The tour was given by Plami, an amazing guide! She was very interesting. Even after 4 tours in Bulgaria, we've learned much more about the country and about Tarnovo. Don't miss it!

A two-and-half-hour tour that shows the major sights of VT. The tour was really informative not only about VT but also about the history and culture of Bulgaria. Plami was a very well-informed and enthusiastic guide. A definitive to-do in VT

We did the free city walk about Sreet art. It is an alternative walk which starts at 6 p.m.. It takes between 2 to 3 hours, and shows you some special corners of the city. Very interesting and original.
