We had 2 tours with this company and overall both were enjoyable and worthwhile. The Plovdiv/Koprivshtitsa tour was excellent in terms of locations visited, but I can't help but feel our tour guide, Nikki, was quite disinterested. We were given the option to visit a...More

We started at 9am sharp at Alexander Nevsky Cathedrals in Sofia. It was a short ride about an hour to the Boyana church from the 11th century. Listed as one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites, Boyana Church was small and modest on the outside,...More

I seem to recall paying a modest fee at Boyana, but entry to Rila was free.
