Bella attività, Plovdiv merita una visita e a mio avviso anche più caratteristica di Sofia con un centro accogliente e numerosi punti di vista panoramici e chiese da visitare. Guida in inglese.

Superbe excursion avec un guide génial (Mihail)
Superbe journée à Plovdiv et à la forteresse d'Asen. Trop court pour découvrir les subtilités des lieux mais assez pour être subjugué par les bâtiments du XIXème siècle et l'amphithéâtre de Plovdiv avec comme apothéose la vue imprenable sur la forteresse d'Asen et les monts Rhodopes. Le tout pour un prix modique et accompagné d'un guide (Mihail) très gentil, amical et patient devant mes pauses photos.

Tour decente
El tour por Plovdiv fue decente, aunque nos faltó más información sobre la ciudad y su historia. A pesar de indicarse que la actividad terminaba a las 18:00-18:30, a las 17:00 estábamos ya de vuelta en Sofía.

Escursione con V-Travel
Escursione molto interessante, con una gradita sorpresa da parte della guida Victor che ci ha mostrato tramite degli occhiali speciali com'era Plovdiv ai tempi dei romani. Ci è piaciuta anche l'escursione tramite automobile anziché in bus, che ci ha permesso di avere la guida "privata". Tempi rispettati come da programma. Sicuramente un'escursione da fare.

Great tour and guides! With small improvement needed on the transport.
Great trip, good service and attention by the guides (good level of detail shared of the history etc). Relaxed tour, not too formal which makes it very pleasant. Only tip is to update the touring bus: in the back you can hardly see any sights through the window pane as there is a sticker in front of the glass, and the small curtains of the glass cover up partial view too. Bus is also in an old state so could use renewal to be at the same level as professionalism as the guides+overall tour are.

Splendide città e ottima guida
Splendide città, caratteristiche per i colori e le costruzioni, la guida è stata splendida ci ha seguito personalmente spiegandoci tutto e rispondendo alle nostre domande e bisogni. Tappa obbligatoria per chi visita la Bulgaria.

An excellent trip
Our guide - Georgi - was excellent. He was also the driver with a very good level of English and a perfect knowledge about the history of the places. In Plovdiv some of the places were closed on Saturday, so we couldn't get in, but the ones that we could get in were totally enough to visit. The city is very nice and pleasant to walk around. Many places where to eat. Also the fortress, which is outside of the city, has breathtaking views to the surrounding mountains and a valley.

Me encantò la excursiòn ,muy agradable, puntualidad del guìa .
A pesar que falta restaurar Plovdiv, es pequeña y agradable centro històrico. El guìa simpàtico y preciso en las explicaciones. Cuando llegamos a la fortaleza de Asen, cambiaron el precio justo en ese momento de la entrada de 3 levas a 4 levas.
