Wonderful tour! Plovdiv is a very beautiful city with a lot of history. Guide (Georgi) reported a lot of interesting facts in perfect English and answered all questions well. Two old merchants' houses were viewed from the inside - quite impressive. Roman buildings are still very impressive. In Plovdiv, a guide suggested a restaurant that was really good. After Plovdiv, after about an hour's drive to the Rhodope Mountain, there was still about an hour's boat tour before it went back to Sofia. Tour clearly recommended!
Rila and Boyana are a must see in Bulgaria. The tour was great, and Lubo, our guide, made it fantastic. He's very knowledgeable and passionate, and explains not only the history of the sites, but also the history and culture of the country itself. Would definitely do it again!
Wonderful day trip to Plovdiv, well worth it. Our guide, Lubo, was fantastic - really friendly guy and very knowledgeable. The city itself is really nice and has a great vibe about it, it was only a shame that we couldn't stay for longer!
The visits of the monastery and the forteress were really nice. Kamen is a good local guide. He has a deep konwledge about both monuments. I highly recommand it.
This trip was great and informative! I highly recommend it!
