Communist tour
It was a brilliant tour. Gazi was a great guide - really knowledgeable but more importantly personal, flexible and humorous. We learned a lot and got a sense of things here. Really recommended.

Must do in Tirana
We really loved the tour, in just 2 hours you learn a lot about the city, its history, people and culture and see a lot of historic places and statues. You can ask whatever question you have and the tour is not dry and boring but really interesting. Also one of the guides (Eri) is really cute ;). You could really feel that he loves his job and history overall and know a lot about the city and the country. I would definitely recommend the tour to everyone who's visiting Tirana!

The walking tour took me in to the rich history of Tirana and Albania.
Gazi knows a lot about the city and its history. You encounter both important and small things that you would otherwise never have noticed. It's really worth it!

Great introduction to Communist Tirana

Great introduction to Tirana communist history by Gazi, the excellent guide.
I totally recommend this tour. Please feel free to ask him about other things to do. car rental, or other trips to nearby magnificent cities. He hooked us up, a group of friends, to the best local Tourist company Aria Travel Albania to do day trips and they organize great experiences. Thank you Gazi. you're the best

Gazi is a very good tour guide. He is calm and funny and friendly. we were a group of friends and he gave us a whole load of information, bur in a very simple and understandable way so after this tour we understood better the reality of Communism during Hoxha's time, but not only.
