Best parts:
I cannot speak highly enough of the local agency in the persons of Fiona and Eduard, the latter of whom accompanied us throughout our trip. There were no problems. There was courtesy and consideration throughout, combined with care and knowledge. How can I pick one thing out as 'good' or 'best' when EVERYTHING was perfection.
Worst parts:
1. Get Albania to deal with litter that disfigures so many of the beautiful spots they wish to attract tourists to. Fine people as we had to do here in the UK until people got the message - which they did quite quickly! 2. Do NOT let the ministry of tourism cover the exquisite Riviera area with concrete. They are in the process of destroying a national treasure, unique in Europe -- it's as I remember the French Riviera in the 1950s and 60s, but they are in danger of rendering it hideous at the cost of upmarket tourism and fitting only fr th slower end of the market. KEET AT LEAST SOME OF THIS TREASURE intact. PLEASE pass this on to the ministry of tourism. NB. I am happy to go out with them and tell them exactly what I men and how to stop the present devastation and begin the restoration. I have nothing to say about Evaneos or Eco Tours. They need no improvement!

As for t...Dear Ms Judith, I thank you very much about your commentary. It has been a pleasure for both Eduard and me, to have had you in Albania. I also feel very happy that we could meet in person. As for the improvements that you have mentioned, I would like you to know that we think and believe the same as you. Our work in this field is also related to the love that we have for our country, to its nature and culture. With our passion we try to show to the rest of the world the real Albania and to change the sometimes negative image that accompanies this place. We will forward your commentaries to your guide, Eduard, as well as to the ministry of Tourism, so that they can see things how we do see them and not only as business. Looking forward to reading your article FionaSee more
