About Us

Experts in Balkan tours



We started out in 1991 when Albania became a democratic country. My father had worked previously during the communist period as Head of Tourism Office for Northern Albania so it was ‘natural’ for him to continue his work in the private sector for the upcoming years.



My father came up with the idea of naming the company after me and my sister so:  Sonja & Dorien becomes: Sondor.



We started offering tours and transportation mostly to Albanians. In time we changed from an outbound company to an inbound one, focused in Adventure Tours in Albania and Western Balkan.



Being born and raised in the Albanian Alps and having an extensive knowledge about tourism, especially for Albania, has created in us the desire to share what we know with lots of enthusiast travellers worldwide. So now we provide different adventure tours in such as: Walking, SnowshoeingMutli-Activity, Cycling and Cultural Discovery in Albania and Western Balkan.

Sondor Experience

For us it is very important to have a safe and secure drive. We want our clients to have the best driving experience. Thats why our drivers are chosen based on their driving experience around the Balkan

Why choose us?

We spend a lot of time personally knowing in depth and continually upgrading our selection of accommodation facilities, restaurants, transportation and guides we work with. This has helped us know exactly what to offer to different requests we process every day.
