Truly a most amazing experience and was a wonderful surprised to us! Very worthwhile tour!
George was a brilliant guide, really giving us a personalised tour and answering all questions from Bulgarian history and folklore to advice about Balkan winter sports!. Plovdiv was lovely, a mix of the ancient and the modern I highly recommend it to anyone who likes history or just wants to see some cool stuff. I really enjoyed the monastery too, with its serene atmosphere and living history. Definitely go on this tour - it's worth every stotinki :
Fantastic tour. Our tour guide Nikolay was very friendly, knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. Plovdiv is a beautiful city with an interesting history and is a must see when travelling Bulgaria. Bachkovo Monastery is also beautifully set in a wooded valley and is well worth seeing. Recommend!
Nice trip with a friendly tour guide, with some nice stories and tips about places visited. Enough time to walk around and enjoy the visit.
Plovdiv is very interesting and worth visiting. A very nice city. Bachkovo Monastery had its feast celebrated on the day but the very good guide we had got us in from a side door avoiding the queue. It was rather chaotic but should be quieter on other days.
It turned out to be a private car tour - 3 guests and the driver/guide Martin who was very good. Picked up from hotel and dropped back - full day tour some free time ..... weather was bad but that's not the tour company fault and I fell down on the cobble streets in the rain, again not the tour company fault - not a good tour for hard of walking though - recommended
Lovely to see the old city of Plovdiv and was obviously easier to take the transfer as part of the tour than make our way there. We did feel it was a little over priced as we would have liked more historical depth in the tour and although the monastery was pretty it was a little underwhelming. Overall definitely worth seeing Plovdiv.
The trip was great. Plodiv is beautiful. I hope to go back again. But the seats of the vehicle is not comfortable at all. It hurts my back.
