What do you most love sharing with Explore groups?

Sharing about the culture of my country. I try to encourage guests to have as much as possible local interactions. My idea is not to show them just places and buildings but to create experiences that will become memorable and bring them back home with a positive taste of Albania. In this way people can come back. 

What are you most proud of in your country?
We are distinguished for our hospitality and being genuine with people that are coming to visit Albania. I love my country’s history, landscape, nature and its people.  

What do travellers find most surprising when they visit?
Local interaction is a highlight. Landscape as well. The cultural shock of the expectations for Albania and the impressions they get from my homeland.
