Did the one week 'riddles of the Rila mountains' self-guided tour in August '17. We were both very happy with the service Traventuria provided. The drivers picking us up and dropping us off were always on time and very friendly. The route descriptions and maps were very clear, also providing us with alternatives on days when we were tired and the hikes themselves were very nice. They were also pretty flexible with the schedule: we cancelled our first hike just 2 hours in advance because of bad weather, switched two days around because of the same and were even able to ask the driver during a hike to pick us up an hour later.
We are used to hiking holidays in which we do all the research and planning ourselves and I do think that it would be possible to do this trip unorganized if you hire a car, but this was just so much easier. No worrying about hotels, transfers, traffic, the best routes, etc. All we had to do was show up and hike, which was exactly what we wanted. If I could do this holiday again, there's some small things I'd change about the routes but I'd talk it over with someone who knows the area first: not all the hiking routes in my GPS actually existed.
