Albania Highlights - Jun 19 - Jun 21, 2018

Traveler: Chris R. - Local specialist: Ed Reeves

Ed Reeves provides a very unique, custom service. We enjoyed 3 private day trips from Tirana with Ed or Nesti, one of his excellent Albanian guides. Ed’s 4 wheel drive vehicles allow you to access the “real” Albania. Day 1 we visited Durres and then on to a little known beach and a fabulous seafood lunch right overlooking the sea. Day 2 took us to the historic Greek / Roman site of Apolonia, but then on to the lesser known, and less accessible Bylis (which we had to ourselves) and also the magical Ottoman city of Berat where we had a fabulous tasting meal of local Albanian dishes. Day 3 took us to stunning mountain scenery and we had the chance to hike through pristine landscapes. Our meal of lamb at a local hostelry was mouthwatering! Ed provides adventure, exceptional local experiences and the chance to reach remote and unspoiled parts of Albania. Highly recommend if you are looking to discover the lesser travelled places in this fascinating country that is only just opening up to tourism.

Hi Chris,

Thanks so much for the kind words! Can't believe you packed so much into three day trips from Tirana. We'll pass on you comments about Hajdar's slow-cooked lamb - he'll be really pleased.

Shame you had such a brief time in Albania, but we hope one day you'll be back to explore properly!
