Escorted Cultural Tours of Albania and the Balkans

In 2014 we started our first cultural group tour of Albania, taking in the beautiful south, lesser known gems like Korça and the UNESCO World Heritage Cities of Berat, Gjirokastra and Butrint.  Eventually we added a northern Albanian portion into the mountains and before we knew it, we had created some incredible journeys that our past clients have not been able to forget.
Fully escorted with a guide and driver and including all accommodation and entrance fees, these cultural tours will allow you to get the most out of Albania for an affordable cost. Yes, the itinerary is set in order to maximize your time, but your guide is always open to unplanned stops on the way. At Albanian Trip we have both guaranteed departure tours and ones that we can make on request.

  “Albania is a little self-obsessed, slapping itself heartily on the back for its own spirited survival and unique take on life. To be fair, it has a point. Lots of places like to think of themselves as the bridge between east and west, but Albania has a better, and deeper, pounding out of the boomboxes of the flashier cars in Tirana: the wail of perfumed eastern exotica over the Eurobeat of a western disco.”
