    Great tour! And great job Diana! Buzludzha is very impressive!
    Diana was a great tour guide! She knew in depth the history of Bulgaria and even shared with us the personal stories of her family and how communism changed their lives. The tour was a lot of driving and Diana was a very good driver. About 30 minutes from Buzludzha she went over the history of the monument which was extremely impressive! Highly recommend this tour!

    Impressive caves
    The waterfall is small but pretty and a nice walk. Caves were awesome. Love h was a cute town but the people are not friendly…at least not to Americans. Our guide was informative

    Even better than expected!
    The guide Peter was very lovely, played good music, and was just a joy to be around. The local Macedonian guide was quick and efficient. He told us the most import highlights of the history and even treated us to a desert! Can highly recommend doing this tour!

    A must see.
    Michael was a brilliant guide, we were all well informed of the delights that awaited us. The trip itself was amazing, these awe inspiring cave which have been there for millennia are just beyond words. It was a very small group of six, on a really hot Bulgarian day, the air conditioning in the mini bus was such a treat.

    Well worth the long drive
    Rosen was our guide for the trip. Very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Picked up on time with a total of 7 of us. We had a phone call the night before asking if we would mind visiting 2 other caves so they could combine tours at no extra charge, but would mean trip wold be a hour longer so we did Krushina falls, Devetaki cave, Savea cave and eye of god cave. all different in their way. Only had a hour in Lovech town proper, but had a very nice meal as Rosen had pointed out 3 local restaurants

    Trip to macedonia for the day
    Great experience, I enjoyed the drive, and my tour guide from Bulgaria was very nice and accommodating. He allowed us to stop for a bathroom and snack break and always asked if we were alright throughout the drive!

    Interesting tour
    Positive is the excellent overview you get from plovdiv and surrounding in a short period of time. Good guide and driver also. However it is really hot in a packed minibus if you are a large person.

    Plovdiv definitely worth the drive
    Ivaylo was a terrific guide. Informative and friendly. Plovdiv is well worth traveling from Sofia to see and the tour allowed plenty of time to explore without feeling rushed

Very enjoyable, but a long day. Guide was very good and attentive to all requirements. Time in Skopje was a bit rushed but definitely worth seeing. Matka is probably best done in the summer months.

I was really lucky as the weather was nice and we had Vasko as our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and fun, being a historian. I actually learned a lot of regional history from him.

The drive to Skopje was quite long but not boring at all. We pulled over a couple of times to enjoy the views and to stretch our legs. Skopje was really nice, easy enough to walk around. We visited quite a few places with the help from our local guide Lina. We then took a boat trip in Matka Canyon to see the cave.

I really had a great time and would highly recommend this tour. Thank you so much Vasko!

Skopje has a nice square and market place , Mother Theresa memorial in a far away nation is close to every Indian’s heart and the natural beauty of Matka canyon just 25 km away is a icing in the cake and the tour guide is knowledgeable about the history of the region

Had an amazing time , our guide
Lubo was very knowledgeable about the local area and was very friendly and helpful
Skopje was a decent city but the highlight by far was the stunning Matka canyon
There is a great little restaurant there and the coffee is decent also
The boat trip to the cave gave stunning views
You also get to go inside the caves
