The day trip to Plovdiv is a great experience! I highly recommend it to everyone visiting Sofia as it is a relatively close destination. The architecture and history in Fillipoupolis is captivating. Our english tour guide (Maria) was very pleasant, helpful and informative about the city. Timing was followed according to the program.

Great day trip to Plovdiv! Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Good mix of guided tour and free time to eat and explore on your own. Definitely would recommend for anyone with limited time that would like to see Plovdiv but cant stay for a few days.

Guide was very informative and pleasant. Was a small group of about 10 people. Saw old and new Plovdiv. Plovdiv tour was about 2hrs. Then we had about 2hrs of free time to explore on our own. Left Sofia at 9am and returned by 4pm. Overall, a very good tour.

Nice trip. Small group. Guide tour tells us about a lot of interesting facts. A good mix of walking of the cityband free time to eat and look around by ourselves. Worth it.

It was a great tour . Lots of information and our tour guide and driver were both very professional and kind.
