Tour operator Holiday Options is preparing to expand its travel ideas in Albania in 2010.
Highlights of the programme are set to include small group tours and, for more independent clients, the lively beach resort of Durres.
Announcing the introduction, director, Alan Brown said: “I held many misconceptions about the country but, following visits in June, I was amazed by the beauty, diversity and high stands of the accommodation, roads and general infrastructure.”
The company believes that, until Albania becomes more open, first-time visitors will want their hand held, hence the decision to offer guided tours devised specifically for Holiday Options.
Highlights of the seven-night two-centre ‘Mysterious Albania & Unknown Montenegro’ trip – which has exclusive departures between May and October – include a sightseeing tour of Tirana, the archaeological site of Apollonia – one of the most important heritage sites in Europe – the historical hilltop town of Kruje and the ancient city of Scodra.
