Unfortunately I cannot recall the name of the lady guide, Tsvenia ? who also acts as a singer. She was super, humorous and very knowledgeable and apart from showing us the main sights she also told stories about the inhabitants of Plovdiv.

My wife and I went on the tour with our 1 year old son. The tour involves a lot of trekking up steep cobbled streets so it can get a little tough with a stroller. Do keep that in mind if you are a family. Other than that the tour was quite informative and was brief. Stefan was friendly and... More

This tour lasts for 2 hours and was excellent. This is one of the best tours we have been on visiting the main street and the old town. Why it was great was because the guide, Lliya, made the history of the place interesting, gave us time to take photos and walked in a relax pace instead of trying to... More

Kathy was my tour guide, we were a small group due to bad weather and she really took the time to chat to us and answer all our questions. The free walking tour takes you to the main tourist sites and is great way to get a breif overview of the history of both the city and the countrey.

I was surprised how much information was packed into this walking tour. Our guide, Pavel did a terrific job. He kept a steady pace, answered every question and provided very interesting facts about the 6,000 year history of this town. The tour lasted 2-1/2 hours but I was surprised how fast the time went. Folks are informed right up front... More

Look, this is difficult for me review fairly as It was our guides first ever tour. On that basic alone the man did an excellent job. Compared to a tour guide with years experience - the tour was definitely lacking. The tour definitely has potential though and our guide will learn in time. I would still recommend going along though... More
