In May 2016 we organized a trip with Svetoslav Velkov Company Manager. 6 days trip (10-16.4.2017) for 9 people 5 adults and 4 children. The trip was carefully planned and included a variety of attractions and experiences for children. The company's service is excellent and the instructors are professional and the price is definitely fair. Every other visit to Bulgaria... More

She was talking loudly to a driver for 2 hours on the way to monastery, she was not talking to us as a guide. Gave us very poor information in the church and monastery. She was not lisensed or qualified.... More

Visited Boyana Church and Rila Monastery which were both wonderful sites and definitely should be visited. The tour guide and operator was not bad but they didn't blow me away. I've given them a very good rating because the vehicle was very comfortable, the tour was easy to book plus good value and the guide was friendly. He clearly had... More

Me and my friend booked a day trip to the Boyana church and Rila monastery online including prepaid entrance to the church and audio guide. We found out that the entrance to the Boyana church is actually much cheaper if you buy on site (why is it so expansive online!?) and at no point we were told when we could... More

Went to Boyana in the morning.A smart move on the part of our guide as crowds had not yet built up sho very quiet and peaceful. A fascinating gem with wonderful frescoes.Be aware that you get just 10 minutes inside in order to protect the frescoes from condensation and this is closely monitored by the security people. Rila Monastry lived... More

My wife and I, went on a one day tour to Boyana church and Rila Monastery. The tour itself is 8 hrs including travel, but felt like just two hours. The sites were amazing but what made it so incredible was how engaging our tour guide was. She answered all questions even the stupid ones :) and she was quite... More

Had a wonderful week snowshoeing in the Bulgarian mountains! Very well organized also when booking this private trip. Challenging trek with great fun. Our guide Lyuben took us to some nice peaks to see the great views. Friendly accommodations where we've been taken good care of. Really a recommendation.
