We were a group of 6 and booked this tour with Albania Express Travel. Unfortunately we stayed only 3 days in Albania, but this tour was perfect for a short stay. We've seen Tirana, Berat (Unesco), Durres and Kruja. Luxury minivan, very good English speaking tour guide and very interesting itinerary. Worth every penny. I would highly recommend booking!
