Plovdiv - excursions and day trips

Whether you're a history buff or just like to travel, there are plenty of Plovdiv - excursions and day trips to choose from. You can visit the beautiful Old Town, explore the ancient Thracian tombs, or head out into the mountains for a day of hiking.

Plovdiv is an incredible city that has a rich and complex history. It is Europe's oldest town and has been inhabited since at least 6000 BC. Its Old Town has been reconstructed, and is full of galleries, shops, restaurants, and local artists. The city is surrounded by gorgeous mountains, and has the longest pedestrian street in Europe.

The area is also known for its wine production, which dates back to the Thracian civilization. There are several different wineries around the city that are worth visiting. For more information on wine, check out the Bulgarian wine museum.

You can take a day trip to the beautiful Valley of Roses, which is popular in the late spring and early summer. This area has its own festival and is a perfect day trip from Plovdiv. This region is also home to Mavrud, a very famous wine. If you are interested in hiking, you can take the Rila Lakes hike. There is a guided hike that you can take, and you'll get round-trip transportation and an English-speaking guide. If you'd rather go on your own, the hike is very easy and you can hike for just over two hours.


You can also head out to the nearby town of Asenovgrad, which is also known as the Bulgarian Jerusalem. You'll find that the town is very pretty and you'll definitely want to visit the medieval fortress. This fortress was built in the 16th century and it was once used by Ivan-Asen II, the king of Bulgaria. This fortress is one of the best-preserved fortresses in the country and has amazing views. The town is located near the beautiful Rila monastery, and you'll have access to it on your tour.

You can also take a day trip to the charming village of Koprivshtitsa. This small town has an interesting history and is easily accessible by public transport. You'll find that the area is filled with unique homes and buildings. You can also enjoy a meal at a cafe or restaurant and take a stroll through the charming streets.

If you're not in the mood for a walk, you can also visit the Buzludzha Monument, which is a futuristic looking saucer-shaped building that was once the Communist Party headquarters. Despite being in disrepair after Communism fell, it's still a great day trip from Plovdiv.


You can also visit the Bachkovo monastery, which is the second-largest in Bulgaria. You'll be able to learn more about the monastery's history and see its impressive collection of church objects. You can even stop by the museum to look at its many exhibits, which include ancient weapons and intricate national costumes.

If you're interested in visiting the Seven Rila Lakes, you'll have the opportunity to do so on a guided hike. This is a scenic hike that you'll enjoy for sure. You'll receive round-trip transportation and an English-speaking driver, and you'll be able to cancel your tour up to 24 hours before it starts.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
