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!
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
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.
