We meet our tour guide in Bucharest then it was long day trip to Bulgaria. Our group was 8 people from various places and none of us need Visa for enter into Bulgaria but the waiting was long at the entrance. Our tour guide were very friendly and very knowledgeable of both Bulgaria and Romania. Due to our group of 8 I feel that my friend and I would better of booking private tour, We would get more out of our tour. View from fortress Veliko Tomono was beautiful plus we have beautiful clear weather. Climb to the cave of Basarabov were steep for a person short legs like me but I made it. View from the cave looking down the valley with river below running and native of Bulgaria fishing for trout was very relaxing made me want to spend a whole day there with picnic basket and blanket. I recommend private tour and stay over night in Bulgaria to fully enjoy little charming town below Veliko Tomoto fortress. Thank you Viator for this trip!!!

This is a very relaxing tour except the stay on the border between romania and bulgaria where we stoped more than one hour each way. Marius our guide he was a litle shy at the begining but at the end the small group in this trip made it different and joyfull.
