  • Nick was the man!!! it was just he and I on the day, and we had a wonderful time. He is very knowledgeable, easy going and very talented, too. We even made up a new song together: Plovdiiiiiiiiiiv Vibratiiiiioooon, yeah!!

  • Driver / guide was on time and very informative.

  • This was an excellent and detailed tour...around 10 hours in length, but well worth spending the time. Our guide, Todor, was very knowledgeable and took us all around the lovely city of Plovdiv....which effortlessly mixes ancient ruins within a bustling, modern city. After this, we visited Koprivshtitsa and was fascinated by its peaceful nature and strong sense of the past. There are several houses to visit here which have been homes to some of the key people involved in the uprising against the Ottoman Empire. This trip is a must for anyone interested in Bulgarian history....
