Jordan Kocevski

I have been a professional tour guide for 7 years. I’m an outgoing person, easy to talk to, one who enjoys reading books and travelling the most. My love for tourism is also academic since I have a PhD in Tourism and Hospitality. I hope to become a well-known writer one day. 

I love being a guide as it allows me to meet new and interesting people. The exchange of experiences and culture is what I love most about this interaction. I love my country and enjoy sharing my love with the people visiting by telling them stories and legends, showing them hidden gems and amusing them with just the right amount of information.

If you are up for an interesting and interactive tour, join me through tourHQ for a walk around Ohrid.
