I was extremely lucky to have the tour by myself with Tsvetan, he taught me about the history and context of graffiti and street art and it was incredible to hear of his personal journey in this area for the last 16 years. The art was stunning, uplifting and full of talent. Loved this tour.

Very attentive and professional guide (biology, fauna, history ...) I would repeat.

Vladimir, our guide, with an exceptional command of Spanish, led a complete tour of the city and made us enjoy the gastronomy, architecture, archeology ... and the Bulgarian culture in general.

Very good guide

It explains the history of Bulgaria and takes you through the most important places in the City. Good Castilian and eager to explain the Bulgarian way of life.

Wonderful city tour with our amazing guide Kristian who knows how to make you love the history of this beautiful country. Absolutely recommended
