I am just back from an 8 days snow-shoeing trip of Traventuria, with Mitko (Dimiter) as the group guide. GREAT adventure! Amazing views from snow covered high altitude forests and mountain peaks, interesting country and wellcoming people to discover, tasty and diverse local food. All aspects of the trip were excellently taken care by Traventuria, from the nice hotels, the restaurants for dinners, the rented equipment and the itinery. But above all, the personsl touch and responsibility of Mitko our guide is what gave it a 5 stars experience- very informative about Bulgaria in general and the areas we visited speciffically, highly responsible for the group and while driving, and with a very friendly and patient attitude at all times. Ofcourse we all had few Raqyias (local drink) together, and even dancing together dressed in traditional clothing in a beautiful restaurant in a village near Bansko.
Highly recommended.
Enjoy!

Three days ago I took the full-day tour to the Boyana Church and Rila Monastery with Todor, our wonderful guide, and three other travelers. Both sights were extraordinary, and Todor was extremely knowledgeable about every facet of both locations. He very patiently answered numerous questions, even on many topics having nothing to do with the church or monastery, so we learned a great deal about Bulgaria in general. He is easy-going, an excellent driver, and tailored the day to the needs of our small group. I had a delightful time!

Dear Bella,
We highly appreciate your review. Our tour to Rila Monastery and Boyana Church is always more than just exploring two of the most famous Bulgarian UNESCO sites. The guides always include interesting facts about the way Bulgarians live nowadays and intriguing historical facts. Todor is also grateful for your review and he is sending your his greetings.
Kind regards,
Svetoslav

Having booked a transfer from Sofia airport to Bansko in Jan 2019 I would highly recommend them! The driver was on time, waited for our delayed flight, the car had a trailer for luggage and skis.

Dear Alena,
Thank you for taking the time to review our transportation services. We are monitoring all the time the flights and all of our vehicles are with ample luggage compartment. During the winter we always have roof racks or trailers attached to them so we can have plenty of space for the ski/snowboard gear.
Best wishes from our team!

The tour was great. My guide (I say my, because I was the only one on the tour that day) was fantastic. He was knowledgeable about both cities and was able to show me some of the most fantastic views.

Dear Athenas,
Thank you for the kind feedback. This is the first year we are running the tour to Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa during the winter. In this line of thinking your review means a lot to us.

Happy travels and I hope you join us on another day tour from Sofia.
