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.

Patrick was the perfect guide, who made learning the history and archeology of Bulgaria fun and exciting. He is pleasant and personable, always considering options that would please us, with a dedication to his career andin depth knowledge of Thracian and more contemporary history and art. We spent 5 great days, and were only sorry that we hadn't planned for more time with Patrick.

Patrick is a wonderful guide. He is very knowledgeable and very flexible on the itinerary. He makes sure that everything is perfect such as our meals & accommodations. He let us set our own pace since we are not youngsters. Would use his services again in a minute

An excellent four days which we enjoyed very much and excelled our expectations. Within the first hour we felt we had known Patrick for ages. He was relaxed and friendly while maintaining a truly professional attitude. He was knowledgeable on all the areas we visited. We had a full itinerary, but Patrick was very flexible and adapted it to suit us when necessary. We always felt that he had our best interests at heart and nothing was too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend his tours.

I recently had a wonderful trip to Bulgaria - a country I highly recommend to everyone to visit, guided by Patrick. Patrick made the trip truly memorable. He is incredibly well informed, obviously loves his country and its history, knows people everywhere which allowed us to get in to all sorts of wonderful places, and was great company the entire time we were together. I highly recommend him, no matter what you choose to see/do in Bulgaria!

Superlatives are inadequate to describe the fantastic Bulgarian tour that Patrick devised for my sister and me. I asked to 'see the real Bulgaria and its people, and we did': visiting schools and hospital; staying in village guest houses; riding horses; walking on Roman roads and into Thracian tombs; viewing frescoes in churches; exclaiming over natural sites; eating Bulgarian delicacies; admiring local artisans; and being entertained by ethnic musicians. Patrick informed with stories; a professional.

Patrick planned and executed an excellent 4-day tour of Bulgaria during which we we learned a great deal in a short time. He is intelligent, knowledgeable and personable-a winning combination. He handled unforeseeable problems, such as car trouble, with both integrity and class by arranging and paying for taxis to complete the last few hours of our tour. His insights into life in Bulgaria today greatly contributed to our understanding of what we were seeing. We were also fortunate to meet his lovely wife.
