Exceptional Knowledgable Tour Guide

Joined the private tour today to visit the second largest city in Bulgaria. Another wonderful trip with a knowledgeable tour guide. It's as much fun visiting the places as talking to the tour guide to learn about the Bulgarian life! Highly recommend! Plovdiv is amazing with a vibrant art scene.
