A must see!

Plovdiv is the EU’s 2019 European capital of culture and deservedly so. Both the old and new city are beautiful. Wear not just comfortable shoes but your most comfortable shoes. Lots of walking up and down on rough cobbled streets at the old part of town. Had a bit of a hiccup when told that 2 more will be joining what we booked to be a private tour but they were good fun and the tour operator upgraded our set lunch to an order whatever you want to eat and drink one, so yeah we ended up being a merry bunch!

The tour and the guide Nellie were outstanding. Plovdiv is worth the visit. Our only complaint is that the lunch was terrible. It was billed as a traditional Bulgarian lunch. It was not. Bad tasting chicken was the fare. Tour company could improve the tour by fixing the lunch by allowing a selection of entrees, and outfitting the guide with a microphone. It was sometime very hard to hear given the crowds and road noise.

So unique and tasty was the traditional Bulgarian lunch served!! A special dish with 3 eggs and some cheese that is a typical meal specially in the interior of Bulgaria! Plovdiv does deserve a visit having a pedestrian área that connects with the historical places from the Roman Empire ancient time

We didnt know what to expect since there werent any reviews on this tour, but it was great. It was a private tour, and our guide was fantasticvery knowledgeable, flexible, and accommodating. We were disappointed as we werent able to go into the Roman theater as it happened to be closed the day we visited, but that wasnt the tour companys fault. The launch was a la carte at a restaurant, which was fine. Definitely recommended, assuming you wind up with a great guide like we had.

Great tour perfect way to see Plovdiv in one day. We were picked up at our hotel just on time. There were out guide Stoyan Shirov and a lady driver who made it possible for Stoyan to focus on the tour not the driving an hour and a half each way. Our guide Stoyan was just wonderful: Very knowledgeable about Plovdiv, Sofia, Bulgaria and European history in general as well as NBA, and more . Very accommodating making it possible to do the tour at our own pace. All in all, a very enjoyable day at a very reasonable price of US 90 for two people, which included: A nice private car with a driver, private outstanding guide and a nice lunch great value.
Gran excursión
