Plovdiv & Koprivshtitsa Day Trip
, Sep 2021
Good value for money. Worth visiting as a day trip from Sofia. Good English-speaking guide. Old town of Plovdiv was the highlight for me.
Extremely recommendable !!!
, Oct 2020
Nice combination of Plovdiv and a pretty mountain village with interesting landscape, architecture and history. My guide Lubo is the best guide I ever had.

Dear Bernd, Thank you for your positive feedback on our services! Looking forward to seeing you! Safe travels,
Excellent, fun tour

The tour was really great, our tour guide Philip was super friendly, smart, and made the experience even better. Other tour guides just leave you do your own thing, Philip made it feel like we were a group of friends exploring together. The itinerary of the tour was really well planned and I really have to say that I ended up loving Plovdiv. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bulgaria.

If you are not a fan of driving, this trip is for you. Our driver was very knowledgeable of the regions we were visiting and kept us entertained all the time. Make sure to have cash for tipping, this employees are very good at their work and don't make much.
Relaxing trip

The tour was very educative. Plovdiv is very beautiful and nice to walk around with typical small town atmosphere. The views from top of the mountain are impressive. The other village is very small and full of interesting spots to take nice pictures. The experiment was very relaxing since it is another experience outside the city life of Sofia.

A long but excellent day led by Lubo who was fantastic. Plovdiv is beautiful. The day was made more fun by the tour being made up of a small group of like minded people.

It was great! The tour guide Chris at the start was a bit arrogant, but later until the end of the tour,, I found him to be nice and pleasant. He is knowledgeable and had given us a massive information about the places he had taken us. His service was above and beyond. He is a great tour guide and I highly commended him.
Excellent day trip

Plenty to see, good trip, knowledgeable guide and great scenery on the journey. Only downside was the minibus could have been better, with a more robust aircon system.
Nice one day tour for Plovdiv & Koprivshtitsa
, Oct 2018
It was fantastic experience, the guide was good but he should not act based on his preconceived notions about people from certain nationalities, somewhere I felt his behaviour with me was different than for others...maybe I am wrong, overall it was good anyways.
Excellent experience.

After visiting Sofia we had taken this trip and it was a great idea . We saw a lot as it was two towns at a time..Timing was perfect and so were the bus driver and the guide..Bulgaria has beautiful countrysides and is really worth viisting . Vasco, the guide, was a nice and friendly guy, and had a great knowledge of the history of the region and the country Plovdiv Old Town is charming and so is the little village in the mountains,Koprivshtitsa ,with its touching history..We fully recommend it.
