It was a really nice experience. I am happy with the service. It was prompt and punctual. I had a transfer from TIA to Tirana and then the next day from Tirana onwards to the coast. Brikena was my poc and she did a nice job. Strongly recommend it.

My experience was extremely positive. I coordinated with Sirma from the main office and she answered all of my questions regarding travel to Berat and other tours. I was taken to Berat by Armando (guide and driver) and he showed me the most beautiful and interesting parts of the city. He has been to Berat many times and was able to answer all of my questions and change the trip to suit my needs. He truly is a great person and he is always excited to show the wonders of Albania to others!

I want to take this time to thank Eri Veseli for the wonderful experience as my tour guide. He has now shown me the Albanian hospitality through his caring and most helpful manners. His knowledge of history, command of the English, coupled with his music and most professional customer service. I want also to thank Choose Balkans for giving me the best. He is a credit to this company. Also, he is very wonderful driver that I was never concerned for my safety. Also, the moments of laughter was daily. My heart is full of very good memories. Thanking you again, Joyce Jones USA

We were concerned about trying to coordinate a hiking trip from Valbona to Theth after trying to secure guest house reservations unsuccessfully on our own and also reading many disaster stories of people unable to get tickets for the Berisha Ferry. Eventually, we decided it made sense to turn to professionals to coordinate and guide us on this adventure. After some research, we settled on Choose Balkans. Our coordinator was Sirma. She organized: Tirana airport pickup, stay at a Choose Balkans apartment in Tirana, pickup the following morning with travel to the Komani Lake Berisha Ferry, Ferry tickets, pickup at end of ferry ride with transfer to Valbona guest house, guest house accommodations in Valbona and Theth, transport from Theth to Durres rather than Tirana and a guide. Sirma organized everything perfectly and the entire adventure went off without a hitch. Our driver from Tirana to Valbona and from Theth to Durres was Berti. He was fantastic. Even though we don’t speak Albanian and he didn’t speak English, he was eager to tell us about Albania and his life and family and learn about us. Driving in some parts of Albania can be a challenge (traffic in the cities) and Berti was an expert. Our guide was Gerion (“Geri”). Geri was a joy to be with. He translated our discussions with Berti, was eager to tell us about his own life in Albania, Albanian culture and history. We learned so much about Albania and the Balkans in general. His breadth of knowledge was phenomenal. He was also very patient and accommodating as my husband was much slower than he normally would have been on the hike due to a knee injury he has had for about a year. We completed the hike from Valbona to Theth successfully and without incident——and it was a highlight of our trip to Albania. We also did a short hike to the lock in tower and waterfall in Theth and a short hike in Valbona the evening before the big hike. He simply couldn’t do enough to make our journey enjoyable and comfortable. He introduced me to mountain tea—-my favorite beverage in Albania, next to the delicious wine! Also, all along our journey, we would occasionally run into people having some difficulty (hiking the wrong way, not sure which way to go, unable to communicate with someone, understand something, etc.)—-and Geri was so kind and stepped in to help them. The guest house accommodations in Valbona and Theth were perfect and beautiful. The stops for food and drink during the car rides and along the hike were excellent. All along our adventure, Sirma was checking in to make sure we were satisfied and things were going well. We’ve traveled all around the world and have not had a tour operator as professional and organized and communicative as Choose Balkans and Sirma. Most tour companies are happy to take your money and hope you enjoy the journey, but Choose Balkans is interested in making absolutely sure that every step of your journey meets your expectations and that you are enjoying your time in Albania (or any or the other Balkan countries where they operate). Thank you, Choose Balkans! Jen and John B.
