This is my second amazing tour booked through Get Your Guide. It’s difficult to say which I enjoyed more: the conversation with guides Randi and Ervis, swimming in the canyon, or my surprise and very much dreamed of visit to Bogove Waterfall. As a solo traveler it would have been easy with two guides to feel the outsider. I’m a high school teacher so one of the joys in my life is to talk with educated and interesting young people. I hit the jackpot with Randi and Ervis- topics ranged from history to the meaning of life and everything in between. They were incredibly conscientious of my safety without being patronizing- a hard needle to thread. The canyon was gorgeous. The waterfall was peaceful. It was a perfect day. Go alone, as a couple, or with the kids! All ages!

The tour was just great. Our guide arrived on time and drove us to the gorge. During the trip he made sure that we were fine several times and asked if we might need breaks because the route is a bit more strenuous. In between, we ticked off the lookout points. We then arrived at the osumi river. It was so beautiful there, just fantastic. There was also a small restaurant there. We then hiked a little through the canyon. Beautiful view

Tour to Apollonia and Berat - both places well worth seeing - friendly and competent guide - lots of interesting information - good food in Berat - an entertaining excursion.

the tour with Elvis and Gazi was great, he showed us great spots, adapted to our pace and gave great tips for other destinations. The food was very good too

Super adventure. Nice staff and pleasant atmosphere. A unique experience. Recommended to everyone
