Visit Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa on a full-day trip from Sophia, and discover the art and architecture of two iconic Bulgarian cities. Stroll the narrow lanes of Plovdiv’s old town, and discover historic traces of the Romans, Thracians and Byzantines who swept through this region. Continue to Koprivshtitsa for a walking tour to the homes of the city’s most storied residents, and learn how a local revolutionary committee freed Bulgaria from Ottoman rule during the Russo-Turkish war before ending your tour in central Sophia.
A most enjoyable, almost 12-hour, trip with a very knowledgeable guide. Even the traveling time between the two sites was used to provide interesting historical background. Well worth the price! Koprivshtitsa is a village with some well-preserved original dwellings with historical connections. Plovdiv is a city with all the historical buildings and scenery one would expect to see.
Beautiful scenery and the excellent guide made this a great day trip from Sofia. The group was small and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Martin is an excellent driver/guide. Knows Bulgarian history and the area very well. His English is excellent. We are very pleased with the trip.
An excellent tour - brilliant guide, most informative. Highly recommended.
Fantastic Tour-Guide Alex arrived in good time, very friendly and welcoming, remembered everyones names and introduced us at each pick up point. Very knowledgeable and went out of his way to help everyone. 8 of us on the tour and all very nice and interesting people.
two lovely places.
It has come to a point now that as soon as I have booked a break I go straight to Viator to see what tours are available, these guys know their stuff
it was a great tour, the tour guide speaks very good English and was very informative. We started from the old town entry and were amazed at what you saw. Plovdiv worths couple days of staying there wondering about. Koprivshtitsa is a well-preserved mountain top village, personally I would go back for a vacation of couple weeks.
Excellent value tour. Saw the historic basics of each location, and still had free time to boot. Guide was professional and informative. Recommended.
Nice trip, thanks!
Great guide and great locations.
Great tour, highly recommended. We were newly arrived in Sofia, a little jetlagged from our plane trip from the U.S. plane trip, and we were looking to explore some more remote historical sites before we dove deeper into Sofia, and before we headed out to the Black Sea Coast. Our host Nik was incredibly knowledgeable and a fun guy--he provided great historical context to the amazing sites in Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa. It was a bonus to have someone else do the driving...in a Wi-Fi equipped car. Do this tour if you're in Sofia for a few days...you'll go home with some great photos and memories, and it'll be a nice complement to your city adventures. Chris and Mary/Seattle
