We had a marvelous time on this tour with Lachezar Gudev as our guide. He guided us through a personal route on the mountain right to Kemendall viewpoint in witch he took our sense for adventure, our fysical condition and our disabilities into account. This way he made the road to the viewpoint at least even interesting as the viewpoint itself, which is really something you can not miss when you visit Sofia. We also learned much about Bulgarian daily life and the bulgarian filmindustry from our guide that also seemed to know a lot about other touristic places in Bulgary. In short we couldn't be in better hands during this trip that was a great succes with many thanks to this wonderfull man. We advise this tour to anyone who wants to discover Sofia and likes to be in the nature as well, as we also would advise you to turn to Lachezar Gudev if you want a good guide or some good tips for a trip in Bulgary

This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The red rocks are breathtaking and so is the fortress. You should also ask for my tour guide, Mariya. She is very warm-hearted and a wonderful person. I enjoyed this place more than the Eifel Tower, the Colosseum, or the Leaning Tower. It’s the most astonishing place in Europe, in my opinion.

I had a wonderful trip with Maria. She was my driver and guide of the trip and was super knowledgeable and shared tons of information about the places and everything Bulgarian. She was friendly and just a great guide. The Monastery was lovely and so picturesque especially having just snowed. The paintings were so vividly colored they seemed like they were painted yesterday.Boyana Church was tiny, but Maria shared great information. We stopped at a nice restaurant to sample the fresh trout. Food was quite good.
