    A top experience

    We had a great day out with Ilia our driver/guide. Ilia was punctual, courteous, spoke English fluently, very knowledgeable & shared his country’s history with passion. He was very flexible with time, allowing us to nominate how much free time we had after our guided tour of Plovdiv. It was a perfect day out. Highly recommended by all in our group.

    Great visit

    The trip to Plovdiv is very well organized: the visit of the city in a "small circuit" way is pleasant, we visit the most significant places while enjoying the atmosphere of the city. The guide is clear, gives interesting anecdotes and good addresses, and presents some hidden sites of the city. My only regret is that the free time of visit has been shortened, but this remains completely independent of the organization (road accident). In addition, being in a small group allows you to ask questions and have a real discussion with the guide (and the rest of the group). I highly recommend this visit !!

    Lachezar was a wonderful guide! It was a small group tour where he showed us around the lovely old town area of Plovdiv. He clearly knows his history of the area and Bulgaria in general. I truly appreciated him getting to know each of us and our interests to make the trip more special. I would highly recommend this tour - especially if you have the chance to have Lachezar as your guide...his humor, story telling, and genuine charming personality will surely win you over!
