DERTOUR Gruppenreisen and DTS Bulgaria organized a FAM Trip

for travel experts to discover the almost well-known destination Bulgaria in its unknown faces as a cultural, round trip and group destination.

The research trip was a mini round tour of Bulgaria and ended on the Bulgarian coast, where there is much to discover outside the sun & beach season. The focus was on the joint travel programs: the brochure round trip „Highlights of Bulgaria“ and the based trip „Bulgaria during the lavender blossom“, but also many other joint specials like „Agricultural programme“, „Bulgaria green programme“ etc. The idea is to make Bulgaria better known with its diverse possibilities for cultural, culinary, nature & hiking, skiing, city breaks, medical, wine tourism and much more. Even „just“ a based trip on the coast has a lot to offer with varied topics such as lavender, truffles, nature, SPA, culinary delights (wine, schnapps, excellent cuisine) and more.


In a short time, the group visited many places such as Sofia capital, Plovdiv European Capital of Culture 2019 with its great old town and the nightlife in the Kapana neighbourhood. The group was hosted by a Bulgarian family in their distillery in the village of Troyanovo. Nessebar UNESCO coastal town and the seaside capital of Varna were of course not to be missed. The hosts inland were the Hotel Holiday Inn Plovdiv and on the coast – Albena Resort with the Hotel Flamingo Grand Resort & SPA. Detailed presentations and tours in Albena as well as many hotel visits in the Varna coastal region were on the programme. On the way, the journey led through lush landscapes, accompanied by beautiful sunsets. Cape Kaliakra, the Botanical Garden in Balchik and the special wine tasting at the Wine Club Varna were definitely the highlights of the programme for many.

A very special thanks
