Valkov Travel are the best, for sure! They took care of me and my whole family for the entire trip. I thought that our dog is going to be a problem, but they assured me that’s not a problem at all! The driver from Bulgaria Transfer even helped us to check in the hotel we had booked! I’m so glad that I used their services!

I wanted to see Bulgaria from long time now. What had always stopped me was my work, usually I’m traveling and working. After I heard about Valkov Travel, I talked with them and everything was arranged – I came in Bulgaria, a Driver took me from the airport and drove me wherever I needed to while I was working on my projects! They really know how to make you comfortable on your trip! I definitely going to use them again on my next trip to Bulgaria!
