Self guided tours are an excellent way to soak up the scenery and the social, cultural, natural environments experienced along the way - at your own pace. While the majority of the hiking routes were clearly marked and very easy to follow, one or two needed either some way markers better positioned on the trail or better indications given on the guide notes provided. A small glitch in an otherwise extremely well designed hiking holiday. Drivers were always on time to collect our luggage and drop it to the next night stop. All were very polite, friendly, great ambassadors for Bulgaria! Rumen our driver from Sofia to Devin and from Kosovo back to Sofia (via Plovdiv), Carlo who collected us from the Miraculous Bridges and drove us to Kosovo, George our driver in Sofia, and of course our wonderful guesthouse hosts - Rumen and Zakarena in Lyaskovo and Svetlana in Kosovo village: simply superb hospitality!!
I was a last minute addition to an already organised group and with only a week's notice, Ivailo (Traventuria manager) was able to make all my arrangements - some of which fell outside the usual tour package - without a hiccup.
Very easy online payment, all boxes ticked, nothing left to chance. A very sharp operation - can whole-heartedly recommend Traventuria and will be happy to have them arrange my next trip to Bulgaria.
