My partner and I did the peaks and lakes of the Pirin and Rila mountains with Traventuria. It was an incredible experience which was well organised by the company. From the moment I showed interest, Traventuria made every effort possible to help out and book the tour that was right for us. We scored Alex Serafimov as our guide! he was excellent, had incredible local knowledge and was overall a cool guy! The food was great, the transfers seamless and the mountains remarkable! would definitely recommend using Traventuria and asking for Alex!! :)

We only had one day in Sofia and really enjoyed this tour. Guide was very interesting and I thought we learnt quite a bit of history as well. We paid for hotel pickup but pickup location was quite central also.

The trip was well organised, and the guide was knowledgeable and motivated. Pick up was well located - by the Alexander Nevski Cathedral, and the comfortable minibus arrived in good time. Time allowed at the sites was just right for me, and I appreciated the lunch stop at a nice restaurant with delicious trout as recommended by the guide. OK, you can do these places by public transport, but in my experience Bulgarian bus services don't always run at the times a tourist wants!

Did the Rila Seven Lakes hike in late September 2016. It was an excellent experience. We were a smal group, and all the practicalities World out Well. The driver/guide Krassimir was a seasoned mountain guide, the hike was moderate and the views were awesome and breathtaking! Recommended!

An enjoyable and moderately challenging hike on well defined trails. A bit touristy in places, but our guide knew how to take the less crowded paths. Our guide was friendly and considerate of my son (10 years old) who obviously couldn't hike as fast as us. He was able to give us good advice on how much food and water to bring with us. The Rila mountains are beautiful.
