Know More about this tour

Meet with the group and leave Tirana at 9:30 am. You will be driven towards the historical town of Kruja.   Kruja is located 32 km northwest of Durres and 45 minutes by car from Tirana. Kruja rises on the slopes of Sari - Salltiku Mountain. It provides to the visitors the great view of majestic landscape and a rich collection of historical and cultural objects. The most important is the castle of Kruja, which was built during the 5th and 6th centuries. The surrounding walls are reinforced by nine towers, which served as an observation and signaling post during times of war. Within the walls of the castle there can still be found the remains of a few houses.   Start your walking tour of Kruje, through the narrow streets of the medieval well preserved Old Bazaar. Once inside the city walls you will visit the fortress, the Ethnographic Museum, the Museum of George Kastriot Skanderbeg, the Albanian National Hero.   Time for lunch in a traditional restaurant where you will enjoy delicious food.   Return to Tirana. Tirana became capital of Albania in 1920 and is the largest city of Albania. Your tour starts from the Main Boulevard at Skenderbeg Square. Here you can visit the National theater, Skanderbeg Statue (dedicated to the National Hero), Historic Museum, Cultural Palace, Et’hem Bey Mosque, Clock Tower and going through the Boulevard to the Pyramid, built in 1988 as a museum for Enver Hoxha, dictator of the period.   End of service.

    We were met at our hotel by Iliri who turned out to not only have an encyclopedic knowledge of the area, but he was a really nice guy, and pleasant to be with. In Kruje, he took us to Skanderbeg castle and gave us the details of the Albanian history of the mid-1400's that was attached to the ruins, and the very nice museum there. Then on a walking tour of the Tirana city square and main boulevard along which there are interesting sights such as Skanderbeg's statue, the parliament building, and large churches of the three religious groups: Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic (Mother Theresa's church), and the new Mosque. Would highly recommend this tour.

    Det var en dem bästa guidade turer vi haft. Det var en fantastisk fin dag , den 19juni 2018. En bekväm bil (VW Touran men luftkonditionering) och guide för två personer kändes lyxig. Det var inte alt. Informationen vi fick på jätte bra engelska hjälpte oss att känna till Albanska kulturen och historien. Det ändrade komplett vår syn på Albanien och det glade oss att inse att kommunismen inte lyckades förstöra den goda i människan. Efter en hel dag promenad i vackra Kruja och Tirana kändes det inte tröttsamt efter en hel dag med an guidning av denna klass. Nästa gång i Tirana skulle vi önska oss träffa samma guide. Det var professionellt och varmt bemötande. Det var inte bara en guidning utan en dialog. Det tyckte vi om mycket. Tack en gång till för en fantastisk dag ,Iolanda och Cristian från Göteborg

    If you are lucky to get ILIA then you are in for a treat. Excellent guide with fantastic knowledge of area and the country's history with great additional information to make the day so enjoyable and memorable. We are seasoned travellers and this trip and guide was one of the best. Visiting the most interesting buildings and sites, we just wish we had more time to use him for other regions in this surprising country. Bazaar, museums and local restaurant were great. Five star trip and guide.

    I just did the Tirana and Kruja Full Day Tour with Ilir, and it was a great way to see both Tirana and Kruja. Ilir was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He answered all my questions and did a great job of describing the very interesting history of the region. I also enjoyed him shedding light on what life is like in Albania and how it has changed so much just in the past few decades. I highly recommend doing this tour as a great way to begin exploring Albania!

    Wonderful tour that gives you plenty of time to see the sights in Kruja...which is definitely one of the highlights to see in Albania. Illir sp? was the perfect tour guide. In addition to really knowing his historical stuff, he was able to share lots of insight about contemporary Albanian culture. He was utterly thorough, professional, and accommodating. If you have a short amount of time in Tirana and want to see the local highlights, this tour is highly recommended. You can't beat it for history, spectacular scenery, and overall fun.

    Professional and well educated guide that went above and beyond even when the weather wasn't great. A tour with lots to see - not overbearing, but still immersive.
