I will share with you the best tips to enjoy the city and to get tasty Albanian traditional food and drink! If you want to know more information about me or the tour please don't hesitate to message me.
1. Dear guest, tips are voluntary and no pressure about how much. Is more Important for me that you enjoy the city and my tour. The tip should just reflect the quality of the tour according to your budget.
2. Dear guest, in case that you are the only person or couple to book the tour, I have to reschedule the tour at another time if its possible for you to participate otherwise I am really sorry but I will probably cancel the tour due to costs reasons. We will see about that and try to find a solution so we can do the tour. Anyway I will notify you the day before the tour is programmed, so in any case you will have the possibility the day after to book a tour with another Guru.
3. Dear guest, the tour is programe to last about 2 hours and a quarter, but depending on all guest's walking rhythm, it may take more.
4. Dear guest, for our convinience the tour time start may change a little bit depending on the weather, especially during summer to avoid the heat. We will decide and agree together the day before the tour about that.
Thank you for your time. 😊
