Patrick P.

Varna, Bulgaria

My name is Patrick and I am an independent personal tour guide based in Sofia, Bulgaria.

I work with small groups, maximum four people, in order to give exclusive service to each of my customers. I am fluent in English and Spanish.

With over 20 years of local guiding experience, I have a complete knowledge of Bulgaria - its history and legends, its traditions and culture. I organize private tours, 100% customized and tailored to your tastes and needs, all around Bulgaria, providing exceptional service at fair and reasonable prices!

I offer wide range of cultural trips including my special "Exclusive Bulgaria round tour", day tours in Sofia and along the Black Sea coast, archaeological and historical tours, monastery trips, research tours, foodie and wine tours, as well as outdoor activities including hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding. My services were featured in International Travel News magazine 2008 - 2016. I am fully licensed and a member of the Association of Bulgarian Tour Guides.

The journey is the treasure . . . Bulgaria is the experience . . .

A Recent Review of this guide

Patrick is engaging and deeply committed to helping visitors learn about and appreciate both the justly famous treasures of Bulgaria but also the charms and unique features of rural life in the mountains and villages on our tour. In our long day with him he perfectly combined our special interests with additional visits to places we would never have discovered on our own.
