A long day but worth it. The Rila lakes were just beautiful and we had a friendly tour guide. It was well organised.

If you wish to travel to the Bulgarian Rila and Pirin mountains for a week of hiking, do not hesitate : trust Traventuria. They have the perfect skills to organise and provide a perfect holiday. I was particularly happy with the high quality of the mountain guide, her skills to adapt herself to a somewhat heterogeneous group and her constant good mood; but also with the choice of restaurants and hotels. I cannot complain about a single thing and am contemplating going back next year.

One day visit to Rila Monastery it's a must if you come to Bulgaria.
Second day trip to Plovdiv (not impress by the place) and has visited a wonderful Thracian tomb in Kazaniak.

Dear Sir,
I would like to express my gratitude to the fact that you shared your experience with the Tripadvisor society. It is nice, motivating and pleasant to read a good review of a member of our team.

I would like to point out that our best selling tour to Rila Monastery and Boyana runs most of the time with small groups (4-7 persons) making it virtually semi-private. In this way the guide can always pay individual attention to every traveller.

Lunch is not included in our tour package price and is optional, but our team believes it is an important addition to the overall tour expience. The restaurants around the Monastery offer organic yogurt with honey (The Monastery has its own bee hives and buffalo farm) and grilled fresh troat.

I hope you will have an opportunity to visit Bulgaria again and further explore its nature and culture.
Enjoy life and keep on travelling.

we visited Paris and Madeira for about 10 days. Both directions were very nice and so different. We were 3 days in Paris and managed to see roughly half of the city attractions.
It was very easy to use the traffic arranged transport and reach each place you want.
Madeira was so green and exotic. There are good attractions which the tourists should see i.e. dolphin and whales watching. It is good to have "rent a car". Thanks a lot of the travel agency for the trip organization.
