A tour that will take you to one of the most interesting destinations of Balkans Ohrid town, This town is North Macedonia's most seductive destination. It sits on the edge of serene Lake Ohrid, with an atmospheric old quarter that cascades down steep streets, dotted with beautiful churches and topped by the bones of a medieval castle. Famous for its lake and architecture. At the same time you will visit Lin, a small peninsula softly joins the shores of Lake Ohrid. It was once called “Lake of Light” perhaps because the light of both the sun and the moon wholly illuminate its surface year-round. Indeed, this lake’s reflections are legendary! Hundreds of locals reside in this small but beautiful peninsula. As you descend the road to get there, you will notice the beautiful red roofs of its characteristic small homes.

Prizren, Day Trip from Tirana

Prizren, in Kosovo, is a charming city of mosques and monasteries dating back to the 14th century. Happily spared (mostly) from both the "destroy the old, build the new" drive of the communists during the early years of their rule in Yugoslavia, as well as the ethnic and religious atrocities that plagued the Western Balkans in the last decade of the 20th century, Prizren has the best-preserved old town in the country so far, and is often referred to as the cultural capital of Kosovo.

star-5

Ohrid is a city in the southwestern part of North Macedonia, on the northeast coast of Ohrid Lake. Ohrid and Lake Ohrid are one of the main tourist destinations in North Macedonia. Due to the large number of churches and monasteries, the city of Ohrid is known as Balkan and European Jerusalem. It is also known as the “City of Light”, a literal translation of its old name, Lychnidos. The Ohrid region is included in the UNESCO World Heritage. According to one legend, written by the Miladinov Brothers, when the Ohrid fortress was made, Emperor Justinian climbed the hills on which the city lies, and, looking at the beautiful surroundings, exclaimed “oh-hill”, which means, a beautiful hill. Since then, the city is called Ohrid. Modern Ohrid is the heir of the ancient Lychnidos. According to the data, the city was first mentioned 2,400 years before the new era. Lihnidos was on the Via Egnatia road, the oldest and most significant Roman traffic route in the Balkans.

Day Trip to Ohrid Macedonia & Pogradec / offered by Tirana Day trips
"My husband and I got married during the covid-19 pandemic, so our options for honeymoon destinations (i.e., which countries were allowing Americans to enter) were quite limited. Things were changing so quickly that we booked, and cancelled, 4 different honeymoon plans, until ultimately we chose Albania the day after our wedding, because it was open to Americans. We didn't have much time to plan what to do, so we booked this trip for our first full day there, and left everything else open. It was a great decision! First, the trip to North Macedonia was amazing! The stops were absolutely breathtaking. This excursion was my husband's favorite thing we did on our honeymoon, and it was my second favorite (after Gjipe beach). Second, our guide Endrit (apologies if I misspelled it!) was amazing. We were staying in Golem instead of Tirana, and he drove the extra 45 minutes each way to pick us up, without any complaints or requests for additional fees. He also was a very skilled and safe driver, making us feel safe even when the other drivers on the road did crazy things. Endrit spoke English well and was very knowledgeable (and excited!) about his tours (especially the Albanian portions!). Endrit also went above and beyond in other ways, like by taking us to a romantic restaurant for lunch and then letting us have lunch alone while he walked all the way back to where we had left the car and brought it back to the restaurant so we wouldn't have to walk back! Third, we wanted to do a trip to the South/Albanian Riviera and weren't sure how we would get there. We had called a hotel in Himare and they said they didn't have any suggestions for us other than to rent a car. We asked Endrit if he had any suggestions on how we could make this happen, and he immediately offered to take us there, with any itinerary we wanted (e.g., a day trip, a 4-day trip, etc.). We worked with his organization to decide on a 2-day itinerary that would take us to the places we most wanted to see, plus some extra places off the beaten path that they knew about in the areas we were driving through. Our only criticisms would be that: 1) guided tours aren't the most romantic options (although much more educational and convenient!), so we were happy that we didn't book the 4-day trip and had some alone time in addition to the guided tours; 2) Endrit seemed to want to throw in some surprise extras, which was very nice, but if I were doing this over, I think I would insist on an exact itinerary, so that I can make sure that the things we want to do are being prioritized (e.g., that we get to the beach while it is still warm out instead of close to sunset); and 3) the car we took to the South's air conditioning seemed to have broken (my husband and I were sweating sitting in the car WAY more than we had been on our multi-hour vigorous hike on this trip), but Endrit apologized for this and indicated that he would look into getting it fixed when he returns, so I assume that won't be a problem for future travelers. Overall, we very much recommend this trip, and any other trips you might take with this group!"..."

"I was only in Tirana for 48 hours and this day trip was a great way to get a personal experience and insight into the evolution of Tirana and the Albanian culture. I had not realised some of the very interesting history and our guide Leo gave great care of the tour and made it an experience to remember! I especially liked the bunker tours and it was much better having Leo talk me through it, rather than just reading the labels. If you are in Tirana then check it out!"..."

Ohrid, Full Day Trip from Tirana
"Adam picked me up from my Tirana hotel promptly, and immediately made me feel welcome in his country. As a single female traveller getting into the car of a stranger and driving off into the mountains there was potential for unease, or at least of questioning my choices, however there was absolutely no cause for concern with Adam. He knows his Albanian history inside out and is clearly an experienced guide. He made special effort to accommodate whatever it was I wanted from the day (in particular, helping me find postcards/a post office, and lending me the local currency to buy them) and has some great stories to tell - particularly if you’re a Brit. He was kind enough to throw in a walking tour of Tirana and give me a lift to the airport at the end of the day which was highly appreciated. You’ll be in good hands with Adam; he highlights the best of the Albanian people and his love of travelling and meeting people shines through. 10/10 day."..."

Pearls of Albania tour in eight days (3 UNESCO sites)
"October 15-24 was the time frame of the absolutely delightful 8-day tour of the highlights of Albania. The accommodations were beautiful, intimate, reflective of the history or folklore of the region, as well as clean with friendly staff. The guide, Eduart was knowledgeable about the history, culture, sites, providing extensive detail each day, and taking into account my preferences and interests. Choose Balkans was solution-oriented in the one occasion when the pounding noise of an illegal nighttime building construction would have kept me awake all night. Within minutes of emailing the company of the problem, there was a knock on the door to arrange another location across the hall, quiet. I was able to sleep the rest of the night. Similarly, Alban, the director of the company, promptly answered every one of my inquiries in a timely and detailed manner. As a result, I did sign up for the tour. I have learned so much about this humble little country known as Albania. I suggest you see it before the throngs if tourists descend upon it."..."

Durres, Kruje, Full Day Trip From Tirana
"While waiting to be picked up for the tour, we were expecting to join a big group. However, we were the only ones going. Our own private tour! Adam the tour guide, from the start right through to drop off was excellent. He couldn't do enough for us. Not only did he have lots of detailed information about the towns we visited he also gave us tips and hints for places not included in the tour. We also had an off agenda stop at 'George Bush Town' (Google it). Adam also helped us buy a hand made rug to take home (something that we wanted to do when arriving in Albania) - particularly helpful in Kruje with so many shops offering their wares. In terms of the places visited, Kruje was my favourite - a quaint and picturesque town with a castle and fairly cool Skanderbeg museum. Durres was nice and seeing the old amphitheatre enjoyable. We enjoyed the tour so much that we booked another tour with Adam to go to Berat the next day. A worthwhile and enjoyable tour!"..."
