Guide Nikolay Tsutsov runs multi-day rose-themed tours from his guesthouse in Kalofer village, 40km west of Kazanlâk. The medley of rose picking, steeping petals in simmering water and sampling rose-flavoured goodies is very popular, so book up to a year in advance of rose season (May to June) to avoid disappointment.
