I want to thank you for the very professional way in which your company organised the trip for Mike and I. Everything was clear before we left the UK, the materials for our self-guided days were very helpful and we were entirely satisfied with the accommodation in Govardartsi and Bansko. We were met on time by your representative when we arrived and our tour guide for the week could not have been in any way more helpful or more charming than she was. Despite the disappointing weather, we enjoyed our visit to Bulgaria. Both Mike and I would like to return one day to climb Vihren and Maliovitsa.

With best regards

Dr Alan Beaton

When we started to plan a long and complicated trip to 10 countries over 10 weeks, Traventuria provided very helpful advice about the best way to travel then made the flight bookings for the most economical connections. They also handled arrangements for the Inca Trail in Peru as well as an excursion to Tibet. When we experienced difficulties getting permission to travel to Tibet, Traventuria rearranged flights accordingly. The tour company they selected for the Inca Trail was first class so that the adventure was very memorable. I would highly recommend Traventuria for their efficient service and considerable knowledge of trvavel on and off the beaten track

Perfect organization - which enabled us to do the hike in front of most of the others, no queues... Plus the background stories were really a great bonus. I got an impression of the local landscape and learnt something about Bulgaria. To have an educated, enthusiastic guide, with a deep knowledge of history and so being able to give an answer to all our questions is priceless - everything else you can buy using your credit card...
Safe back home at our appartment in the evening - exactly at the time calculated :)

A long day, but really worth the effort and it will need some effort :-)
Ivailo our guide, collected us from our hotel in Sofia, and drove us to the gondalla lift.
Thats where the easy part finished, and the walking began.
Ivailo walked at our pace, stopping when needed, and I needed to stop regularly.
The views were stunning, from the moment you start walking to the moment you get to the top.
Just point a for the ladies, go to the toilet before you start, the one toilet on the whole hike, is a little basic squat one!
There are stop off points for food its cheap and simple but tasty.

I have just come back from a walking holiday in Bulgaria. With Traventuria I have made the self-guided Tour in the Rhodope Mountains called "In The Steps Of Orpheus". It was a wonderful experience walking in this Pomak region in the south-east of Bulgaria. The organization by Traventuria was really impeccable! The walks were nice, the documentation very good, the hotels very well chosen and the assistance of Simona was excellent and very professional.
