This full day tour will encompass over 2500 years of Albanian history and regional development, as we travel from Durres to the Apollonia Archaeological Park, and to the Ardenica Monastery. We begin our tour by driving towards Albania's second largest town, the port city of Durres. Founded around the 7th century BC, Durres also known as Dyrrachium, became an integral part of the Roman Empire, so much so that the Via Egnatia initiated in this city. Following the Albanian Declaration of Independence in 1912, Durres even served as the capital of the Principality of Albania for a short period of time.

Illir was a wonderful guide. Clearly very knowledgeable about the sites we visited, but was also very willing to discuss any other aspects of Albania, its history, and its country. He was a marvelous driver and got us to our destinations in adequate time and was flexible with my schedule and requests as well. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who is seriously interested in history, because this tour hits many important sites.

Really great day. Our guide Christian was really accommodating and put in a brief detour for lunch so I could taste good Albania wine. You see a lot in a full day though u am not sure what could be improved as you get to see all the highlights. The guide was informative and it was a real eye opener into Albania I would recommend it.

I enjoyed this tour very much, our tour guide was friendly, flexible and knowledgeable. This is a great way to see a few lovely spots in Albania :)

Amazing trip. Beautiful places. And best of all, no crowds. My guide Xhulio did an amazing job. Highly recommended.

Excellent day, and Arjan was a superb guide with vast knowledge of the area. A true credit to your company.
