About
Visit the most elegant city in Bulgaria, Ruse. Due to its prosperity in the 19th century, the city acquired a pronounced central European look and was even titled a “Little Vienna”. You will start exploring Ruse from the Freedom Square, adorned with beautiful little park and fountains, the square still preserves the ambience of the old times. Bulgarian rich history and traditions will be revealed to you during the visit to Ruse Museum of History. It occupies a former local court building and has an exposition of around 140 000 items. Roman Fortress of Sexaginta Prista, overlooking the Danube, was once a mighty strategic Roman fort. Our guide will walk you through centuries of history to bring the place back to life. Lose track of time when visiting the oldest church of Ruse - Holy Trinity Church, constructed during the Ottoman rule and aiming to be as unobtrusive as possible, it goes below the ground level. The tour will end in a relaxing walk on the Danube Riverbank.

My husband and I took this tour to fill in a day in Bucharest. We enjoyed the city of Ruse, the museum, and the town square.

Our tour guide Roberto was amazing, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. He made our tour enjoyable and fun.... definitely one of the best tour guides we’ve had so far during our travels around the world.

5 star rating to Roberto!!!

The transportation was good, small van, good AC, and we stopped to get water, snacks, and use the restroom (not a long trip from Bucharest to Ruse which is great).

We visited a few places during the tour and got some free time to walk around the main square... we did some good & very affordable souvenir shopping (thanks to the recommendation from Roberto)... all in all a good experience.

Thanks Roberto for a fun day!

A relaxing day in Russe for approximately 8 hours, but at the same time a place where history is still written. We were very impressed to find out that the fortress that we have visited, still have things that only a few years ago were discovered. Rodika, our guide, was very knowledgeable, friendly and she was with us the entire day and recommended us where to eat and where to go in our free time. We really appreciated how things went, like organizing, pickup.
I really recommend this company. They are the BEST!! Can’t wait to come back!
