This was our first guided hiking tour (Hiking Trek in the Pirin and Rila Mountains) and first experience of Traventuria. What can I say? They have set the bar very high! It was wonderful!
The guide (Alex) was warm and welcoming right from the very beginning. The guide was very organised, informing us of the plan everyday, so we were aware of what to expect. He went above and beyond what we expected as a guide, telling us all about Bulgarian history & culture as he guided us up mountains and by lakes.
Alex even guided us in the evening taking us to traditional Bulgarian restaurants, where people played traditional folk music and taking us to a village where two locals opened up a room in their house and served us delicious food.
It was an action packed week! I really felt that I got to know the country well, taking in not only one but two national parks in 8 days. I loved the trip and I loved Bulgaria!!!! Keep up the good work!!!
