Albania Tour Reviews

4.8 - Excellent Based on 128 customer reviews
Highlights of Albania Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Albania
5 - Excellent
“It was more than a holiday. It was an adventure. So exciting to visit a country that is still emerging but accessible enough to explore so much of. Itinerary was full and varied but not exhausting. Gradual 'feed' of information from our own guide and others on route reinforced by visits to sites. Group size sensibly restricted. Living out of a suitcase not as daunting as expected as this enabled us to see so much more. Enough time allotted for most places except might have been better to have had more time in Berat and a brief stop in Durres.”
A very interesting trip Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Albania
4 - Very Good
“I really enjoyed this trip to this little visited country. It is so little visited we hardly saw any other tourists on our travels. It is correctly graded as a leisurely trip as there is no strenuous activity, but it is certainly a busy one with lots to see. The Albanian people are very friendly and welcoming. We saw stunning scenery and ate wonderful home grown food.”
Albania a Country of Contrasts Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Albania
5 - Excellent
“Every day on this trip brings new insight into Albania. Just when you think you have begun to understand the people and their country you learn or see something new which changes your opinion again. Our group of 14 (3 couples and the rest singles) set off on our adventure from the moment the plane landed, so be prepared this is a busy trip, but not too energetic.”
View of the Balkans Reviewed Tour: Balkan Discoverer
4 - Very Good
“This trip covers parts of Serbia, Macedonia and Albania. You see a variety of different places, including the capital cities of Belgrade, Skopje and Tirana, the hills / mountains in Serbia, beautiful Lake Ohrid, and many ancient and old sites ranging from Roman to Ottoman to relics from Albania's communist past. There are some beautiful places to see.”
Good Introduction to The Balkans Reviewed Tour: Balkan Discoverer
4 - Very Good
“This was my first trip to the Balkans and it was a good introduction to this misunderstood area. From great cities to great landscapes! We saw it all! I hope to return very soon.”
Balkan Dicoverer Reviewed Tour: Balkan Discoverer
4 - Very Good
“A very enjoyable trip to 3 countries. i think the day in Bosnia Herzogovina (lunch, train ride, bridge over the River Drina and film director's villages) was not necessary and the time could have been better spent elsewhere. the rest of the trip was very good and varied.”

“Trip to former Yugoslavia (Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia) and Albania. These are countries I had on my radar to visit but all the research I did revealed that they were not easy to get to so this trip was perfect.”
Balkan Discoverer Reviewed Tour: Balkan Discoverer
4 - Very Good
“This is a really enjoyable, varied trip that gives a great introduction to three interesting countries (and a brief sojourn into Bosnia) encompassing history, beautiful scenery, and the hustle and bustle of the capital cities thrown in for good measure. There are a number of longish drives, but to see so much in 11 days I guess this can't really be avoided”
Snowshoeing in Albania Reviewed Tour: Snowshoeing in Albania
5 - Excellent
“Snowshoeing in Albania was excellent. Blue skies led to some stunning images of snow of the Valbone valley and surrounding mountains. Snowshoeing was good with local information about each area was very informative.Lots of happy people ready to help ensure our holiday was fantastic.”

Albania - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A trip to Albania is like a trek through history. With Greek and Roman ruins dating back to the bronze age, Byzantine churches, and castles in abundance, Albania offers a veritable smorgasbord for the history buff. Bordering both the Ionian and Adriatic coasts, this beautiful little country offers not only ocean views, but majestic mountain peaks that allow visitors to feel as though they are stepping right out of a postcard. 

Tour Highlights

  • Visit Rozafa Castle, and discover the tragic legend of the young woman who was sacrificed that its walls might stand.
  • Discover 60,000 years of history at the Muzeu Hostorik Kombetar.
  • Take a cruise on Skadar, the largest lake in Southern Europe.
  • Seek out the source of the Bistrice river in The Blue Eye, a natural spring of undetermined depths.
  • Explore the Bizantin Monastery of Zvernec on an island in the Narta Lagoon. Yes, it is as beautiful as it sounds!
  • Enjoy the secluded beaches of the Albanian Riviera; while not as “secluded” as they once were, you can still find unspoiled beaches if you look for them. Start your search with Palsa, and you won’t be disappointed. 

Travel Tips

  • Public transportation is a bit unconventional, so be flexible with scheduling, and fasten your seat-belt - if there is one. Also, there are no meters, so haggle yourself a good price before you hop onboard.
  • Don’t expect to do much online while on a tour in Albania, the internet is not readily accessible.
  • Leks (Albania’s currency) has changed in value, so if a bill says 100 Leks, it is actually 1000. Make sure you know what the price of things are before you pay for them.
  • If an Albanian offers you something, don’t reject it, it is considered offensive.
