    Our tour of Albania was fantastic. The accomodation was great, a mixture of traditional b&bs and lovely moden hotels. In Sarande we has awesome water views from our balcony and in Girocaster we had a beautiful room in an Ottoman house. Albania is an amazing g place with lots of history, great food and magestic scenery. Everyone should include Albania on their bucket list. All this being said, our tour was stepped up a notch by our wonderful guide, Vaso. His knowledge of history and politics for one so young was astounding. He and our driver Kali made sure we were looked after well with lots of treats along the way. You will not be sorry if you book a tour of Albania with Albania TravelNet.

    Hello ! I have just returned from a Discover Albania tour organised by Enea at Albania Travelnet. The tour took 9 days and we visited the main Albanian archaeological sites and traditional towns and historical castles , travelling over 1000 miles. Albania is full of beauty, history and many surprises ! The political history is particularly interesting and i learnt a great deal about Communism and Dictatorship. The tour was brilliant . A mix of modern and traditional hotels all comfortable. Enea is a wealth of information and historical date and facts. He is also a very calm and careful driver on some quite challenging roads . I would definitely recommend Albania Travelnet and Enea can tailor the tour to your needs.

    Although my husband and I travelled with Albania TravelNet in May, it has taken me until now (August!) to process all of the experiences we had with them in Albania, Macedonia and Kosovo. John and I are in our late fifties. We're avid hikers, musicians, foodies, politics and history fact seekers, readers, and general students of the world. Our guide, "Enea", was extremely knowledgable, patient and conscientious. He's a great driver, and a cool head when some political unrest in Macedonia threatened to usurp our agenda. All of the accommodations chosen for us were absolutely clean, comfortable, and they were extremely varied, which we appreciated. The restaurants we ate in were great: delicious food, clean facilities, and good places to sit, relax, talk and plan the next day's agenda. I can't imagine having done this trip without using Albania Travelnet, we would have missed so much. This is a beautiful part of the world: I would encourage everyone to make this trip, and use this company. I have a feeling we'll be comparing our future travel experiences to Albania Travel from now on. I can't think of one thing that would have made the trip better. Patti Loach, Toronto

    We have traveled to Albania twice, and Albania TravelNet has done an amazing job both times. They are an amazing travel agency, very professional, making sure that the experience of discovering Albania is enjoyable. The Drivers and Tourist Guide are excellent, making you feel safe and at the same time you learn Albanian Culture. We are planning our third visit and definitely will hire Albania TravelNet to be our tourist agency. Highly recommended for anyone traveling and experiencing Albania! A+++ (make sure you bring your photo camera charged!!!!)

    Me and my wife traveled with Albania Travelnet on Dicovering Albania Tour on May. We found this tour while google searching for a tour of Albania and we were really surprised with the value for money of this tour offered, considering that this was a small group of 5 people, so it was like being on a semi private tour with our own tour guide. The accommodations were we stayed were very good and we really liked the traditional accommodations in Berat, Gjirokastra and Shkodra. All breakfasts were included and we had nice meals in traditional restaurant but we would prefer the meals to be included in the price. Overall it was a very informative and well organised tour.

    We took the Discover Albania Tour with Albania Travel-Net and had such an amazing time. We saw truly exceptional archaeological sites including the UNESCO site of Butrint which is in a stunning setting, it is like stepping back in time. We were lucky enough to be there while the frescos were exposed and they were beyond description. We also visited the UNESCO sites of the historic centers of Berat and Gjirokastra, two astonishingly lovely historical cities that rival the beauty and charm of any European town that I have seen. Enea even took us on a tour of the cold war tunnel and complex beneath Gjirokastra, it sent chills down our spines. Both of these cities are not to be missed. Berat is possibly my favorite little town in all of Europe and we stayed in the most amazing guest house that I have ever been lucky enough to visit, Bujtina Kodiket. Vasilika, the owner, is a lovely host and she took very good care of us. It was my birthday while we were there and she prepared a very special dinner that I will never forget. It is my favorite guest house in all of Europe! We also visited the picturesque coast. I highly recommend a swim and lunch at the Caribbean like beach of ksamil. A stroll along the promenade in the vibrant town of Saranda is a lot of fun. And my personal favorite stop on the coast is the unspoiled beach resort of Dhermi, it is the perfect spot to have a terrific meal at the restaurant Del Mare and swim in the warm, clear waters, I could have stayed there for a few weeks. Enea was very easy going, informative and open minded and he tailored the tour to fit in whatever we wanted to do when time allowed. We were able to visit an olive oil processing facility and buy some freshly pressed olive oil and to visit a winery for a tasting. Beside the natural beauty of Albania and her friendly people, the food is absolutely delicious and every meal was a delight. The wine and Raki are also not to be missed. Enea and Albania-TravelNet made our trip so special and personal that we all talk about it very often and want to return to tour with them at any chance we get. Not only did we get to learn about the history and culture of a fascinating country, but we feel like we made a friend there and Albania has a very special place in all of our hearts. I could go on and on about Albania and Albania-TravelNet but I really just suggest you go and discover how amazing and unspoiled this treasure is for yourself. I know that I plan on returning many times. There is still so much to discover in Albania and with Enea, nothing is impossible.

    We spent 9 days exploring central and southern Albania with Albania Travelnet, in late October 2014. The tour was flawlessly organized and offered an absorbing study of the country's complex cultural and political history. Intelligent and well-read with an excellent command of English, our guide not only imparted his vast and exhaustive knowledge of historical facts but also shared his interpretations and opinions of past events and their connection to the present-day narrative. We entrusted our guide with selecting the restaurants and ordering our food and were delighted with all of his decisions. As it happens, Albania is an epicurean paradise (who knew?) offering a diverse assortment of fresh meat, seafood, pasta and vegetarian dishes “ the true standouts were lamb, young goat and in the coastal areas, mollusks (particularly mussels and octopus). Lodgings everywhere were clean and for the most part very good, with our clear favourite being the enchanting Bujtina Kodiket B&B in Berat. Until we began our journey, we knew very little about the country and we'd like to thank Albania Travelnet for enlightening us with his spirited lessons in Albanian history and social studies and showcasing the country's splendid beauty.

    We were totally unsure of what to expect, but after 8 days with Albania Travelnet we had a real appreciation of the country’s history, culture, peoples and topography. Our guide proved to be not only a treasureleigh 1 trove of facts but also a very personable companion, focused at all times not only on ensuring we were exposed to all aspects of the country but also on ensuring that we understood the how, the when and the why of what we were seeing. We were introduced to the many delights of the local cuisine. We enjoyed many culinary delights but found ourselves politely but firmly refusing a second helping of stuffed sheep spleen. We learned a great deal about the country but also about the life of its people (or various peoples, as we became more and more aware of the different ethnic groupings and their origins). We came away with both an understanding and an affection for the country. We can’t recommend this tour highly enough for small group tours of this fascinating country which offers so much but which, it seems, still remains a well-kept secret.
