2015-2020 – A Five Year Track Record Arranging Private Tours in Albania

May 2015

“I can’t speak highly enough of our experience. From the first idea of having this trip, to planning a route Ed thought we would enjoy, being met at the airport and looked after all the way. We could do what we wanted, when we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble.”

“Our guide, Ardi, was also brilliant – I can’t praise him enough. He quickly assessed what we liked and didn’t like and would make small changes to the itinerary, after consulting us and Ed. We loved the fact he was so generous with his time and we really enjoyed the fact that we ate most nights together and he shared his insights into the people and its history.”

Why Our Albania Private Tours Are Different 

Albania is changing rapidly, with new hotels and B&Bs opening all the time, often in unlikely spots. The famously bad road network is impoving year-by-year, too, and villages that were previously accessible only by 4×4 can overnight be reached by road car. 

Much of the Albania travel advice you find online is out of date or just plain wrong, so tapping into local knowledge is vital if you want to have the best possible experience in this beautiful region. A Drive Albania private tour will take you away from over-developed and charmless places such as Durrës, Vlorë, Saranda, Pogradec and Valbona. Instead you’ll find yourself in more authentic towns and villages, many of which you won’t find in any guidebook and have minimal presence online.   

If you choose to book a self-drive or guided Albania private tour with us, you’ll be dealing direct with Drive Albania’s owner, Ed Reeves, who lives in Tirana full-time and has travelled extensively throughout Albania and its neighbours.  

Ed will work with you to create the best possible itinerary, designed around your interests, with reasonable travel times and a focus on the more interesting destinations the region has to offer. If you need five-star hotels throughout your tour, or are happy to stay in simple village guest houses, Ed will have the inside track on what’s going to work best.
