It's a good trip but it's a heck of a long time on the road and we experienced a very slow border crossing in the morning.One of the three places we had booked to see was closed across December, due to the cold weather, so should never have been part of the offer at this time of year. (Our guide did take us to see the outside).Other two places were interesting, well presented by our guide. Our guide for the day, Christi, was very friendly, thoughtful helpful and upbeat and looked after us really well.

My guide, Claudia, was perfect to discover places where my family grew up. The rythm of the tour was great and she was as interesting as entertaining. More than 5 stars for the whole experience.

Another great tour with this company!

I had the luck to have the same tour guide, Christy and he recommended a lovely restaurant in the old town the lunch is not included in the price, by the way which had amazing food!

The history is amazing, you get to know so many things about the Bulgarian history during the trip!

By the way... Make sure you wear comfortable shoes!!

An interesting tour with breathtaking views! If you are going to Bucharest, defintely recommend a guided private tour to Bulgaria. I found Andrew knowledgeable and funny, providing me interesting details and historical reference for the Veliko Tarnovo which was Bulgaria's old capital.

We went by private car for this, which I highly recommend because the border could be quite long if there is a group going.
Our guide Valentine was outstanding!! Being a private tour with just me, my friend and our driver made for a nice leisurely day.
Our lunch was by far the best meal I had well on our trip.

This is an excellent tour. Constantine was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He showed me some incredible sights in Bulgaria. I would definitely recommend this private tour to anyone interested in seeing the northern region of Bulgaria.
