To the unlearned tourist, indeed, Albania is a puzzle of the highest order

Who we are?
Our Own Expeditions was established over 25 years ago. We are a boutique travel operator that executes best practices and geotourism principles. We are passionate about sharing the history, food, wine, art, music and natural wonders of our country with the “Thinking Traveler.” We believe people that visit Albania are truly curious, interested and adventurous. So whether you are a historical enthusiast, like to dabble with adventure, experience the local culture or feast upon a true “farm to table” food experience, we create those moments. Our ongoing preservation efforts reinforce our deep commitment to historic preservation, authenticity and sustainability. We are excited to share with you our VIP tours and programs designed for our guests with utmost confidentiality. We will make your trip your own experience, your own expedition.
We understand the reason one visits Albania, so we work hard at trying to preserve the very same thing you’ve come to experience first hand…our land, traditions and heritage.
Peek Inside our countryPeeking inside our country will entice you to see more! You won’t be able to experience everything in one visit, but it’s a start.
Albania’s landscape ranges from high peak mountains, gorges, valleys, river, lakes to an endless countryside. Geotourism helps us protect these natural wonders.
Are you a thinking traveler?Our guests are typically well traveled individuals. They want to experience the culture, history, and natural beauty of one of the last former-communist countries to open up its borders. Step back in time and catch a glimpse of what still remains of an authentic Albania.

What Our Guests Are Saying
I am late in writing this, but wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed our tour of Gjirokastra with your guide Matilda. Our Cunard cruise on the Queen Victoria was supposed to go to Ephesus, but with the tension in Turkey we went to Albania instead. We knew nothing about Albania before the trip and learned so much from Matilda. The countryside was beautiful and Gjirokastra was great. I have recommended your tour and especially Matilda to friends and family. I hope to get back to Albania sometime so see more of your country.Amy U. - November 2016
