Adrian M.

Tirana, Albania

Hi! You are seeing this profile mainly because I love my country and I really enjoy tour-guiding.

I am an Albanian, born and raised in Tirana, who has lived through the dramatic changes of the Albanian capital in the past 36 years.
Although I have traveled extensively in my adult years, I am always thrilled to come back to my home-city. As the saying goes, "East or West, home is the best".

If you choose to travel Albania with me, you will find out that I am passionate about the stories behind every street or corner, buildings and ruins, old neighborhoods or skyscrapers, traditional cuisine and fancy restaurants.

I am fascinated by the ancient history of my country, enriched by its culture and traditions, challenged by the dynamics and changes, forever in love with its attractions and thrilled to be able to show you around.

I have been working as a full time tour guide since 2008 and it seems like I am going to be doing this for many years to come.
I am confident that Tirana and Albania will surprise you and if you choose to travel with me I will do my best to make your visit unforgettable.

Most beautiful things in life are free, what you pay for is the way to get there.

Miresevini!

A Recent Review of this guide

Adrian is a 5+. He showed us an Albania that we had no idea was there. It is surprisingly interesting, modern and growing quickly to provide an excellent tourist experience. Adrian is a delight. He was very intelligent, knew his history very well and made the complex history of Albania comprehensible.
