The only bad thing about this tour is that it made us wish we could have stayed longer in Plovdiv!!! We only had the day there and the tour was an excellent way of seeing as much of the place as possible and learning a lot in a short space of time. It's one if the shorter walking tours that...

A great walking tour if you want to know some history and a little bit more about the town. Best of all it is free or you can choose to donate a little which is highly recommended. Our guide was great and very interesting you could tell she was passionate about her town. Well worth doing.

Very interesting tour and our guide told everything with lots of enthusiasm. We learned a lot about the history and traditions of Bulgaria, and, in particular, Plovdiv. Highly recommend it!

Vessy, our guide, was a little surprised about the number of waiting people, but she managed to keep the group together and stick to the stated 2 hours. We walked along the shopping street... More

I found the leaflet advertising the tour at the reception in our hotel. Meeting at the Post Office at 18:00, Chris introduced herself as our guide, and asked us to fill in a short form. The group was made up of people from a very wide spread of countries. Chris is a very competent guide, and made everyone feel at... More
