This trip was amazing. Guide Daniel was professional and smart. However, time management and logistics should be better. I don’t think it’s very comfortable to change pick up time one day before trip from 6:30 to 5:15, moreover we weren’t informed that Meeting point have to be in other place, Mother Teresa Square was closed, the agency should know such information. Trip time should be 10 hour, in fact, the trip lasted 16 hours. We didn't go straight north from Tirana, but had to go through Durres. Same thing on the way back, we didn't go straight to Tirana. Overall: We were very satisfied with the trip.

What an amazing trip!! This is an absolute must if you are in Tirana! The trip was amazing from start to finish. All of the stops were incredibly beautiful. The included lunch was absolutely delicious and Henri was an amazing guide. He was so informative and able to answer any questions we had. He was so friendly and so easy to chat to.
