Esperienze intensa ed interessante. Il tour è lungo ed estremamente variegato, con molte informazioni diverse da quelle che si possono recuperare autonomamente. Bris parla molto bene italiano ed è in grado di dare note precise e dettagliate sui diversi luoghi della città. Consigliatissimo sia per la passeggiata che per le informazioni ulteriori che ci ha inviato e per i consigli su cose interessanti e dove farle. Grazie Bris, ci hai fatto vedere una Tirana che non ci aspettavamo.

Davvero bellissima esperienza. Tour completo e ben spiegato. Lui davvero disponibile e socievole, tanto da instaurare un bel rapporto anche oltre la fine del tour. I luoghi visitati sono essenziali da vedere, e con una guida che possa spiegare anche la storia, ne vale la pena. Per niente noioso e monotono. Lo rifarei sicuramente
