The update for our response to the Covid19 situation

Well we are living a normal life in this country (Albania). All is back to normal and apart from the masks on people’s faces and the news on tv, there is nothing to remind us that Covid19 is still around. While we wait for that blessed vaccine or a miracle to happen, we patiently wait and work in order to improve our approach to the travel business. Times are running fast and the opening has already started to happen since a while. We did have some very successful private tours this spring and summer. The people that joined them were very happy with our performance. All the standards for hygiene and safety were successful met.

We will make sure to keep present the requirements and as summer is ending and some more fall tours are about to start in a few days, we will make sure that we keep standards in mind. Our map of standards is officially approved by the Albanian Government (a good student of WHO) and the International actors with which we are in touch and we work with.

As usual we will remain big fans of authenticity and sustainability. First new reservations are coming and that’s exciting as well.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch! Any question and inquiry is welcomed, now even more than before.

We are certainly interested in bonvivant lifestyle and Albania and the Balkans are loaded with those. Let us know if you are interested in wines. We know the roads and the trails to the best ones. Can certainly combine those experiences with hikes, food experiences, nature and lifestyle. As day-trips, weekend breaks or full multi-day tours – we are really good at opening the doors of the best wineries of the country but also to the smaller ‘secret’ ones.

We do know a lot about the most interesting ones in the Balkan region. Do send us an email with an inquiry. We will customize a special experience or integrate it in one of your existing tours.

Did you know the Albanian typical drink is Raki!? It is originally made of grapes but any fruit makes good to very good raki. And the best one is made out of blackberries. Let us introduce you to this delicious but also dangerous spirit. We will taste some of it without risking to loose control ok!? – Promise!?

With Albanian Trip you will travel responsibly and your money will help sustainable development – we always support local families and businesses.

We know a lot of people in this country (and far beyond!) and we go out of our way to show you the best on offer, either with a small group of like-minded travelers or as a private tour. We cater to different types of travelers and what makes us different from others is that we don’t offer the typical tourist experience – we pride on unique, personalized service with friendly, intelligent guides and we want you to explore parts of the Balkans like a local would.  Our focus is on quality day trips and tailor-made experiences.

MULTI-DAY CULTURAL & ADVENTURE TOURS

We have worked with endless individuals and small groups to come up with an itinerary that is specific to their needs not only just in Albania but in many other surrounding Balkan countries (we really do have contacts everywhere.)  No matter how you choose to travel and whatever your interests are, we can help come up with a suitable itinerary and will provide a guide/driver and accommodation. We have several itineraries for multi-day cultural tours already set to go – you can find them here!

DAY TRIPS – IN OR CLOSE TO TIRANA

We offer endless day trips that we can customize according to your needs.  All of them can be offered as a private tour on any day of your choosing, but some are offered as group tours on select days if you’d like to meet others (see the group calendar here.) If you are pressed for time and want us to pick you up at your hotel for a day trip right in Tirana or to surrounding areas, choose one of these!  Just a few examples: you can enjoy a trip to Berat (the city of a thousand windows); head to the museum in Kruja and amphitheater in Durres; explore Tirana like a local; or if you are curious about communist history, visit some bunkers and beaches.

SPECIALTY TOURS
