The Rhodopes hold a special place in the hearts of Irina and Paul and it is sooooo obvious when you accompany them to their favorite spots there. Spiritual stirrings are sure to happen and these folks are in it for the right reason---they want to share their passion with YOU for these very special mountains (with their centuries old mystique and breathtaking views)!

Irina and Paul are the best tour guides we could have asked for! My partner and I are not typically the type of travellers who like to go on tours, but we couldn't resist when we saw this tour with local food, wine, and history.
Irina and Paul really made the tour unique with their extensive knowledge and personable nature. They showed us parts of Plovdiv that we would have never found on our own and don't get me started on the food! Everywhere we stopped was locally owned and off the beaten track.
I can't say enough good things about Slow Tours-a definite must for anyone who wants to get a real taste of Plovdiv.
Thank you Irina and Paul!

My wife, my daughter and her friend and myself did this tour on April 25th,2018. We can fully recommend this tour. The focus of this tour is a combination of nature, history and culture. Irina was our guide and she knows a lot of the history and culture of the places we visited. She also tells a lot about Plovdiv (historical matters, good restaurants, good wine bars...) She also inspired us as she was telling a lot about the nature during the tour. We really enjoyed the tour as it was not a rush from one place to another. Irina even took us for a walk so that we got a good view on the natural bridges. Enough time was spent in the monastary and at the fortress and again Irina told us a lot about this places and its history. And during the tour there was also a stop at a local little restaurant to taste Bulgarian food for a reasonable price. So it was a wonderful day for the four of us. If you are in Plovdiv, do not hesitate and book this tour. You will certainly not be disappointed.

This informative walking tour hosted by Irina and Paul gives your eyes, your mind and your soul time to take in this lovely experience. They are both wonderful storytellers and have a deep knowledge of the history, art, architecture and customs of Plovdiv. With great patience and enthusiasm, all of my questions were answered as we walked The Old Town. They love what they do! Irina and Paul went above and beyond to make this slow walking tour of Plovdiv a memorable, positive experience. Walk with them!!

I was so very pleasantly surprised by the tour. I'd never been to Bulgaria and hadn't travelled in a group for a couple years either. However, immediately on meeting Irina at Plovdiv airport arrivals I could tell that she's a warm and friendly person. She made everyone in the group feel at ease. Always engaging and easy to get along with. She gave us all a lot of great information about Plovdiv history and culture during our walking tours. The city felt like a magical place during the wine tasting tour as it seemed everyone was out for wine tasting feeling nicely buzzed. She took the group to some more local and authentic eateries, which is always more welcome than touristy restaurants. All in all, I would definitely avail her services if I were to go to Plovdiv again and would certainly recommend her to any fellow traveller.
