We would like to thank Niall for her feedback and we were pleased to read that she found her vacation to be great. We just wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the ways in which this vacation was run in a responsible way. All 7 nights are spent in family run hotels, employing local people and sourcing local produce and products. During the stay in Bankso groups visit the Rila Monastery where you have the opportunity to purchase products made by the local communities. Few vacations have as little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as a walking and trekking trip and we provide water so travelers can refill their reusable water-bottles along the way.

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

The wildness of the mountains and the unspoilt terrain and spectacular views.

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

London

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

We stayed in a small family run hotel in a small village. Local produce was used as much as possible.

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

Very good. I learnt a lot about Bulgaria, about the wild life in the Rodope mountains and how this is being preserved. The people working in the hotel were very helpful and friendly and our guide and driver were excellent in every way.
