Our guide was great, he knew everything about everything It covers most attractions and landmarks that you can come back to later. The website said 11am/6pm daily but when we got to the meeting point we found ourselves and a couple of lost souls wandering around..apparently the time changes seasonally and it was supposed to be 2pm (found out from...

Having done the Sofia tour, we knew we needed to do the Plovdiv free walking tour. Our guide (Illiya) was friendly, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He made the tour exciting and was open to asking any questions. Really recommend a tour to get to know Plovdiv better!

Every day at 14:00 in front of the town hall. Lasts between 2 and 3 hours. Wear good shoes, because of the irregular pavement and hills. Our guide, Iliya, brought to life the town and its various elements in a clear and excellent English.

Very nice city tour made by Dess who was very energetic and willing to provide us with information about her city. I loved the city of Plovdiv and I would love to visit it again in 2019 when it will be the European capital of culture.
