First time in Tirana and great guide as a starter at the beginning. I feel very satisfied about Aron's guiding idea and flexibility to adjust in real-time to individual requests of mine and my partner about what we would like to experience in these 3 hours in the capital. Very well educated and talented young journalist who gave us a great image about complexity of Albania and current problem spots. I highly recommend this person.

Aron is a super knowledgeable guide and he is passionate about sharing his knowledge with me. We had a very good conversation which helped me understand the Balkan countries, cultures and religions with a focus on Albania. It’s a very interactive walking tour and you will enjoy it for sure if you are interested in history, culture, geopolitics etc. Besides the tour, he is also super helpful in giving me recommendations about local transportation, things to do/see in Albania etc. Highly recommend it and you will not regret!!

Great walking tour and introduction to Tirana! Our guide spent 4 hours not only showing us around the city but also giving us a brief history of Albania, highlighting what it was like during the years of Communist rule and how the city is now emerging. It was an insightful education for our small group of three.
