Full description
After a pick-up from you hotel, drive to the city of Shkoder, the third largest town in Albania, located 95 km north of Tirana. Known for its culture, tradition, and natural beauty, this city offers a diversity that is rarely found in any other city in Albania: with rivers, lakes, lagoons, and mountains which make Shkodra an unforgettable destination in Albania. Built on a rocky hill overlooking the city by the rivers of Buna and Drini, you will find the most important monument of Shkoder: The Castle of Rozafa. After visiting the Castle area you will have the chance to explore the Leaden Mosque and Catholic Church and notice the diverse religious elements and architecture. You will also have the possibility of strolling through the local bazaar of Shkoder, get a glimpse of Albanian traditions, and maybe buy a souvenir.  Optional: lunch with traditional dishes from the region including krap fish which is cooked on a roof tile. Head back to Tirana. End of service.

Iliar (I think that’s the correct spelling) our guide was amazing. Very professional friendly great personality knew a lot about his culture history and the places we were visiting. Very accommodating and efficient with time. He went above and beyond. Offered to take our pictures bought snacks and drinks. It was my birthday and at the restaurant he had the staff surprise with a fruit platter wishing me a happy birthday. We have nothing negative to say. The best guide we had during our entire 3 week trip in Europe. We would definitely recommend him. The excursion itself was very good and what was expected from the description. Amazing views, culture and food.
