Bulgaria Tours & Holidays

Bulgaria is one of the Balkans' most exuberant nations in virtually every possible way.

From its mist-shrouded mountains and shimmering coastline, to its lively folk soundtrack and intriguing ancient mythology - there's an unexpected surprise at almost every turn. And, while it has experienced an at-times-too-quick growth spurt in the last decade, visitors will find Bulgaria to be a country of fascinating culture, impressive sights and extremely gracious hospitality.

If you are interested in travel to lesser known places, this is the trip for you! Bulgaria was an experience I will never forget. Gigi was the perfect leader. Plovdiv was an absolute highlight - We will be back!

This was such a fantastic trip which included so many varied and beautiful parts of Romania/Bulgaria. It is well paced and allowed us to make the most of the time we had in each town/city, so that we could get a feel for local life there. The use of local transport added to the fun of our time together, allowed us to meet local people and also meant that we could take in the beautiful and changing scenery. Our leader, Dusan, was fantastic and made sure that we had a great time together. I highly recommend this trip if you want to explore the lesser known side of Europe.

Excellent middle ground between travelling alone and going on the mega-bus tour

The trip on the whole, was an eye opener for me - as there is always far more emphasis on Western Europe. My high points were - inclusion of towns that I may not have gone on my own, the use of public transportation, the locally sourced accommodation, the free time that allowed us to investigate on our own and the visits to the non profit organizations. Kudos Intrepid - I am a fan for life.

We loved Bulgaria! This tour is jam packed with a great itinerary. There are too many highlights to mention them all, Plovdiv is a favorite for me and the hike in the Pirin mountains, We would definitely return to Bulgaria. Thank you Tanya for making this tour so memorable for us! We highly recommend.
