Saranda to Split Road Trip - May 24 - Jun 1, 2019

Traveler: Jeff G. - Local specialist: Ed Reeves

This was a fantastic experience and tour … absolutely gorgeous scenery … and very few tourists to compete with. Ed's Drive Albania put together a custom itinerary through 4 countries. Our guide - Ardi - was absolutely fantastic … at the end of the trip we consider him our friend and have invited him to visit us in Florida. Ardi was always making sure we were being taken care of and even modified the itinerary at our request. A very high service level.

We agree with the write-ups that traveling in the Balkan region is safe - we never felt uncomfortable or unsafe … although it did help to have Ardi who spoke all the languages needed and knew the roads very well. We stayed at 2 guest houses which really personalized the experience … and off-roaded for a couple of days in the mountains which was one of the highlights of the adventure. We have a ton of pictures and very fond memories of our Balkan experience.

I would absolutely use Drive Albania again.

Thanks so much, Jeff! We're so glad you enjoyed the tour, and Ardi also had a blast. It's always great for us when travellers appreciate touring the Balkans so much. Hope you're not missing the UAZ too badly... Best, Ed
