This is one of the best hiking tours I’ve ever done so far. Kevin, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Because it was a little bit early in the season, there’s still a lot of snow in the summer path, thankfully Kevin knows how to navigate around without it being too dangerous. The ferry ride was incredibly beautiful. Valbona is like straight out of a fairly tale. Theth feels like a movie set. Doesn’t look real. Would definitely do this tour again in a heartbeat!
