Tour description

Immerse yourself in the beauty and history of a country that was under communist rule for almost 50 years.
My intention is to give a warm welcome to all who decide to visit my city. I will do my best to provide you with a high-quality tour, engage you during the walking, and give insights into the history, culture, and daily life in Tirana.
What is special about my tours is that I organise them in small groups which gives you the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the guide.

We will start our impressive tour in front of the Bank of Albania (Banka e Shqipërisë), south end of the Skenderbeg Square.
Our itinerary will be as follows, passing the main attractions:

  • National Historical Museum🏛️
  • Opera House 🏤
  • Et’hem Bej Mosque 🕌
  • Clock Tower 🏫
  • BUNK’ART 2 Museum🏛️
  • Promenade Murat Toptani 
  • Tirana Castle 🏰
  • Lana River🌿
  • Saint Paul Catholic Cathedral ⛪️
  • Pyramid of Tirana
  • Checkpoint- Postbllok👮🏼
  • Blloku Area 
  • Youth Park-Taiwan Park🌲🌳
  • Orthodox Church ⛪️

We will finish our tour with the unique museum “House of Leaves” full of history and tragedy.

To make your stay more enjoyable, I will recommend places to eat since Albania is a country distinguished by tasty traditional food.🥘🍛🥗🍯🍨🍻
Thank you for your time and see you soon!

Elton was a fun and informative guide that showed us the highlights of Tirana and followed up the tour with useful tips for places to eat etc.

I have done several walking tours, but this tour is definitely the best. Elton presented the historical facts in such a nice way that I didn't feel bored. He showed interesting stories for each monument we visited. I got information for the culture, traditions, food, everyday life of Tirana people, and much more. 100% recommended! 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ deserved!
