You will be accompanied by a private licensed tour guide during the whole day. You can stop for pictures and refreshments any time. Plovdiv isn’t just the oldest city in Bulgaria… it’s one of the oldest cities in the world. Historians agree that this scenic valley in the south of Bulgaria has been inhabited for more than 5,000 years – but some will tell you that Plovdiv’s history goes back further still, for as much as 8,000 years of continuous habitation! So what can you expect on a Plovdiv day excursion or tour? During this day tour to Plovdiv we will visit the Bachkovo monastery, the Asen’s fortress and the must seen places in Plovdiv – the Old town from 19th century; the Ethnographic museum; Balabanov house; the Ancient theater of Philipopolis; the Ancient stadium of Philipopolis, The St St Constantin and Elena church, The Djumaya mosque and square, The building of the Regional Historical museum, the Main walking street, “The Trap” neighborhood; Nebet tepe and more.

I did a private day trip to Rila Monastery and a city tour of Sofia with Kiril. Even though it was Christmas Eve, he still managed to come out (all the way from Plovdiv) and drive me around. Kudos to him! He speaks perfect English as he spent some time studying in the United

Response from Yuri S, Owner at Private Plovdiv Sightseeing Tour from Sofia - City Tour and Local Attractions
Responded Aug. 16, 2019
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you had this experience. ------------ A word for our customers Private Guide Bulgaria is a honest company, which is proved by our hundreds of clients. We provide a detailed itinerary before every tour, and we take the responsibility if the itinerary was not followed. Always. In this case a detailed itinerary was provided by Adriana and confirmed by the client. The itinerary clearly said "Day 12 - Airport transfer". No tour planned. Dear customers, carefully review your itineraries before confirming your booking. We promise to keep up the good work. Can't wait to show you the Balkans!
