Picked up from our apartment on time, friendly and welcoming driver & tour guide with extensive knowledge of the history of Plovdiv & Bulgaria. He was very informative as we walked around Plovdiv we had opportunities to take photographs as well as learn about the buildings, history and culture. Lunch was 3 courses of Bulgarian dishes, all delicious. The final stop at the monestry was surrounded by beautiful scenery and we learned about the art in the monestry as well as the history. Excellent English speaking guide, would definitely recommend this tour.

I had a great time on this tour. The booking process was very easy and quick. I had a great guide, Maria. She arrived at my hotel at exactly 8am as indicated in my voucher. She is very professional and knowledgeable about Plovdiv and Bachkovo Monastery as well as all the other sightseeing points in Bulgaria. She gave me a lot of information on Bulgaria’s culture and history. It was a very informative tour for me. She also took me to a very nice restaurant in Plovdiv for lunch with good food and reasonable prices. She is also a very good driver. I enjoyed my tour very much.

Probably the best tour in Bulgaria for someone who appreciates roman history. Plovdiv historic centre is beautiful and has a lot of interesting houses. The road to Bachkovo monastery is really nice too. Our guide Mariya was very knowledgeable. She is an excellent guide with a very plesant personality.
