About
This tour will introduce you with local Tirana and its traditional food and cuisine. Tirana, an urban metropolis, full of contrasts in which can easily be noticed the scars from the past and the present. It is a city when fine delicate art of the beginning of the 20th century is mixed with cold rectangular shapes of the communism period and in between modern new buildings blooms. In this one Day Tour we will discover some of the most interesting part of the city combined with a lot of local flavors, interesting stories and friendly locals.

A must if you visit Tirana

We had a great time with our local guide Skerdi, specially enjoyed the local breakfast (very unique) near the Pazar i ri.

The tour is a great combo of Tirana history and local food, highly recommend!

Excellent food and excellent guide.
My guide was Xhulio and I couldn’t have asked for a better guide to tour the main central parts of Tirana. Extremely knowledgeable, not just about Albania but at one point we weee discussing computer servers and crypto currency even 😛
A thorough professional, he picked and dropped me at the hotel even when I assured him I can literally walk back after the tour :)
The food is really good and well selected. Something as a tourist I would have never have tasted or even located. It’s a bit pricey yes considering that Albania is generally a very inexpensive country but I think this food tour is worth it.

Historical Food Tour of Tirana
The host was very knowledgeable about Albanian cuisine and the history behind each of the dishes. We walked around the city with great conversation and full bellies. I recommend this tour if you love food, history and to get an overall Albanian experience!

Great introduction to food & culture of Albania!
Oct. 2019
Linda, my tour guide, was very knowledgeable & enthusiastic! We walked, explored & ate our way around the city trying everything from local byrek, a kind of spinach pie, to lamb stew, to mini lamb burgers, a drink w/ice cream & a pastry like baklava & even tasting Raki. Linda told me a lot about the culture of Albania & answered many of my questions too. My advice to you is to take this tour as a great introduction to Albania, but don't eat breakfast before you join the tour!

I had a wonderful day with Sindi, andis sister who welcomed me into their home, we tasted their dad's wonderful homemade wine and she showed me how to make a traditional dish and gave me a tour of the city she lives in. Wonderful to learn how a local lives her life. Thank you!

Wonderful and authentic experience in Tirana
Sep. 2019
I did the food and city tour in Tirana with Go as Local and it was truly a wonderful experience. Andi was an amazing host, not only showing historic facts of his city but also sharing traditions and cultural heritage through food and visits to the most important sights. I learnt a huge deal of a country and society I knew nothing about before my trip, so I truly believe this is the best introduction you can get to the thriving and exciting things Albania has to offer. We tasted several dishes, being the most surprising one, the Albanian breakfast! Treat yourself with a completely local experience!! Thanks Andi!!
