“Wow! I’ve done 5 Food & Wine Tours on various trips & this one was definitely one of the best! Our Guides, Stella & Marina, were knowledgable & charming, reading & adapting well to our groups interests - hence extra time in the wine tasting for our qualified group A+ The food stops were well thought through, everything was ready on time & provided tremendous variety to try. Generous quantities so start hungry! A young start up company, who go the extra mile to make clients happy. Highly recommend this quality tour.”
“We visited multiple venues, all primed & waiting for us, no hassles anywhere. Very knowledgable & enthusiastic Guides, nothing was too much trouble. The Wine tasting experience in particular was excellent (with my WSET3 hat on). Very informative & great wine selections provided. We didn't want to leave! Lunch was enormous with a large selection of local delicacies to explore. Our dessert stop was divine 🙂 A very well put together Tour, which leaves you with a far better understanding of Bulgarian culture. Highly Recommended.”
