Great experience overall, a nice tour by a young team. Adi was a very pleasant and helpful guide, we learned a lot of interesting info about Plovdiv's history in 2 hours while wandering around the city's main sights. Definitely recommended.

This tour is worth the time and effort. Elijah was the tour guide and was very knowledgeable, made sure your questions were answered, and was very engaging. I will do this again when my friends come to visit.
