Cultural, Archaeological Heritage and wonders of Nature all together in a Private Tour!

Saranda is a city with more than 2000 years of history, located in the southern coastal area of Albania the city is rich in rare value of cultural and archaeological heritage, both Albanian and European. This rich archaeological heritage intertwined with the beauties of nature, and its natural amphitheatre looking construction constitutes the most important factors to promote the development of the current image of Saranda, as a tourism destination of the classical world, and also to attract an increasing number of visitors every year.


After a convenient pickup, board a comfortable vehicle and we start our tour with a bit of city exploration.

On our way to the ancient site of Butrint our first stop will be at the 14th century Saint George Monastery located in a very narrow strip land that divides Butrinti Lake from the Ionian Sea. Right after that we head to Ksamil where we get to enjoy an amazing panorama that sea, sun and islands offer, the perfect spot for sightseeing and profile photos.

Than we enter the National Park of Butrint, we examine the impressive remains of a Roman theatre, travel along a historical route that shows you a temple, an ancient fitness center with public baths, an aqueduct, and a Byzantine church with one of a kind well preserved baptistery. We shall end this route with views of a hilltop castle from the Venetian period.

After spending at least a couple of hours in Buthrotum we take our way back to the next destination, the Lekuresi Castle.

Our last and most relaxing destination is the Blue Eye spring.

A Recent Review of this tour

Edvin was a great tour guide. He took us four different places and gave wonderful commentary on ancient history as well as current history. We knew nothing about Albania and now we feel very well acquainted with it. Eddie was great and would highly recommend his as a guide.
