Great day tour

We were a small group of 6 people attenting the tour and were hosted by Philip who gave us explanations about everything we saw on our way to both places. The time allowed in Koprivshtitsa is just what's needed if you want to see all the museums houses and the town is absolutely lovely. We had more than enough time to join the great free Plovdiv walking tour so it was just perfect to get a first idea of this beautiful city. A guided tour or an audioguide in Koprivshtitsa would have been nice as the information provided is only in bulgarian but we knew the tour only included the transportation. Maybe it's an option available in the summer as I believe it's a popular place we had the luck to have only for ourselves on this beautiful december day. Thank you again Philip for this great day out !

The guide picked us up at the hotel and made the trip very enjoyable. It's actually something more like a taxi that later leaves you planes in the places you go. Even so, the visit is highly recommended
