Excellent trip well organised great guide. Saw skull tower and concentration camp. Roads from Sofia were very quiet and the border crossing was quick.

I had an amazing trip through Bulgaria to Nis. Mihail (Michael), our guide, was friendly and a success peen driver. What really set him apart was his precise knowledge of not only Nis but the entire Balkan region. I think it was smart to go in the winter, though it was 0 C, but there wasn’t any waiting at the border and not so many tourists. The concentration camp visit is at the end as it’s a sad and sobering experience. Thanks Michael!!!

Really great day, did take only 30 mins for border, can take over 2 hours July/Aug.
Guide was very nice and knowledgeable, transport was in an eight seater minivan.
The drive through the gorge was stunning.
Couple of tips, you can exchange euros to local currency just after the border, toilets at the border you pay for and are squatting, if you can wait normal toilets in the city. For your free time most restaurants speak English, and best facilities are in the shopping mall.

Good place to go food shopping. Wonderful farm market. Worth visiting the Skull Tower and Concentration Camp.

Excellent tour even though it is a bit pricey, but I am the only person so it is worth it. The newly constructed road to Nis is breathtakingly beautiful in autumn!
