Our trip to the Rila and Pirin mountains followed by a few days in Sofia was very well organised. The people at Traventuria were very helpful and efficient when we were planning our trip. The guide Mitko was excellent both as our minibus driver and our mountain guide. The weather was very poor at the beginning of the week so he re-scheduled the days to make sure we got al the walking in on the better days. Mike also took excellent care of everyone in the group whether they were fast or slow walkers. The mountains and lakes are stunning and a must for anyone who enjoys mountain walking and who wants to look further afield than the Alps. The hotel accommodation and the restaurants used for our evening meals were all good quality and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. Traventuria also booked us a good quality hotel in the city centre for our stay in Sofia after the mountain trip. The price of the whole vacation was very good value. Highly recommended.

This was a great 1 day tour. The coach was comfortable and the day very well organised. The guide was brilliant- he gave us some very clear and interesting information both on the journey and at the places we visited. He also directed us to places to eat at the monastery and what we could do after the tour. We had just the right amount of time at each place and to finish off some info on the buildings as we returned to Sofia. We felt. Wry safe with our driver too. Very easy to book online with a quick response. Their website is very clear and the day was exactly as they had said. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you especially to our guide who shared his great knowledge of the area and events so clearly.

We went to Boyana Church and Rila Monestery . IT was one of the best experiences. I booked it just one day before and went next day for trip. It was 7 hours trip altogether and guys are very punctual about time. Lunch may be little difficult at Rila Monestory so better carry something to eat.

This trip was great. Mato was a really informative guy who was passionate about Bulgaria and history. He had great english and had no problems explaining very complex concepts and answers to questions of any genre.

The hike was nice but it was the wrong season to go as there was no water at this time of year. If you are going around Spring-ish time I would recommend this walk. It's a couple of hours of walking and the start is quite a bit of constant up hill but we stopped when we needed to and had no trouble. Definitely not a typically touristy thing to do as well, which was good.

The cave was interesting too and Mato translated everything from the guide for us which made it easy.

Thanks to the logistical organization by Traventuria, we were able to do day hikes in the Rhodope, Pirin, and Rila Mountains. Drivers were always prompt and skilled. The Traventuria office was always available for telephone support. With the exception of Bansko, hotel bookings were comfortable. In Bansko, where many hotels are closed for the off season, book upscale to something like the Grand Hotel Bansko. Traventuria's prices are fair, and The Grand Balkans Circle includes the opportunity to experience village life in Southern Bulgaria.
