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.
Martin was a great guide with a great sense of humor. Very professional and knowledgeable. We were lucky to have him as our guide!
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.
I had a great day on this trip,two worthwhile places to visit.I must give a special mention to our fantastic guide Met.I enjoyed the tour immensley made better thanks to MET who must i say had to deal with some rather awkward fellow travelers whose knowledge of the areas was fantastic.Plovdiv is a real jewel a must see place for all the great history.
Very beautiful and interesting excursion.
The programm was respected, bus and drivers were ok.
Guide was professional with good english
If you're in Bulgaria it is not to miss!
Our tour was great, the guide was very knowledgeable and showed us lots of very nice places and told us about the history.
Although it's a long day this trip was enjoyable and informative. Our guide was very knowledgeable as well as being a very good driver. Well recommended
Awesome tour, well worth your time! Martin was our guide for the day, hes very knowledgeable, funny, kept us on track, and was also flexible to provide options for members of the group who wanted to backtrack to see a sight. My husband and I really enjoyed our day on this tour, we appreciated the contrast of seeing Plovdiv, an urban center, with the town setting of Koprivshtitsa. Getting a small taste of the culture and history in both locations made for a delightful day!
were lucky, we were more than five, so besides the driver we got a very nice guide with us, Dafi, who explain a lot about Bulgaria during the trip and Told many stories in Plovdiv and koprivshstitsa. We spent a very enjoyable day with her, she knew when to let us sleep on the bus, when to tell the stories, when to spend 20 more minutes in a place and to leave. Everything run smoothly with her. She was able to take care of the needs of the group.
This was a fun tour, well guided, nicely paced and full of interesting sites and historical and architectural commentary. We fully enjoyed ourselves and recommend the trip unreservedly.
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.
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
