Our History

It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been exciting!
In 2013 Braho brothers Isuf and Alket , started Berat City Tours only with a badge. Living in a historic area where many visitors where comming they start offering free tours . Showing the city to the guests through the eyes of 2 local teenagers. Learning from the guests different cultures ,different languages it was something fun.
Than 1 day Alket went to an internet caffe and printed a badge for Isuf – And there our history started with the Blue Badge madden from Alket where it was writen ” Isuf Braho Tour Guide”
Today we are known as Vato Tours operating a variety of tours from single day tours ,to extended tours through some of Albanian’s most remote and fascinating regions.
