Full description

Set off on a guided tour of Dollma Bektashi Teqe. Enjoy the surroundings and the castle itself, as well as the Skanderbeg Museum and the National Ethnographic Museum. You will also have free time to wander around the Old Bazaar, with its beautiful cobblestone alleys and lovely old architecture. Head for lunch in a local restaurant in Kruja, with a tremendous view of the city and valley of Kruja.

After lunch, travel to Durrës for the last 'digestive' stop.

    This tour was really amazing. We started in Krujë, strolled through the old street market and then went to the castle. After lunch, which was excellent, by the way, we went to Durrës. We had a cappuccino by the sea and went out to the beach. There we visit the walls that surround the city, the Roman amphitheater and the Venetian tower. Then we went to the viewpoint where you can see the whole city and that indescribable blue sea. We returned to Tirana in the late afternoon, not wanting the day to end.

    Mimoza was great guide, tour started on time in the morning, whole day was chilled out & informative. Got to Kruja swiftly despite traffic in Tirana, visited the bazaar, took some scenic pictures, guide inside Kruja castle was very knowledgeable and castle Museum is well laid out, friendly staff and easy to navigate. Lunch at Meison Bistro was fresh & tasty. Cheers!!

    I liked the most Durres and Kruje, these places look amazing and they are well preserved. Kruje was the best of them all, a little physically demanded as is a little steep the way to castle grounds, but I enjoyed it very much. The bazaar on the way up is very pleasant. We had a marvellous lunch ( with an amazing view). Julian is a great tour guide. He knows all the historical facts and his English is great. He makes sure you’re comfortable & safe at all times.
