A great mixture of culture, history, food and wine

Ivo’s English was amazing and we… Read more →

Fully satisfied!

We were fully satisfied with the Via Vino Monastery Wine Tasting tour. Our guide Lubo was a real value added because not only he was very kind and available, but he solved also unexpected small issues (a road closed on the way to the small church, and the consequent delay in the timeline) always letting us feel comfortable, and of… Read more →

I cannot recommend it enough to others

I was not sure what to expect but based on the tour, itself and the reviews, I cannot recommend it enough to others. The information was great and I learned so much more of the Bulgarian history. It was very customisable and always had the customer in mind. Lovely experience, I cannot wait to further wine tours with Ivaylo and… Read more →
