Albania Tour Reviews

4.5 - Excellent
Based on 226 customer reviews
Very scenic & nice towns
5 - Excellent

Loved the variety of places we visited and didn't mind the fast paced itinerary as we were able to cover a lot of ground with frequent enough stops along the way and free time in evenings. The scenery is beautiful, the people are warm, friendly and helpful, beers were icy cold (June!), very affordable, and all towns walkable and great for exploring.
Best trip ever!

The trip was fantastic! We had an excellent leader and a very lovely group. Everything went so well. It's a great combination of trekking and leisure within a week for people who want to experience the magnificent mountain scenery as well as the cultural heritage of Albania. I had a great time in Albania!
Authentic Albanian Adventure

If you enjoy cycling on quiet (resurfaced) roads, through dramatic mountain ranges, across high plateaus, following gorgeous river gorges and absorbing cobalt blue views along the coastal riviera, then this might be for you. The mountain air was so still and clean with all the associated quiet of mountain ranges full of distinct bird song, scents and sights of wild flower meadows and herbs. This cycling adventure has it all. The food and accommodation along the way provided authetic organic cuisine in the mountains in a variety of traditional family hotels and cabins. I felt very privileged seeing the beauty Albania has to offer, one can see that as a country and people they are looking to a brighter future having moved on from a difficult recent past. Such a great adventure to be had and I would thoroughly recommend taking the opportunity to explore this beautiful country.

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.
