This was my second tour with Ventsislav, and like with my first trip, I felt in very good and safe hands. Although no others joined the tour that day, Ventisislav went ahead with it, which means I received undivided attention. He is very accommodating in terms of organising stops and the sequence of the visit. He will even go out of his own way to show you other things on the way, if there is a possibility to do so. He is very honest and open, which means you can talk and discuss any topic. Bachkovo monastery was very beautiful and interesting, despite being a well known tourist attraction. We were lucky to arrive relatively early at Asen fortress before other tourists arrive, which added to the atmosphere of these mountainous region. Ventsislav will also make sure you see what interests you the most in Plovdiv. He is very considerate and a very good driver. I'm glad I chose him for both my tours outside Sofia, and you won't regret it either.

Great tour! Venti was fantastic, patient, knowledgeable and interesting, the tour was the highlight of my stay in Sofia. There were only three of us which made it all the more fun and very flexible. Saw and learned a great deal from Venti which I would not otherwise have been able to do. Highly recommend

Plovdiv is worth a visit. City with a very well maintained and beautiful old part. Wonderful homes. The Asen fortress is quite curious and is set in a beautiful mountain landscape. Bachkovo Monastery, despite not being the most beautiful in Bulgaria, is definitely worth a visit.

The tour was very good, the guide was very friendly, the places were terrific. Its a little tired, but it was worth it.

Great day out, Plovdiv is lovely and our guide Plamin was great, very helpful
