About Me?

Hello.  I’m Bekim Xhemili, founder of Kosovo Local Guide, an independent professional guide, based in Prishtina, Republic of Kosovo. I am 38 years old, a graduate of Anthropology, with over 15 years of experience as a professional guide and cultural anthropologist.  Because I love working with people, and I love my beautiful country, my job – which i do with passion – gives me a great pleasure every day. My job involves introducing individuals, small or large groups to Kosovo and its rich cultural heritage, intangible heritage, history, customs and traditions, rituals, traditional food, great landscapes and beautiful nature of Kosovo.  My job is to make your travel experience a fun, educational and inspirational one. And, my photography skills can contribute to making your travel experience a more memorable one through your pictures and videos. Experience Kosovo through the eyes of the local tour guide!

Why me as your guide?

My education in combination with my experience with guides, my love for people and this country, my knowledge Kosovo’s social, cultural, political, and economic situation, make me  believe an interesting and enjoyable professional guide.

Over the past 10 years, I have worked with private individuals, small or large organized groups, travel agencies, state level delegations, Embassies, international organizations, schools etc. in delivering professional guide tours throughout Kosovo and the region.

In addition, many research and study trips that I conducted on Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology in different countries such as: Greece, Austria, Finland, England, USA, Poland, Sweden, France, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Germany, has helped broaden my understanding of anthropology  and culture of other nations and countries, which I consider is an asset for me.
