This tour was awesome. A couple hour stroll through the streets of Tirana followed by a sit down taste of Qofte and Raki. Our guide was so nice and she answers all my questions. Such an awesome way to spend the afternoon in this gorgeous city!

Excellent tour! Great food, even better history lessons! Excellent to walk around the city and hear and taste from a local. Would recommend even in the pouring rain we had - thank you Erald!

Just a shame, for those who only speak Italian they are forced to use the audio guide, and it's not the same. Anyway, congratulations to Franky who tried to explain more things to us.

Very detailed information about Albanian history and current situation

I recommend this guide! Very nice and superb excursion!
