This tour was the highlight of our trip to Albania. It was slightly challenging but our guide Bledi was brilliant in distracting me at the more tricky bits. The dip in the lake was a welcome cool down. Bledi was knowledgable and engaging and very funny. If you want to do something energetic and experience beautiful scenery then I highly recommend this (especially if you are lucky enough to get Bledi)

This tour was great! Jack did a great job navigating the trail and offering words of encouragement and assistance where needed. Great guy! The hike was a bit hectic (6/10 for moderately actively persons) but the view at the top is well worth it. If you don’t give up along the way, that is! .

It was amazing but I think the hiking was not easy as stated, specially for absolute beginners. The guide was super friendly, informative, professional, helpful. It was just perfect trip. I would recommend it.

Kristi was very helpful and knowledgeable guide, I have really enjoyed the tour and recommend it to everyone!

Great tour guide, beautiful view. A little pricey but worth it
