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.

This 7 day tour aims to present Albanian cities/sites and objects, which fall under UNESCO protection. Albania counts several cities and objects that are part of our cultural heritage, so the value of this particular tour is of great cultural and archaeological importance. During the 7 day tour, you will explore the fabulous town of Berat (known as the city of the THOUSAND AND ONE WINDOWS), and Gjirokastra, the stone town that still fanatically fosters the tradition and culture of the country. You will also explore the ancient city of Butrint, which was proclaimed a museum in 1961, and in 1992 entered under the protection of UNESCO; The Blue Eye Natural Park; the fascinating old village of Qeparo, and enjoy free time on the lovely Himara beaches. Further on, you visit Përmet (known as the City of Roses), and we'll pass by Tepelena, with a visit of Ali Pasha Tepelena Castle.

Upon arriving to Saranda I knew I wanted to see more of the other locations outside of the general area. So, in loving the fine folks at Tea Tours, I opted to take a tour to Qeparo and Himara. I mean, you can't go wrong. An ancient village, reminiscent of what some movies are made of and the beautiful beach in Himara to enjoy after perusing Qeparo. And, Qeparo itself, set upon the top of a mountain, truly has some incredible photo opportunities to discover and capture. And the village, while barely inhabited by the locals, also has many opportunities to snap a great architectural photo. I do hope to tour a little more with Tea Tours, as everyone there is truly helpful, and kind. And, the guide, fantastic!

My tour with Good Albania was delightful as it gave me an opportunity to explore the UNESCO heritage sites and indulge in the nation's wonderful cuisine. Originally, I was supposed to join one other person for the tour, but that individual had to cancel suddenly. So I ended up on a private tour and could adjust the pace of my journey as things unfolded. My guide Migert was easygoing and attentive to my needs, helping me get antihistamines when I experienced an allergic reaction and mailing my postcards near the end of my trip. The food throughout the trip was delicious, and the portions were so large that on most nights, I felt too full to eat anything for supper. The local guides throughout the trip were also informative and friendly, and meeting a local family in a mountain village was another highlight of the experience. Overall, the Good Albania team was courteous throughout my booking process and created an enjoyable and comprehensive tour. Thank you Good Albania! I hope to join you again for another tour in the future. I recommend that others stay another day in Tirana to enjoy more of the history of the city as I had to leave sooner than I had originally hoped.
