My boyfriend, his brother and I did a 2-day trek with Niky. I communicated and coordinated everything with Lyuben, who was always available and answered all of my questions and concerns. Unfortunately, the weather was not too nice, as it rained on both days (even hailed on day 2). Because of the bad weather, we were not able to climb... More

Nadia was an incredible guide - she provided the perfect balance of independence,... More

What an incredible two days in the Rila Mountains! Lyuben was super responsive and helpful in planning my trek as a solo female traveler, and my guide Margarita was very knowledgeable. Our overnight in the highest mountain hut in Bulgaria was peaceful and comfortable (and had great food!), and I really appreciated that aside from mingling with tourists at the... More

Lyuben suggested a great itinerary which matched our requirements perfectly. He sent us maps and truly excellent route descriptions, booked all the required accommodation (both mountain huts and a guesthouse in Bansko), booked taxi transfers for us, provided detailed information about bus transfers, and arranged for our non walking luggage to be transported from Sofia to Bansko ahead of us....
