We did not pick Dorien Malaj as our guide in Albania; we were matched up by one of the travel industry’s many anonymous middle men—but the moment we actually met Dorien, we knew we had gotten lucky. He was quick to identify our particular interests and to adjust accordingly. Our focus in Albania was their “accursed mountains” in the north east. We expected that in getting from Dubrovnik to Albania, Montenegro would be little more than a “drive through”. However, Dorien took us on a stunning mountain route that included the two beautiful but very different towns of Kotor and Cetinje, which really put Montenegro on the map for us, an added bonus. Dorien was so well-informed and happy to share both the hard facts and the subtle cultural nuances we were observing. His interactions with local people were very interesting to observe, and his background in Psychology gave him an interesting perspective, greatly enhancing our experience. His personal interests were so varied and wide, and that made looking through his eyes very stimulating for us and made conversation very productive. There was no subject off limits—about either Albania or the US. Dorien has a nice sense of humor that seemed to match ours…so that we had lots of fun together, too. It was a very easy and open relationship.

Can’t say enough about how informative this tour was. It gave us a great understanding of Albania and the Balkans. If you are looking for a number of photo opportunities this may not be the trip for you; however, if you want to drive through a beautiful mountain land scape and have an in depth history lesson, book this tour. Highly recommend.

We couldn’t fault this day excursion. Pricier than other excursions but so many components made it a memorable day. Picked up 6:35an arrived back at hotel 8pm. Coach to Corfu Town (worth visit on it’s own by local bus. The old town is the place to see.) then boat to Albania took 70mins. Taken to Restaurant for refreshments. Price of drinks extra but relatively low cost compared with Kavos. Then on to an archaeological site with some lovely scenery. Ruins can be boring. The young guide we had was very well prepared and bought the place alive with descriptions and explanations of each area.Again the views were beautiful. We then went to lunch at the restaurant stopped at earlier. With exception of drinks, all food was included. Buffet meal which was excellent. Off to a castle then and spectacular views from the high vantage point. Back to the town for 75min free time. Very built up but, like Corfu, not many shops. Then back to port and Corfu. It was enough to make us want to visit this once war torn country again for longer time. €48/person plus €10/person like visitor tax.

Berat is one of the best UNESCO heritage site that u will be able to take very nice pictures. The tour guide Marin was humorous and engaging. He is passionate about his work and explained in simple terms for us to understand. He valued - added the tour by helping us to take creative pictures. It was one of the most enjoyable private tour that i had ever had. Strongly recommended anyone who want to know more about berat to sign up the private tour and ask for Marin.
