Interesting tour, good guide, nice small group size. Very good value.
Excellent day out - after a little panic as I couldn't find the pick up point - it was in front of me!
The minibus was great as it was quite a long journey - far better than a coach which would have been slower and the tour would have ended in darkness.
Good value for money.
I and #39;m so glad I did the monastery tour - but the mini-bus ride there and back was truly miserable. Very narrow seats and packed to capacity it makes for an extremely uncomfortable experience. Do Not book this option if you are a tall person or even a little on the chunky side.
Excellent day tour - Martin the Tour Guide was excellent, with a good command of his subjects, altho a few questions left him stumped. Comfortable bus, on time - nice journey. All in all a great day out.
Tour is highly recommended except the recommended lunch place was unpleasant attitude of waiters.
The trip was really, really nice. I was amazed by the rural beauties of Bulgaria, especially the Rila monastery. Also, the tour guide, Martin, was more than great. Funny, smart and even cute! I highly reccommend it! :-)
The monastery is an real jewel, not destroyed by masstourism, a quiet place that will give you peace in your mind.

The tour was efficient, very organized and extremely fun! Our tour guide was great and the sites were amazing.
Awesome visit to the Monastery. Our guide was excellent and very kind.
The Rila Monastery was the highlight to my trip to Bulgaria so far. Even though the road trip was bumpy due to road conditions and took about 2 hours to get there, the scenic view of the mountains with autumn foliage at its peak was truly incredible. Our guide Martin was very friendly. And the friendly tour members were an added bonus. The bus picked up at my hotel. We all returned to Alexander Nevsky after the tour. I highly recommend that you take this tour if you have a chance!
Great tour with well-informed guide, Adrian. Took the time to engage with the group and share invaluable historic/cultural information with the group. Scenery was glorious; both locations are highly recommended (UNESCO can't be wrong, right?). Don't hesitate on booking!
Great trip. Rila Monastery and Boyana Church are well worth seeing. Great price too!

The Rila Monastery is not to be missed. It was the highlight of our stay in Sofia.
We had an excellent guide and we were a small group, everything was perfect.
