    I'm impressed by the beauty of Albania and its contrasts, our guide was extraordinary, he made the difference; excellent the accommodation in the farmhouse and the transfers, without an Albanian guide we'd have never made it.

    Particular situation and reality, great to understand the history and culture of a population non as well known as others in Europe. 

  • Daniela G. (Torino, Italy)

    Daniela G. (Torino, Italy)

    Very interesting Country, from an historic, architectonic and cultural point of view, as well as for its culinary traditions; an added value to the tour were the meetings with local people and organizations. 

  • Mario P. (Pisa, Italy)

    Mario P. (Pisa, Italy)

    Beautiful experience.
  • Tiziana C. (Milan, Italy)

    Tiziana C. (Milan, Italy)

    Accommodations and meals were all good, a few more days could be added by the sea or to hike in the inner areas.
  • Barbara M. (Livorno, Italy)

    Barbara M. (Livorno, Italy)

    Very good impressions from the tour, Albania is a really beautiful nation, rich from every point of view: human, naturalistic, cultural. An experience to be repeated (for example the North of the Country).
  • Anna Maria S. (Verona, Italy)

    Anna Maria S. (Verona, Italy)

    Contradictory Country. The excessive economic development is disquieting, maybe caused by the long isolation. Maybe more time is needed to digest a capitalist, democratic system. Much better the small rural communities, that still cultivate local uses and traditions.
  • Franco D. (Latina, Italy)

    Franco D. (Latina, Italy)

    Beautiful travel experience. Interesting Country.
  • Monica V. (Milan, Italy)

    Monica V. (Milan, Italy)

    Albania was a very pleasant surprise, a land rich in really unique natural, historic and cultural heritage. The people that the type of tour allowed us to meet, many of them and of different extractions, were all very kind and passionate about their territory.  

  • Monica V. (Milan, Italy)

    Monica V. (Milan, Italy)

    All meetings with local people were very interesting. The tour leader was very prepared, careful, kind and considerate, passionate about his Country. I really appreciated also the local guides. 

  • Stefano R. (Milan, Italy)

    Stefano R. (Milan, Italy)

    I have a real sight, concrete and vivid sensations of a land known only roughly before. Excellent driver, great accommodation solutions, especially the guesthouses, excellent guide, without any smears, really well prepared the local guides. Maybe the tour deserves a few more days. You leave with the (positive) sensation that there are still more possible explorations. 

  • Nicolò B. (Pisa, Italy)

    Nicolò B. (Pisa, Italy)

    Albania pleasantly surprised me, its a beautiful Country that deserves to be visited and better known, It has had a difficult history but nevertheless very interesting. The coexistence of the different religions should be an example to many countries in the world. 

  • Raffaello J. (Brugherio, Italy)
