The Waterfalls canyon hike from Plovdiv created one of the best days I had in Bulgaria!

A picturesque trip from Plovdiv to Smolyan took us to the border of this lovely country and Velislav kindly welcomed me to his hometown.

The Waterfalls canyon tour was incredible; full of great scenes of waterfalls. You will literally feel like you are on top of the world at some points on the tour.

I definitely recommend it! :)

We did a 1 week Bulgaria tour focused on the culture, history and beauty of the countryside.

We stayed at wonderful guest houses in cities and remote villages and ate fantastic food.We hiked mountains, explored caves and saw the sites. Most importantly, we gained an appreciation of what it means to be Bulgarian.

We have been on 5 tours in Europe and our guide was the best. Practical, knowledgeable, honest and a great story teller.

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.

Very friendly and approachable, spoke excellent English, and took great photos of my boyfriend during the tour.

Highly recommended!

I love to combine the sightseeing trips around Plovdiv with local experiences and outdoor activities.

There is so much to see near Plovdiv your sightseeing tour can have value added to it by including hiking, traditional food and wine tasting, even SPA if you wish.

You will find yourself carried away by a fascinating story of a historical landmark in one moment. Then admiring amazing panoramic views on a hike or enjoying a local dish in the next moment.

All set up in a well organized and balanced manner.

Whether it is a Bulgaria travel itinerary or a Plovdiv sightseeing tour it can be customized to fit your personal interests.

I believe that being actively involved in the travel, discover and experience process, will bring you increased confidence, satisfaction, better health and great value.

My goal is to organise Bulgaria tours and travel services that are low-impact, ecological, socially compatible and highest quality.

After all, we cannot add more days to our lives, but we can add life to our days!

Testimonials

The guide is very friendly, has good English and has very good knowledge about Bulgaria. He is very passionate about the culture of his country, which directly reflects on the quality of the tour.

We were a group of 4 people and had requested a very intense trip. The timing and organization felt perfect.

I would totally recommend Localite Tour to anyone, as it will go beyond your expectations of what a good tour is.

Francisco Retuerto Frances

One of the best tour guide that I’ve ever met :)

Velislav was very flexible in his arrangements. We did a hike tour from Plovdiv to the Waterfalls Canyon and a visit to Shiroka Laka Village. He even included a traditional picnic lunch for us up in the mountain.

I truly enjoyed myself on this one day hike on the Rhodope Mountain with Velko and would definitely recommend his services! 101% won’t regret!

Velislav guided me around Plovdiv for a day: we climbed some of its hills, ambled about the old town, dined at a local restaurant, frequented the old Roman sights, took in the old Gypsy district.

The best parts for me were a) that Velislav was adaptable, and didn’t sound scripted like a lot of guides do, and b) that he is just a friendly, kind, interesting person. His English is also excellent.

I’d recommend him without hesitation.

Richard Mellor

A very personal (able) Trip to the Rila mountain.

We ended up doing a pretty much all day hike into the Rila mountains and the Seven Rila lakes, then back down 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 and sturdy! I really couldn’t have asked for more.

Kevin Castner

Velislav Kasamov was a really good guide.
He prepared for us interesting program. We had got the opportunity to experience a 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 a sense of humor and he is polite. We had four wonderful days.

Thank you, Velko.
