Gjirokastra Daily Tour From Tirana

One of our English speaking drivers will pick you directly at your hotel or in any other place in Tirana that you’ll require during the booking.

Your driver will be at your disposal throughout the whole day to answer any questions you may have and help you enjoy the best day tour possible. During the trip you will stop for a break to the Water Spring of Tepelena.

Walk down the narrow, cobbled streets of the town's medieval Old Bazaar famous that is for its Ottoman-style houses. Watch women working with wood and silver. Gain the unique experience of visiting the locals in their own homes and being treated to traditional, stone-ground coffee as well as 'Mountain Tea'.

Visit the Gjirokastra Castle and the historic Skenduli House that was built in 1700 in the Ottoman style. Taste regional food cooked by locals if you want to.

The daily tour will be customised to ensure that it matches your interests.

    In the shadow of the mid-18th-century Bazaar Mosque, the Gjirokastër Bazaar is known for handmade wood pieces, handwoven rugs and artisanal crafts such as delicate lace items. Nearby cafés selling pastries offer a nice break from negotiating the steep ups and downs of the stone streets.

    Stop At: Skenduli House, Rruga Sokaku i Te Mareve, Gjirokaster Albania

    Restored Ottoman-era Skenduli House has been in the hands of the same family for generations (apart from a few years during the communist period when the government took it over), and you'll most likely be shown around by a member of the family. Dating from the early 1700s, but partially rebuilt in 1827, the house has many fascinating features, including a room used only for wedding ceremonies and which has 15 windows, many with stained glass.
