I only had 2 days and wanted to stay overnight in the mountains. Travenuria was very patient and helpful over rounds of email in tailoring something to my wish. I ended up having an amazing time hiking in the mountains and then staying over-night at the Monastery (to be picked up by a different tour to Boyana church the next day). Huge credit goes to my guide Martin. Without him I would not have made it where I wanted to, or would have gotten terribly lost in the fog! Thanks again for a couple fabulous days.

Hello there,
Thank you for the kind words. It was our pleasure organizing a tour a bit off the beaten track. Our team enjoys serving clients, which like to go further then the mass tourists. Our wishes to you are to conquere a lot of peaks in your life and never to stop dreaming of new ones. One of them could be Peak Musala - the highest peak on the Balkans.

We were visiting Sofia and had some time to do a tour, both in the city and outside. We were staying at the excellent Hilton hotel, and they recommended Traventuria. What a good choice that was. They are a reliable, safe, highly experienced, very informative team, and we were delighted with both the tours we took. The first one was with the professional and courteous George. We went to Melnik, then to Blagoevgrad, and then to the Rila Monastery. it was a full day out, but full of interest. The weather in fact was very rainy and cold, but George still made it a perfect day. Personally, Melnik in the heavy rain was not as good as it might be, and Blagoevgrad was a little limited, but Rila was lovely (though the toilets are dire). Be aware though that it's high in the mountains so quite a bit colder than you might expect, and except for a few hours either side of midday is in shadow as the sun sinks behind the surrounding mountains. The next day my wife did a walking city tour with Bilyana, a most educated, charming and informative female guide. (My wife had asked for a female as it was a one-to-one tour.) My wife came back buzzing with all she'd seen and was full of praise and admiration for Bilyana. Overall then, a first-rate company with great staff. I would have no hesitation in recommending Traventuria to anyone.

Had Martin as our tour group and the group size was 6. Perfect size that allow us to talk and not be rushed though the tour. I would highly recommend this group to my friends

Used this company to do the trip to the Monastery. Booked online at home before our holiday. An excellent well organised tour. Good value for money. Special thanks to Martin our guide who did an excellent job.

Martin from Traventuria was our tour guide during our holiday to Bulgaria. He was amiable, caring, attentive and knowledgeable about the places we visited. He was very flexible with our needs and patient. He was an excellent guide and enriched our trip immensely. He showed us places we would normally have known about.

At the onset of the tour we had no idea of the country, its history, cuisine and Bulgarian people. Towards the end we had visited some fantastic places with varied and beautiful scenery, tasted an excellent array of wholesome food, absorbed the rich culture and history too. Thank you, Traventuria, for your excellent schedule and itinerary, we have indeed had a super holiday in such a beautiful country that is Bulgaria.
