What to expect:

This is a 12-hour private tour with an English-speaking driver, where you program the details of your tour.

The travel time to Veliko Tarnovo is approximately 3 hours each way, but you’ll have plenty of time to explore the city, as well as visit Arbanassi, which is close by.

The city is one of the oldest ones in Bulgaria and is situated on several hills. On one of these hills is the famous medieval Tsarevets fortress and the river which surrounds it – Yantra.

Another interesting location is the city is the main merchant street – Samovodska Charshia. Here you can see lots of small family-run craft shops, from which you can buy a variety of hand made souvenirs and trinkets.

After fully exploring Veliko Tarnovo, your last planned stop is the village of Arbanassi – an architectural and museum reserve. There you’ll discover the way of life of 18th-century Bulgarian merchants and craftsmen. You can also get to try the local cuisine specialties!

Price:

  • Car – 3 (4) seats – 149 Euro/vehicle
  • Minibus – 8 seats – 189 Euro/vehicle
