What people are saying about Blagoevgrad Province

Hi, I'm Simona and I did this excursion on October 30th 2022 with another girl. Beautiful place, it is absolutely not describable with photos and videos, but it must necessarily be experienced firsthand. It is difficult to climb to the top, but for the less trained, you can choose a shorter but always beautiful route !!! Perfect and very clear organization even for those who, like us, have a lot of difficulties with English.

We arrived at the meeting point which is very well explained on the ticket. Then there was a driver which took us to the farm where there are the horses. Apart from horses there are other animals which are super super cute. We then started the horse riding experience, where by the owner and the helpers were very attentive to us. The experience in general was very nice and I highly recommend it to someone going to bansko.

This tour is an unique and interesting way to see more of Bulgaria. We loved all the activities and the transport is comfortable. Our host, Bobby, is a wealth of knowledge and brings a fun element to the group. I would highly recommend this tour!

Absolutely breathtaking views, great guide and small group. The hike at the 7 Rila Lakes was HARD but so worth it. I also really enjoyed the monastery! If you're going to do one excursion while in Bulgaria, do this one.

Smoothly run day trip with enough time alloted for a hike to the highest peak of the Rila Lakes.
