Intense day, interesting sights
Oct 2021 • Solo
Intense day with a friendly guide. The group was rather small which was really nice. The guide really showed us the main sights. The pace was quite fast and it included a lot of route so maybe booking the Plovdiv only tour would be also an option.

Plovdiv is worth it
Sep 2021 • Couples
Fun tour with enthousiastic Tourguide (Martin). Just us two and one other couple. Long drive but worth it ! Maybe the free time could be a little longer in Plovdiv ? Choose fast food and not a slow restaurant to see more of the city ;)

Avoid this company!
Mar 2020 • Solo
Terrible customer services - no reply when I emailed them after finding out bulgaria was in a state of emergency and everything was shut. So what’s the point of an excursion which states you will visit the tourist attractions, churches, galleries, museums, historic homes etc and allows you to have lunch etc when nothing is actually open due to the state of emergency and the government advises people not to be in close proximity? I asked for a refund only to be told - no because the excursion is still running. Avoid this company.

Dear Neil, Thank you for your review. You were scheduled to join a tour starting on March 15th at 08:00. Your "cancellation" came on March 15th at 23:45. Yes, your booking was considered as "no-show" and treated as per the standard booking condition. If you had let us know a day earlier that you would not be traveling (a fact, which for sure was clear to you already on March 14th), then your booking would've been refunded in full. We are sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to be of your service next time you visit Bulgaria. Best regards, Traventuria team

Superb trip
Feb 2020
We had an amazing day visiting Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa with our excellent guide Martin who was friendly, fun and very informative. We loved Plovdiv old town which looked amazing, unlike anything we had ever seen (like the perfect set out of an old gothic movie) and enjoyed visiting an outdoor Roman theatre and tasting in a local distillery where we purchased a bottle of melon alcohol. Martin was a great driver who multi-tasked by giving us funny and engaging stories of the histories of Bulgaria, Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa which all made for a fascinating, fun and memorable day.

Plovdiv is a must see town
We had a great visit, our guide Lubo was knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. Plovdiv is colorful and quaint. Koprivshitsta was a journey that I could have skipped, small village with monument/museum to local revolutionary. Overall a great day!
