This was a really interesting tour and a really interesting city. It's not at all what I expected. Kliti was a great guide who provided a real understanding of what life was like 40 - 50 years ago, and how the city and its people have evolved. Tirana is actually quite charming, with good museums and restaurants. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone considering visiting Tirana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot , David! It was my pleasure to be your guide.
Great option if you have only a short time in Albania - two towns in one day. Tour guide very knowledgeable and friendly. Flexible timings made it a really convenient tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Charles!

We spent the day with Kliti and had a really good 6 hour tour of Tirana. He was receptive and adjusted the tour to suit our interests and priorities. He collected us from our hotel at the agreed time and was very knowledgeable. He looked after us and we would certainly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for the nice feedback. I think the 4* rating must have been a mistake after reading the feedback! Wish you all the best!
This was our second tour with Kliti - it was amazing ! Kliti showed up early as usual at our hotel and off we went to Kruja/ Durres. Kliti really shines when it comes to historical knowledge so every museum comes alive- magical! He was discreet enough to hang back while we shopped in Kruja bazaar and made sure we got a good price! Again, my weird request for photos of the George W Bush statue in Lower Kruja was made to happen. Durres was wonderful including drinks by the water. Kliti made Albania for us!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Niall! It was also for me a real pleasure to have the possibility to show you my city and part of my country! Best wishes and regards to both of you!
Kliti represents all the best of Albania: warm-hearted, flexible, kind, knowledgeable and determined to do everything possible to extract every minute of enjoyment out of your holiday. All my requests for weird stuff: Enver Hoxha's grave, old communist statues, bunkermania...all were prioritised by Klitii and made to happen. He is very well informed (his museum tour alone - wow!). His car (a Jeep) is beautiful - safety is his first concern always. A must for Albania! Got to be Kliti!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you !!! Guests like you is a pleasure to have!

We are a trio of elderly Brits who are slowly, year by year, touring the less well known parts of Europe. We spent about a week in Albania in mid October on a custom tour. Appreciation of that wonderful country was helped by the most glorious weather but the trip was "made" by Kliti. He is one of a kind. Worth every one of the 5 stars we give him. Kliti is a wonderful ambassador for Tours by Locals. Superlatives fail. If we return to Albania, and we might, there will be only one place to go.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was also for me a great pleasure to be your guide on our drive through the Balkans!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Ray! It was also for me pleasure to guide you and your group. Best wishes to you and all the members of your group!

Our tour from Albania to Macedonia and Kosovo with Kliti was awesome! Kliti is one of the best, and truly in his element as a guide. Very safe driver, made sure we saw all that we wanted, and even made sure we got passport stamps! I would recommend Kliti to anyone and everyone looking to visit Albania. He is very knowledgeable and welcoming and we felt right at home. He is friendly and funny which made the car rides go quickly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Karin! It was my pleasure and am really glad you enjoyed the trip! Best regards and wishes to both of you!

Kliti was a terrific guide. He was prompt, very knowledgeable about Albania and surrounding countries, and truly cared about providing us with a memorable and special day. He is a really nice guy who really cares about his family and his customers. He is also quite funny. We had many laughs and even had a "carpool karaoke" moment. Thanks Kliti, for a tour we will long remember.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Alan and Alison! It was a real pleasure to be your guide! Best wishes to you, Kliti
Kliti is an excellent guide. He is very helpful and goes above and beyond what you see in the itinerary. He is very knowledgeable and have interesting stories of Albania from its long history to the unique period that he lived through during the communist times. He is an honest guide that you can trust.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Bonnie! It was a great pleasure to guide you, John and the sweet children you have! Best wishes for your beautiful family!

We drove through Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia and Bulgaria. Kliti has vast knowledge of the area both historically and currently. He is open to share his knowledge of many points of view, and I felt completely comfortable discussing problems faced by the many ethnic groups and the (it seems) capricious location of the borders. The tour was amazing. The sites he picked were well worth the visit. And Kliti was a great guide. He was very accommodating, and genial, and his German is fluent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Davis! it was a great tour also for me. It's a real pleasure to have clients like you! Best wishes, Kliti!

Kliti was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about Albanian history, culture and religion. He was flexible in the schedule and site seeing and we had a great time in the process. I laughed all day. Highly recommend a tour with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Maureen! It was also for me a beautiful day being your guide in Tirana! Best wishes!
A 'tour by a local' in Albania is a must! We only had a few days to travel and we wanted to get the most of it. Our guide was personable, spoke excellent English and was extremely knowledgeable and informative. He was also very flexible and understood our needs. We wanted to learn about Albania and thanks to this guide we did. We visited the historic city of Berat, headed down the Albanian Rivera soaking in the sunshine, amazing landscape and breath taking views as well as sampling the best local food.

Sue HarveyUnited States
Kliti was an amazing guide. Had us figured out pretty quickly about the sights we would be interested in seeing. His recommendations for hotels and restaurants were perfect. I so appreciate that he stopped whenever I wanted a photo and even got a donkey driver to let me drive a cart. Can't imagine how our tour of Albania could have been better. He is so knowledgeable about history, dates and politics that we both thorouly enjoyed.

We took a 7 hour day tour from Durres (cruise ship terminal). Kliti was friendly, very informative and professional. He has excellent English skills and provided a clean comfortable mini bus. We visited Kruja and Tirana and we learnt and saw a lot. We highly recommend the services of Kliti. We had a wonderful day, cannot wait to go back. Thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Louise. You were very helpful and your group just great. Hope to meet you again. Best wishes to you and Brian, also best regards to all the group. Kliti
A perfect guide, very gentle, knowledgeable, adapting willingly to your requirements. I highly recommend Kliti as a guide in order to make the most of a visit to Albania.

If you want to see something more of Albania I really recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mr. Aavik! It was also for me a pleasure to be your guide! Best regards, Kliti Z.
I was impressed with Kliti for his prompt response on all our questions regarding the tour. At the last minute, he was not able to make it to be our guide but he send his colleague. His colleague Dorian was excellent. So the 5 star rating is really for him. Very knowledgeable and accommodating to our last minutes changes to the itinerary. He even took us to a very special Albanian lunch. All 11 of us were very pleased and enjoyed every minute of our day in Albania.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your understanding, I was sure that Dorian was going to be excellent, :-)! Thanks from both of us!
