Butrint National Park is a very interesting archelogoical site. Each area has well written clear descriptions of the particular ruin. If history is your interest then this is well worth the trip. We took a tour from Corfu which included the ferry to Saranda, lunch and the tour. I generally don't like tours preferring to go alone. While our tour was good, if I were to return I would arrange each segment by myself. The ferry is easy enough to do from the new port in Corfu town. Once on the Albanian side the border control was quick, taxis were readily available to take to the site. The site is well marked and going by yourself it is much easier to really take-in the history and the magic of the area. Our tour guide was difficult to hear among all the other tours and I found myself relying on the written descriptions and my book for more detailed explanations. Lunch was good but easy to find a place by yourself. The tours usually give some free time but really not enough to do much other than pop your toes in the water and have ice cream. Butrint National Park is a great day trip -either way you go.

We visited Albania earlier this month. We had a very good experience with Albanian trip. Vilma helped with planning via email and when we arrived in Albania we had a great time touring on private tour with a driver and car that accommodated all 6 of us. We drove from Tirana to Vlore to Dhermi and Saranda. Big shoutout to Sokol best tour guide/driver for getting us through the wonderful scenic mountain road(Llagora pass). Some of us had fear of height and he was extra careful and very aware. We highly recommend Sokol and the company.Show More
