If you're skiing/snowboarding - BOOK HERE!
Mar. 2020
Came to Borovets having learnt to ski before - but decided to be difficult and switch to snowboarding. My snowboard instructor (cannot remember his name I do apologise! - he was on his 10th tour I think) was amazing, and by the end of the 4th lesson we were going down reds comfortably - felt safe and in capable hands going down the slopes with him.

Meanwhile, my friends (we were all together on a Stag Do) were having skiing lessons with Stefan - who even let me join in on the afternoon sessions. He was very nice and ensured everyone felt comfortable with the difficulty - it was nice getting to know him throughout the week and he had some very good suggestions for restaurants.

Would highly recommend to anyone heading to Borovets.

Amazing ski trip !
Mar. 2020 • Friends
Went skiing with a group of friends and had a brilliant time! Everyone at Traventuria was so friendly and made the whole process so easy. Can’t speak highly enough of our ski instructor George , he catered excellently to the varying levels of the group and looked after us so well for the entire week and made sure we were all ok when most of the resort was shut down due to coronavirus - bringing us food and checking in on us constantly! We will be back for sure 😊

Borovets Ski Holiday
Mar. 2020 • Friends
Excellent service provided by Traventuria who made sure we had nothing to worry about as soon as we landed in Sofia Airport.
All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful but our instructor George really made the holiday, he went out of his way to make sure we all learned as much as possible while skiing and had an enjoyable holiday overall.
Varying skill levels and schedules were accommodated to, really can't recommend enough!!

5/5 Trip with Traventuria ski instructor Georgi
Mar. 2020 • Friends
Just back from skiing in Borovets and I highly recommend Traventuria for their service and our ski instructor Georgi. 10/10.

I am a beginner and did not know what to expect but Georgi was very encouraging and we had lots of laughs on the trip. Georgi went above and beyond looking after 11 girls from beginners to very experienced skiers.

We definitely didn't make it an easy week for him but he was very good to each one of us.

Looking forward to returning next year!

A Fantastic Trip
Mar. 2020 • Friends
This is my second time on a ski holiday in Borovets and second time booking with Traventuria and after the brilliant holiday we just had we couldn't imagine booking with any other company. There were 11 of us together, all with different skiing abilities and our fantastic instructor George took excellent care of every single one of us. Each of us improved so much over the course of the week and George went beyond what was expected of an instructor even bringing a picnic for lunch for all 11 of us up the mountain when the bars and restaurants closed due to the coronavirus. We will definitely be back next year!

11/10 🙌 Brilliant service!!
Mar. 2020 • Friends
Where do I begin, just finished a week skiing with 9 others in traventuria in Borovets. We rented our ski gear with them aswell and had no problems with it, quick and easy to get your gear and we were even a day later returning our stuff and they didn't fine us which was nice!

We had an instructor named George and I cannot recommend him enough!! He went above and beyond his duties for us, he is an excellent instructor, always has his eyes on the group to make sure everyone's doing good. The bar for food was closed at the top and he brought up food for a picnic for us which was great! He was able to handle our group which had varying levels of skiing and made everyone feel included and not bored.

I honestly can't explain how happy we were to have him, he is very good at teaching and as a nervous person I needed someone who would know when to push me or when I've reached my limit! He is well able to have fun too which is needed :D

I would highly recommend this company and in particular George. I just can't wait to get back to them next year, they really Made the holiday!

Badly organised
Mar. 2020
Apologies in advance for the wall of text but thought it would help convey our experience!

We organised hire of ski equipment and lift passes for 6 days and lessons for the first three days as well as transport to and from the airport (Sofia). I have been skiing for the last 15-20 years on and off and my partner has been for a week last year. I thought that as my partner was going to have lessons, and they were so cheap, I might as well join in and improve my technique. The transport from the airport and the ski hire all went very smoothly and was well organised (5/5) it was the lessons that really let it all down.

Day 1: It took till about 9:30 to get to the slopes which was not too bad considering we needed to get split into groups. The majority of people getting lessons seemed to be in the never skied - intermediate levels and there were only two of us in the "Advanced" group.
That morning we skied till around 11 am at which point our instructor told us he need to go and teach a different group. After a bit of hanging around he passed us over to another instructor who was teaching a group of 3 (two adults and a child who were still doing snowplough turns). This resulted in a lot of waiting around as you might expect and in the end the instructor told us we could continue on our own and meet at the bottom. After waiting for 30 minutes at the bottom we decided that rather that standing around we would keep going round the same run. We bumped back into them a little while later and the instructor told us to wait for them in a bar at the bottom of the slope for lunch. We headed down and waited in the bar he mentioned (where we found what was left of my partners ski group who had been "having lunch" for 1:30 min, half the group had given up on waiting and left on their own). After 45 minutes of waiting for our instructor to arrive i asked my partners instructor to call ours and was told he would be there in a minute. He arrived 15 minutes later having passed off the three people he was teaching to someone else. It was 1pm at this point and we headed back out and got in 1 run before he left us for the day.

Day 2: It snowed reasonably heavily during the day (about 30cm over the whole day). We were with a different instructor (the third now) and headed up the gondola (it was warm enough that the snow was falling as rain at resort level so we wanted to get higher up). There are 4 main runs at the top of the resort, a blue, two reds and a black. We first went down the blue and got some good pointers on technique to work on, then we went down the blue again, and again... when we asked if we could do one of the other runs we were told they were too dangerous for us to go down due to the thick snow and if we hurt ourselves he was worried we may sue him... He then took us back down to the lower part of the resort even though we pointed out we wanted to stay high to avoid the rain. When we got to the bottom he finally agreed and we went back up the gondola but he did not seem to be in a good mood and smoked in gondola with us! At the top he called a lunch stop, luckily only 40 min, and then we went back down the blue a few times till he left us at 2pm.

Day 3: This was by far the best day, we had the same instructor as the day before and did lots of runs in the morning (we were now allowed to do reds and one black as the visibility was better). The instructor seemed much happier and was very helpful. He accepted that we did not want to stop for lunch and organised to meet us after he had had lunch, perfect!

The main issue i had with the lessons was the lack of organisation at the beginning and the attitude of all three of the instructors we had. All three said they did not enjoy skiing or teaching anymore with the last one going so far as saying the was fed up with pointing out the same mistakes in peoples skiing and answering the same questions over and over again. I enjoyed the last day of lessons but wished that that was the only day of lessons i had taken.

In conclusion: The transfer and equipment hire are great, would recommend. The lessons are probably fine if you are a beginner and don't mind maximising your time skiing. If you are more experienced and want to squeeze as much skiing out of your holiday as possible then i strongly recommend not getting lessons.

We always strive to provide the best products and services to our clients and the information you give us helps us improve. Since you have posted this review, we were investigating your disappointment. Our instructors are human beings and sometimes they make mistakes, but also even on our bad days we strive to provide best quality service and their behavior is unacceptable, so immediate measures were taken.

I wish you have reported the case on day one, so our local manager or our representative would do everything possible to solve it, as every customer is the highest priority for every one of us. Actions would've been taken immediately and day 2 and day 3 would not differ. I would love for us to have another chance to impress you and to show you that every word of disappointment is being taken into account. We will be happy to have a second chance. Safe travels!
