Trip review
Albania

loved their trip to Albania

We loved the trip and Albania There were a lot of highlights but here are a few that really stand out Seeing our lunch at a trout farm netted fresh Having the Illyrian ruins of Byllis to ourselves Seeing my daughter drive a 4x4 up a dry river bed Sitting in the garden of my hotel in Berat, looking down on the old town, listening to the pigeons in the owners prized coop Having fresh baked Albanian 'doughnuts' and home made honey in a dirt track side 'cafe' Walking 800m up a deserted canyon, repeatedly crossing the river barefoot, to find a hot spring pool with noone else within sight or earshot

Best parts:
My daughter is leaving home for uni in september and I wanted a mini adventure for the 2 of us to experience and remember together. I certainly got it and it was near-perfect . Before leaving, the tour company were excellent - replying promptly to all our queries and giving informative, amusing and accurate details of the trip. The itinerary was interesting and the tour guide added huge value by adding stops along the way, by choosing interesting and memorable places to stop for lunch or coffee and by introducing us to local people. The hotels chosen were perfectly situated in the cities which, again, added a lot of value. The scenery in Albania is stunning and the off-road driving brought us into this scenery in a way that a road tour never could. The driving was also great fun. The places that we visited were stunning, particularly Berat, Byllis and Butrint and very quiet given how impressive they were
Worst parts:
There was no worst part but the weather could have been better!

Thanks so much for the kind words, Neil! Wish we could have done something about the weather on the penultimate day - truly horrible! Anyway, Ardi really enjoyed showing you south Albania, and will be...Thanks so much for the kind words, Neil! Wish we could have done something about the weather on the penultimate day - truly horrible! Anyway, Ardi really enjoyed showing you south Albania, and will be delighted you've rated his beloved Land Rover Discovery as 'excellent' (probably more so than the 'excellent' rating you've given him)! Glad you enjoyed the trip and we hope to see you again in 2018 for north Albania & Kosovo! Best, EdSee more
