    Very disappointed.  The guide was a nice enough young man but was clearly pressed into service for some reason.  He spoke little English.  

    The car was a very old two door Opal and there were four of  us and the driver. 

    Albania was beautiful and the people we met very friendly and helpful, but the tour was a disappointment.

    It was a full day of very enriching moments. The drive around the countryside was beautiful. Golem, Berat and Durres all have very nice qualities. My guide was really cool and gave me an awesome experience. Lunch was a lot of food haha but delicious. I had a really great time.
