We’re very glad to be able to talk about our project “Albanian Vibes”. We were not really expecting this to become a real business. This was basically something we did just for passion until it started to become our main activity, while we still had to go at work...and yes, on the other side our university studies. It was impossible to be managed with the tips that our guests were giving, for which we are so grateful. So at some point we thought why not to turn our passion into our profesion, and that's what we did. We decided to call it "Albanian Vibes" because that's what we want to share with you... not showing how beautiful is that and that place or building, but sharing vibes with you, the Albanian vibes: Sharing Albania as we locals live it. We want to share the history of Albania, focusing on the stories and experiences. We want to bring innovation into doing business in tourism, we want to bring modern and unconventional tours. That's our aim!

What people are saying about Audio Guides in Tirana
The truest face of Communism
"I was only in Tirana for 48 hours and this day trip was a great way to get a personal experience and insight into the evolution of Tirana and the Albanian culture. I had not realised some of the very interesting history and our guide Leo gave great care of the tour and made it an experience to remember! I especially liked the bunker tours and it was much better having Leo talk me through it, rather than just reading the labels. If you are in Tirana then check it out!"..."

"My driver arrived at my hotel a bit earlier than expected. But it's ok, I heard traffic in Tirana especially in the morning could be challenging. He speaks very good English so we spoke about different subjects along the way."..."
