One of my most memorable tours. Diana was knowledgeable and never rushed me. Bachkovo monastery is stunning, guilded murals and a lavish iconostasis. Views around Asen's fortress are stunning. Plovdiv is built on the Roman city, the mosaic collection alone makes it worth visiting. Thank you BulTrips.

This was a really great trip. Our guide Georgi was very knowledgable about the history of the region, as well as sharing with us lots of information about Bulgarian culture, langage, history, politics, symbology of monastry artwork etc... Super informative and would definitely recommend. The sites themselves were beautiful and interesting to visit.

Considering the weather, Daniel did the best any one could. It rained all day. A couple of the house museums were not open, to his surprise, due to a positive COVID test. He drove in the pouring rain and got us there and back safely. He’s very knowledgeable and friendly and a good driver.

Amazing experience with Phillip. He picked us up promptly at 0900 and we took off in a private Van to Asen’s Fortress. Beautiful view and place. After about 45 minutes we drove for 20 to Bachkovo monastery which is a must see place if in Bulgaria. Plovdiv ended the trip after lunch at a local Bulgarian restaurant. Phillip was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and very patient with our 2 year old. A great trip I would recommend anyone doing from Sofia to capture other great sites.

Itinerary

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Plovdiv Old Town, Plovdiv 4000 Bulgaria

The tour starts with pick up from your hotel/accommodation in Sofia. After approximately an hour and a half drive, we will reach Plovdiv. Plovdiv is said to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in Europe. The city has cultural and economic significance both in the past and in the present due to its strategic location. Pieces of evidence of its millennial history can be found all over the place – from the Roman Theatre to the Ottoman mosques. This is the reason why Plovdiv is one of the most charming sights in Bulgaria- wherever you look you will find history, a legend from a different period, traces of glorious past and at the same time, it’s a pleasure to see how vivid is it still and how it continues to develop and writes its new history. There we will visit the highlights – the Roman Theatre, the Roman Stadium, and have a walk in the Old Town with typical for the Revival Period house museums and narrow cobblestone streets. Afterward, we will have lunch.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Assenova krepost (Asen's Fortress), Asenovgrad 4000 Bulgaria

When we are done with our traditional Bulgarian lunch, we will head towards the final destination of the tour – Asenova Fortress (approx. 25 min drive from Plovdiv). Asen's Fortress is situated on the top of a cliff in Rodopi Mountain, at approx. 20 km distance from Plovdiv. It is a Medieval fortress with a rich history and breathtaking view.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Bachkovo Monastery, 10km south of Asenovgrad on the main road between Assenovgrad and Smolyan, Bachkovo 4251 Bulgaria

After feasting our eyes on the beauties of nature, we will drive to the Bachkovo monastery. This is the second biggest monastery in Bulgaria and one of the oldest. It was established in the late XI century by a man for Georgia. The monastery later became part of the Bulgarian church. It suffered a lot from the turbulence of the time and keeps a lot of history and drama.

Duration: 30 minutes
