We booked the Safari via email with Kate before leaving the UK and planned the day to coincide with our younger daughter's 16th birthday. Kate collected us from our hotel in Sunny Beach and was very chatty and informative about Bulgaria during our journey to the river.
Three of us were novices with kayaks but Kate and Ian were very patient and helpful. Our teenage daughters were confident almost immediately and enjoyed paddling along the river at their own pace. I took a bit longer to get going but Kate and Ian were able to point out tips to help me to improve. My husband was also a natural in the kayak and we really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the river and its inhabitants. Kate and Ian pointed out different wildlife and helped us to celebrate our daughters birthday on the river. We loved our time on the river and this was the real highlight of our holiday and a birthday our daughter won't forget. Our teenagers both agreed that this was the best day and would like to kayak again.
We would highly recommend this activity and in comparison to excursions organised by our travel company this was far better value, was tailored to our family's skills and was a much more personalised experience. We also got to see more of Bulgaria than a busy hotel and beach resort.
Thanks again Kate and Ian!
