To concur previous reviews, Plami was our tour guide and you can tell right from the beginning that she was an excellent orator, incredibly passionate about her city, and nothing short of a walking encyclopedia. She will clarify common misconceptions you never thought you had,...More

The tour was given by Plami, an amazing guide! She was very interesting. Even after 4 tours in Bulgaria, we've learned much more about the country and about Tarnovo. Don't miss it!

We did the free city walk about Sreet art. It is an alternative walk which starts at 6 p.m.. It takes between 2 to 3 hours, and shows you some special corners of the city. Very interesting and original.
