Small-group Sightseeing Walking Tour of Plovdiv

Small-group Sightseeing Walking Tour of Plovdiv

As a tour guide, I was always thinking that it is possible to make a tour on your own wherever you go and whatever you visit, but believe me it is not true. The experience you can get from someone local like me, who can tell you the history of the city and the county, and mainly answer to the questions you will have about the culture, customs, traditions, food and everyday life is unmeasurable and incomparable. We will go together through the most interesting places, most known and also unknown places, where you will be explained how life was before and how it is now. You will get the whole picture about the oldest town in Europe and I am sure in the end you will not want to leave the city. And if you ask me, what is the reason to do this, I would answer, like I always answer to people: "I do it for the smile of the people that can see shining in the end of the tour"
