“What I love most about your tours is hard to describe, but it’s being able to visit potters and rug makers and not be led into the “sales” rooms. It’s being guided by people passionate about their country, it’s having time to discover a foreign land and let it unfold. It’s laughing with the locals as we dressed up and danced in the street. ( Deshka guesthouse). The balance between long hikes and shorter walks was excellent, the diversity of culture and nature was great. I really feel like I have seen a good cross section of Bulgaria.” – Louise
“Bulgaria amazed me and I loved the tour. I loved meeting our fellow travellers & sharing laughs, tears, triumphs & songs ( even if we only knew a couple of lines..) ….my word ! We knew a LOT of choruses.” – Christine
“It was a terrific tour. Thanks to you, and a big thanks to our guide Annie. She’s worth her weight in gold, though she’s too skinny for all that work.” – Laila
