Me and my friend booked a day trip to the Boyana church and Rila monastery online including prepaid entrance to the church and audio guide. We found out that the entrance to the Boyana church is actually much cheaper if you buy on site (why is it so expansive online!?) and at no point we were told when we could... More

Went to Boyana in the morning.A smart move on the part of our guide as crowds had not yet built up sho very quiet and peaceful. A fascinating gem with wonderful frescoes.Be aware that you get just 10 minutes inside in order to protect the frescoes from condensation and this is closely monitored by the security people.

My wife and I, went on a one day tour to Boyana church and Rila Monastery. The tour itself is 8 hrs including travel, but felt like just two hours. The sites were amazing but what made it so incredible was how engaging our tour guide was. She answered all questions even the stupid ones :) and she was quite... More

Had a wonderful week snowshoeing in the Bulgarian mountains! Very well organized also when booking this private trip. Challenging trek with great fun. Our guide Lyuben took us to some nice peaks to see the great views. Friendly accommodations where we've been taken good care of. Really a recommendation.

We took a day trip to Boyana church and Rila monastery. Very knowledgeable guide, Constance, that told stories of both the sites and Bulgarien history and culture. Rila monastery should not be missed, the monastery church and buildings are amazing with the surrounding mountains towering on each side.

I booked this tour online with kind assistance by chat, answering all my questions ahead of the tour. As it was winter season I got picked up from the hotel and after collecting some more customers we drove to an outskirt of Sofia visiting a small but very special church called Boyana. then we took off to Rila mountain and...

Having been in Bulgaria twice before, I wanted to make sure that on this trip I did not miss the Rila Monastery with the one free day that I had. I am sure glad that I chose this tour mostly because our guide, Martin really made it interesting for us. I opted for the hotel pick-up and he arrived right... More

It was a perfect day trip. Though Boyana church is not very far from Sofia it is not easy to get there by public transportation and Rila mountains with Rila Monastery are an hour and half drive from Sofia. We booked the trip thinking it includes only the transportation, but it was much more. I very good guide telling history... More

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

I really enjoyed this day trip on 23 January to the Bojana Church and Rila Monastery with Constanza, who was a very knowledgeable guide and very helpful with everything. She explained so much, in so much detail, starting with the fascinating frescoes in the Bojana Church, and then giving us an extensive tour of Rila Monastery. It was great to... More
