It was the driver, the guide, and I. The drive was terrible. The driver chose the wrong route even though I told him that it was congested. We got stuck in traffic and lost an hour because of him. He was also very rude. The monastery was beautiful and Melnik is an extremely charming little town. In summary, I highly recommend this trip but discourage everyone from choosing this company - go for a different one since I have also met much better guides.

Not worth going all the way as the driver didn't stop us anywhere during the drive to these places and we ended up sitting for almost 4 hours each way. The wine tasting was OK and their small museum was quite interesting. Carmen S.

Loved Melnick, a quaint village with some hiking thrown in. Our guide was great.

In the year 1215, Melnik emerged as a capital of an independent feudal principality, ruled by Despot Alexis Slav. The ruins of his fortress near the town are preserved till the present days. The houses in Melnik date from the National Revival period, with their interesting and typical architecture.

The region of Melnik is famous also with its specific sort of grape.
