Responded 22 Mar 2020
Dear Neil, Thank you for your review. You were scheduled to join a tour starting on March 15th at 08:00. Your "cancellation" came on March 15th at 23:45. Yes, your booking was considered as "no-show" and treated as per the standard booking condition. If you had let us know a day earlier that you would not be traveling (a fact, which for sure was clear to you already on March 14th), then your booking would've been refunded in full. We are sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to be of your service next time you visit Bulgaria. Best regards, Traventuria team

We had a great visit, our guide Lubo was knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. Plovdiv is colorful and quaint. Koprivshitsta was a journey that I could have skipped, small village with monument/museum to local revolutionary. Overall a great day!
