Enjoyable experience . Very knowledgeable guide

The group tour was amazing . The group was small ( 6 people) . Our guide was attentive and knowledgeable and was fluent in English . We reached Plovdiv before the anticipated time and spent more time in the city. We also saw the ethnographic museam in Plovdiv which was very interesting. Got to learn about Bulgarian customs ,people and their lifestyles. The roman theatre and Assen's fortress are quite expensive. The drive from Sofia to Plovdiv is scenic and you can see a lot of snow clad mountains and green valleys

beautiful excursion into the Rhodope mountains

We were only two people with our guide Kamen. So it was kind of a private tour. He picked us up at our hotel with his car and took good care of us. He answered all our questions about Plovdiv and surroundings and Bulgaria in general. We had an excellent day in nature with a little bit of hiking to the fortress of Assen and to wonderful stone bridges. We also went to the beautiful monastery Batschkowo. Kamen is a friendly knowledgeable guide. This tour is highly recommendable when you are in Plovdiv.

Great tour and guides! With small improvement needed on the transport.

Great trip, good service and attention by the guides (good level of detail shared of the history etc). Relaxed tour, not too formal which makes it very pleasant. Only tip is to update the touring bus: in the back you can hardly see any sights through the window pane as there is a sticker in front of the glass, and the small curtains of the glass cover up partial view too. Bus is also in an old state so could use renewal to be at the same level as professionalism as the guides+overall tour are.

A quick and easy way to see Plovdiv and Asen's Fortress in a day

Our guide, Michael, and our driver were great company. They were very friendly and our pick-up and drop-off were punctual and convenient. Our guide was very informative and helpful, recommended various ways to spend a few hours in Plovdiv, and gave us the freedom to explore on our own. Great to have had the opportunity to see Asen's Fortress to.

Great tour - Plovdiv, Asen´s Fortress, Bachkovo Monastery ALL IN ONE!

Great day with a lot of new sights to rememeber. A nice and kind guide as well - who went far and beyond to give us the best tour.
