        Bulgaria from Bucharest is a must
        Went to Bucharest on a one week business trip. There I had visitors and lots of meetings. In one of the days I decided to take all my partners on a one day trip to Bulgaria to show them. I did not have the car to fit everybody so I booked this trip. It turned out to be a real gem. Everybody and myself too enjoyed it greatly! Wonderful guides, nice timed route, lots of attractions. It took about 10 hours but it was fantastic and my business partners signed the contracts I went for there. Amazing!

        Wonderful day trip to Bulgaria!
        An amazing day trip to Bulgaria. Just note it says private when you buy it but private here does mean other people who can fit in the van as well (we had 4 others with us on the trip but they were all very pleasant). The tour guide was amazing, lunch was wonderful, and the sights were stunning. Highly recommend.

        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.

        That's how i came in Bulgaria
        My idea was to have a day trip from the Romanian capital in Bulgaria and if I like it to stay and explore more. I loved Ruse and Veliko Tarnovo and actually did not go back to Bucharest at the end of the tour. Those 2 cities truly fascinated me and I wanted more off-the-beaten path of Bulgaria. I recommend you this tour as fantastic is not enough to express it!

        The best tour you can take from Bucharest to Bulgaria
        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!

      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.

      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.
