Last day of our small trip to Sofia and we decided to go and see the Rila mountains. We assembled at 7 in the morning near the Cathedral and we met our guide and 4 other hikers there. After one and a half hour we arrived at the Rila mountains and went up by chair lift.

We walked for an hour or two to arrive at the 5th lake and there the guide gave us the choice of going to the 7th lake or stay behind. We were glad that we went up because the view was stunning.

Afterwards we went via another route down the hill again and arrived at the chair lift at 16:30.

Our guide was wonderful. When we wanted to stop to take a picture or a small break, he patiently waited for us. His English was fluent and he explained a lot about the nature and the lakes. He was very passionate and while we don't like guided tours that much, we really enjoyed this one because of the freedom we got. Was easily worth the €49 euros we paid per person!

Thanks for the amazing day!

It was a good choice to book the trip to Rila monastery and Bojana church. Booking was comfortable and questions in advance were answered immediately. Our guide Vasco did a great job. He give us a lot of tips and informed us about history, nature, live and economics in Bulgaria. He had a broad knowledge about our places of interest. In my opinion an audio guide is not necessary.

From start to finish, this operation ran very smoothly.

Our guide was excellent, time to sleep both ways on an air-conditioned coach and all of the information was pertinent.

A relatively long day was well prepared and thoroughly enjoyed.

Well done !

I travelled with my friend through Bulgaria and Greece for 8 days, and one of the mandatory stops was to Rila and Boyana. We decided to take the day tour with Traventuria due to the good quality-price relationship and the good reviews. In fact, everything was better than expected: our guide was very helpful, kind and keen to explaining everything, and included some extra info about the country and life of the country. I recommend 100% because it is better than travelling alone and very well organized.

We made one-day trip to Boyana church and Rila monastery during our 4-nights stay in Sofia. Everything was great, the trip is perfectli organized, I can recommend. Among others, it is not easy to get there there by public means, so this trip is very comfortable way to visit these great attractions.
