5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

I was extremely satisfied with this all-day tour. We got to see Bulgaria in a confortable small bus in a group of only 5 people. The guide was very attentive and informative. He recommended a very good restaurant that was delicious and affordable plus, it had great views of a fort. I will definitely recommend this tour from Bucharest.

Our tour guide for this trip was Valentin. He was very courteous and knowledgeable, he spoke good English.

Our visits to the Holy Rock Church, Veliko Tărnovo and Arbanasi were outstanding and I highly recommend.

Tour started at 8am and we were back in Bucharest before 7p

This was a really interesting tour and our guide, Valentin, was great! The 3 sites visited are beautiful. We learned so much about the history of Romania and Bulgaria, and even had a traditional Bulgarian lunch.

Friendly, knowledgeable tour guide. Stops included early 4th century church with dragons and zodiac among interior religious paintings. Also enjoyed rediscovered cave monastery in high cliff wall.

Gabriel was our tour guide and he was absolutely phenomenal! Visiting Northern Bulgaria was a real treat and the sites visited were interesting and well planned. These were really off-the-beaten-path locations and they met or exceeded all my expectations. The church carved into the side of a mountain had some amazing frescoes! All day... well worth the time and price!!

Wow. Spectacular tour with a great guide, Gabriel. The Ivanavo rock church was just fascinating. Veliko Tamovo was also very interesting. I enjoyed every portion of this tour, including our third passenger. It was nice to hear her perspective too. The lunch was also great and tasty.

It's a pretty nice tour. The town of Tarnovo is very beautiful. The best thing about the trip though was our guide Valentine who was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful and friendly. He made our trip very enjoyable. The worst part was the long wait at the border for passport control.

Very nice and helpful guide Daniel but we spent too much time crossing the bridge between Romania and Bulgaria!


1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2016

poor tour guide and more like a baby sitter with few guide skills. Not a very good tour company partner for you.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this April 2016

The is an unfair rating, but the only way I have to relate our experience. This Day Trip would perhaps be a great two-day trip, but as it is the trip involves sitting in a car for about 8 to 10 hours and visiting the sights for about four hours. So, in fact, we bailed out and did not complete the trip, wasting our money and time. Too bad.
