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 and one of the most historically significant cities of the Bulgarian Revival period.

Overall a nice trip to get you oriented with plovdiv and the mountainous village koprivshtitsa.. I felt there wasn't enough time especially in the village just to sit in there and soak it in. Out of 7 there were 3 individuals of Israeli origin that were loud and talkative often to the point of blurring what the guide was saying but that's not the fault of the tour operator.. Would love to either have a longer trip or to split it into parts.

Had a good time, would have just enjoyed going to Plovdiv more than both places. Chris has a lot of information and this is good if you want an in depth guided tour not a self-guided one.

Une belle journée à Plovdiv et au très beau village au nom imprononçable de K. Traventura est une agence, mais Chris est un guide très sympathique, qui m'a accompagné dans toutes les 6 maisons à visiter dans le village de K. Excellentes crêpes à la confiture de fruits rouges à K. Chris connaît tous les bons coins. A recommander sans hésitation.
