This was an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helped us enjoy the town of Plovdiv. The ruins are spectacular and the small town itself is quite beautiful. We would highly recommend this tour.

This was an all day trip that was well worth the time and money. Excellent guide. Very interesting ancient city.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

I opted for hotel pick up and drop off, which made me feel way more comfortable being alone in a new country. Tzvetomir was wonderful from the very beginning, and the car ride was great, chatting with him and the other people exploring Plovdiv. He knew a ton about the area and he helped take photos with my camera. 10/10, would definitely recommend!
