Testimonials

Pavlina impressed me tremendously on this tour. She presented the 8000+ year history of Plovdiv effortlessly, weaving it all together as we walked through the main square and traveled down the cobblestone streets.
Everyone needs to see this city to appreciate how much history this region has, and I would recommend Pavlina to anyone interested. Her choice of restaurant for a traditional Bulgarian meal exceeded my expectations as well. A very memorable time I won’t forget.

Mr David Baker - One Day Tour to Plovdiv

Pavlina is extremely passionate about history in Sofia, and her excitement and commanding grasp of historical time periods comes out in her tours. When you tour with her, you get a great sense of the deep history of Bulgaria, and the status of Bulgaria during the present. I was constantly impressed by her knowledge and ethic in giving tours – she insists on giving her best tour each time she does. I consider her an authority on Bulgaria and would recommend her to anyone.

 

Mr David Baker – Tour of Sofia

Pavlina is an intelligent, articulate, and extremely knowledgeable tour guide. Her easy smile and pleasant demeanor combined with her flexibility contribute to her professionalism. Pavlina is an asset to the Bulgarian tourist industry and she is far and away the best tour guide I’ve ever employed.
Pavlina created two custom itineraries for me during my recent excursions to Bulgaria and was able to modify them en route when I asked her to add or change the locations. Pavlina also recommended sites which one guidebook completely overlooked.
The accommodations and meals which she selected were always clean, comfortable, and delicious.
Pavlina has my highest recommendation for those seeking to tour Bulgaria.

Mr Kelly McGrew, USA

My husband and I have visited over 80 countries and, in the process we have had many guides, but none the quality of Pavlina. She obviously loves her work and it shows. We spent just a week with her in Bulgaria and have decided to go back to Bulgaria next year to spend more time with her in Bulgaria and some contiguous areas. The trip to the Rila Monastery by way of the Bristritsa residence was amazing. We loved the historic town of Plovdiv. From there we saw Batchkov and then onto Veliko Tarovo. There is so much more to see in Bulgaria. Loved the food, the peolpe, most of the commodations are very good, but most of all we loved being with Pavlina. Can’t wait to get back!!
Side note: The morning we were driving to the Romania boarder the car seems to have a problem and we walked out of the hotel to see her under the car implementing a fix!! What a gal!!

Mr and Mrs Schulman, USA

Hi Pavlina, 

Just wanted to let you know we had a great time in Bulgaria with you. We really enjoyed everything we saw, and to learn so much about your history and culture. We have some wonderful memories. Hopefully we will be able to return one day and see those areas we did not have time for. We will definitely allocate more time for sightseeing. There is so much to see.
Thanks for sharing your very interesting country with us.

What an incredible week touring in Bulgaria. Pavlina is Bulgaria’s hidden gem! She is well versed and extremely knowledgeable regarding her homeland – the history, sites and culture. Each day was a great adventure! She created a tour to meet our needs highlighting several UNESCO sites, spas, a winery, interesting cities and incredible mountain passes. We relished every moment touring – we would recommend Pavlina without reservation.

Pavlina I wish to thank you for arranging this successful tour. I would also like to point out that I have been impressed by the professionalism and efficiency that you have demonstrated in arranging this tour.

Mr and Mrs Meletiou, Geneve, France

We did have a particularly rousing evening at a restaurant in Plovdiv (I cannot remember the name) which featured good food, live entertainment and some spontaneous local dancing by several private party groups. What a riot of fun!! By the way, Pavlina was kind enough to drop us off at the restaurant and pick us up later in the evening. She thought it would be easier than a taxi. Finally a grateful nod to you and the driver. You were superb. Please feel free to use us as references should you wish and to be certain that we will enthusiastically endorse your services to any one interested in travel to Romania or Bulgaria.

Mrs Zeba Jawaid, Pakistan

We were six persons started our tour from Romania, through Bulgaria to Turkey. The tour was organized by Pavlina of Easy Bulgaria Limited. Pavlina is a fantastic organizer, taking people to three different countries is not easy on logistics. We had three guides including Pavlina for the duration, we crossed all the borders smoothly during Middle Eastern Refugee crisis. Hats off to Pavlina for her meticulous planning. On the personal side she became one of us and we felt like travelling with another friend, no rush, no forcing the trips. Wealmost became family with her. We all agree that she is great and will highly recommend to anyone traveling in that area.
