Our experience with Traventuria and our guide Kiril was fantastic. We happened to arrive at the Rila Lakes on incredibly busy day, but our guide still found us a slice of peace and serenity in the hills. Kiril knew a huge amount about the lakes and the surrounding area. Having Kiril with us at Rila Monastery was invaluable.
In addition to topics directly related to the tour, we talked at length at just about any topic that popped up, whether on the walk or in the car. I learned much about Bulgarian culture, politics, and national character.
There is no doubt that these guys are excellent advocates for Sofia, Bulgaria, and the environment. If you only have a short window, this is a good way to get to know Bulgaria better--and the perfect way to see the monastery and another worthwhile activity in the same day.
