Bulgaria Tours & Vacations

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.

My Eastern European tour with Intrepid, led by Sasa, was an extraordinary journey. Sasa's impeccable guidance, insightful knowledge, and warm camaraderie made every moment unforgettable. An enriching adventure that exceeded all expectations. Highly recommended

This tour was a wonderful mix of culture, (complicated)history, amazing food great company and breath taking scenery. Pavle was a great leader, knowledgeable, amusing and interesting to listen to. Really loved Sarajevo and our dinner with local couple was very memorable as they had lived through the siege and hearing first hand experiences was an eye opener. A unique part of the world with beautiful landscapes, put it on your must see list!

Premium Balkans

Mary · Traveled July 2023
Go, if only for your eyes: this trip has got eye-opening history, eye-popping scenery, and eye-catching cultural diversity. The visit to a beautiful private home in Sarajevo for a cooking lesson and dinner and conversation was itself worth a trip across the Atlantic.
