Albania - Classic
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Albania - Classic cycling holidays...
Minaxi Patel, London, England, UK
This is my third redspokes trip and it came up to the same high standard as the other two. Our guide, Arjan, was excellent, very knowledgeable and passionate about his country, tirelessly attentive to everyone's needs and he had a great sense of humour. The route took us through spectacular scenery, the food was delicious, fresh and plentiful and the accommodation was always comfortable and I love the range from boutique to very rustic. The cycling was the best, challenging but manageable, a great way to see the country.

Another amazing Redspokes trip, this time to Albania with our wonderful guide Arjan who was very knowledgeable about the country and history of Albania. Scenery was beautiful including mountains/lakes and Albanian coast. It really gave you a insign into the country and the people along with delicious meditterean food and challenging cycling.

Thanks Dermot for helping me discover and appreciate new countries with cyclists who share the distinctive design of the redspokes experience. Lots of cycling, adventurous tours that attract adventurous people. I've had two redspokes tours and they were both fabulous.
Andy Green, Isle of Wight, UK
Amazing Albania. What a wonderful country. You are certainly well looked after on this tour. The food is excellent, the roads are quiet and the scenery is stunning!
Emma and David Smart, Bristol, UK
This was a great trip. The first trip with redspokes for my wife and I. Despite a flight delay, we were welcomed to the group meal and our first taste of healthy Albanian food. Meals were all arranged with communal food to take as much or little as you wanted. While it was hot cycling weather (it was summer, so expected to be hot), we were a fast and friendly group so able to get off the bikes in early afternoon to rest in the midday sun.
Armand and Arjan were very welcoming and were excellent tour leaders. The bikes were very well maintained with almost no mechanicals for any riders during the week. All the riders were great fun with lots of fun enjoyed over the odd drink in the evenings.
We are now working on which redspokes tour to do next.
Roger Troughton, Dorking, Surrey, UK
A great week - challenging yet with opportunities to relax - this was a real redspokes holiday! The route took us through some quite stunning mountain scenery over to the Ionian coast - and even that was far from flat! Well organised by very competent local crew, we enjoyed really good fresh food and a standard of accommodation that was much higher than I was expecting.
Katja Stille, Hackney, London, UK
Yet, again a fantastic holiday with redspokes. I didn't know much about Albania before booking the holiday and I have come home with a much better idea of the country and its history. On top of that the cycling was fantastic, beautiful climbs and exhilarating descents.
At the end of the day we were rewarded with a selection of tasty and fresh food that set us up for the next day. The days cycling along the coast held a the special treat of being able to cool down in the sea.
Corina Naughton, Dublin Ireland
The cycle group were really great, everyone got on well. Albania was interesting probably more developed than I was expecting. I loved that we had a chance to visit some of the ancient sites, even if a bit hot. Mountains were beautiful and swimming in the sea is a real bonus on a red spokes trip!
Robert Oddo, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan
Great views, warm friendly people and delicious food!!! Highly recommend.
Angela Thomas, Matamata, New Zealand
I cannot rate this tour highly enough. Arjan our guide was amazing. When my luggage didn't arrive in Tirana he followed up to see where it was and had it delivered to our hotel before the start of our tour the next morning. What a beautiful country and lovely people. There was quite a few undulations.
