From our first contact with Ivailo in Dec 2014 to our drop off on 5th September everything about the organisation of this walking trip was perfect. Prompt responses to email queries etc left us confident that we were in good hands.Our collection by Alex, (what a superb guide) was on time,and the trip to Bansko was full of infomation, and left us fully prepared for the journeys ahead.There were 4 of us including Alex. 6 days walking in the wonderful Pirin and Rila mountains, was really amazing.These mountains have to be seen to be believed. Our evening meals in local restaraunts and houses showed us all that is good with Bugarian cuisine and culture. We will be returning. Thanks to Ivailo and Traventuria for organising this trip, and a special thanks to Alex our guide and Charley our travelling companion for making this adventure so enjoyable. John & Colette

From our first contact to the final drop off at our hotel in Sofia we were impressed by the organisation of this self guided tour. Routes were well thought out and the notes and maps clear - inevitably, in an area of active forestry, there were a couple of updates but we never had any concerns following the routes. The hotels / guest houses were all hospitable and the food plentiful with enormous breakfasts! We had great fun communicating with our hosts via Google translate with some wonderful mistranslations on both sides!
The Rhodope mountains are glorious for walking and the tour gives a fascinating insight into the contrast between village life and the rapidly developing urban life of Sofia and the other big towns.
Definitely one to book sooner rather than later!

We spent the day with Martin travelling to Plovdiv for very personalized tour of this historic ancient city. Martin had a great knowledge of the town and shared it with a sense of humor and respect for the heritage. We liked the respect he showed for the religious heritage at the monastery. Thanks Martin for sharing part of your country with us. Best of luck in your future endeavours j&M Canada

It was very well organized.
Traventuria picked us up at the airport
The guide was nice but tight. It was hard to convince her to change the schedule.
But she took us to wonderful places: mountains, lakes...
