Full day in Rila Monastry and 7 lakes
Aug 2019
It was a great tour.
We were picked up at 9 - just as they said in advance.
We were a very small group so it was very comfortable - 6 people.
The evening before they sent us all important information on Whatsup.
The driver was also the guide. He spoke perfect English and was a great driver.
We started in Rila - where he explained us about the monastery.
Then we had some free time.
Then we went to the 7 lakes.
There we had enough time to hike and to enjoy the beautiful nature.
Then he took us back to Sofia.

Was a beautiful tour with a very nice driver/guide.

Great tours and company!
We booked two days tour The Best of Bulgaria. First day we went to Rila Monastery and 7 Rila Lakes. Both places are beautiful, but scenery of nature around 7 Lakes just breathtaking! It is hiking tour so make sure you ready for it :)
Second day we visited Plovdiv and Bachkovo Monastery. Great day as well!
Really happy with this tours package and highly recommend this company!
