    This tour was awful. Tour guide was good driver but awful tour guide. No knowledge of even basic facts. I could have given the tour
    and I had never been there. No explanations, no direction, had to get someone to tell her what basic monuments were to explain
    it to uspoor elementary explanations - this is the clock tower, I had never noticed it before. would not recommend, get another
    tour company. Just awful!

    Our day trip to Plovdiv was a big success. The guide, Todor, was very knowledgeable as he led us through the old city of Tremontium visiting several Roman sites. He also accommodated variations on the itinerary such as adding a tour of the Ethnographic museum. He took us to a good restaurant and, after lunch, on a comprehensive tour of Bachkovo Monastery. There he regaled us with an in-depth history of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church and showing us some beautiful frescoes and mosaics - some of which were not open to the public. Overall, my son and I really enjoyed the experience and we learned a lot. Thank you Todor and Viator!

    Very interesting - learned a lot about Bulgaria and its significant role in the Byzantine Empire. Lots of walking - be sure you have good walking shoes. Roman ruins very interesting - the theater made it all worthwhile. The monastery was OK, the Rila Monastery was a better choice.

    Our tour guide Metodiy Garchev was a fantastic tour guide who took the time to explain the history of Bulgaria from ancient times to the current post cold war era. His zeal and passion led us to have a great day and learn a lot from the 8 hours we had with him. I would definitely recommended booking with him and his company P group if you are looking for an in depth history tour of the country He also does the Vitosha Mountains hike and the RIla Monastery as well.
