The United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD), and its Birthright Macedonia program, in collaboration with the Australian-based company Macedonia Tours, is honored to launch the GRAND HERITAGE TOUR of MACEDONIA this summer 2020!

“The Tour is created for Macedonians in our Diaspora who have never been to the Republic or who are losing touch with their ancestral roots. However, it is also for non-Macedonians who seek a unique tour of one of the oldest, continuous civilizations. A comprehensive tour that will expose the traveler to the historical and contemporary aspects of the Republic of Macedonia and to the natural beauty of the land” said Peter Dallas, Founder of UMD’s Birthright Macedonia program and UMD Advisory Council member.

“Macedonia Tours is extremely excited to work with the UMD in reconnecting the Macedonian diaspora back to its roots. The Tour will be an incredible way of experiencing our rich Macedonian culture and history while traveling to the best locations in the country. Macedonia has immense touristic potential and we are dedicated to promoting the country and culture world-wide through life-changing experiences,” said Blagoja Maslarov, General Manager of Macedonia Tours.
