I went on the Boyana Church and Rila Monastery tour with George. Since the group was too big, we had to be split into two tours and three of us went with George. I am so glad I got to go with him because we got a personalized experience. He was a wonderful guide, extremely knowledgeable, funny, answered all of our questions about Bulgaria, and even stayed with me inside Rila Monastery acting as my own private tour guide while the others of our group went off on their own. I totally recommend this trip through Traventuria. You get great guides, beautiful scenery, and a day to remember.

Traventuria did a great job of organizing a well balanced and sufficiently challenging week of hiking in the Pirin and Rila mountains. Lyuben, our guide was excellent, keeping our group of eleven on track and together both while hiking and in the evenings. Accommodation was basic but comfortable and the meals provided filling and enjoyable, especially when experiencing some of the local specialities. Spectacular mountains, beautiful lakes and a huge variety of alpine flowers made this a hiking trip to remember.

We were able to book last minute. Good communication from the company via email...though we missed the last one which crucially contained the pick up time...all is well that ends well though. We had a fantastic day with a leisurely hike up to the Lakes with our guide Martin who was a fount of knowledge. Would thoroughly recommend.

Earlier in the week we did the Rila Lakes and Monastery tour. Our guide for the day, Martin was fantastic! He was very friendly and helpful throughout the trip! Couldn't rate him highly enough! The walk around the Rila Lakes was amazing!! We were blown away by the beautiful Bulgarian scenery! The monastery was also a very unique and interesting place to visit. Would totally recommend this tour. It is a great day out if you want to get out of the city and see some amazing countryside :)
