My name is Johann and I am from Germany living for a short period in Albania. Just to do something different, I booked this tour and it turned out to be a Must-do thing in Tirana. The information provided by the friendly guide about history, culture, food and everyday life is not compared to what you know on your own about Tirana. Highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was so full of local knowledge and history that the tour passed so quickly, he pointed out details and places we wouldn’t even see as tourists that seemed a secret only we knew as we later walked around Tirana, full of tips and knowledge about this fascinating city- totally recommend it to all.

The kindness of the guide and the joy he had speaking about all the city sights. Very professional guide and a very nice city!

Very detailed information about Albanian history and current situation

Eliot was exceptionally engaging. I enjoyed the tour… 😄
