There are several outstanding sights to be seen in the vicinity of Skopje.  City Tours caters to adventurous travellers, as well as people with drive to explore more than what can be seen at first glance.

The tour includes a visit to one of the best kept secrets in Macedonia and that is the Roman Aqueduct.  It dates from the time of the Roman Empire, at the time of Justinian I, from 527 - 554, and therefore the aqueduct called Justinian aqueduct .  Water through the aqueduct was transferred to tubes that used to cross the city of Skupi.  The aqueduct is a landmark that is well preserved and rarely available in such a grandiose in the Balkan region.

Matka is a lake near Skopje, with a canyon that abounds with surface and underwater caves. There are several churches of which the most important is the church of Sts. Andreja .   The underwater cave Vrelo is located within the canyon . There are many stalactites including a large one in the middle of the cave known as the "Pine Cone" due to its shape. There are two unique lakes at the end of the cave. Though the exact depth of the cave is unknown, some speculate that it could be the deepest underwater cave in the world.

    I was with my 4 friends of the 02.03.15 - 06.03.15 for the first time in Skopje and Macedonia. Of course we wanted to see as much as possible in this short period of time, what we then saw with City Tours guide was excellent! Together with an older couple we were picked by a minibus at the Hotel, so it was a small "private tour". City Tours guide has all our questions answered and likes the one or other photo of us... :D You could hear him to super good and I learned a lot about Skopje surroundings in the tour. His own experience with the people there has again given a totally different viewpoint. Even the bus driver was super sweet and has turned an extra lap for us again! I can sum up happy: I have learned so much in this tour and seen others in these days! Thank you very much! :-)
