Very well organized and a lovely tour in the mountains and to the villages. An extra plus that transfer from and to the airport was included.

We did the 8-day trek through the Rhodope mountains (5 days hiking) with Traventuria, and it was a wonderful experience. They were punctual and organized, and the guest houses and hosts they have selected are absolutely lovely. Most of the trails were well-marked, though some improvements could be made such as providing maps and instructions on waterproof paper and providing GPS coordinates for key points along the route. One day the trail was barely marked, but this could be easily fixed by updating the route. The last day with the drive back to Sofia was the perfect close to the trip. Our driver for the day, Nick, was very friendly and knowledgable and was able to answer so many of the questions we had from our trip that we were unable to get answers to in the mostly Bulgarian-speaking areas.

We had an excellent day with this company and especially with our guide, Martin. He was right on time to pick us up, gave us really useful information throughout the trip and was easy to talk to. What was most useful was his hiking experience. We got some bad weather near the end of the hike and Martin helped us to decide to turn around before it got worse, and it did; it started pouring and even hailing at one point.

I had a day trip to Plovdiv town and Bachkovo monastery. The trip was throughout the whole day. Our tour guide, Martin did a really good job and this is much appreciated. On this trip I realised how important the tour guide is; everything else is just information that you can find on your own, but he guide can make the difference.

Dear Lina,
Thank you for the expressed thoughts and review of your experiences with Martin. We are all the time trying to improve our guides presentation skills, but definitely Martin is one of the best students and contributor. As Plovdiv is preparing for the honour to be a Cultural capital of Europe in 2019 there are so many interesting changes that are happening there all the time. I'm sure the city will become one of the most adored tourist sites. Consider yourself invited in Plovdiv in 2019 to see the city being " fully face-lifted" and more charming than ever. To all the foreigners visiting Bulgaria I would like to say - "Do not miss to visit Plovdiv with or without a guide".
