We took the shuttle to Rila Monastery and Boyana church yesterday and were very pleased with our trip. Even though we had not booked the full tour, our driver, Rusi, was extremely informative and offered to guide us through both the monastery museum and the church. He is very knowledgeable, a great driver, and a charming host. We did not feel at all rushed and arrived back at our hotel after a great day, feeling much more informed about this lovely country. Sadly, our stay in Bulgaria will be a brief one this time so we are very glad for this excellent glimpse into Bulgarian history and culture. If you only have two days in Sofia, we recommend that you spend one of them on this day trip to Rila Monastery and the Boyana church.
