    Plovdiv Old Town
    Stop: 4 hours
    Discover the town of Plovdiv- one of the oldest existing settlements in world! See the Roman Theater and parts of the Roman Stadium. Walk through the longest pedestrian street in Europe. Explore the magnificent Revival old town with its unique colorful houses from the 19th century. See the recently uncovered early Christian mosaics dating back to the 4th century! The cliche "you must see Plovdiv to see Bulgaria" is absolutely true and there is so much to explore in the country's second largest town. Plovdiv is about 1,5 hours drive from Sofia and is situated in the western part of the Thracian Valley. It is one of the oldest settlements in the world, having emerged on the three adjacent hills – the beginning of its history dates back to 4,000 years BC. It has preserved Thracian, Roman and Bulgarian heritage from different epochs. There will be a 2- 3 hour walking tour in the heart of the town and you will learn lots of historical facts and legends while exploring its most interesting sightseeing places.

Fab day out in Plovdiv
Sep 2021 • Couples
Had a great day out, excellent driver/guide (Demeti) was brilliant and his knowledge was amazing Plovdiv is a lovely quiet city, smaller than Sofia but enough of interest to keep you there for a few days

Fantastic, full of history
Jul 2021 • Solo
Loved the entire trip, was a great day. My tour guide antonio was very informative and a huge amount of knowledge on everything. You can tell he is so passionate about history and his information really made the experience even better. I was alone and as a female I was anxious about security but this was no issue and antonio helped in every way.

Excelent customer service
Jul 2021 • Solo
I want to thank Nashkov for booking this trip as well as Dimitar, my guide. This private tour was booked instantly, the day before almost at night. The next day, the guide showed up and took me to Plovdiv. I wouldn't have asked for an excelent driver and guide. The complete trip was an excelent experience and at very reasonable price. This company is so serious about excelent customer service, that I ended up booking another tour to Rila. When you visit Sofia, this company City Tour is the way to go.

Guided by Antonio, Plovdiv should not be missed, the old town is really interesting especially the ornately decorated historic buildings. The whole day was fantastic, but please wear good shoes for the cobbled streets.

Wonderful day in Plovdiv
Feb 2020 • Family
We had a wonderful day in Plovdiv. Bosch was a great guide. It ended up being only my daughter and myself so we got to see what we wanted and move on to the next if we didn’t. We had plenty of solo time to do some searching and grab lunch. Roman ruins can be found just about everywhere around town.
