Holiday Options to feature Albania for 2010
23 September 2009
Tour operator, Holiday Options, is featuring Albania for the first time in 2010 with highlights of the programme including small group tours and, for more independent clients, the lively beach resort of Durres.
Announcing the introduction, director, Alan Brown said: “I held many misconceptions about the country but, following visits in June, I was amazed by the beauty, diversity and high stands of the accommodation, roads and general infrastructure.”
The company believes that, until Albania becomes more open, first-time visitors will want their hand held, hence the decision to offer guided tours devised specifically for Holiday Options.
Highlights of the seven-night two-centre ‘Mysterious Albania & Unknown Montenegro’ trip – which has exclusive departures between May and October - include a sightseeing tour of Tirana, the archaeological site of Apollonia – one of the most important heritage sites in Europe - the historical hilltop town of Kruje and the ancient city of Scodra.
Prices lead in at £755 per person (twin share) inclusive of return Gatwick, transfers, four-star hotel accommodation with breakfast, selected lunches and dinners, entrance fees and services of an English speaking tour escort. Regional departures are also available, supplements may apply.
For independent clients, the company is highlighting seven-night holidays at the four-star Hotel Adriatik Resort Hotel in the lively seaside town of Durres, home to international-style hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping malls.
Facilities at the hotel, which overlooks a stunning sandy beach, include large pool, tennis, fitness centre, Jacuzzi and sauna, along with a choice of bars and restaurants.
Available between April and October, prices range between £699 and £799 per person (twin share) for seven nights inclusive of return flights from Gatwick to Tirana, transfers and accommodation with breakfast.
