I visited plovdiv from a recommendation and heard about the free walking tours. Dess was our guide and she was very friendly and passionate about her country. The weather was rubbish but her enthusiasm still showed throughout. Her knowledge of the city was really good and at the end of the tour a few of us went to grab a... More

We had very knowledgeable Kathy as our tour guide. She was charming and gave us a comprehensive overview of the fascinating city of Plovdiv. The tour was fun and lighthearted but gave us all the facts. As a little bonus we were given Baba Maritza wristbands to celebrate spring every time we got a question right. I would recommend this...

We had a very nice weather during the tour, -2 and the sun was shining for the whole day. Our guide Stefan knew a lot about the city and he told us many funny details about it and the people living there. The city itself was very pretty, and without a tour like this you would miss out big chunks... More

This is a must if you visit. It's free and takes you round places you probably wouldn't find on your own or even know about. We went on 31/01/17 and had 9 in our group. Was also snow everywhere so made everything so pretty. Guides are all local and know their stuff.

I did this tour on 21 January with Pavel. It was excellent and he was very well informed. He pointed out things that I would never have noticed by myself and gave all sorts of interesting information about the city and its history. I loved the place Pavel took us to with the superb view! I would encourage anybody who... More

I did the walking tour on 31 January and found it to be one of the most informative walking tours I've done. Considering the letters and text across different landmarks in Plovdiv will mean little to someone who can only understand Englishtext, the walking tour is worthwhile. Monica gave in-depth insight into each of the attractions/sights we visited. Theis would... More

It lasts about 2.5 hours. Our guide, Dess, was very informative and enthusiastic. Whilst it is a free tour, any financial donation is always welcome, bearing in mind that the guides are mainly students.
