our trip with Sorina was pleasant and relaxing (other than the Paris traffic, which isn't her fault). She arrived early and helped with the luggage. Her English was excellent. We made good time, and arrived a little early. We would use your service again.

The Daytrip driver advantage

Daytrip driver
  • Local knowledge about the route from Sofia to Skopje
    Including available sights
  • English speaking*

    All Daytrip drivers speak English* as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They'll be happy to discuss local history and culture with you, as well as answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with local culture. *Drivers for Lite service aren't required to speak English but must meet all other standards.

  • Safety first!

    We screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one. We also inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. And because our drivers are locals, they're familiar with the rules and customs of the road.
