What people are saying about Tirana District
We had a wonderful day with our guide Ilir and our driver Abdullah. On the trip south we took an impromptu detour to see Durrës, and on our arrival in Berat we had detailed tour. We started at the castle, visiting the Orthodox church, the ramparts, and from outside, several churches and a mosque. Ilir was full of information, not only of historical significance, but also referencing life in Albania throughout the 20th century and the past 15 years. Over lunch, we were able to discuss this in greater detail. In the later afternoon, we visited the ethnographic museum and when the clouds opened, we sheltered there from the storm and drank rakia with the museum guide. Finally, we took a short walk along the beautiful riverside. If you are interested in Balkan history, spanning the last 2500 years, and want to see something of the countryside of central Albania, this is an ideal long day tour from Tirana. We were well looked after and made to feel welcome.
Two long days, pickup at my airbnb right on time, with stops for various locations, (castle, fortress, lunch, short walking tour of Tirana. Amir took my interests into consideration, provided historical reference to two small museums, was proud to talk about Albania. I was the sole tourist on this particular tour, and asked a lot of questions about the region, historical reference to the conflicts, etc. A couple locations required walking up a short hill with stone pathways, so care should be considered if you have walking difficulties.
The tour of the National History Museum, which takes about an hour, is very informative, albeit that it only really scratches the surface. As the exhibits have very clear English explanations, it would be well worth spending more time on one's own. Most of the important sites are within close proximity of Skanderbeg Square,but the walking tour is still worth doing for the explanations and to enable one to get one's bearings.
The Company fee was a bit High. Our tourguide(driver) was informative about the area and Albania in generel. He was caring about us, and showed all That could be interesting for us. We stopped at nice places, to rest and walk.
We had a great trip to Berat from Tirana. Our guide, Ilir, was extremely knowable about the city and Albania in general and was very personable and helpful.
