The first tour we took was Plovdiv+Bachkovo and Georgi Valiavicharski was our guide. The trip by itself is amazing and highly recommendable but Georgi is just simply a hell of a guide he knows a lot of history and he likes to share his knowledge and experience, he is always prompt to help about anything related to the tour and beyond, he never pressure us and he was always kind. Plovdiv as the advertising in the traventuria website is a MUST and is not enough to see photos or videos of the place, you absolutely have to be there to fully enjoy it. Bachkovo monastery is also impressive but it is going a reconstruction process (July 2016).

The second tour was Boyana+Rila. The driver and guide did a fine job but our expectations after the last tour were I am afraid too high. The Boyana church is nice but in my opinion 10 Lev per person just for 10 min inside is just unfair. Now the Rila monastery is also a MUST see and perhaps is better to combine the visit to Rila with another place apart of Boyana church.

We've booked a tout to Rila Monastery via our hotel. We were told to wait at 09:00 in front of Alexander Nievski cathedral. We were there on time and nobody came to take us although we've circlled the cathedral a few times.
We took the same tour 2 days later and they were where they should have been. Our guide, a lady named Constanza who had a lot of knowledge and excellent English. She had shown us all over and explained everything of value to us. Together with the driver Rozen the were an excelent team! We enjoyed this tour very much!

Dear Elisha,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. It is a pity that you have missed our minibus at first. Our pick-up point has always been in front of La Cattedrale restaurant, which is on the back of Al. Nevski Cathedral (on the south-east corner of the square). It is clearly marked on our leaflet, which you probably had not been given. I presume that you have not been informed correctly by the receptionist through which you have booked the tour. From your review I judge that you are very positive person and the caused inconvenience has not ruined your overall experience.

Thank you very much for your kind words and for sharing your experience with Konstantsa on your Rila Monastery and Boyana Church tour. We make quite demanding interviews for our guides, to ensure they are the best and to make sure that our customers get the highest quality tours. Konstantsa is brilliant and is a real expert at guiding new explorers through Bulgaria's beautiful and stunning sites.

Happy travels!

My husband and I really enjoyed our trip. Traventuria did a fantastic job selecting the hikes and the accomodations. The hiking directions and maps were very good, easy to follow.
The accomodations were comfortable. Large, clean rooms, lots of hot water for showers.
The breakfasts were good, with large portions, and varied.
The transfers to and from the trailheads were right on time. Overall a hassle free, well executed itinerary.

Very excellent organisation with a big 9/10. We were lucky to have a lovely guide called Annie.....a.very dynamic young lady with a great big smile. It was also a very nice tour we made in the Rila and Pirin mountains with good accomodations in family hotels. A great experience for us was the culture part of the tour. Super en recommanded.......our felicitations

Absolutely amazing! We were impressed by the mountains and lakes as a site by itself, but our extremely competent and kind guide made the whole trip memorable and recommendable. Martin (guide) did a great job giving us information and knowledge of the sites, and because one in the group had a bad foot, he showed patience and had nothing against our later arrival back to Sofia. He gave us all the time we needed taking photos and helped us pointing out great spots for doing so background-wise. He is a guide without comparison, he is doing a terrific job, and made our day trip one of the best days on our entire interrail trip. Please, give our best regards to him :-)
