Full description
This one day tour to Bulgaria starts and ends in Bucharest from any place or hotel you desire. It takes approximately 12 hours so an early start is always recommended. You will cross one of the biggest and most impressive rivers in Europe, the Danube River, that forms the border between Romania and Bulgaria. There, you will visit and learn about the Basarbovo Monastery, the traditional Bulgarian village of Arbanasi and Veliko Tarnovo, the former capital of the mighty medieval Bulgarian Empire and now probably the most beautiful Bulgarian city. On request, there are many nice restaurants that can be recommended for lunch. The tour is guided by an English-speaking, well-educated young licensed guide.

Excellent day, well worth money. Angelica was our guide and she was so friendly and helpful throughout the day. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. We really enjoyed it. We forgot to organise currency for Bulgaria but it wasn’t a problem as there was a place at the border to exchange lei, also very cheap there.

Superior personal service

We were very surprised that the tour was just our family. Angelica picked us up promptly at the arranged time and gave us an excellent tour of the sights covered in the tour. She was friendly and knowledgable about our route and recommended a lovely restaurant for our lunch break. We recommend this tour as a way to see the country and not just the city while in Bucharest .

Engaging, informative, awe-inspiring and humbling experience

Totally worth a day trip, Daniel is a genuinely sweet and extremely knowledgeable guide, who felt more like a co-passenger. Definitely recommend this trip.
