Albanian Trip consists of a little group of travel, Albania and Balkans enthusiasts who were born and bred in Tirana.
It has a founding group and then several really great external collaborators like (certainly some of the best) guides, agents, hotels, character accommodations, NGOs and tourism consultants, great transport companies and most probably the best specialized drivers in the country.
Albanian Trip has shown Albania and the surrounding beautiful regions of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro to (modesty apart) thousands of high quality travelers with quite some good impact and great feedback. We’re doing this for ourselves but we do care about Albania and the region too. The main focus is to be able to provide travel and related services in Albania for groups and individuals always keeping in mind that Albania and the Balkans (just as the rest of the World) need to be preserved for the future generations. Responsible and sustainable tourism philosophy are part of the way Albanian Trip functions!
Albanian Trip is registered with the Albanian Finance authorities with VAT nr : L02302012L and is a member of the Albanian Union of Tour Operators.

After eight years in Munich, where he studied Political Sciences, Gjergji came back to Tirana to help Elton build Albanian Trip. Gjergji looks after German visitors but of course manages to earn the hearts of many English and Italian guests and business partners. Gjergji speaks German, English, Italian and Shqip. Connect with Gjergji on LinkedIn.
Vilma looks after the Albanian Trip office and bookings. She’s the person to be contacted in relation to calendar and availability related issues – she has a computer in her mind and is able to memorize and organize everything at your best interest. She speaks very good German, English and Italian and does understand a bit of French.
