Since it was low-season, I ended up being the only one on the tour, so instead of the bus, the guide came with her car and drove me everywhere, always cheerful and knowledgeable about Bulgarian and European History. I couldn't have asked for a better experience visiting such a beautiful place and learning so much about this unique country and its history. Totally worth your time.
