Sofia, Bulgaria

Dear travelers, It is my pleasure that you are reviewing my profile and tours.

I am a licensed tour guide, graduated in International Tourism - MBA. I am also a member of the Association of Bulgarian Tour Guides. Since 2002 I have gained the experience of creating tailor made itineraries and/or routes, professionally organize and do individual tours around Bulgaria, acting both as a driver and a tour guide.
In the same time a am a proud father of two young boys, who, hopefully I will be able to show the world once they are grown up enough :)
My services include guiding - giving the travelers rich historical and cultural information about the whole of Bulgaria, driving - providing airport transfers, as well as transfers to Bulgaria neighboring countries - Bucharest (Romania), Edirne, Istanbul (Turkey), Thessaloniki (Greece), Skopje, Ohrid (Republic of Macedonia - F. Y. R. O. M) Belgrade (Serbia)

By choosing a personal tour guide you are actually choosing to have personal service, caring attitude and to receive up-to-date information about the daily life - a review over the economics, arts, education and health care in Bulgaria.
I can also provide interpreting and translating services having more than 10 years experience.

A Recent Review of this guide

Philip picked me up from the airport and then I enjoyed a 6 hour tour around the centre of Sofia. He have me lots of information on the history of the country/town. We were able to tailor the sites and durations at these acoording to my interests. He then dropped me back to the airport for my onward flight.
