I would recommend this day trip. The bus was easy to find behind Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Our guide, Marina, was very friendly and very knowledgable. Our first stop was at Boyana Church where Marina schowed us the inside of the church and gave us great information about its history and the frescos.
I enjoyed the tour of the monastery the most as we got a lot of important information about the frescos and the history of the monastery. It was great that we had some free time. So, we could have a wander around the museums, have some food, and just enjoy the sights.
Great guide, great food, amazing location! My only complaint is that I would like more time at the monastery. But the food was delicious and Boyana church was very interesting! Enjoyed it very much!
We travelled first to Boyana Church and then on to Rila Monastery. Both were well worth seeing. Rila was especially interesting. Our guide, Marina was informative and friendly, in other words, a perfect hostess. Highly recommended.
Nicely organised tour. Guide very knowledgeable. Comfortable bus with wifi.
This was a very good value for money tour. These are two must-see Unesco Heritage sites and our guide Lubo was a very good host. The journey time of around 2 hours each way leaves ample time for Boyana groups of 12 are only allowed 10 mins in the church but this is enough time to take in the splendour of the place and Rila where you have around 2 hours. Great tour.
Wonderful monastery in a spectacular setting the fabulous artwork worth the journey alone, Lyubo the guide was extremely informative and helpful

This was an excellent tour. Our guide provided the right amount of information. If you are in Sofia this is a must do tour. The Monastery itself is spectacular the frescos in Boyana Church a special experience.
Definitely a must see when visiting Bulgaria. This is probably the best tour for the price I have ever done. It is so incredibly cheap that I thought it would just so so. It exceeded my expectations by far.
Definitely recommend. The monastery is beautiful. So many colors. Unlike many other tours, this tour is definitely worth the price you pay.
This was exactly what I wanted, it made getting to Rila Monastery and Boyana church super easy. Pick up at Nevsky Cathedral was easy and the guide was good. There was some free time to explore and have lunch at Rila Monastery.
