It's a wonderful experience! Our guide, Maria, told us everything there is to know about this beautiful city. In addition, Maria is teeming with knowledge not only about Plovdiv but also about Sofia and Bulgaria in general. She is a very nice and approachable person and will be happy to answer all questions. We rode with an extremely comfortable car, visited the old town, the main street and ended up having free time for lunch, coffee and other. I definitely recommend if you have extra time in Sofia

Our guide Maria was great! We had a private tour since it was just the two of us for the day. She gave a lot of info but in a fun and interesting manner.

Maria was absolutely brilliant. Her passion and extensive knowledge made the trip much better. She is a credit to her company.

Superb release. Our guide made the effort to speak to us in French. Which was a plus for us. Thanks to her.

Maria is a wonderful tour guide. It couldn't be better !!
