It wasn't easy to find a tour guide as the Saranda port is quite busy to meet (full of Taxi drivers). The guide was very nice and lead us to all the locations and let us decide how long we want to stay where. While we got some information about the different places we visited, it was very minimal and I had expected the guide to talk and share more.

The Blue Eye was super beautiful to see, but Lekuresi Castle was not as impressive. We could easily have spent more time at the blue eye, the nature was so beautiful out there. But still very satisfied with the trip :-)
