With this full-day private tour, head into the mountains to see the celebrated Rila Monastery, where you can visit the monastery museum, see Rafail's Cross, and marvel at the frescoes in the Nativity of Mary church. Along the way, enjoy the sprawling mountain views, and stop for a lunch—at your own expense—to sample the local trout.
