Book your 2018 Albania or Balkans trip & holiday

OK there is no excuse any more!

You’ve seen so much from the World but still haven’t seen one of its best little gems like Albania.  2018 is a great year for you to do it and to let us (choose us – travel responsibly – your money will go to a better development of the destination – in this case Albania and the Balkans) be your guides and local hosts.

We are already providing some dates for travel to only Albania 2018 and another tour combining Albania, Macedonia, Kosovo and Montenegro so practically a good and interesting part of the Southwestern Balkans  in 2018. Another interesting travel plan specially if you are a family or a small group of friends will be proposed as a more simple and  relaxed Visit and Holiday proposal based in Tirana, Durres or eventually other parts of the country too.

Please do not hesitate to contact and talk to us about how to organize an even more special private, family or group visit or holiday of Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and more (Greece, Croatia, Bosnia&Herzegovina, Serbia, Slovenia, Romania or Bulgaria where we have amazing partners). We’ll be excited to help!

  1. Hi Gjergji,

    We got home safely and the weather has been nice and sunny and not too cold!
    We really did enjoy the holiday with you and Andrea. We had been thinking of visiting Albania for some time but couldn’t find a tour that inspired us from the large UK operators, so when we met Elton in London and talked with him and his obvious enthusiasm for his country we knew we had to book with you. We weren’t disappointed! Thank you very much for sharing your country with us.

    To anyone thinking of joining one of Albanian Trip’s tours we can only say – do it! Albania has much to offer from stunning mountain scenery, to ruined castles and ancient history, to its more recent communist past. An adventurous trip but not uncomfortable – the hotels are, in the main, converted traditional houses, are all to a good standard and are family concerns. The restaurants chosen by Albanian Trip are excellent serving local dishes from local ingredients (and generous quantities – be warned!)
    We were fortunate to have Gjergji as our driver/guide. We felt totally safe whether in the chaotic traffic in Tirana or negotiating hairpin bends through a mountain pass. An excellent guide, patiently answering all questions about the sites we visited or Albanian life in general. He also seems to know everyone in Albania!
    If you want a genuine experience of Albania we are sure you won’t be disappointed with Albanian Trip.

  2. Lieber Gjergji!

    Linde und ich sind gut wieder in Wien angekommen. Der von Dir organisierte Abholdienst vom Hotel Sky hat geklappt und der Chauffeur hat uns gut am Flughafen abgeliefert.

    Linde und ich moechten uns bedanken fuer eine toll organisierte, interessante Reise, die uns das reale Albanien sehr nahe gebracht hat. Dein Land hat jetzt fuer uns ein Gesicht. Dass Du uns als Draufgabe noch Alban mit auf den Weg gegeben hast, machte unsere Reise außer interessant, inhaltsreich und abwechslungsreich auch noch lustig und voller Spaß. DANKE.

    Wir werden hier in Wien und Oesterreich Propaganda fuer Euch machen und allen, die es hoeren wollen und auch nicht, erzaehlen, wieviel Schoenes wir gesehen haben.

    Alles Gute und liebe Grueße aus Wien

    Ingrid und Linde

  3. Hello Elton,
    I’ve been home in England for five days after the super trip from Bulgaria to Albania, taking things easy because I was quite tired!

    One of our highlights has definitely been staying in the Villa with Star, especially having breakfast with you and talking to you about life in Albania. On behalf of all six of us, I want to thank you so much for that.

  4. Me and two friends were visiting Albania for the first time, and we decided we needed to see more than just Tirana, so we booked a one day trip to Berati and surrounding areas. We were met by Elton, who speaking perfect English, and took us to have a traditional breakfast including soup and pilafrice in the outskirts
    of Tirana.
    From there on we drove to the seaside, and admired the lovely Adriatic sea, and then on to the castle monitoring Berati. Elton was very skillful and told us both about the previous history of Albania, and also how life was
    growing these days. We had a perfect lunch down in the center of Berati with a lot of different traditional Albanian dishes which all tasted superb. After that we visited Cobo winery, and were given a tour before our
    return to Tirana. We were hoping to be taken the non-tourist route and Elton gave us the perfect ride back home to Tirana.

    As for anyone who is considering visiting Albania. Take one day out of the visit to Tirana and go on a day-trip with Albanian Trip. You’ll discover a whole new side to Albania, and for us it was the best day of our five day visit in Albania.

  5. Here is the best compliment two of us from Hong Kong can give to Albanian Trip and our superb guide Ardi: after eight days of seeing much of the country with him, the history, the mountains, the bunkers (!), the resort areas, wildlife, the food (!!), the trees, castles, UNESCO, and most of all talking with random people about their experiences now and under the old regime, we can both say we are almost persuaded to move to Albania and live there.

    It was all an enormous surprise, as we had no idea what to expect, and Ardi handled us with good grace and professionalism. Special thanks as well to Elton for showing us his impressive collection of memorabilia, and basically for being so prompt, friendly, and seeing that everything went as it should have done.

    We’re older, and this ranked without question as one of our top holidays ever. We never felt that we were trapped in a rigid plan, and with Ardi’s suggestions we saw far more than we could have hoped. Full recommendation to Albanian Trip!

  6. Hello Albanian Trip Team!

    As you know, yesterday we ended our “peaks of the Balkan”- tour.
    We all want to thank you for the splendid organization: really
    EVERYTHING was more than satisfying: the tour itself, the
    accommodation, the warm welcoming hosts, the food, the timings, the
    drivers, … and last but lot least guide Niko, who – despite of his
    young age – proved his natural leadership skills, his sense of
    responsibility, his punctuality, his patience and his sense of humor.
    Congratulations and many many thanks for your perfect coaching and
    arrangements!!

    You can count with our recommendation to friends and fellow travelers!!

    Thanks again,

    Hilde,

    Lieve, Patti, Marijke, Veerle, Skender, Ann, Myriam, Nele, Kerlijne.
