A healthy, fun introduction to Plovdiv!

I’ve done a number of the Free Walking Tours available in many cities, and have found them to be a nice alternative to their more commercialized counterparts. The guides have always been enthusiastic, and the tour offered by the nonprofit 365 Association was no different.
We met and departed on time from the Municipal Building, lead by our guide, Nenko, a Plovdiv native who spent much of his youth in the U.S.,but has returned to his home and is a molecular biology student. His knowledge of the history, culture, and architecture of Plovdiv was impressive,but presented in a way that was both entertaining and inclusive, inviting group questions and participation. It was an excellent introduction to Plovdiv, and Nenko offered excellent recommendations for further investigation if you’re in town for more than the day. Please keep in mind that the guides are not salaried employees, and that they rely on your tips to support themselves!


Amazing Graffiti Tour

Our tour guide Adi did an amazing job of informing us about the Graffiti and Street art in Plodiv. She gave detailed descriptions of the street art and walked us around the city. I would definitely recommed this tour.

Free Walking Tour Plovdiv + Plovdiv Graffiti Tour

We had a free walking tour with Iliya. The tour itself is just what you’d want – not too long, but not too short; takes you to all the main places and allows you to feel a lot more comfortable even if this is your fist visit (for us, it wasn’t, but still). Iliya was excellent: able to tell the story in an interesting way; perfect English; friendly, open, motivated and enthusiastic; had or quickly found answers to all our questions; explained things not only about the city, but about Bulgaria, also the association and the tours themselves; was prepared with interesting facts about the places we visited. I recommend this for all tourists.

Graffiti Tour (Iliya, as above): really awesome and goes beyond a normal tour of a new city. Shows you the artistic side of the city and it makes you see it differently than just a town with people, buildings and sites; great for letting you feel the spirit of Plovdiv. Iliya was once again very well prepared, enthusiastic, friendly – everything I say above. I firmly recommend this tour for anyone – if you only have time for 1 tour, I’d recommend this one as it makes you FEEL the city more than see it.

Nice tour

Definitely recommend. Our tour got rained out, but instead of leaving us, our guide stayed to wait it out with us at a cafe. She shared some photos and info with us while we waited and the whole group had a nice time. We continued the tour after they rain, and she showed us to a great dinner location long after her duties as tour guide were fulfilled. Great service and great to hear from locals who love their city!

Very good tour

Started Just on time. Good speaking English. Interesting information. We got to places we missed while strolling around our selfs. The guide had lots of self-Bulgarian humour (regarding the nation) which was really funny and cute….. Recommended

Interesting and informative

Good overview of the history of the city and a pleasant walk around some of the key sights of this fascinating, ancient city. Wear comfortable footwear to navigate the cobbled streets of the old town.

Wonderful tour of this beautiful city

I decided to do the Free Plovdiv tour after I tried the Free Sofia Tour and loved it. It was once again fantastic. A great way to find my way around the city see all of the sights without getting lost. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the whole tour very interesting. I strongly recommend you take the tour in both Plovdiv and Sofia!

Иnformative and fun

Great quick way to see the basics with an english speaking guide. I found their knowlesge of history a bit lacking, but overall very informative. Tip is expectes. 20 leva seems about right.

Do not miss. Excellent!

About two and a half hours. Super interesting! Free but please leave a nice tip. That’s how the guides get paid.



I did the Free Plovdiv Tour with a friend. It was highly informative and a very interesting introduction to the history of Bulgaria and the gorgeous town Plovdiv. Next to historical and cultural aspects, stories of the recent past of Plovdiv are a part of the tour and make it even more interesting. The tour provides many beautiful scenic places for panorama photos and selfies! Highly recommended!!!
