Rila Monastery Private Tour
May 2019 • Friends
Booked a private tour with V Travel , tour guide was excellent very friendly &’very informative. The tour was a hike to Stob pyramids & Rila Monastery , both throughly enjoyable. I arrived in Bulgaria with zero knowledge about its history & left with enough to write a short thesis.
Thank you to the driver.
