We were only two people with our guide Kamen. So it was kind of a private tour. He picked us up at our hotel with his car and took good care of us. He answered all our questions about Plovdiv and surroundings and Bulgaria in general. We had an excellent day in nature with a little bit of hiking to the fortress of Assen and to wonderful stone bridges. We also went to the beautiful monastery Batschkowo. Kamen is a friendly knowledgeable guide. This tour is highly recommendable when you are in Plovdiv.
Our guide, Stoyan (hope that’s spelled right), was amazing. He was so knowledgeable about everything Bulgarian and was patient with all our questions. He knew all the right places to stop and was in no hurry to get us home. It was an amazing day (even with the rain) in the beautiful Rhodope Mountains outside Plovdiv.
The guide, Bobbi, (I am sorry I don't know exactly the name, was a gentleman, generous, kind, educated, and so on. Thanks a lot to him.
Great day with a lot of new sights to rememeber. A nice and kind guide as well - who went far and beyond to give us the best tour.
The guide and driver were great! Excellent route - get a lot done! Fortress was beautiful and Plovdiv is a must see!
