Loved it. Martin our guide was very informative and helpful.

The weather was fantastic. Bus was comfortable and even had wifi! We set off with Martin explaining very clearly what we would be doing, sharing his knowledge of the rich history Bulgaria offers. Fascinating. The Boyana Church - quaintly significant and certainly worth a look as the frescoes are over a thousand years old but 2 hours later nothing prepares you for the wonders and splendours of Rila Monastery. Fabulous. Highly recommended and by the way...Martin was kind enough to buy as all “Maritsa” - Bulgarian pastry (fried dough with a sprinkle of icing sugar) - delicious and I’ve been looking everywhere for it since! Thank you.

Definitely recommend this as a day-trip, the churches are a must-see!

This tour was very well organised from the start. We started off at the Boyana Church which is really interesting - you only stay inside for 10 mins at a time as per the church rules, so it was a whistle-stop tour, but our guide did a great job explaining the history. We were then taken to the Rila Monastery, which is absolutely breathtaking. It's very unusual in its decoration. Sadly we were unable to climb the defence tower, but this was still a highlight of our trip to Sofia.

Spectacular hike with professional, insightful guide

This hike was a highlight of my trip to Bulgaria. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous. Trails were in good shape - pretty crowded up top. Our guide Petar was knowledgable, fun and professional. One thing to note is that there was an opportunity to fill water bottles on the trail - I would have brought fewer bottles if I had known. Overall a great excursion!

A quick and easy way to see Plovdiv and Asen's Fortress in a day

Our guide, Michael, and our driver were great company. They were very friendly and our pick-up and drop-off were punctual and convenient. Our guide was very informative and helpful, recommended various ways to spend a few hours in Plovdiv, and gave us the freedom to explore on our own. Great to have had the opportunity to see Asen's Fortress to.

The knowledge of the guide makes the difference

The Rila Monaster and Bojiana Church are beautiful, incredible afrescos, but I thought that 4 hr driving could be too much, but thanks to Cristo our guide...it couldn't be a better experience. He has a big knowledge of everything, professional and Joking at the same time.
