Excellent opportunity to explore beyond Sofia for the day. A mini hike to the Stob Pyramids in a very tranquil setting and then on to the stunning Rila Monastery. Great lunch by the river. My guide, Orlin, was top notch: thoroughly knowledgeable about the places we visited, excellent English, very engaging. Arranged a detour to visit a winery so I could learn more about local wines and pick up a bottle or two. Punctual, very comfortable vehicle. Entirely recommended!

I can not recommend this tour enough. Our group was fortunate enough to have an incredibly knowledgeable tour guide, Nikola, who made the tour even greater then our expectations. We hiked up to St Ivans Cave instead of the Stob Pyramids however this was a very good experience. It is worth taking comfortable footwear with a bit of grip to make the hike easier. The Monastery itself is breath taking, hidden away in the mountains of Bulgaria. The local food tasting was delicious and a perfect end to our trip. This tour is definitely worth taking a day out of your trip for.
