          This class was definitely worth the money!! The host was super nice and helpful and offered so many recommendations of places to visit whilst you are in Albania. The food we made was delicious and was not too difficult to follow! Lovely atmosphere and lots of wine! Would definitely recommend!!

          Wonderful experience! 10/10 would recommend!
          Sindi is a wonderful woman who really knew what she was talking about and over-all one of the kindest people we have met. She explained everything perfectly and made the class so enjoyable! We had an amazing time and the food turned out absolutely delicious. The atmosphere here was also very nice and calm which we really appreciated. Would definitely recommend anyone to try this, it is such a fun memory to look back on!

          Wonderful day in Ohrid
          A wonderful tour to Ohrid. Our guide, Endri, guides us along the way to the fortress, visiting the lake and the churches, and ending in the old town of Ohrid. He showed us a scenic restaurant to eat lunch with a view of the lake. The tour almost got cancelled because no one else was joining, but Go as Local made a huge effort, and finally the tour proceed as scheduled with just two people on board. Kudos to them!!

          Travels in the Balkans
          I have used this company twice now. Once for Albania, a second time Kosovo/Macedonia. Highly recommend. They cover a very interesting corner of the world. They tailored the trip to fit my schedule and interests.

          A great introduction to Albania
          This tour is a great way to explore Albania and learn about the country and its fascinating history. Across the six days we went from rugged, snow-capped mountains to clear Mediterranean waters; from formidable Ottoman castles to sprawling Communist-era bunkers; and from wine tasting to bathing in hot springs. The hotels and guest houses were well chosen, and the food was excellent (lots of local fruit, vegetables and cheeses). Go as Local were reliable and communicative, and Daniel was a friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful guide who was always willing to answer our questions. Out favourite places were Berat and the Vjosa river. Bear in mind that on this trip you go the length of the country, which does mean that there is a lot of travelling. (We also went to the Go as Local cooking lesson in Tirana, which we would also recommend.)

          Excellent Tour
          I booked the 7-day private tour of Albania, N. Macedonia and Kosovo. Communication was excellent as I was putting my trip together. Andi was very prompt replying back to my questions and kept in touch prior to my departure for Tirana. On the day the tour started my driver, Engjell, was right on time picking me up from the hotel. We spent the next seven days touring the areas described in the itinerary and was not disappointed. Engjell explained the history of the places we visited and that was really important to me. I had many questions and he had many good answers. He was also a very careful driver which made me feel good. The hotels booked for me were wonderful. Most of them, not all, were small local establishments with three or four rooms. The rooms were perfect for a solo traveler and all included breakfast. My three favorite hotels were in Shkoder, Berat and Gjirokastër. The restaurants recommended by Engjell were great. I asked Go As Local if I could end my tour in Shkoder as I wanted to spend a few days there. No problem as they made changes to the tour to allow this. I took the local bus back to Tirana from Shkoder. I would highly recommend touring with Go As Local. The tour and communication were great and the staff very professional. I highly recommend.

          Great way to experience much of Kosovo in a short time.
          This is a long tour (11-12 hours), but the weather was nice and the scenery along the road is lovely. Also my guide, Engjell, is a very entertaining and knowledgeable person, who made the time go by very fast. If you are staying in Tirana, and want to experience Kosovo in 1 day, this is the way to do it.

          Great activity to get to know the country, taste its food, and make new acquaintance
          Great experience! We enjoyed the professionalism and availability of Sindi, the food prepared together as it tasted deliciously, the tempo of the class and the very pleasant atmosphere between the participants.

          Great Look At A Part Of The World That Doesn't Receive Enough Attention
          This was an enjoyable way to hit some highlights from two other countries while staying in Tirana. My guide Endri did a lot of driving and we hit the high points of four of the largest cities in Kosovo and North Macedonia. If you're interested in seeing Kosovo and North Macedonia but starting from a city with a larger airport like Tirana is simpler for you, this would be an excellent tour for you.

          3 countires in 2 days
          Fantastic trip exploring Kosovo and North Macedonia with Redi. Very simple to arrange, hotel pick-up included. It's a lot of driving, but we felt we had just the right amount of time at each stop - it never felt rushed. Great itinerary - 2 new passport stamps :)

          It was fine.
          It was a long day of travelling. We unfortunately got misty weather so the views weren't quite as they could have been. The Blue Eye, Ksamil and Saranda were all lovely as were the smaller towns we drove through. The guide times on the itinerary for each location didn't marry with the actual day. Our stops were shorter. We also didn't spend any time at the castle of Himara. However, we still only got back to Tirana at 8pm. Our guide was fine, monosyllabic in many of his responses. I asked him if it was okay to ask him questions, and he declared that it was but he had to focus on driving so his answers would be short. At lunch, he asked to sit with us (the two of us on the tour were solo travellers) but then didn't chat with us throughout it. Instead he spent his time on his phone and ate in silence. It was a lot of money for a 13hr drive up and down the country in a car with a guide who didn't seem to want to be there and made the day uncomfortable. Luckily for me though I made a friend in the other solo traveller, so for that, it was worth it. I'd spend my €180 on something else.

          An Amazing Private Tour
          I contacted Andi and after some back and forth we organised a four day, three night private tour for myself and husband around Albania. Towns where we overnighted were Theth, Berat and Voskopoje. Andi (and Daniel, our guide), both Albanians, know Albania extremely well and I was happy to leave them to organise the finer details. Communication with Andi was accurate and efficient, and I can recommend Andi highly. Daniel arrived promptly the first day of our tour, and it was the best welcome to Albania we could get. Daniel's warm and welcoming smile set the tone for the next four very busy days. Albania is a spectacular country yet to be discovered, without Daniel we couldn't have seen or appreciated it. Daniel was fun to be with, his polite and patient manner was evident in his driving as well - at no time did I feel uncomfortable with Daniel's driving. Daniel introduced us to the delicious local cuisine, accommodation chosen was nice and clean, and Daniel's amazing knowledge of ancient/recent history bought the past to life. It was an extremely enjoyable tour and I have no hesitation in recommending Go As Locals.

          The most amazing cooking class!
          This was honestly the best excursion I have ever done abroad! Sindi was absolutely amazing and very friendly. She is very knowledgeable and a great cook (especially when me and my group were not) :) Everything was very clean and the ingredients, utensils, and table was beautifully set up for us when we arrived. She also had great recommendations about the city! All of the food was fresh and authentic to local cuisine, and my favorite raw ingredients were the goat cheese and homemade wine. I didn’t know what Albanian food was prior to this class, but after making it and trying it I fell in love! Sindi even gave out recipes so our group can make it at home! The class was a perfect mix of cooking, eating, and learning about Albanian culture. I would highly recommend taking this class especially with Sindi!!

          Everything went perfectly, the places deserved it. My guide Xhulio was fantastic, we spent a great time together and thanks to him the experience was very nice.

        Apr 2024 • Friends
        I did this tour with 4 friends and we all absolutely loved it. We stayed in Tirana and really wanted to see Kruja and Duress during our stay but didn't feel comfortable driving. We booked this tour through our Airbnb host with the intention of seeing Kruja and Duress. Upon pick up Daniel our guide (Who was absolutely incredible) asked why we wanted to see Duress and we mentioned it was to see the Sea. He then asked if he could take us to the Cape of Rodon instead and we said yes. It was incredible, we spent the morning in Kruja learning about the history and then went on to have lunch at the beautiful Duka Winery. We finished off the day with a walk on the Cape of Rodon and it was gorgeous. If you are considering booking this tour do it! Thank you again, Daniel! Our group loved you and would book another tour with you in a heartbeat.

        Andi was so accommodating throughout the entire trip planning process. He is truly passionate about Albania and its history! He picked us up from the airport to start our journey, we spent a few hours at Duka Winery, met with the wine makers, and got to see their hands-on process. We then were able to spend time at Restorant Kantina Duka for our wine tasting with a beautiful lakeside view. From there, we travelled to Kruje where we were able to walk around the castle, do some shopping at the bazaar, and have a delicious local lunch. It's the perfect way to spend your first or last day in Tirana.
