Hello, my name is Demi, I've been working in the tourist industry for the last 5 years and what I've noticed is, tourists are highly interested in the history behind our infamous Bulgarian rose so I decided to create an experience dedicated to the Valley of Thracian Kings in the Bulgarian Rose Valley.

Me and my friends booked this experience and it turned out it was the absolute highlight of our trip! Standing in the middle of the Rose fields, taking in the Rose aroma is absolutely unforgettable. Then we got to visit the amazing Ancient Thracian tomb. It is definitely the Egyptian pyramids of Bulgaria! Our driver was so easy-going and passionate about his job, we have no complaints! We highly recommend this experience to anyone!
