Tour description provided by Viator

Visit some Bulgarian villages in the mountains, 30 km away from Nessebar, where the manners of life are kept naturally the same as before centuries! Feel the spirit of the traditions and see the real shine of Bulgaria. A guided trip for small groups.
You will make a short brake for visiting a contemporary house in Giliovca village, where you can see the vegetable garden and the small holding, having an opportunity to talk with the hosts. Taste some vegetables or fruits grown in the garden there and say 'cheers' when tasting the local homemade brandy called rakia. On the way to the village of Erketch enjoy the beautiful scenery, the pasture grounds and the lavender massif (it blossoms in June). Picturesquely situated at an altitude of 530 m this village will steal your heart with its unique charm. Here nature, traditions and everyday life coexist together. Visit one of the houses in the village with an old manufacturer for lemonade and an ethnographic exhibition with authentic traditional clothes and costumes. You will have the opportunity to wear these costumes and take some pictures. Taste banitsa (traditional cheese pastry) and some home-made yogurt as well.
