A tour of pleasant highlights, historical sites, ancient ruins, Byzantine Churches, Old Mosques and breathtaking landscapes


Albania is a fascinating, little known Mediterranean country situated in the southeastern Europe with an incredible history set impressively against a wild and rugged landscape. Past civilizations have each left their mark, mainly the Romans and Byzantines, which we see in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Butrint and the famous Berat Fortress, but the real highlight is the warm hospitality received all over this wonderfully undiscovered country. Albania has made tremendous progress in the last twenty years and is moving smartly towards its European home . Albania is a "new tourism destination" from an unfavorable past… All visitors who knew of Albania 20 years ago should embrace the new Albania. The Albanian people today are not the old "backwards" few of Eastern Europe. So relax, learn the splendor of this emerging nation, and spread the greatness of this hidden tourism gem!

Itinerary

We will start our tour in Albania exploring Tirana the capital of Albania, and continue to Kruja, the town symbol of the Albanian's will for freedom. Next is going to be the UNESCO World Heritage town of Berat and then straight to, Vlore. Vlora also reflects the stern struggle of the Albanians for freedom and independence, it was in this town that Albania was proclaimed an independent and free country. We go on exploring and being astounded from the breathtaking landscape of Albanian Riviera through our trip to Saranda. Butrinti Archaeological park, also an UNESCO World Heritage site, is part of our tour in the south this combined with the wonderful nature of the Blue eye springs and also several old religious sites and buildings . On our way back to capital we shall visit the town of Gjirokaster and its famous castle and bazaar.

Edwin is a true professional. He feels and live his country and give wide and sufficient information and personal perspective about beautiful and amazing character. Edwin knows how to "read" his client according to his preferences and his situation (like mine, traveling with 2 young kids). He took care of us and helped planning the tour well in advance, answered all my questions and doubts, looked after us for every single thing and didn't leave us till he was sure we were pleased and enjoyed his country.
