There are some tourists but still very "original" - the parking lot, were I parked with my rental car that looked like it was in a destruction derby, hat 30 cars and the attendant was at the end of his patience. Buthrotum is very interesting and it is amazing that you can still walk into the 2000+ year old ruins. Some still have the mosaics on it. Soon it will be closed off.... Bring water, it is hot in the summer and there is no water for sale - the first guy who figures out to sell water at tourist sites in Albania will a rich guy.
Ksamil is also amazing, however, everything is still very simple - don't expect too much but the sea is great.

Amazing team with full support
Jun 2019 • Friends
Gabby Tours was really the best choice! We started to communicate with them 6 months before arrival and all the time they were so open and answered all my emails with a lot of attention. I was felling really safe and secure for all trip decisions, because of planning.
The trip which we ordered was fantastic. They prepared nice cars. I had many experiences, when not everything is ok. For example, when the car is dirty. I noticed, that Gabby Tours cars was very clean and even the tires was cleaned. haha :D
During the first day in Albania with Edi from Gabby Tours we got really good sence where we are, how Albanians live and got a lot of historical interesting information.
After the first day trip, we rented the cars. For the last day we took the fastboat.

Best Regards from Lithuanian team Edi! :))) thank you!!!

Perfect tour for seeing the major sites
Jun 2019 • Couples
We had limited time in Albania so a tour was the way to go for our group. This was a perfect way to hit the highlights. The arrangements went smoothly and our guide was waiting on us when we got off the ferry. He went to great lengths to make sure we had an enjoyable time. We all enjoyed the Blue Eye as well as Buthrotum. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about history and was overall an enthusiastic tour guide. We enjoyed the tour and were glad to try some authentic Albanian food. Wish we could have spent more time in this lovely and interesting country.

Thanks a lot for your review Mrs. Murphy!! I wish the rain would had stopped even just for a few minutes on the day of your tour, at least only when we were visiting the Blue Eye springs, I am sure you would have had a much more pleasant day .As I said from one point of view your group was lucky to visit the highlights of Saranda while raining, most of the other visitors do not get this chance. And it is a different kind of beauty to be in the Blue Eye springs when it rains.

Absolutely stunning.
Jul 2018
Stunning natural spring in an out of the way location. Very cheap prices for coffee and snacks considering it is such a tourist venue. €1 for Espresso. (Euros and Lek appear to be accepted widely throughout Albania tourist attractions and shops near the port of Saranda.)
Nothing to do with the site organisation, but I was disappointed that despite clear signs against diving and swimming in the spring, many visitors were jumping and paddling! (Technically different, I accept, disappointing non-the-less).

Wonderful Excursion
Jun 2018
We highly recommend this excursion. Edi was an outstanding tour guide. Patient, knowledgeable and very friendly. He went out of his way to ensure we had a great time. And we sure did. I felt some hesitation going to Albania but I cannot speak highly enough of the people. Very kind. It seems everybody wants to ensure you are having a good time. We greatly enjoyed Butrint. A very interesting place. The Blue Eye is a serene, somewhat mystical place that is certainly worth wile visiting as well. All in all, this was a great day trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend it. And to those of us who feel reluctance going to Albania (particularly my fellow Americans) - don't be concerned. It is a beautiful, friendly, and safe country.

Not a hot spring
It should be noted that the thermal springs are not hot springs. I was surprised when I felt the cool water. Also,
