In this tour our guide will help you explore the heart of Shkodra and orient you to better understand its people, its traditions, and its history. We often hear from travelers that they had no expectations from Shkoder as a town and they didn’t plan to stay longer here.

Free Walking Tour Shkoder

We do suggest making a request by email and not just show up without an advance notice.  

The length of this tour is approximately 2 hours, and we will cover the center of the town, not the main pedestrian road but rather secondary roads around it.

Rozafa castle is not part of this tour since the distance to cover is too long and will end up prolonging the tour for more than 4 hours. We offer the Rozafa Castle at a different time. 

In the Free Walking Tour Shkoder we will cover Shkodra during the Albanian Independence period, the comunist regime, the anti comunist movement in Shkoder but also we would talk about the diverse religions in town and about all what makes Shkoder unique in the aria the “biking lifestyle”.

Every year we have thousands of travelers that join us in this tour. We highly suggest you attend it.

    Great tours
    “We did 3 tours with this company, the free walking tour, cycling around the lake and Rozafa castle. We contacted them a few days in advance and they were very responsive and flexible to arrange our tours. All tours were great with some very knowledgeable guides and good information on Albanian history and culture. The same people also own a juice bar where it’s nice to sit down and order some fresh juice (difficult to get in Albania).”

    One of the best tours I’ve experienced
    “Aleyna gave me and the others such a detailed and fun tour that time blew by so quickly I didn’t even notice. She was warm, welcoming, funny, and most importantly, knew how to engage with everyone in the group. I’d give it 6 stars if they’d let me.”

    Good free walking tour
    “We did the free walking tour with Kiri Adventures and it was really interesting. We walked in parts of town we hadn’t seen before even though we were in Shkodër a few days already. The tour guide answered all our questions about Albania and Albanian culture. Would highly recommend!”
