In August 2016 we organised a private Albania Jeep tour for Mike Springett and his partner Jackie, from Essex. When they got in touch with us they were looking to fly from Tirana to London Gatwick with British Airways, but after an exchange of emails we suggested that as they lived close to Stansted, it would make more sense to fly home from Corfu, which is reached easily by ferry from the southern Albania port of Saranda. This tour was a short one, beginning with a pick up from the Aman Sveti Stefan Resort in Montenegro, with overnights in Shkodër, Tirana, and the UNESCO cities of Berat and Gjirokastra (just over an hour from Saranda). Here are Mike’s comments…
“We just spent six days touring Albania with Drive Albania Jeep Tours. The whole experience was great, from the planning of a bespoke tour that with their advice met our needs and combined the north and south of the country with some fun offroad driving along with a good mix of cultural sites, historic towns, scenic mountain roads, beaches and some good restaurants. All the hotels chosen were very good and better than we expected.
“Our guide and driver Ardi was excellent. A good, safe driver and a great guy – easy to get along with, always flexible to our needs and always on time.
“Overall the trip was a great success. Albania is a country well worth visiting and I would not hesitate to recommend Drive Albania.”
