Beautiful ancient Plovdiv and breathtaking Assen
Aug. 2019
This tour is really worth your time and money. After a 2 hr drive (with short sanitairy and coffee stop just before Plovdiv) we arrived with Sveto (guide) and Bobby (driver) in Plovdiv. Walking through town Sveto told interesting facts about the history of this beautiful city. After some time for ourselves we left for Assen's Fortress at 14.30 hrs. Just a short drive, and despite the temperature of 36 °C we really enjoyed the walk, the scenery and historical background stories. A tour worth taking!!

Excellent Day Trip - time and money well spent!
May 2019 • Solo
Travelling on my own and only having a couple of days to sightsee in and around Sofia, I booked this trip hoping to make the most of my limited time. I am so glad that I did! The journey each way was about 2 hours, including a quick break, but went quickly. The itinerary was well planned (1.5 hours of guided tour of Plovdiv then 2 hours of free time, plus an hour at Asen Fortress on the way home.) Both the driver and tour guide were excellent, providing a friendly and relaxed atmosphere for the group (there were 7 of us - one pair, one threesome and two solo travellers). Would certainly recommend this trip, and would have done others with the same company if I had had longer.

So so
Driver and guide were polite and caring.
The 7 passenger mini-van was not very comfortable.
We were disappointed because we expected more depth in the historic explanations from the guide.
We would have preferred to have more time in Plovdiv (only 2.5 hrs), instead of spending 2 hrs to drive to/and back to visit Asen’s Fortress/church.
Overall we felt that we were just paying for the ride there and back, there was some information given but it wasn’t what we had expected at all.
We recommend to find a day tour just for Plovdiv - there is plenty to see.

Interesting informative day out with the added bonus of seeing the amphitheatre in virtual reality. The historic centre of plovdiv is stunning with many interesting buildings and museums. Our guide was an excellent historian and it was very good value for money

Ended up being a private tour
We booked our tour on line in the UK and were pleasantly surprised that what we anticipated would be a group tour was just my wife and I.

Our guide arrived at the designated time and spoke good English.

We drove to Plovdiv which was a wonderful historic town and well worth a visit.

It has a fascinating history which was well explained to us.

After the walking tour, we had adequate time to explore the the main shopping area of the town and have lunch before reconnecting with our guide for the trip to the fortress.

Asen's fortress is on a quite hilly area and it would good to go at our own pace.

We then returned to Sofia, our guide managed to miss the worst of the rush hour traffic and we were back at around 6 pm

Excellent tour and guide
Our tour guide was fantastic in giving us a history of Plovdiv and Bulgaria in general. We had plenty of time to look around and take pictures of the ruins and houses. We were brought into a small distillery where you could sample the alcohol and buy some. We were also brought into a rose oil shop for about 5 mins to look around but were not pressured to buy anything. Then we were brought to assens fortress where we had plenty of time to look around and enjoy the view and even make a quick extra stop to take a photo of the fortress from further away. Highly recommended.

Excellent, nice guide
Nov. 2018 • Couples
We were the only two on the tour, and the guide, a nice young man, did a very good job. He walked with us to the sites in Plovdiv and explained the details. It's good to walk up to Asen's Fortress and had a nice view. We enjoyed the tour very much.

Dear Guests, Thank you for sharing your good experience with our wonderful guide Adrian! We are happy to have tourists even in the low season, when as you have already mentioned, our groups become "private" and we never cancel our tours even if they are not profitable for us. Wishing you many other happy tours! Best regards, Victor Kostov
