6-Day Private Boutique Tour: Wine and History of Bulgaria

By this, carefully selected itinerary, you will stay a bit out of the most touristic places of Bulgaria and get deeper in the atmosphere of our history, culture, the way of living in different time periods and, of course, the wine, which is seriously involved in it. We can say that this tour is more like a boutique one because it is a wonderful combination of nature, sightseeing, traditions with 2 overnights in some of the best chateau in Bulgaria, where you will enjoy great food, served with the appropriate wine.

The rest of the evenings you will enjoy beautiful towns and cities, like Tryavna, the Medieval capital of Bulgaria Veliko Tarnovo and the pearl on the Danube river - Ruse.
