What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Albania is ideal for cycling. Reasonable roads. Very little traffic. Just the right amount of challenge from the mountainous terrain. All the towns we stayed out were pleasant and interesting. Food is good. Beer cheap, excellent, and plentiful! Bikes were very good, and well maintained.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

The roller coaster bike ride by the edge of the Adriatic on the way to Qeparo was really enjoyable as was the experience of waking up in a log cabin in the solitude of the Albanian countryside.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Wonderful to be able to cycle through beautiful countryside on quiet roads. The food, beer and wine were consistently good and our tour leader helped us select local delicacies. Accommodation varied from farm stay to modern hotels. Everyone was clean and comfortable with hot showers and friendly staff. The country is full of contrasts: more Mercedes cars and petrol stations than in the UK but I only saw 1 tractor.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

It had to be when Gent so effortlessly beat Bob up a mountain, then went down again to support the others. Bob's face was a picture - he prided himself on always being first! But seriously, it was the whole experience - Albania was not what I expected it to be based on my total ignorance of the history, culture and its stunning countryside. Just wonderful scenery, exciting vistas round every bend and such fabulous value for money. Good standard of hotels and everything worked! Food was lovely and I tried some local menus which were delicious.

The cycling had some tough uphills but the downhills were spectacular. The roads were quiet. The food was great and excellent value for money. The scenery was beautiful and varied. The accomodation was fine and you always got a hot shower.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

The wonderful views from the coastal roads. The descents went on forever giving you that great to be alive feeling. The food is wonderful, very fresh and simple.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Our tour leader was excellent, Armand was intellectual, funny and very laid back. Armand was a part of the group not just a tour leader.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

For this trip you should be very fit, the ascents were many and tough. The descents were long and exhilarating making it all worth it. Albania is very unspoilt, expect a few pot holes on the roads at times.
