My boyfriend and I spent two weeks traveling with Migen through Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro and northern Greece in May 2016. Migen turned what would be a good tour into a great vacation! He consistently went above and beyond to make our big travel aspirations a reality. For this we couldn't be more thankful!
Migen worked hard each day to make sure that we had everything we needed and then some. He was always timely, knowledgeable, safe and flexible. His flexibility and desire to make us happy gave us the ability to add two additional countries (Montenegro and northern Greece) to our original itinerary. While this was not the norm for a preplanned itinerary it was one of the main reasons we had a fantastic trip. The fact that he understood that we had hired a private guide for the purpose of last minute changes should we choose was a huge asset. We can't say thank you enough for his helpfulness and creative thinking.
Migen is a kind individual with a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm about the places he tours. In addition, if he isn't the expert to a particular place he has many friends and professional contacts; whether it was an archaeologist in Apollonia, owners of a hotel or contacting a museum to open their doors to allow for a private viewing, Migen made sure we had a first class experience to enjoy all of the unique sites, history and art.
He was always smiling and working to ensure we had the best of everything. Migen goes out of his way to treat his guests like no other. For example, there was a store in Gjirokastër that was closed when we were visiting and I had told Migen about it and the souvenir that I had seen in the window...guess what showed up in my mailbox a month after we returned home! Migen started as our guide but ended as our Albanian friend. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to tour this beautiful region in Europe especially if you enjoy good coffees in fantastic locations along the way.
Thank you Migen for being such an integral part in making our vacation outstanding!
