I am licensed mountain leader and have graduated from the University of Plovdiv with a masters degree in "Social and cultural activities in tourism".
During the years I have worked for various companies in different aspects of tourism field which is the reason for my diverse background and interests. Building up experience and knowledge I am now at the point where I found a little more confidence to try and set up a way to work independently!
My vision is tours designed to combine and provide the most of both natural and anthropogenic resources and activities such as hiking, cycling, mountain biking. Thus adding more value to the ordinary sightseeing tours.
I see this as a way to express my personal opinion and views for the travel & tourism business as a traveler and nature lover myself and relying on my professional experience bringing up products which are more complex, interesting and satisfactory.
Now I am working on Bike and SPA, Hike and SPA tours, Cross country MTB, combining some of the greatest assets Bulgaria has.
I am happy to share the beauty of my country with you!
Thank you for choosing me.
Recent reviews of this tour guide:
What a wonderful guide is Velislav. Easy-going, flexible, friendly and with such excellent English I felt like I was traveling with a witty and funny friend rather than a guide. As a guide, he's everything you want: punctual, knowledgeable and well-planned. I wanted to see a wide variety of sites covering substantial distances in just three days and he managed to organise everything I wanted and even squeeze in a few extras we discovered along the way. I thoroughly recommend Velislav to everyone
