Tour description

Our goal is for you to see the Eternal City the way we do: streets, stones, plants, restaurants, neighbourhoods and know the story behind them.
I prefer touring with small groups, so it's much easier to chat and ask questions as we walk around.
Embark on a journey through time and immerse in the former communist capital full of history, imprisonments, and interrogations. The house of leaves Museum, the story behind this misterious building and the ivy plants creeping on its walls.

Our tour will start at the Carousel in the  Skenderbeg Square and we will visit these attractions:

1- Skenderbeg Square and its stone Tiles
2- Little forests near the main square
3- Skenderbeg monument
4- National Historical Museum
5- Et'hem Bej Mosque
6- The Clock Tower
7- Dajti Mountain- how to get there
8- BUNK'ART 2 Museum
9- Tirana Castle
10- Downtown One and its balconies
11- Lana River
12- The pyramid
13- The Checkpoint and Blloku Area- the nightlife of Tirana
14- The Youth Park- Taiwan Park
15- Orthodox Church
16- The House of Leaves Museum

And the food 😋 I will definitely recommend places to eat in Tirana. We will visit some restaurants during our walk and talk about traditional dishes and the secrets they are made of.

See you soon my friends! 🙂

Elton told us he is a teacher and I imagine that he’s a very good one because of the way he presented the tour. So much information and so many great places, the 2 hours flew by! Also recommended a great restaurant for us and gave us other advice and recommendations on the rest of our trip

Really excellent tour with Elton! I’ve done a lot of these and this one was one of the best. Informative and great route. A little history, a little culture, a little art and a little info on the local food. Perfect to orient yourself in Tirana. He even sends you a list of the best places to eat and a street art tour you can do yourself. Highly recommend!
