Albania 2 Days Private Tour from Dubrovnik

What to expect in Albania?

Reveal the heart of Balkans region with this exciting adventure which will conduct you through Albania and Montenegro. If you think you have seen whole of the Europe, think again, because this destination situated on western coast of Balkan peninsula is last secret waiting for you to discover it.

This exciting 2 days trip from Dubrovnik will give you opportunity to learn about unknown country Albania and to see the best of Montenegro, like fortified towns of Budva, Kotor and Sv. Stefan. You will see fascinating landscapes with mountains on the north and beautifull coastline and rivers on the south. You shouldn't be surprised by a vast number of bunkers because Albania was ruled by communist dictator Enver Hoxha for almost 40 years and paranoid fear from invasion of neighbors left a trace in the form of bunkers that were made to fit only one soldier.

What a wonderful and memorable adventure it was! He took us to many beautiful locations and provided us with special experiences that we never could have had on our own or with a large tour group. He was knowledgeable and professional, and we highly recommend Dubrovnik Tours- Vidokrug for your next adventure.“ Read more
