On a recent visit to Sofia, I used this Company for both airport transfers and also a full day trip to Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa. All went like clockwork and the very friendly and knowledgeable driver/guide George made sure that all participants enjoyed the day trip. Good price and value and I would not hesitate to use again when in Bulgaria.

We travelled as a private group of 6, doing various day mountain walks. We had a guide called Maya, who was very knowledgeable, accommodating and helpful.

This was a very good trip plan, the standard of the food and accommodation was very good.

I can recommend Traventuria for walking trips in Bulgaria. They are significantly cheaper than using the more well known UK type companies who arrange such trips.

The mountains of Bulgaria are very good and on a par to other well known locations.

The beer is also very cheap.

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.

We took the tour to Boyana church and Rila Monastery with Martin and had a wonderful time, seeing two World Heritage Listed jewels and learning tons about Bulgarian culture and history. The frescoes at the Boyana church, our first stop, evoked the Orthodox world of the 10th and 13th centuries when pictures were essential in telling the story of Christ and St. Nicholas. The Rila Monastery nestled in the mountains was breathtakingly impressive, beautifully restored with a background of green wooded mountains. At the center of the monastery that still houses monks is a church resplendent in its pictorial richness. After the visit we ate at a local restaurant that featured grilled trout fresh from the nearby streams. A more pleasant outing from Sofia cannot be imagined.

My first trek of its kind in Europe and I had the time of my life for the whole 6 days. Kamen our guide was great! His friendly disposition and knowledge of his country along with his stamina made each day very enjoyable and challenging. The hotels we stayed at were all really nice and the food delicious! The trip was so very well organised and I can only recommend Traventuria highly. It is my pleasure to write this review - Bulgaria is one very beautiful country for sure! Thank you Ivailo and all at Traventuria.
