A Recent Review of this tour

Pavlina was amazing, collected us from the hotel in her Trabant and then drove us around the city telling the story of Bulgarian communism and the history of the city. Not only did she tell us the politics of the time but also personal memories and stories that have a real insight into how Bulgarians lived under communism. Excellent! Really good value and unique.
