Managing Partner, Incoming Department Europe
Licensed Bilingual (English and German) Tour Guide
Tourism and Event Management expert with 19 years experience in organizing culture tours in Bulgaria. Personal travel advisor for travelers and tourism businesses. As a licensed Bilingual (English and German speaking) tour guide I try more people to feel the spirit of our land and learn about the treasures and the wisdom we have.
Travelling is a way of life for me and this brought me to visit 31 countries. I love to share my knowledge and experience, motivate and inspire others, develop and support new projects. And in this process to be the mediator and connect you as a guest with local people, culture, nature and show you Bulgaria in a personal, authentic way.
Co-founder of tour operator company Nvision Travel in 2008 and the brand Bulgaria Communism Tours for first time in Bulgaria in 2009.
Our travel experience in Bulgaria is what you will take with you back home, not the souvenirs. But you will remember the people, the authentic atmosphere, the honesty and the open hearts of Bulgarians. I am here to help you find them and recognize the true colors of Bulgaria.
Why tourism: It’s my calling.
In high school I fell in love with Geography, which sparked my interest about the travel industry. Therefore, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Tourism and a Master’s degree in European Integration. As a people-oriented person a second Master’s program attracted me in 2022 and I will dedicate the next 2 years to Organizational psychology and Cross-cultural management.
My professional career in the travel industry began in the summer of 2003. I started working for a leading tour operator company in Bulgaria (Li-Tour Ltd.), which dealt with Bulgarian heritage and cultural trips. For a period of 5 years in this role I had the chance to work with groups from Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Canada and France. In the winter of 2007 I spent 3 months as a trainee in a travel company in Dresden, Germany, where I dealt with student trips. This time was precious as it gave me the opportunity to think who I really wanted to be. Upon my return to Bulgaria, I knew it was time for a change.
I realized that if I wanted to grow and develop my ideas professionally, I had to have my own company. Hence, in the summer of 2008 we set up Nvision Travel and following this dream of mine has been an incredible journey by itself. That was the best decision I ever made and over the years I gained incredible experience, working with partners and travelers from all over the world. In one of my trips, a group from Taiwan gave me the name Betty. Currently, I have two official names: for my European friends it is Cveti and for my Asian friends – Betty. As a licensed tour guide and keen photographer, I started the first travel vlog in Bulgaria: www.bettytravels.com in 2015.
The love of wine and our home area inspired us to launch in 2022 our new brand Vidin Wine Tours: www.vidinwinetours.com .
All of that love and passion for traveling I put in our tours. I will be happy and excited indeed to share the beauty of Bulgaria with you. Nice to meet you and thank you for your interest in Bulgaria, in our culture and the trust in me as a local partner and guide for your authentic travel experience.
