Extremely interesting, a small group off 4 made it very easy to ask questions and the guide was very knowledgeable. Extremely good value for money as well.

The trip to Bulgaria's second biggest city was absolutely great. I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone having a day to spare on their trip to Bulgaria. It's well worth the visit.

A long drive from Sofia, and then quite a bit of walking uphill. The historical sites were quite fascinating, and the guide was personable and able to share a lot about the history of the area. This tour was unexpectedly a highlight of my visit, and strongly recommended. Also, the restaurant we visited for lunch exceeded expectations. A very nice day!

This tour just got better and better by the hour. After a week exploring Bulgaria, I took this tour on my last day to see some last minute sights and it was the perfect end to a Bulgarian trip. Martin was a great tour guide - he gave us space to explore and ask questions, but had tons of information when we were at a site worth talking about. A nice bonus to the tour was that it wasn't all historical information Martin let you know a nice street to walk down on your own, which cafe's to avoid, the best place to grab a cold beer and even stopped into a few shops along our tour so we could pick up gifts to bring home. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer. Its a full day tour, but I never felt tired - there are plenty of hours in a comfortable bus driving through the sunflower fields, mountains, and villages of Bulgaria. You could easily nap or just watch the countryside out the window. I was very impressed with this tour. Highly recommend.

Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa were both charming and made for a really interesting contrast and complement to the more urban Sofia. I definitely recommend this trip. It is good value. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

Plovdiv was excellent - a lot nicer than I expected. Our tour guide took us to a beautiful restaurant. Koprivshtitsa was very interesting. It was nice to see another side of Bulgaria.
