What people are saying about Pyramid of Tirana

a nice tour of Tirana, despite not having the guide available in Italian they offered us the possibility of having the audio guide, via headphones, for all the salient points of the walk. The guide was good, the tour was nice with a tasting of Raki, a local drink. Tirana waiting to be discovered.

We had a great tour. It ran a little long but only because our guide packed in as much as possible and told us some great stories. There’s really nothing like meeting a local and learning about their culture from them.
