Ancient Bulgarian warriors - Private tour

Ancient Bulgarian warriors - Private tour

Get ready for a time travel and adventure which you won’t forget! You’ll learn some interesting history, shoot with a bow, ride a horse, fight with swords and taste the ancient Bulgarians’ food. We are going to a place where for a few hours we’ll get to live the life of the ancient Bagaturs. Those were Bulgarian warriors in the antiquity whose name means "heavenly sword". Being similar to the knights and the samurai, the Bagaturs were heavily armed and on a horse. They were extremely well-trained warriors. Some of their contemporaries wrote that a Bagatur can be compared to 100 ordinary soldiers. In order to check all of the above, we’ll embark on a trip to the city of Stara Zagora where Aul Baga-tur is situated. Aul is an old Bulgarian word which means “temporary village/fort” of the proto-Bulgarians. *** IMPORTANT NOTICE: The 2-hour Bagatur program costs an additional 150 euro per group and is not included in the price of the tour. It's payable to our Bagatur hosts on arrival.

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"
