Skopje & Prizren + 3-day Albanian Alps Tour

Travel Forums Europe Skopje & Prizren + 3-day Albanian Alps Tour

Hi. I’m going to Macedonia, Kosovo and Albania in September. I’ve done a lot of research but there is a lot of conflicting information on websites, the latest Balkans LP is from 2009 and none of the In Your Pocket guides have been updated for a while. So… I’m was hoping that somebody who has been to these places recently might be able to help me.

1. Skopje – Prizren Bus: What are the departure & arrival times and how much does it cost?

2. Prizren: I’d like to spend 1 day exploring the surrounding area. Are there any companies I can book a tour with? If not and I do it independently, can you recommend where / what to see and give me an idea of public transport options & times?

3. Tirana – Skopje Bus: What are the departure & arrival times and how much does it cost?

Finally, I'm doing this 3 day tour tour starting in Prizren (but you can also join in Tirana on the same day) on Sunday Sept 8th. It includes 2 nights staying in and around Valbona with local families (home-cooked food), a day's moderate hiking in the Valbona Valley and a 2.5 hour ferry ride on Lake Koman (which from what I've read is spectacular and a bit like the Norweigan fjords). The tour finishes in the afternoon of Tuesday 10th Sept and costs 150 Euros. Including me, 3 people have booked so far, but they will only guarantee departure when they have 4. Does anyone fancy doing this trip with me?

Thanks,

Phil
