Best way to discover Shkoder? The Free Walking Tour Shkoder for sure!
The free walking tour Shkoder is probably the best way to get you oriented and bring to your attention details that you wouldn’t have noticed if not told by locals.
We are currently in the low season and will be hosting this Tour only by advance booking online. Please contact us in advance and we will reach out to you as soon as we can.
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.
At the end they either end up spending more days or regret not having planned it otherwise. So if you are planning to visit Shkodra, consider in advance adding an extra day in Shkoder to your journey and don’t forget to reserve your “walking tour” with us.
How does the tour work? Unlike our other activities, in this tour our guides only payment comes from your tips. If you are familiar with the Free walking tour concept then you got it!
In other words, you decide what the tour was worth.
The starting hour of the tour is 10:00 am everyday at “Bashkia” Shkoder or the Town Hall, our guide will be waiting in front of the Municipality for you to show up. If you run a little late, you may find us at the park in front of the Town Hall heading toward Grand hotel Europa.
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.
