Private Guide Bulgaria Team

Hi there, I’m Adriana – a licensed and accredited tour guide and tour designer from Bulgaria.

For five years now I have specialized in designing and managing tours, both around my own homeland and throughout other countries in the Balkans. If you’re looking for a Bulgaria private tour guide able to combine knowledge, experience, local insight and a barrel-load of fun along the way… then you came to the right place! 

I graduated in Tourism Management and by combining my professional training with my own passion for this part of the world, I’m able to offer my guests tours that are both reliable and filled with genuine excitement. At the moment I am manager of “Olyushka EOOD” – tour operator and travel agency registered in 2005 under number 334 in the National Register of Registered Tour Operators and Travel Agents in Bulgaria.

As a travel professional I can tell you everything you want to know about Bulgaria – its folklore and traditions, its culture, history and legends – and on my private tours in Bulgaria I’ll be happy to customize an itinerary to perfectly serve the interests of your group. 

Private Guide Bulgaira

Meet my team!

All the tour are designed by me. I’m taking care of everything during the planning  and before you confirm your final itinerary. Usually, I lead all the tours by myself, but sometimes I involve other people to help me with driving or guiding. I work with professional mountain guides, photographers, drivers, pilgrim tour leaders, ski and snowboard teachers who lead the specialized tours.

All of them are positive young professionals with huge smiles and never-dying flair for adventures. Actually, I enjoy working with all of them, because they do what they love and love what the do and wouldn’t replace it for anything else in the world. Meet my team!

Je suis guide touristique depuis 7 ans en gardant la passion et la curiosité de l’histoire, des monuments et des sites. Chaque endroit me découvre sa magie que j’essaie de transmettre à mes invités francophones. Ma destination coup de coeur en Bulgarie est Stara Zagora et le musée de la bière. Ce que j’aime par dessus tout à Sofia est la vue de haut sur l’Ancien palais royal et l’entrée de la ville antique Serdika au coeur de la capitale.
