Dear Lucy, First of all, thank you for coming to Plovdiv to visit us and for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and detailed review of your experience with us on your recent 3-day Plovdiv tour that featured wine tastings, beer tastings, a tour of Plovdiv and Old Plovdiv, a visit to Bachkovo Monastery, a traditional dinner at a folklore restaurant and plenty of rich Bulgarian food! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time in Plovdiv and we thank you for your positive feedback about our skills, knowledge and passion. We strive to ensure that our guests have a wonderful time and learn a lot about Bulgarian history, wine and food during their visit. You were very lucky to catch the mysterious kukeri traditions that take place only in the winter in Bulgaria. We always say that a food, wine and culture tour is great even in the winter as Bulgaria has many unique winter traditions. Thank you again for your recommendation! We hope to see you back in Bulgaria sooner rather than later. Best regards, Zina & Vasil Co-Founders of Bulgaria Wine Tours

Five of us did the full day tour and had a great time. The two wineries we saw were both excellent hosts and cared a lot about their wine and their customers. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. The only downside is the large driving distances involved. Over two

Dear James, Thank for leaving a review about your recent Full Day Wine Tour from Plovdiv. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the wineries and your Tour Leader. We hope that you gained some new knowledge about Bulgarian wines. We select our winery partners very carefully, and only take our guests to the best of the best. This is the first time we receive a comment about the distance between two wineries being too long as the tour voucher clearly mentions the timings. Unlike several other wine regions in the world, Bulgarian wineries are often not located close together in a cluster. A 45 minute - 1 hour driving distance between two wineries is very common in Bulgaria – especially when you are selecting the best wineries to visit. We like to think of ourselves as thoughtful and detail-oriented when we plan a tour, which is why we specifically chose the best wineries in the region. We also knew that at least two people in your group were highly interested in sustainability, which is why we chose the second winery to be a 100% organic winery. We hope to see you again on a wine tour of Bulgaria to discover more wines and grapes. Best regards, Zina & Vasil Co-Founders of Bulgaria Wine Tours

A friend of mine took this tour and highly recommended it so I had high expectations. But this trip far exceeded my high expectations. We wanted to tie the trip timing to a transAtlantic cruise. They offer defined tours but I asked for a tour that included specific things.

We booked a half-day visit from Plovdiv to a winery and a cultural centre. We requested a winery specialising in local grape varieties and a visit to Bachkovo Monastery, and this was arranged on our behalf. Zina was a very friendly and informative Tour Leader and we learnt much

Based on strong reviews, we contacted Bulgaria Wine Tours asking to visit small, organic/biodynamic vineyards using more traditional old-school techniques rather than more modern experimental labels. We were very pleased with the custom itinerary provided and would strongly
