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
