        When in Ruse
        We enjoyed the wine tasting. Very clear instructions in written and over the phone. We had set the time from a long time and we just touched bqse quickly to reconfirm. Very recommened to everyone visiting the little Vienna - Ruse.

        Interesting city
        Lovely city to stroll around and look at the old buildings and architecture. The town square is the place just to sit and soak up the atmosphere.

        great experience to get some Bulgarian knowledge
        it was really nice experiemce to take this trip. Hristo was my tour guide. He does take care that you feel very comfortable and secure all the time, he is willing to answer all your questions and he is very open to share as much details as possible of every single corner that imvolves Bulgarian history. yes the trip implies quite driving hours but it worths it. Plovdiv was a surprise to me, the romans ruins, charming houses in old towm. i really recommend this trip.

        You get the big picture about Bulgaria with this trip
        Though it involves some driving in a car this tour fantastically shows you the best of Bulgaria with 3 of its cities - Ruse, Veliko Tarnovo and Plovdiv. The accent was on Plovdiv as the European Capital of Culture for 2019 which takes your breath with vast Roman sights and history dating back to 8 thousands years BC. I had a clear view of what Bulgaria is regardless of all the nonsense and bad reputation of the country on TV, I loved it! I'd decide another tour and make up my mind if I wanna see more of this nice country.

      I picked up from friends from the airport and this was the tour to introduce Bulgaria for the first time. I was on many other trips starting from Romania to Bulgaria and I had the experience already what to expect. Anyways I was with them so i tried not to compare it with my previous experience.
      We all had it private as there was nobody else with us on that day which was great. We first visited Ruse which is the small Vienna and it's really good to experience the main street and then we traveled to Veliko Tarnovo which is truly amazing no matter how many times you may visit it. We had the whole tour of the city which took about 3 hours, we enjoyed the old part of the city, we were lead to such small and hidden parts with beautiful views to the fortress Tsarevets where we ended up visiting. Really fantastic day tour from Romania. Recommended for everybody who wants to experience Bulgaria and has just a free day in Bucharest!

      Hello, thank you for your review of this wonderful tour to Veliko Tarnovo from Bucharest. As part of your 4-month travel in Bulgaria with your foreign friends we were extremely happy to show the best off-the-beaten path experiences which matter. Also, you were fascinated by the availability of the experiences no matter that you are Bulgarian. All the best, Hristo
