Reviews for Bulgaria self-guided hiking vacation


review 12 Aug 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Climbing Mount Vidran, the wildflowers in the Pirin and Rila Mountains, city tour of Sofia. Evening strolls in the village Govedartsi to soak up the atmosphere. Watching the cows being herded each evening into the village. Friendly Bulgarians. Good Bulgarian food and wine.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't underestimate the fitness needed for the walks. Previous vacations, walks have been easier than grading suggested. Not here the grading is more accurate so the strenuous walks are strenuous.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Benefited local employment and local businesses. Didn't think it had obvious environmental or conservation benefit.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very enjoyable. Bulgaria and its people were great.
