I booked the trip very late. Just around 17.00 a´clock the day before departure — but it worked !! The Guide, Nicola did a great job. He was very generous with his personal enthusiasm and energy giving us a great experience. He did know a lot, but had also many interesting, (maybe not totally proven) theories and speculations. Bot he did know all the exact trip facts. He also gave/put the facts into a greater view of Bulgarian History. (He was clear what "facts" was not totally "academic" proven) + small "extraordinary facts (or speculations) making the guidance very lively — He "read us" very well — we also like to see the history the same way =perfect for us Summarizing Booked with very short notice we got at very good customized trip.
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.
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!
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.
Excellent service. Very punctual. The trekking is intense in some parts. In our case we managed to do all the trails. But just on time. Follow all the indications from the company because it is very accurate. You need to have allá that is suggested.
