Kamen gives a superb overview of the 6000-year history and key sites of old Plovdiv, which seems to be one of the best kept secrets (for USA folks anyway). I wish we had had more time to stay afterwards and explore the area in more depth. There's so much fascinating history and so much to see! Renovations are extensive and ongoing. Definitely take Kamen's tour to get the most out of your stay. He's so knowledgeable and engaging.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, thanks for the great reviews!

Top guide. Excellent English, engaging. Highly knowledgeable about history and context of what we toured. Skilled driver on curvy, narrow mountain roads. Gorgeous scenery with many wildflowers (May 19) with mix of rain and sun. Morning rain kept others away so sites were wonderfully peaceful. Probably would not have enjoyed the sites as much if there were crowds, particularly the marble bridges. Liked the history and views from the Fortress the best. Highly recommend him.

Tour: Buzludja, Bachkovo Monastery & Assen's Fortress day tour from Plovdiv, Plovdiv, Bulgaria
Date: Dec 21/16

From the moment we met Kamen he made us feel comfortable and throughout the tour we were laughing and joking. It was like being out with a mate for the day. The stories he told and the history of the places we visited were fascinating. There were very humorous things he pointed out that we'd never have found ourselves. Everything went smoothly and Kamen conducted the tour with just the right amount of adventure. Also, his safe and careful driving in challenging snowy conditions was greatly appreciated. :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Joanna! I also had great time with you. Great fun! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happiest New Year!

We loved this tour. It gave us a chance to see the landscape out of Plovdiv and we saw a lot during the day. We loved the Thracian tombs, Rose Museum, artifacts museum and the beautiful church. Lunch was delicious and fun too!

Kamen has the knowledge and understanding to bring the area in question closer to you. He is open to conversations that create understanding of what you see in its current context. When a few things went wrong to no fault of his, he was able to provide spontaneous alternatives that were at least as rewarding if not more than the original programme resulting in a day I will never forget and will be one of the absolute highlights of my visit to Bulgaria.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Felix!

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.
