A great day-trip! Maria, our guide, took great care of us. On the way to Belogradchik, she talked about the fortress and its history but also about Bulgarian culture. Along the way, she stopped and got us a nice treat of fresh raspberries from a local person selling by the road. Belogradchik Fortress is not only impressive but unique. Red rocky fingers of iron-ladden rock project upwards from the top of a hill where Romans began the fortress. Around that, are the remains from when it was expanded in medieval times. Then finally it is framed by stone walls erected during the Ottoman occupation. The view from the summit was breathtaking. On the way back, we stopped for a delightful lunch at a cafe in Montana. In summary, it was a fantastic trip. Maria was professional, knowledgeable and just good fun. I greatly recommend the tour, Maria, Zelanos and Get Your Guide.
The activity and place is amazing… but what made it worth it was Maria!!! She is so kind and smart. She walked and helped our 4 year old son, while I held a baby, and my husband helped his mom. She was so attentive to our needs. And then we ate at the most delicious place for lunch. It truly was the best start to our trip in Bulgaria! We wished we could take Maria with us for the rest of the time!
Even though Belogradchik Rocks are located a little far from Sofia it’s ABSOLUTELY worth going there. Wow what a scenery, what a landscape and fantastic views, This is really a special place. The ride itself passes through a beautiful region of Bulgaria. Friendly guide and driver who both spoke perfect english, comfortable minibus. Thank you, see you next time in Sofia for another tour :-)
We had the most amazing time. This tour is a must! The rocks are so beautiful. You don't have to be a good hiker to do it. The car ride is worth it. And after seeing the castle they bring you to an hidden space with a beautiful view. I reconment this so much. Our tour guide was really chill and had so many good stories/info!
Very amiable guide and safe driver, excellent experience and very informative and interesting historical facts about the Belogradchik fortress/rock formation and the Venica caves
