Tour Reviews
  • Chuthamas

    My friends and I have enjoyable and memorable for the 8 days trip in Albania. The itinerary plan was carefully thought through, well balanced and adjusted in proper places and timing.  Stefo has organized everything for us and made a possible for an overnight stay in the Vila Blu Hotel in Himare. We have a relaxing time there and 2 out of 6 of us have a chance for swimming as well.

    Stefo always pay attention into details, starting from all accommodations arrangement and good recommendation for fantastic foods and restaurants (especially all the fishes we had). His consideration for his clients is very superb.  

    It is one of our great vacation in this year.
