Tour Agency Plovdiv - Unique tours around Plovdiv and Bulgaria

Waterfall day hike + visit to the Shiroka laka village

Managed to find Velislav (from Localite Tour) after googling for quite a while trying to find hikes near Plovdiv in Bulgaria and am glad that I’ve decided to go with it!

Only contacted Velislav 3 days before the actual hike and I got quick replies from him, along with some suggestions to make the hike a better one. Velislav is very passionate about Bulgaria and throughout our trip into the Rhodope mountains, he pointed out some interesting facts about the various attractions that we’ve passed by and even took the scenic drive to show us best views of the valleys within the Rhodope mountains.

The waterfall hike itself was amazing and it has lots of unforgettable views.

I thought it was pretty thoughtful of Velislav to suggest having a picnic lunch on top of one of the view points of the waterfall and we had some traditional Bulgarian food. The visit to Shiroka laka village was an eye-opening experience for me as I visited a traditional house, learned more about its culture and visited a church in the village (there isn’t such an experience in Singapore).

I visited Plovdiv with no expectations and this is definitely the best day of my Bulgaria trip! It was indeed a wonderful experience and I look forward to exploring the Rila mountains next time with Velislav again! I highly recommend his services.
Thank you once again, Velislav! :)

Customize as you like

I booked Localite for my boyfriend who had to spend two days in Plovdiv. Velislav customized the two day-tours per our requests, was flexible on the pace of the tour and delivered a lovely experience. My boyfriend was thrilled to walk for hours and explore various areas of Plovdiv, learn about the history, people watch, and see a couple of museums too.
Velislav was very friendly and approachable, spoke excellent English, and took great photos of my boyfriend during the tour.
Highly recommended!

The Waterfall tour created one of the best days I had in Bulgaria

Nature, culture and serenity. A picturesque trip to Smolyan took me to the border of this lovely country and then, Velislav kindly welcomed us into his hometown. The Waterfall tour was incredible; full of great scenes of waterfalls – both huge and small ones and also of the surrounding mountains. You will literally feel like you are on top of the world at some points in the tour.

I definitely recommend it! :)

Seven Rila lakes hike tour from Plovdiv

A very personal (able) Trip into the Rila mountain range

I picked Velislav from a group of possible guides just because he seemed like the guy most likely not to mind getting dirty. We ended up doing a pretty much all day hike into the Rila mountains and the seven lakes, then back down to a gondola and eventually over (by car) to Rila Monastery.

Velislav combines all the good traits of a guide

Knowledgeable about the area and its history, passionate about his homeland, friendly, professional (he made sure we stayed hydrated and brought plenty of snacks)…and sturdy! I really couldn’t have asked for more.
We climbed a little over 3,100 feet in 2 1/2 hours (he’ll tailor his tour to whatever you want), ending with a view into the highest of the seven lakes at about 8,500 feet. It was a wonderful experience and I will look forward to calling Velislav the next time I’m in Bulgaria.

Biking tour Plovdiv agency

Absolutely wonderful MTB cycling tour arranged for us, close to Plovdiv in the mountains

We were collected from our hotel, but a team of two cars, three people and the bikes we required. Very helpful and pleasant team and the bikes were top quality. We were driven to the mountains, where we started our mountain biking adventure. The route chosen was beautiful, the landscape extraordinarily unspoilt. Our cycling guide was very helpful and spoke excellent English. We stopped off at some excellent places for a tea break and for lunch. All in all a wonderful day and highly recommended.

Velko Kasamov was realy good quide.

He prepared for us interesting program. We had got the opportunity to experience large part of Rodopi in a short time. Velko knows this area very well and likes it. He was able to change program when the weather had changed or we got tired. He has sence of humor and he is polite. We had four wonderful days. thank you, Velko.

Waterfalls Canyon Hiking Tour Plovdiv

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
