Hi there! I'm Svetoslav from Traventuria. I'm passionate about showing the best that Bulgaria has to offer in various 1-day trips to cultural and historical locations. On this tour, either I, Lubo or Martin will be your guides for the day. The three of us have vast knowledge, experience and you'll see for yourself one of the oldest cities in the world.

It was a nice experience meeting with Lubo. He transmitted me the Bulgarian culture and spirit as well as his hospitality. He knows very well the town, its history, secret places and he was always willing to help and to fully enjoy the experience. I leave a friend. Thanks Lubo

This was a really good way to see as much as possible and learn about Plovdiv. With excellent background information and with good humour

The Plovdiv tour was very enjoyable. Martin was very knowledgable about the old town and made it very insightful and fun for everyone. Transportation was good however we were unsure which bus to meet at as there were multiple groups of tours happening at the same pick up point.
