    Wonderful experience! I was a little nervous but I quickly got comfortable! I would come back! Anton, the instructor was very knowledgeable, friendly and passionate. He took me on a beautiful route to get to the Glozhine monastry which was very scenic and peaceful. The horses are very well trained and easy to ride. If you are thinking of doing this experience, book it now! 10 out 10.

    Everything about this trip was great! The Rila national park is outstanding and the transfer was a wise choice as well! Our driver (Philip) was right on time, very informative and willing to answer every question and provide us with tips about the tour and also gave us a map to use which was really helpful. The van was confortable with A/C and the drive was pleasant. Had a great time and i totally recommend it to everyone! Thank you Philip!

    Our trip was full of spectacularly stunning views and our amazing guide, Ves, pumped us with endless knowledge the whole trip. Incredible experience. We look forward to doing more tours with Ves and Campfire.

    Bobby was our tour guide for a Private shuttle from Sofia, the trip included the 7 Rila Lakes and the Rila Monastery.

    Bobby was an excellent tour guide, provided us with excellent maps to use on the hike, was very accommodating and gave us lots of information about the lakes, monastery and Bulgaria.

    Was a thoroughly enjoyable trip and would highly recommend! Much easier than organising to use local transport to visit both these places!

    I highly recommend this tour. I was taken around by Ventsislav who was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the best that Bulgaria has to offer. The Nemetsa Cave was genuinely unlike anything that I have seen before and something that needs to be seen in person to appreciate it.

    I told Ventsislav that I was shocked that there are so few reviews (though all very high) for this trip and his response tells you all you need to know: he just wants the attendees to have the best time and if they want to leave a review (though he doesn't ask for them and didn't request one from me or the other attendee), all the better. I am very happy to do so and encourage you to avail yourself of the opportunity to take this tour, particularly given Ventsislav choosing to run very small tours regardless of the weather, so the experience is smooth.

    Great and experienced guide. Fantastic experience and highly recommend for tourists staying in Sofia. The tour included enough breaks to make it a relaxed walk.

    Pretty impressive. Not all that easy to reach, unless you have car, or book a tour from Vidin, but looks like the photos. I am 69, and while it not entirely easy for me to reach the top level, neither was it too difficult, and the view was worth it.

    I really enjoyed my time at Fun sports, the place is amazing and the staff are very nice. We did many activities such as karting, shouting, ATV... and all of them are well organized.

    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!

    A stunning adventures.
    Place like that remember you how can be beautiful the nature and life.
    The seven lakes were frozen and the trip to reach each of them was like the polar walking.
    Great mountains and funny moments with our Guide, Vess who saved us, and our caps, a lot of times.
    IYou have to try to resist to the weather.
    We are pleasured to have decided to visit Rila.

    The guide was very friendly and really explained us each site into details. The group was small (7 people) so it felt great. The tour includes a lot of driving so if you have the time, I would recommend to book tours for the monastery and for the lakes on separate days. If you are more in a rush, this is clearly manageable though.
