We had a wonderful tour to Berat and Çobo Winery with Adrian. He is full of knowledge about Albania, its history and the places we traveled through. You can really tell that he he has a passion for Albania and tour-guiding. Even though he does tour all summer, he really made us feel special. It was great to spend a day with Adrian, wish we had time for more! Perfect guide. Hopefully we will be back for more tours in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Annette and David! Thank you for taking the time to write the review. It was a pleasure for me to have the chance to show you Berat and a little if Albania. I wish you best of luck in life and really hope to have you back in Albania. Kind regards, Adrian

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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ellen and Peter! It was a delight to be with you and to be able to introduce Albania to seasoned travelleres such as yourselves with deep knowledge and genuine interest. Thank you for you visit in Albania! Best regards, Adrian

Adrian Mitrovasili was an exceptional guide. He is extremely personable, and his English is excellent, far better than most Americans'. He is knowledgeable and made our visit to Kruje and Durres an interesting and educational experience. We recommend him very highly to anyone interested in visiting Albania!

William WagnerColumbus, OH, United States
This was my second tour with Adrian and it was just as enjoyable as the first. First we visited the Blue Eye followed by a tour of Gjirokastra and lunch at a nice family restaurant. Afterwards, we drove over the mountains on a beautiful twisting and turning road to Korce with a stop in idyllic Permet for coffee. Adrian is a skilled driver, speaks perfect English, and knows the history of Albania inside and out. You won't be disappointed with him as your guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William! I appreciate your comments, thank you for writing the review! It was a pleasure to drive around Albania together and visit memorable sites. I am especially grateful for your appreciation of the country and your eager desire to learn more about Albania and the Albanians. I wish you all the best in life and great adventures around the globe. Best regards, Adrian
William WagnerColumbus, OH, United States
Adrian is a wonderful guide. He has a wealth of knowledge about Albania and is a pleasant person to spend the day with. I booked the Berat tour but asked Adrian if he could drive me to Saranda instead of taking me back to Tirana. He was more than happy to do this! Berat was amazing as was the wine-tasting at Cobo Winery. I highly recommend Adrian and am looking forward to my next tour with him!
Brian V.United States
I & 3 family members spent a full day with Adrian on a Tirana City Tour. Adrian planned the best itinerary, making sure we saw all the key sites in the city. Adrian was professional & courteous at all times and shared his vast knowledge of Tirana & Albania with us throughout the day. We never felt rushed and Adrian made sure we saw all that Tirana has to offer. With only one day in Tirana, we would not have seen & learned all that we did if on our own. I highly recommend Adrian for touring in Tirana!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Brian, Thank you for the review and rating. It was a pleasure to be with you and your family in this tour of Tirana. I wish you all the best in life and many adventures around the world. Best regards to all if you! Adrian
Adrian is an exceptional guide, I wish ToursByLocals would have more such dedicated and knowledgeable people. He is very enthusiastic, and he knows a lot, and also he loves his job and his country. He included for me a visit to Bunker'Art and I believe this should be a pat of the city tour because this is a remarkable place you would never see anywhere else. And well done and presented--an unknown history of the nation. Adrian made this trip super-memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Yuri, Thank you for taking the time to rate my service. I am happy that you have enjoyed the tour and the country. Thank you also for your recommendations. Best regards!
Nigel McFarlaneIsle of Man
I would highly recommend Adrian. He was courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and obliging. I have been on a number of city tours (none by ToursByLocals!) and none of them compare even remotely. Often, travel to and from the airport can be an issue in certain cities but I did not have such worries in Tirana as this was part of the tour. Adrian was waiting for us when we arrived and collected us from the hotel precisely when he said that he would. Adrian met and far exceeded expectations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to rate my service. It was a pleasure to offer the tour. I wish you all the best in life and in your travels!
George LernerUnited States
Adrian is the best tour guide I think I have ever been with. He knows a great deal about his subject, he patient, his English is actually just as good as anyone who would be an academic from Albania working in the UK or America. So, that is to say, he speaks perfect English with a refined and educated vocabulary necessary to have serious discussion about the things you're viewing. Above all, Adrian is a great guy to spend the day with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the review, I really appreciate your comment. Thank you for visiting Albania, I wish you all the best and amazing adventures around the world!
Christine GarciaUnited States
Adrian was an excellent guide who was knowledgeable, flexible and personable. We toured Tirana, Kruje, and Durres. He gave us an appreciation for Albania's history and current situation, showed us more than we expected. Be sure to book a tour with him.
Adrian spent two days with us in Albania. Being a local person she picked the most important sights and gave all the detailed information we asked about. No matter if it was about geography, history, culture or daily life - it could not be better!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to rate me service. It was a great pleasure to guide you in Albania.
Teresa PeterfesoUnited States
Adrian led me on a great walking tour around the city center and through the National History Museum. He is extremely knowledgeable, polite and professional. This was a great way to see Tirana and learn about the Albanian culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Teri for writing the review. It was a great pleasure to show you around Tirana. I am glad you enjoyed the tour. Wish you all the best in life and all success in your endeavors! Kind regards, Adrian.
Sandra SimpsonUnited States
Adrian is a gem. He is so enthusiastic about his country and making sure that his guest knows as much as possible about Albania's history. Any questions that I had were always answered. His command of the English language is excellent. Being a senior citizen, I have issues with steps. Adrian was always there to assist me in maneuvering the rocky steps and walkways. He is a gentlemen. I wish I had more than 3 full days of touring with Adrian. There are so many beautiful things to see in Albania.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandra, I am so happy to hear that you had a good time in Albania. I thank you and really appreciate it that you took the time to write the review. I wish you all the best in life and really hope to see you back in Albania. Kind regards, Adrian
Chris ClarkUnited Kingdom
Our guide Adrain was excellent. Everything we could have hoped for - very helpful, knowledgable, friendly, great recommendations for food and drink, willing to help us, tailored the tour to what we were most interested in. Mades a very good Albanian holiday great. Would recommend without hesitation - and this is from someone who rarely takes tours and mainly travels independently. Thank you

Party of 2 senior ladies who went to Berat with Adrian. He was articulate, helpful, thoughtful and attentive from start to finish. He spoke fluent English with no topic off-limits. He went above and beyond to provide the best experience possible by including a last minute side trip to the ruins of Durres. His knowledge of Albanian history, his fun spirit, his personable demeanor enhanced our learning experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy that you have enjoyed this Albanian experience. I wish you all the best and many wonderful experiences around the world. Thank you for your comments! Kind regards, Adrian

I can discuss with him any topics about Albania, history, archaeology, current affairs , social or other issues related to his native land.

Adrian was the perfect guide. He met me right at the bus station, took me to my hotel and customized the perfect tour for me. His English and knowledge of Albanian history were both flawless. He gave me insight and attention I could never hope to receive from any other tour. I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jim! I greatly appreciate your kind words and especially your interest in my country. I wish you safe and pleasant adventures around the world. Hope to see you back in Albania. Kind regards, Adrian
