I was looking for a guided tour through TripAdviser and my booking for some reason didn’t go through! Lucky me I found this website and I decided to never go back! We, me, my sister and mother enjoyed this trip a lot. For a first time visit to Albania we were introduced to both cities Tirana and Khroja with a very humorous and knowledgeable guide. I liked the storytelling, history and the customization for the whole tour. I highly recommend this tour for history, culture and experience lovers! I would like to thank the tour guide for taking care of us! My 60 years old mother was very happy and it was the best experience that we’ve ever had in Albania! We also appreciated the tour guide ability to customize the tour according to our taste and need! If I can give this more than 5 stars I would happily do :)

The trip was great and the guide/driver was super great! I had a very nice day. The guide was very passionate about explaining everything. I was the only person on the tour, but the guide explained everything very nicely and took a lot of my pictures. Thank you Llir for showing me around.
