It was amazing day just for 25 euros per person. Captain Spyros took us from Agios Gordios and drived us to Gouvia by his car telling nice stories about villages we passed. The boat was big and nice and Spyros was the best part of it. He was joking, singins, dancing, talking to everyone and making food. The food was very tasty, and free coffe, biscuits and free wine all the day. The three places we stopped were very nice especially this wild beahh near the lake.

This was truly a beautiful day out. After being cooped up due to lock-down, I knew I was in dire need of nature, and the natural hot springs were just the ticket to ease my mind, and bring my entire body to a state of relaxation. My tour guide spoke English beautifully, and was a great leader throughout the journey. In fact, all of the staff at Tea Tours was lovely, and their office is also home to a nice Souvenir Shop, where you can find English books, maps and other goodies.

Alban has the best car rentals in Saranda. We have now rented a car for two different day trips and both times we were very happy with the service and the car. Today's trip to the Blue Eye was perfect.

Experience private, tailor-made tour with authentic local flavour. Saranda is a little town with a lovely horseshoe bay and a perfect climate, averaging around 290 sunny days a year. Ksamili, this hidden gem is located on the Albanian Riviera, and it sure is one of the best beach destinations in Europe. Once there, you can enjoy Paradise beaches offering white sand and crystal clear water. It is almost impossible not to like Butrint. The site is so complex, with remains dating from different periods covering 2500 years that everyone is sure to find something which they will remember forever. Even if you are not interested in archaeology, you will enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, the scent of eucalyptus and other trees among the ruins. The Blue Eye is an unusual underwater spring where the clear blue water of the river bubbles forth from a stunning, more than fifty-meter-deep pool. Castle of Lekuresi which dates back to the 16th century features imposing round towers and sweeping views.

Inclusions: Air-conditioned vehicle, Private transportation, WiFi on board, Snacks, Bottled water

Exclusions: Personal Expenses, Gratuities

History buff hubby and I booked a custom tour. Our guide was amazing. She stuck through us making long videos, hiking, long drives and rain. She was so interested in history and really helped with information for his history videos. We went to gjorkastra, Antigonea and the thermal baths all in one day. With my husband's love for history this probably needed two days. However our guide was always enthusiastic and a real trooper. The driver drove flawlessly though heavy rain and dark. Not to mention lunch/dinner at a local spot was fantastic. I'd highly recommend the guides are fun and professional. This is the second time we've used this company. First was a transfer from triana to sarande also great experience. Thank you so so much for your long hours and patience. Vanessa and Ray

Albania is a wonderful country. People are so welcoming, we felt so comfortable. Our excellent local guide Ari told us a lot about the culture and amazing history of this small country. Most exciting was one of our drives through the beautiful and spectacular Albanian Riviera. Albanian traditional food was extremely delicious and the place we were accommodated was pretty cool. I would really suggest this 3days tour if you want to enjoy your holidays in South of Albania. P.s Well done Ari and thanks for the beautiful photos.
