Excellent opportunity to explore beyond Sofia for the day. A mini hike to the Stob Pyramids in a very tranquil setting and then on to the stunning Rila Monastery. Great lunch by the river. My guide, Orlin, was top notch: thoroughly knowledgeable about the places we visited, excellent English, very engaging. Arranged a detour to visit a winery so I could learn more about local wines and pick up a bottle or two. Punctual, very comfortable vehicle. Entirely recommended!
