Wonderful tour! Plovdiv is a very beautiful city with a lot of history. Guide (Georgi) reported a lot of interesting facts in perfect English and answered all questions well. Two old merchants' houses were viewed from the inside - quite impressive. Roman buildings are still very impressive. In Plovdiv, a guide suggested a restaurant that was really good. After Plovdiv, after about an hour's drive to the Rhodope Mountain, there was still about an hour's boat tour before it went back to Sofia. Tour clearly recommended!

My friend and I went to Plovdiv and the Rhodope Mountains, it was stunning! Plovdiv is a very interesting city and the mountains are breathtaking. We were about an hour by boat on the lake, we ate at a stunning restaurant. The guide Daniel answered all the questions and was amazing. We enjoyed every moment!

We are delighted with this excursion, the very beautiful city of Plovdiv, Lake Vcha - incredible, beautiful mountains, nature and comfortable conditions and a good guide Daniel, a restaurant with fish dishes that live in this lake, created a mood for us. You will not regret if you go on this excursion.

Everything was just amazing. Georgi, the guide was charming and very interesting, highly recommend the experience, it changed my whole outlook on Bulgaria.

This excursion is very interesting and well balanced.
