Itinerary

Walking tour in Nessebar, approximatley 1.5 hours 20 minute drive to Giliovca village Visiting a contemporary house in Giliovca village, guided visit for approximatley 40 minutes Travelling to Erketch village, drive will take around 30 minutes Visiting a house in Erketch and the village, approximatley 1 hour and 10 minutes Travelling back to Nessebar Port, driving time is approximatley 50 minutes Return to Nessebar port

You will be met at the port by your Cruising Excursions representative ready to commence your walking tour of Nessebar.

From the port your professional English speaking guide will accompany you through the fortified walls, the entrance to Old Nessebar, opening up into a maze of quaint cobbled streets.  As we walk through the old town your guide will be pointing out the most important buildings which prompted UNESCO to include the town in its list of World Heritage Sites in 1983.

After the walking tour of Nessebur the tour will then move onto a panoramic drive into the mountains to two villages situated 30km from Nessebur.  The first village we will stop at is Giliovca village.  The guide will walk you through describing the village life and how it has not changed for centuries, discover the traditions and get the feel of how the people from this village go on with their day to day way of living.

In Giliovca village we are able to visit a typical house, see where the vegetable and fruit produce is grown and take part in tasting some local home made brandy known locally as Rakia. 

After spending a little time talking to the family of the home in Giliovca and learning their culture we will then continue the tour to the next village - Erketch.

On the charming journey to Erketch, the guide will be pointing out the many beautiful pastures, the vegitation as we climb to an altitude of 530m above sea level and if you are lucky enough to be taking this tour in June, the pastures will be full of lavender!

Arriving into this quaint village of Erketch, again we will be able to visit a traditional home of the people, a home which still has an old machine to make lemonade.  Talk to the locals, get aquainted with their way of life.  Try some homemade cheese pastries and yoghurt, have some free time before we end the tour with a pcituresque drive back to the port of Nessebur.
