Our Tours

Since its foundation TAB Travel has been guided by its restless exploration drive, which is why the main focus of the company has always been on remote and unexplored destinations. We believe that the encounters with distant and completely different cultures and landscapes have an extraordinary enriching influence on every traveler, which is why our main goal is to offer our clients exciting and unforgettable experiences.
Entering the Albanian market, our goal has been to reveal some of the most exotic destinations to the Albania & Balkan travelers on an affordable price.
As we believe that what makes a journey truly unforgettable is not only the destination but the overall experience, we always try to organize our trips in a way that includes maximum interaction with the local communities, as well as with the surrounding landscapes that we encounter during our travels.

Accommodation

During our tours we look for accommodation in small and middle-sized hotels, providing all the necessary sanitary conditions and comfort for a multi-day stay. Accommodation is important for us and we carefully chose and test our overnight locations, however it is not the main goal of our trips, which is why you should not expect to be housed in luxury hotels and spa retreats during our trips.

Tour leaders and local guides

We believe in the key role of the guide for every trip, which is why we prioritize on sending guides who can also work at the company, knowing the routes and the logistics of each of our trips.
Being adventurous and highly experienced in the tours we offer, our guides are the factor that unites each group and ensures the smooth conduct of our trips.
Most of our distant destination tours include local guides with profound knowledge on their corresponding areas, whose quality we track through the constant feedback of our customers, which we strongly adhere to for each aspect of our trips.

Responsible Travel

We take responsible travel very seriously and endeavor to minimize the impact of our tours, and contribute to local communities.

Restaurants

Likewise, we make a point of eating at smaller restaurants, or with local families in villages en route.

Picnic lunches

We buy produce for our tours from street markets and small local shops, not supermarkets.

Litter & Waste

Albania, like most of the Balkans, has a trash problem. We leave no plastic or paper waste behind on our tours – we take only photos and leave behind footprints. We try too to educate locals on the importance of responsible waste disposal (an uphill task…). On trekking tours we provide zip-lock plastic bags to keep toilet paper till it can be disposed of properly.

Local Suppliers

By their very nature, most of our tours travel through extremely remote areas. Here we make a point of buying services from locals. This makes a small but positive impact in the villages, and makes for a better experience for our clients.

Our clients

Our trips are designed for curious people, willing to explore places and cultures; totally different from the ones they spend their everyday lives. Our tours do not require any specific and intellectual preparation – all we expect from our clients is open mindedness and will to encounter something new, unusual and interesting. The tours we offer are suitable both for small and middle sized groups, without any age limitations.
