What to expect:

This is a 10-hour private tour with an English-speaking driver, where you program the details of your itinerary.

The driving time is approximately 2-3 hours per direction, meaning you’ll have plenty of time to explore both locations in the planned itinerary.

Melnik is the smallest town in Bulgaria with only 208 inhabitants and still preserves part of its glory from 17th till 19th-century when it had been a flourishing tobacco and wine-producing center, whose fame was spread by local merchants to many European countries. Today, the city is famous for its lovely white houses and cobbled streets, mild climate and of course internationally recognized brands of red wine. You will be able to walk through the city and enter the biggest Bulgarian Revival Period style house and its tunnel-like wine cellar.

Rupite is a small village about a 30-minute drive from Melnik. It’s famous for the healing mineral springs in the area, as well as, being the resting place of one of the most famous Bulgarian prophets – Baba Vanga.
