I really enjoyed the tour to Plovdiv with Albena. It was like travelling with a friend. We got to see the sights, the old town, even enjoyed a baptism and shared the tradition of local bread with honey. We shared a love for cats, shopping and zumba. I am so looking forward to receiving the pictures she took.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathleen, a big thank you to you. Photos are coming soon! :)

This was our last day and the highlight of our stay in Bulgaria. Plovdiv is an amazing traditional city and our guide made our day even better by explaining the sites and taking us everywhere. We really enjoyed it and we recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Isabella, thank you for the lovely feedback. Your mother and you are wonderful and I enjoyed my time with you. Photos are coming soon. :) I hope you are having nice time in Greece. Yasou! :)

Albena took us to Plovdiv from Sofia for a day touring the old town. We had several requests which she took care of beautifully. Albena was charming as she drove us to and from Sofia and managed heavy traffic like a pro. She knew what she was talking about and even threw in some stories about her grandmother. Plovdiv is really unique and deserves a trip. Albena made our tour day very relaxed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joe, thank you for coming to Bulgaria and booking a tour with me. I am really happy that you both enjoyed the day and you had a nice time. It was pleasure meeting you. I also enjoyed the day and I am happy we made it on time for your meeting in Sofia. Best wishes, Albena

We enjoyed our tour of Plovdiv, and interesting city which has more of an 'old town' atmosphere than Sofia. It was nice to wander around the streets and hear Albena explain the history. She also chose a nice restaurant for our lunch.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia, I also enjoyed the tour of Plovdiv with your family. Thanks for booking tours with me. Best wishes from Sofia! Albena

Albena was a sweet and knowledgeable guide for our 3 days in Bulgaria. She customized an itinerary to include both Sophia and Plodiv sites given our time constraints. She made an extra effort to satisfy my husband's interest in railroads by contacting Bulgarian rail authorities and arranging a special private tour of their maintenance facility in Sophia. She did extra research to find great restaurants that would appeal to my "foodie" interests.
