It was a great tour from Sofia. Plovdiv was a beautiful city with lots to see and do. Lubo was an excellent guide and showed us all of the best places to see that really showed the culture of the city. I would highly recommend to anyone!

Constantine was a fantastic guide. The tour was nicely paced, we got to see a lot without it feeling very rushed. Picked up in central Sofia at 9am and dropped off at exactly 5pm. Would highly recommend.

This was a great day trip. It's around 2 hours drive from Sofia to Plovdiv including a toilet/coffee stop. Our guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic and told us lots about the things we saw and the history of the town. Plovdiv is definitely well worth a visit and this tour

Plovdiv is stunning. If you are in Sofia, it is an easy and beautiful day trip. We had Constansa as our guide and she was fantastic! She is smart, fun, and clearly loves her job and Plovdiv. We learned so much, and saw so many wonderful sights. One day was not enough!!! I

Starting from the point that Plovidv was named Culture capital, I think the tour does no justice to it. Two hours trip where the guide wouldn't literally stop talking about thousands of facts about Bulgary in general. Of course this is interesting, but the problem is that when

Dear Lidia, Thank you for your review. Please, kindly note that during the process of booking, all of our customers agree with the details of the tour, including the itineraries and time tables. The time for photos is included, so the tour and the groups are not affected by that. The visit to the museum is included in the itineraries of the tour, as it is considered a must-see. However, all of our guides are really enthusiastic about their job and they always find a flexible way to satisfy everyone in the group. I am sure our guide gave you a few options on what to do during the time others are in the Museum. It's a customer's choice to visit a restaurant, but we always recommend our guests to take some sandwiches for lunch so they will have more free time to wander around instead of waiting in the restaurant. We strongly believe that our guides can give you information about Plovdiv in-depth and can always show you hidden places that you may not be able to find even on a good Google search. We also offer private tours that can be organized according to a time-table completely organized by the customer, so I am sure next time we can satisfy all of your wishes. Safe travels, Annie Krumova
