Enjoyable experience . Very knowledgeable guide
The group tour was amazing . The group was small ( 6 people) . Our guide was attentive and knowledgeable and was fluent in English . We reached Plovdiv before the anticipated time and spent more time in the city. We also saw the ethnographic museam in Plovdiv which was very interesting. Got to learn about Bulgarian customs ,people and their lifestyles. The roman theatre and Assen's fortress are quite expensive. The drive from Sofia to Plovdiv is scenic and you can see a lot of snow clad mountains and green valleys

Mejor viajar en primavera-verano
El viaje fue muy bien, no tuvimos problema para quedar con el guía. La visita también bien, pero no pudimos verlo todo por la nieve. Nos recomendó un lugar típico para comer y mereció mucho la pena :) Repetiría!
