Despite the bad weather forecast we decided not to cancel our trip to Theth. It was definitely worth it. We missed the nice views and walk to the waterfall due to rain and a lot of snow, but had a very good day and different experience! Taulant was our guide and he did a wonderful job. He is very professional and gave us a lot of information about Albania. We felt very safe and in good hands with him. Thank you Taulant! Gezim gave us good and clear communication in advance and the day before the trip. Definitely recommended.

Our guide, Valter, drove impeccably throughout the long journey (which is a bit challenging to do alone). He was at our disposal at all times and guided us along the paths to the natural wonders of theth national park ... two days are very few but if your time is limited this package is for you!

Amazing! The trip was a very nice change from the city trip to Tirana. Two days completely in nature with two fairly easy but beautiful walks in a beautiful environment. The guide was nice, a good driver and spoke good English.

We had a great guide, Riges. He took care of every detail and made the experience just wonderful. He was a great driver, answered every question and took as to awesome places. Totally recomend it

Eri spoke good English and was very friendly and very flexible! He had good knowledge of all the places we visited including the castles on our way back from Theth to Tirana.
