Wow wow and thank you this tour exceeded our expectations. To be met by driver and guide who made us feel like we were spending the day with friends exploring truley amazing sites. Thank you for your hospitality and showing and share your beautiful country and sites with us. I will only ever book ToursByLocals when I travel again it was a stress free and amazing experience! This was one of the shore excursions that I will treasure long into my old age thank you both from Arthur and Nats!
Resi organised for us a private tour and we are super happy! We arrived in Saranda with a cruise ship. Resi was waiting for us with an experienced driver and baby chair. We visited a castle with fantastic view, the Blue Eye and Ksamil beach. Resi was able to address any concern we had, including an emergency shopping! Just ask her! Have cash in EUR before arriving. You can pay everywhere in EUR cash but shops do not accept credit cards. Withdrawing is very expensive (6 EUR) plus bad exchange rate.
My husband, myself and our three small children had Edvin as our guide and really enjoyed our day. We were only able to do a half day tour due to the available ferry schedule, but he was able to accommodate our timeline. His driver was very kind and tended to our kids in a sweet way, helping buckle car seats, zip coats, keep them safe, etc. Having the company provide a car seat was also helpful. The tour was informative and easy to book, Resma was quick to respond to emails and very kind.

Our guide, Resma, was incredible! She was very knowledgeable and interesting. She also went above and beyond to accommodate our desires and complicated issues. One of our group had really bad knees and could barely get around and she was very helpful and considerate with her limits. I would highly recommend Resha to anyone coming into Sarande!
Resma was a great guide, listening to our needs and answering our questions in the best possible way, and the driver was great too. We recommend Resma to anyone eager to learn more about Albania.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Catherine for your nice words , you are always welcomed, all the best to you and your lovely family!! Best of luck to you too!!
Resma greeted us warmly with a traditional 'pie ' to start our day's tour of Sarande and Butrint. We had a very pleasant day with Resma and the driver seeing the countryside as well as visiting the archaeological site. She was considerate and helpful. Judth M.
Resme is a lovely guide. She is pleasant, informative and passionate about her country. On arrival Resme brought local treats or us to try, a thoughtful gesture. We enjoyed her tour, her company and her sense of humour. I highly recommend Resme for your tour of Sarande.
This tour was the highlight of our trip. Eddy made it personal; it was like we were family. Knowledgeable, patient and flexible - we could not ask for more from our tour guide. If you are on this tour, have Eddy take you to the fishing village with the beach and the cafe - truly God' country and great coffee. He also provided us with a snack, which was a full mean and very delicious.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sepy thank you very much for your kind words , I enjoyed the same with you and your family the whole day. Your men (husband and sons) should know that they are very lucky to have a wise and strong person like you to be there all the time for them. I am very glad that I managed to be at the height of your expectations and offered you a decent presentation of my country. All the best to you and your family Sepy!!

Resma went out of her way to provide an amazing trip for our very diverse group. I originally queried Edvin, who was busy the day we were in, but he worked to set up Resma for our tour. We had 9 people, from a 7 year old to several in their 80s and one wheelchair. Resma and Edi made our stay in Albaina one to remember!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Eric , we are the ones to thank you for all your very nice words. I did my best but there is always room for improve and you are very right on every word you say. I had to be more careful regarding the narration in some cases when not everybody was as close as they couldn’t miss the point. Being a big group is not an excuse for me but your review motivates me to improve and make things even better for future guests. Eric thank you for everything ,I wish all the best to you and your lovely family!!
