Greek Tourists, Student Groups Set Their Sights on Bulgaria

BANSKO – The end of October and first couple of weeks of November will see thousands of Greeks, led by student groups, visiting Bulgaria, said Greek tour operators, a holiday period and people eager to go.

That was a report in the Bulgaria news site Novinite which said there is especially interest in bus bus excursions to Burgas and Varna while students want to go to Bansko and groups of pensioners are heading for monasteries.

Tour operators in Northern Greece report that they have almost run out of available places for excursions to Bulgaria at the end of October, the costs in Bulgaria lower than Greece, which uses the strong euro.

There are also many individual tourists who, along with walking and shopping in Bulgaria, buy vouchers for a spa holiday, the tour operators report.
