This trip with Daffy was excellent. There were 13 people, a nice size group. Is a long day but well worth it. Daffy’s knowledgeable in many areas and her English is impeccable...not only impeccable but easy to understand, sometimes a problem on international tours

We don't take many tours, but this one made sense. We had a small group in a nice van. The time spent at each site was just right. Guide and driver were both very professional.

We were here for a day tour to Rila monastery and Boyana church. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable but we got the back seats unluckily in the mini van and couldn’t hear most of his commentary. The tour itself was very well organized but you’d enjoy most sitting on the front seat as you would be able to listen every word. Wish they had microphones so that the guide was audible to guests in the back seats. Probably traventuria should look into this. Boyana church exceeded all my expectations with amazing frescos and Rila monastery was great of course! Definitely worth a day trip if you are in Sofia.

This is a great tour as we were only about fifteen in the group so a minibus was used instead. There was ample time to experience both sites, especially the Rila Monastry (it's huge) with time enough for a sit-down lunch and the museum. Just a minor comment, it seems that the pick-up location is different from what was indicated on the map sent upon booking. Nevertheless a quick call cleared that up.

Very well organised trip and fantastic value for money. Definitely worth the day trip. Our tour guide was Lubo who took very good care of us. He is a history graduate and very knowledgable about the art and history of the Balkans. I don’t normally go for tours but his enthusiasm made it well worth it!

We took a daily tour to Rila Monastery and Boyana Church last Sunday (28 October). Our guide, Lubo, was on time to collect us from the hotel and he gave extra information about the suburbs of Sofia during our trip. Since the Balkan mountains have wonderful colours in the autumn, before arriving the monastery he stopped the car and chose a very convenient corner to take the photos of those mountains and forests. He is a highly motivated professional guide and we truly enjoyed wandering Rila monastery, its murals, the interior, and its courtyard with him. He also helped us about the lunch and gave all the details about three restaurants nearby the monastery.
All respect for Lubo who did a great job as a genuine excellent tour guide. Thanks a lot again and I strongly recommend Rila Monastery and Boyana Church trip to those who seek a well-organised tour to those UNESCO-listed Bulgarian gems!

We did the Rila monastery day tour. It was great: good organized and the guide was nice and professional. The quality-price relathionship is ok (except for the bit expensive extra audio guide, that my partner booked). I found the time at the monastery too short. We had no time for visiting both museums, unfortunately. But this is still a very good uncomplicated way of visiting the monastery

We arrived in Sofia a few days before the start of a group tour of Bulgaria, Serbia and Romania. The group tour offered a trip to Rila Monastery as an added option. However, arriving early, we checked into tours on our own and found Traventuria offered a better price and they also stopped at Boyana Church. The Boyana Church, while small is a gem.The tour was well organized and the pick up and drop off was very convenient, next to Nevski Cathedral. Booking is easy on line.
