Two years ago, the vision of a few people became the reality of many. A new project was born that was to become the free tour of Plovdiv.
Since then, Free Plovdiv Tour has been introducing the city of Plovdiv to the world. In these two years, we have welcomed more than 4,700 people. Our team of enthusiastic guides have met, walked with, explained to, inspired, and made laugh these 4,700 travellers. But mostly, we have provided an insight into Plovdiv and its cultural heritage.
Our guests come from all over the world. The countries with most visitors are the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, France and, of course, Bulgaria. But as the positive reviews on Tripadvisor show, people from all countries enjoy what we share with them and the way we dо it. 🙂
To get a better perspective of what we’ve been up to in the past two years, take a look at these statistics:
We’ve organized more than 700 tours;
The total distance covered during these tours is about 1,900 km (~1,200 miles);
Our route includes the lovely Nebet hill which offers a beautiful panorama view of Plovdiv. Of course, that also means we’ve climbed and descended 280 km (170 miles) in total for these two years;
1,400 hours or 84,000 minutes of fun and interactive sightseeing have been delivered to our tourists.
As all our guests know, there is a tour every single day of the year. Whether it’s cloudy, raining, snowing, shining – or if the weather is doing all of these at the same time (:D), the guide with the Free Plovdiv Tour sign will be there and you can expect nothing short of two hours of fun and engaging infotainment (a very special mix of information + entertainment).
Here you can see for yourself:
“I can’t see the sun. Do you see it?”
“Ah, there it is! Just above your head.”
“Where did it go again!? Oh, well.“
To celebrate our second birthday, we are throwing a party and everyone is invited! Join us on July 13th (Sunday), at 6 PM on the Central Post Office. There will be lots of surprises, fun stories to tell, experience to share, and interesting people to meet. 🙂
To give you a small tease of how it will go, you can check out the pictures from our birthday last year.
