    Our first time in the region. The guide was on time, the van/bus was comfortable. They made stops for restrooms. Make sure to bring local currency to pay for the entrances, lunch and to purchase little gifts, not all stores accept credit card. The guide, Rodika, was very informative. The monastery was interesting, and the fortress was impressive. We had a great time.

    Our guide was Meto. He took us through the streets of Plovdiv, through Asen's Fortress, and a visit to the Monestary. Each step of the way, he engaged the group with the rich history, the tactics used for safety and shelter, and the representation of the beliefs in the artistry in the monestary. Meto has a way using stories and antecdotes to bring a glimps of history to life.

    An excellent tour to take if you are interested in parts of history not always known. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, a very safe driver, and prepared us well for the more gruesome sites (Tower of Skulls and Concentration Camp) we visited. The drive can be long, so make sure you have plenty of water and have some Euro to exchange at the Serbian boarder as they won't take the Bulgarian lev. This tour is a must for anyone interested in history!

    On 04.07. we had booked this Tour with the german speaking Philipp. It was a nice day Tour. Philipp was attentive and explained patiently. He took us to very beautiful places away from masstourism. Excellent! Lunch was at home with Mimi, a super friendly Bulgarian. We were made to feel very welcome and the food was plentiful and very tasty. There was no rush on the Tour and we were able to see and enjoy everything at our leisure. This Tour is highly recommended. And thanks for the nice Day Philipp!

    I had a wonderful time with
    her(,nice guide).
    While traveling by car, I heard about Bulgaria's geography and history. It was interesting.
    I took a walk while receiving a polite explanation of the city of Plovdiv.
    In wine tasting, I was able to enjoy it slowly.
    On the way back I stopped at Red Church and I felt like I had a time slip.
    It was very fun!

    私は素敵なガイドさんのおかげでとても有意義な時間をすごすことができました。
    車での移動中は、ブルガリアの地理や歴史のお話を聞くことが出来ました。プロブディフの街では、丁寧な説明を受けながら散策しました。
    ワインテイスティングでは、ゆっくりと自分のペースで楽しむことができました。
    帰り道に立ち寄ったレッドチャーチでは、タイムスリップしたような気分になりました。
    とても有意義な1日でした。

    Our tour with Alex was so fun, very informative he's a great guide with a lot of knowledge on the history. It was a little bit of a long drive though but very beautiful place. In Arbanasi there's also a chance to see local craft businesses e.g. pottery, woodwork, metal work which was very interesting.

    This is a place not to be missed. It has a certain about of charm and the artistry on the wall is immense/ strikingly beautiful. We went to the Rila Monastery and the Boyana trip for as the wine tasting tour is out of season at the moment. Michael the tour guide looked after us and explained the history of the place. We went in February and it even snowed. They also stop for lunch at a quaint restaurant that had a fire. Try the fresh trout if you like fish.
    Definitely a lovely trip to go on.
