Day cruise to Albania (Saranda & Butrint National Park price included)
  • Day cruise to Albania (Saranda & Butrint National Park price included)

    Our single-day cruise to the fascinating country of Albania is aimed at adventurous travellers seeking something out of the ordinary. From the Port of Corfu, we follow the Albanian coast to the city port of Saranda. A 20 km guided coach tour of the south coast’s virgin shores and scattered islands is available. We pass small picturesque villages and endless fertile plains that lead to a great lake. The highlight of your day will be a visit to Butrint – an UNESCO World Heritage site. Over the centuries, the ancient town had disappeared under layers of silt and vegetation. In recent years, however, archaeologists have uncovered some of the finest working town remains in the Mediterranean. The Venetian Tower near the entrance, the ancient theatre, the Temple of Asclepius, the ancient gymnasium, the Roman Baths, the Roman Baptistery with its priceless mosaic floor, the Lion gate and the enormous Cyclopean walls will transport you back in time from 2,500 years till the 3rd century A.D.

      Lovely day trip over to Albania, really nice guide, lunch was ok if basic, however organisation of buses coming back needs sorting . We sat waiting for other trips to join us, some where straight of an all day party boat, not enough seats, so someone had to come and sort it.

      We booked our trip 2 days in advance with transfer from and back to our hotel and called the company to get information on where exactly to be picked up. The ferry trip to Albania was comfortable. There was a bit of commotion when we arrived at the Albanian port with the police officer not wanting to let passengers access the busses waiting for us but direct us to the port terminal first. Our guide was full of historical and cultural information which he provided in excellent English and very good German. We had a light but delicious lunch that was included and an our free time after visiting Butrint. Upon arrival in Corfu you must go through customs and than find the correct that takes you to your hotel.
      I highly recommend it.

      We were impressed with how organised this tour was. We really enjoyed the picturesque boat trip to Saranda. Butrint national park was very interesting and has amazing views across the lake. Pleased we chose the Butrint option as there wasn't that much to do in Saranda. Everything was very organised and the staff were extremely friendly on this tour.
