SOME WORDS FROM OUR PREVIOUS GUESTS
Bente, Bergen, Norway
Best Albanian tour guide This summer me and my children decided to go to Albania since we had been reading that it should be such a beautiful and interesting country to visit. When doing research about Albania I came over LimitlessAlbania so we decided to try a local guide to get the best out of our vacation – and we are so glad we did! We met Fatmir in Tirana and he showed us around so we got to see all the best things Tirana has to offer. When showing us around he told us about Albanian history. We were so impressed about all the things he knew about his country in the past and he was so enthusiastic that even my kids thought history was fun. Gesi took us on a 2 days trip and showed us hidden gems that we would never had discovered without him. Gesi has also lots knowledge about Albanian history so we got to learn so much about this country which has a completely different history then our own country. When we told LimitlessAlbania what we were interested in and what we wanted to explore they tailor made our trip exactly the way we wanted it to be – active with hiking in the Albanian alps, driving through Thore pass which was a nice thrill and something we could never had done without LimitlessAlbania and not to mentioned Osumi Canyon which must be seen when travelling to Albania. Again I have to say thank you LimitlessAlbania for making our vacation so interesting and fun. You guys did a great job! We will come back and we will for sure let LimitlessAlbania also next time be our local guide Contiune reading on

We had a great weekend visiting Tirana and Durrës. Fatmir took very good care of us, and made sure our stay was more than we expected. All the restaurants he booked for us was very good and we highly recommend Limitless Albania Contiune reading on

Southern Albania in June 2019 Fatmir (who is not fat by the way) is a young and enthusiastic Albanian who loves his country, speaks perfect English and has a very comfortable AWD Volvo to convey his private tour passengers.That was our experience, three Australians who had little knowledge of his country. Our first stop off the ferry from Corfu was the Blue Eye, Fatmir’s swimming hole as a young child. Paradise; water so clear that you cannot see anything but crystal blue. Devine! – then to a hotel in Gjiocaster, Kalemi 2 where we slept in a luxurious room of panelled wood, walked the town and were presented with a breakfast that was gourmet. The fortress,12th century is perched on top of a hill that pressed us against the back of our seats as we drove to the gate was history personified! He told us stories and legends of Ali Pasha. A young Fatmir and his brother showed tourists around this, their playground as children. We visited villages up in the mountains, ate pure food prepared simply. Tasted wine and raki,walked in untouched churches with unique frescoes fading off the walls, hundreds of acres of olive trees, vistas over the Ionian Sea …. and lots of laughter. Totally recommended Contiune reading on

Limitless Albania IS THE BEST This was the Second time I have travelled with the team from Limitless Albania . They are definitely the ultimate professionals from preparing the itinerary to suit your interests and budget to making every day amazingly special . Gesi our driver/guide is so so knowledgeable about the history and geography of the region and is FUN FUN . We travelled from Tirana north through parts of Montenegro and back through the north of Albania . We did a private boat trip on lake Koman to the most incredible beach and lunch at a private home . A highlight of any trip I have ever done . I cannot recommend Limitless Albania enough and I suggest anyone thinking of a trip to Albania and the Balkans to use them !!! Contiune reading on

Family Trip to Albania Limitless Albania provided a seamless introduction and itinery for our family as we travelled around the country. Fatmir worked with us beforehand to put together a comprehensive tour using his local knowledge and contacts. As the trip got underway he proved very friendly, knowlegable and went beyond expectation in smoothing the journey. The trip in 2018 was so successful that we returned in 2019 to explore the north of the country. We would heartily recommend Limitless Albania to anyone who wants to explore this beautiful country Contiune reading on
Franz, Vienna, Austria
Friendly, perfect service and in time always We booked transfers from and to the airport, as well a 5 days trip through Albania. Gesi and his brother own the company and they offer a perfect service with a smile all the time. We were 3 adults and 1 child 13 years old, we felt all the time save and had the best time ever for this trip. We can recommend these guys for your transfers, trips through Albania, you will be satisfied in every way. Gesi showed us at our trip so many things what we were not able to see, because you can not find it. It was amazing and again perfect 5* service. Contiune reading on

Thank you to Fatmir for his fabulous attention. From the first contact 9 months prior to our holiday Fatmir was very helpful in answering any queries and assisting us with planning our itinerary. We learnt so much about the history of this country as well as hiking in the mountains -enjoyed incredible scenery, local experiences and some of the best food ever! We have traveled extensively and would highly recommend contacting Limitless directly for your Albanian experience. Contiune reading on

A wonderful week in a beautiful country. Three women aged 64 to 73 had all our wishes for this trip fullfilled. The travelling route was scenic and beautiful, the cities too. We visited old churhces and museums, castles and bazars. We were entertained by traditional singers, We enjoyed an interesting place of agritourism and expirienced production of different kinds of food,vine and handicrafts. I even had a swim in thermal water. We had lunch at some exiting places. The food in Albania is natural and tastes real good and the people are friendly. Our hotels were good, without unnessesary luxury, just as we had asked for. I wish to thank our nice guides for a memorable week. Contiune reading on

Superb introduction to Albania Many thanks to Fatmir for a wonderful 3 day trip thru southern Albania.

Astounding Place, Incredible Tour Company We have traveled all over the world–more than a hundred companies, and we were still unprepared for how SPECTACULAR Albania was. Imagine ancient ruins and castles, GORGEOUS natural wonders, and fresh, right of the ground fruits and vegetables. Fatmir was an IDEAL guide; personal, funny, punctual, and well-informed. We are DYING to get back to Albania to discover even more of this beautiful country. Limitless Albania completely customized our tour for us. We wanted to spend a few extra days by the sea, and they adjusted everything to make it work. We ended up REALLY liking certain regions for food, and he adapted. IDEAL host and guide.

Passionate & Intelligent Tour Guide, The ONLY Way To See Albania I almost don’t want to tell everyone how wonderful Albania is, because I want to keep it as my own, wonderful hidden gem. But, it is TOO incredible not to share, and this company is the ONLY way I could ever imagine to see. Fatmir is incredible knowledgable about every inch of his country – there is nothing you can ask that he does not know the answer to. He is also incredibly passionate about his country, and his pride for his land, people, history, and culture is inspiring and contagious. Fatmir made me fall in love with Albania on day one of our week trip. He planned the entire custom schedule; listening to my request, advising, and giving his own expertise until we were happy with everything. We learned very quickly there is nothing he wouldn’t do for us, and that level of true concern and care for our happiness and enjoyment is rare. Contiune reading on

I just wanted to write to thank you for all the work you did to ensure that we (the South Africans and one Brit) had such a wonderful trip to Albania. Your organization of everything was smooth and seamless and the itinerary you arranged allowed us to see and experience such a wide range of what Albania has to offer – from the spectacular Alps of the north to the dramatic peaks and coastline of the south, interspersed with a whole load of history and cultural sights in between. We had such a fantastic and interesting time and were all so sorry when the trip came to an end. Thank you for adapting the schedule and arranging alternative transport/hotels so quickly to accommodate our request to leave Theth early due to the rain. Our thanks also to Nico for going off the planned itinerary to show us Gjipe beach and canyon – a wonderful afternoon! A big thank you to ALL the guides who went out of their way to ensure we got the most out of our stay and our days. It was wonderful to meet you all and learn a little bit about life in Albania. I’m sure Adenis has A LOT more colorful stories to tell about life in the north! Contiune reading on
Robert David Zampetti, London, UK
They found the best hotels and planned an itinerary designed just for us. The best part was how our guide, who became a friend, was happy to make small and not so small daily alterations to our planned itinerary based on a myriad of things such as what he realised we were interested in, weather, and how we all were feeling. For us it was a perfect balance of site seeing, history, philosophic discussion, good food, scenery, relaxation and fun. All engineered by a great guide who was a decent driver too Contiune reading on

10 days of discovery My wife and I planned a visit to Albania as an extension of our European travel in April/May 2019. We took a taxi from Ulcinj, Montenegro to the border and crossed on foot.When we cleared border formalities, we were met by a smiling Fatmir who immediately made us feel welcome and confident about having chosen Limitless Albania as our travel partner/guide. We chose them after researching some other groups and did so because of their ability to respond quickly to any inquiry and their willingness to customize the travel to our interests. We were pleasantly surprised by the ease of travel and the state of most highways. Fatmir, because of his intimate knowledge of the sites and villages, was able to tailor the trip to our likes and was able to take us to unique, “off the beaten track” villages, churches, and lunch spots. He helped us make good decisions in planning our days in order to maximize our experience. As others have stated, he is careful, punctual ,passionate, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. I could not have asked for more. Thanks Fatmir for helping us to better understand your country, its history and its peoples Contiune reading on

SUPPORT LOCAL ECONOMY
At Limitless Albania, we believe that tourism should be a collaborative project that benefits local communities and enterprises. We hand-pick and train local guides who have specialist knowledge of their particular region and will happily go the extra mile to share with you some of their particular favourite places, and/or activities in which to participate. We work hard to involve and build relationships with local hotels and guest houses, restaurants, local artisans, agro-tourism farms etc so that local economies can benefit and grow from tourism-related income. We believe that through such team-work and collaboration - and by pooling our collective knowledge, experience and skills - all parties involved are motivated to provide the best experience possible for our visitors.
Albania has a uniquely diverse and multi-faceted cultural heritage which we are keen to promote and preserve. Where possible, and if of interest to you, we make an effort to schedule into the itinerary visits to ancient ruins, castle-fortresses, historic walled cities and cultural events in order to provide visitors with some insight into the complex and multi-layered history that has shaped modern-day Albania, and the rich variety of traditions that continue to play a strong part in our culture to this day.
Ours is a family business that specialises in providing tailor-made holidays based around your interests in order to give you the best possible experience of exploring Albania, whether travelling as a family, as a group or as an individual seeking a personalised tour. We want your stay to be memorable from start to finish, where no detail is over-looked and every day is filled with unique experiences that send you home relaxed, invigorated and keen to return!
