I made the Boyana Church and Rila Monastery's tour with this agency. I was very satisfied with the organization: the small 8 seat bus was clean and new, the wifi on board worked very well and the service was on time. Unfortunately the driver-guide wasn't really knowledgeable (he was not a guide) since his explanation was completely lacking in some... More

The Boyana/Rila visits are definitely worth the visit, the guide and driver were nice and knowledgeable, it was all very interesting and the restaurant break was not an issue due to the cold up at the monastery. It is a very good option to visit both these places and probably the best option on a tight schedule. My only issue... More

We did the Rila Monastery/Boyana Church and the Plovidv/Bachovo Monastery day tours. Our guide Martin was fun and informative. It was a small group both days in a small van so were able to spend adequate time at each site.

Cons: -Neither guide nor driver introduced themselves - minimal information other than at Boyana Church and Rila Monastery. -No toilet stop on 2 hour journey back to Sofia. -Drop-off... More

My friends and I booked a day tour to Plovdiv, Starosel and Koprivshtitsa, and we had the most amazing time! Martin arrived early to pick us up and was a wonderful guide throughout the trip. The drive through all the locations was smooth and beautiful. Martin shared interesting insights throughout the tour, and was extremely attentive to our needs. We... More

We had a lovely trip with the wonderful guide Lubo (sorry, I know that's not spelt right!) who spoke great English and was very friendly and informed. As it's winter season we had a free collection from the hotel and then a few pickups around the city before we hit the road to Rila. The bus is small and comfortable.... More

Guide didn't have a lot of knowledge, behaved pretentious. Tour was a lot shorter than foreseen (Rila/Boyana). When we asked about the detour to the caves, the guide avoided to answer. When we said we asked because the previous group went there a few days earlier on the same trip, he turned and ignored us. Our friends going with the... More

This is a belated review. Back in April, I did two day tours with Traventuria, based on the very favourable reviews on TripAdvisor. Both were excellent (Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa, and Rila Monastery and Boyana Church). Online booking, confirmation and joining instructions were all good. Travel was in an air-conditioned mini-bus and there were around six people in each group. Giorgi... More
