One of the best tour guide that I’ve ever met :)
Velko was very flexible in his arrangements and he even customized and suggested some itineraries for my friend and me. We were initially interested in doing a hike in the Rila Mountains, but because it is not an optimal time to hike there, Velko suggested doing a Canyon Waterfalls one-day hike at Rhodope Mountain and a visit to Shiroka Laka Village. Velko even included a traditional picnic lunch for us up in the mountain. So glad that we took up Velko’s recommendation!
Velko is a tour guide who really does more than what is required of him.
At Shiroka Laka Village, Velko was planning to bring us to a museum but it was closed on a Sunday and he even went to call to see if they are able to open up the museum for us. Even though there was no answer, we ended up having a small tour around a local guest house there. After that, Velko brought us to see a church to tell us more about the history there. On the way back to Plovdiv city center, Velko made several stops along the way to make sure that we get a good view of the beautiful Vacha Dam. Furthermore, he also detoured just to show us the Rowing Canal (not part of the itinerary).
I truly enjoyed myself on this one day hike at Rhodope Mountain with Velko and would definitely recommend his services! 101% won’t regret!
It was indeed my most memorable day in Bulgaria thanks to Velko
