Authentic Bulgaria Tour is a program, that I designed few years ago when I realized how beautiful and undiscovered the Bulgarian countryside was. My idea was to give the chance to my clients to indulge in the magic of the rural part of the country. I included unique features such as home hosted meals, first hand crafts and interaction with locals. I think that this is the best way to get familiar with the every day life of the locals. In most of the places included in the program, the people rarely see foreigners. That is why, they are happy and even a bit shy to communicate. You will get a big smile from an old man or will collect plums from a plumtree on the street. This is the uniqueness of the experience called Authentic Bulgaria.
