Albania in a week., Albania - Feb 24 - Mar 9, 2019

Traveler: Bruce S. - Local specialist: Xheni Tirana

My partner and I spent 14 wonderful days touring Kosovo and Albania.

This was booked through KimKim Travel. The reason we chose KimKim was that they used a local company to organise the itinerary and the travel details.

Where possible we choose locals, as they have a better understanding of their own territory and hopefully some of our money stays in the country.

Our contact at KimKim was Xheni from Evasion Albanie.

She was fabulous.

We hired a car for the two weeks and that was also arranged by Xheni.

Unfortunately we had an accident in Prizren and under most circumstances this would have been a disaster. However Xheni and the team at Evasion Albanie helped us through and then very quickly arranged for us to get a replacement vehicle in Tirana, our next stop.

As part of the travel arrangements we were given a Sat Nav, local mobile, an extensive touring itinerary and full size country maps.

We had a great adventure and I would recommend KimKim and Evasion Albanie if you are going to tour the Balkans.

I am very sorry about your accident in Prizren, but fortunately it was nothing serious and thanks to God nothing happened to you. In that moment I was very concerned about you and when I spoke with Thea on the phone, she was very kind and I was very glad to hear that you were fine.
Everyday me and my colleagues work to offer the best proposal trips for tourists who plan to visit our beautiful country and all the neighbors’ countries, but we will all remember all the positivity you transmit to us by messages and when meeting you in person.
My only wish is that good words and beautiful impressions travel around the world and that everyone lives here an unforgettable experience.
We thank you very much for all your suggestions, thing that we really appreciate and we will take this in consideration in the future in all the programs we will make for other tourists.
Please let me know how was your whole journey 😊.
I wish you all the best and hope one day your or your family come back and visit again Albania and Kosovo.
Sincerely,
Xheni
