Tirana was such an incredible and inspiring stop on my journey, but it wouldn’t have been so without the guidance of this magical human. Ilir. I spent several days with Ilir on various adventures. His knowledge is beyond, both in the rich history of the region but in matters of life as well. He is so special and I’m happy to call him a friend after this chance encounter. This is not just a 5 star rating, it’s a 10. Go and visit Tirana, but see all the other beautiful offerings of this beautiful country.

Shkodra city is an important cultural and economical center of Albania. Shkodra is also known as the center of the Albanian Catholicism and a perfect proof of the fact that all different religions can adjoin in one country. The city was founded in the 4th century B.C. and for a long time had an important protecting role, it protected the trade routes on the rivers of Drin and Buna. It became the capital of Illyria in the 3d century B.C. Than it was conquered by the Romans and than was a part of the medieval Serbian principality till it was gained by the Turks in 1479. The main sight-seeing place in Shkoder is the castle of Rozafa, which was built in the 3d century B.C. Shkoder is truly the soul of Albania with its narrow street and ancient houses that are united with stone walls and modern buildings. It is the place worth visiting to feel the real Albania.

I can't thank our tour guide Adam enough for giving us a fun filled day from start to finish. If you are lucky enough to get him as your tour guide you will agree with me that he is one interesting man on this planet! He went above and beyond, even making additional pit stops. He showed us so much in one day that would of easily taken us two to three days to do. The tour exceeded my expectations. I can't wait to do future day trips in other countries/cities with Albanian Express Travel and Adam!

Our day trip to Berat was unfortunately on our last day in Albania. If we had more time we would have stayed in Berat. It's a beautiful place with so much to see and do! Our guide Ida spoke great English and was extremely knowledgable about Berat and its history. Her passionate love of her country made her a great guide. She picked us up from Rinas and safely drove us to Berat and back and walked all around Berat with us. She had a good relationship with the people who worked in the museums so they would walk with us and answer specific questions. We enjoyed a great meal of local food and drink at a lovely restaurant Ida selected for us all at the end of our exploring. This was much better than a scripted tour. We got a deep understanding of the place and felt like we made a new friend. I was extremely impressed.

Booked the tour last minute with Aria Travel and it was a great experience. My guide Gavi is very knowledgeable about the history and communicated it well. We started out early and had a little break at Belsh. I got to try the mountain tea. After the short break, we continued to Berat. It was lovely to see the Castle, the modern town, the Gori bridge and go up to houses to see how they were built in stacks. He recommended having lunch in Hotel Mangalemi. Good recommendation. The food was good and ok for the price. We left Berat and got to Apollonia before Sunset. He also presented the history of the Apollonia ruins and the church located inside. We left just at sunset. I definitely enjoyed the experience and went further to book more tours with Aria Travels.
