Enjoyed a day trip from Tirana with a small group of five to UNESCO heritage site of Berat. Mr. Enri, the guide from Albania My Way was quite knowledgeable and helpful. The first stop during the tour was a stop at Belsh lake promenade where we enjoyed our coffee break. We visited the Berat castle, Onufri Museum as the highlights of the tour. Mr. Enri answered all our queries happily pertaining to the places of interest as well as Albanian culture to make it a memorable experience. Overall, the tour was well organised and enjoyable.

A value for money day trip from Tirana to one of the UNESCO heritage sites of Albania. Our tour guide Enri was quite knowledgeable, helpful and always attentive to any needs of our small group tour party of 5 people. Berat visit started with visiting the castle and Onufri museum (the famous Iconography museum), followed by visiting the Mangalem & Gorica Quarters connected by the Old & the new bridges. However, Belsh visit just included a coffee break stop on the Belsh Lake promenade. Overall, it was a memorable trip, enjoyed by all.
