We traveled to Plovdiv on a small, comfortable bus. Chris, our tour guide was personable and informative. We toured around the main sites together in an unhurried fashion and then were given ample time to wander around on our own and to have lunch.I enjoyed the day quite a lot and was happy to be able to see another historical city in Bulgaria in such an easy way.

Everything was very nice except we had to wait an hour for a couple that never returned to the meeting spot. I would recommend.
