A Recent Review of this tour

We had a two day tour with Kamen and we were really pleased the service we received. Kamen is quite knowledgeable and was very economical with the time we had in Bulgaria. We went with Kamen because of his flexibility to do a two day tour that took us from Veliko Tarnovo to Sofia and we were very satisfied with the resulting tour.
