- Difficult - there were so many. Probably the walk in the Valbona Valley on a glorious day with the stunning mountain scenery and woods and having mountain tea and raki with a local family in their remote farmhouse. Our walk through the attractive town of Prizren, with its fortress and narrow, winding streets alongside the river, was another highlight and watching the world go by as we sat having lunch in one of the pavement cafes. The wine tasting in and around Rahovec was also an enjoyable experience. Sitting on the shore of Lake Ohrid looking across the water to the mountains beyond was another highlight.Absolutely superb. He was very knowledgeable and interesting: we all learnt so much about Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia; not just about the history and archaeology but also the culture, way of life etc. As a native of Albania he was able to tell us all about the strong family links that Albanians retain. Endrit also coped superbly well with an accident that one of our group had, which involved getting her to hospital and then sadly, arranging for her to be flown back to her home in Italy. He was helpful at all times and nothing was too much trouble. He also had a very engaging sense of humour!
