          Great time in Rodopi mountain with Top guides
          I spent a wonderful day in Rodopi mountain. The trail was amazing, the route was carefully and thoughtfully planned, we saw gorgeous spring flowers and nature! The views from the mountain peak we climbed were breathtaking. This is not my first experience with mountain guides but is the best one so far! I do recommend and I am already looking forward to my next adventure with these great guys!!!

          Excellent and very flexible guiding, perfect organization
          Perfect organization, it was a great pleasure. We engaged Dimiter already in 2019. We reached two summits. Cherny Vrah: We got in a terrible Snow storm in May 2019.

          Top guides newest adventure, thoroughly worth it!
          This was an amazing adventure in the non- touristy, unexplored North- West mountainous region in the area of Belogradchik. Stunning views, acacia and lilac trees in full blossom l, amazing rocks, revealing the beauty of this wild region. We could hear the deer and the birds, see the foot print of foxes and enjoy the spring flowers . I hike I would thoroughly recommend to all the wild nature lovers, photographers and rate view connoisseurs

          One day in Rila - Kupenite
          Top Guides are really one of the best if not the best guides I have been hiking with. What differs them from most of the other guides is the details and knowledge they can provide when it comes to new hiking surfaces. You always feel safe with them and they are so easy to communicate with. I strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to go to a beautiful and panoramic place, which is "isolated" from mass invasion of tourists.

          Amazing ski tour guiding across the Bulgarian mountains.
          So good I came back for a second guided ski touring trip in Bulgaria. Guides found those hidden quiet areas with the best conditions available. This together with the cultural immersion and information on historical and current affairs made it a 5* experience.

          A Winter Polezhan Adventure!
          I was part of winter mountain trip to Polezhan in Pirin. The highly professional guide, the friendly group, and the awe-inspiring views all contributed to an unforgettable hike. We were blessed with wonderful weather and unforgettable views. Our guide Mitko helped us whenever we are unaware how to use the equipment or some specificity of the winter environment, he gave us a lot of useful advises as well as information for the surrounding natural landmarks. Five stars without a doubt!

          Sivrichal-Kameniti chal trek 13 Dec. 2023
          I was with Top Guides on the Sivrichal-Kameniti chal trek. It was a memorable adventure. Mitko from Top Guides had once again chosen a wonderful route in which there were difficult and easy sections. Nature gave us everything else - beautiful clear weather, wind, fog and most of all wonderful views and a sunset that will be remembered for a long time. I recommend Top Guides to all my friends, because I know that with them the treks are wonderful.

        I sent 3 teenagers (15-16 y) with Dimiter to discover the Rila Lakes in winter . The organisation was perfect . They came back at the end of the day super- enthusiastic even if the weather was a little foggy and it stayed like a higlight of their week in Bulgaria .

        We are a family with two teenage girls (14-17) and walked 3 days with snowshoes in Rila and Pirin mountains. Dimiter (Mitko) was our guide. Our tour was custom made and we combined it with 3 days of skiing in Bansko. Email communication before the trip was quick and complete. The snowshoeing tour was definitely the highlight of our Bulgarian week, not only for us adults but also for our teenagers. The hikes were very beautiful with superb mountain views, mostly in remote areas so we seemed to be alone in the mountains. Mitko changed the program on the spot due to the very good weather conditions so we coud enjoy an extra viewpoint. Mitko turned out to be very good guide, he loves his country and shares spontaneously his knowledge about the mountains and the Bulgarian way of living. We would definitely recommend a snowshoeing tour with bulguides!

        Demetri went above and beyond to accommodate our wishes for this trip; advising the best route, itinerary and day for conditions.
        The day ran so smoothly, from the moment we were picked up from our apartment until we got dropped back in the evening!
        The scenery is fantastic, and Demetri is a fountain of knowledge about the area.
        100% recommend this trip to anyone staying in Sofia who wants to escape to the tranquility of the mountains!
